Welcome to the Flying Dutchman!

The Flying Dutchman restaurant is located on the lush groundsof the Inn at Otter Crest in Oregon about 7 miles north of the quaint fishing town of Newport. Nestled high on the edge of a bluff overlooking the sea, patrons can enjoy breathtaking views and wildlife (perhaps even catch a glimpse of a whale passing by) while enjoying great food and wines.

In the summer of 2009, restaurant veterans and partners Frederic Fouassier, Ed Millerstrom and Ramiro Ramirez visited the Inn at Otter Crest and instantly fell in love with its stunning scenery and friendly atmosphere. Realizing the restaurant’s incredible potential and ideal location, it only seemed natural for them to join forces and orchestrate the rebirth of the Flying Dutchman after having been closed for over 18 months by the previous tenants. Ed Millerstrom the successful owner for 17 years of ICM Restaurant located on the river in Old Town Florence knew they would have the perfect formula to offer locals and tourists alike.

The Flying Dutchman is a testament of the partner's passion for food and service. We pride ourselves on being unique and deliciously different. The Flying Dutchman is a bistro style, casual family dining eatery serving breakfast lunch and dinner. The menu is comprised of over 120 different dishes with an emphasis on sustainable wild caught seafood, grass fed beef and the freshest seasonal ingredients available. We feature a wide range of small plates and appetizers, tasty seafood and steak entrees, a selection of special thin crust pizzas and pasta dishes along with a variety of fresh salads. All the oils we use in preparing our foods are Trans Fat FREE. The partner's vision was to create a menu offering a large variety of foods at a fair price in order to make it easy and affordable for everyone.

We also proudly feature a variety of local micro beers and regional wines as well as offering a large selection of imported and domestic wines and beers.

For those sports fanatics, come enjoy our two 50 inch flat screen TVs in the bar lounge area where we serve our entire menu all day long.

Historical Facts about the legend of the Flying Dutchman

The legend of The Flying Dutchman is said to have started in 1641 when a Dutch ship sank off the coast of the Cape of Good Hope. Captain van der Decken was pleased. The trip to the Far East had been highly successful and at last, they were on their way home to Holland. As the ship approached the tip of Africa, the captain thought that he should make a suggestion to the Dutch East India Company (his employers) to start a settlement at the Cape on the tip of Africa, thereby providing a welcome respite to ships at sea.

He was so deep in thought that he failed to notice the dark clouds looming and only when he heard the lookout scream out in terror, did he realize that they had sailed straight into a fierce storm. The captain and his crew battled for hours to get out of the storm and at one stage it looked like they would make it. Then they heard a sickening crunch - the ship had hit treacherous rocks and began to sink. As the ship plunged downwards, Captain van der Decken knew that death was approaching. He was not ready to die and screamed out a curse: "I will round this Cape even if I have to keep sailing until doomsday!" So, even today, whenever a storm brews off the Cape of Good Hope, if you look into the eye of the storm, you will be able to see the ship and its captain - The Flying Dutchman. Don't look too carefully, for the old folk claim that whoever sights the ship will die a terrible death.
