Arnhem Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Arnhem

September 17, 2017 Kiesha Cripe

A sizable city in its own right, Arnhem is best known today as the site of one of the most famous battles of World War II. Given city rights in 1233, it has long been at the center of conflicts because of its strategic location on the banks of the Rhine River. The Battle of Arnhem, part of Operation Market Garden, was fought in September 1944. Advancing Allied forces, in large part due to a series of mistakes, failed to secure a key bridge and suffered defeat, delaying the Allied advance into Germany until the following spring. The 1977 movie "A Bridge Too Far" was based on the events here.

Batavia

Reviewed By ginger23_12 - London, United Kingdom

I would go back. The place was packed at 8.00 on a Friday night suggesting the locals like it. We really enjoyed the food - we had the rijs tafel which was varied, tasty and very generous. The service was very patchy and the wine list was white, red or rose! We settled for beer after one glass of the wine. We had a great night and I would go back.

Mantra Indian Restaurant

Authentic vegetarian and non vegetarian dining in a cozy ambiance. Probably the best Indian food in town.

Reviewed By RaghuNair - Doha, Qatar

Nice Indian restaurant serving very good Indian food with friendly staff. It seems to be a popular place. On both days we went the restaurant was crowded and had to wait quite some time to get what we ordered. But the food was worth the wait. I forgot my phone and the charming lady serving the food came running out to give the phone. Highly appreciated and recommended to visit when you are in Arnhem

Visited this place on 8th May. Arrived at8pm, but was told that the kitchen was closing at8.30 and that we should hurry to order. No English menu available, but waitress was happy to translate for us. Its a tapas kind of place, you order plates and they come not necessarily in order you'd like them to. Nachos- very large portion, empanadas with goats cheese- I didn't like these as I didn't understand that they contain goat cheese, but my husband loved them. Pizza- it came with egg mayo salad in the middle of it- rather bizarre! My mixed salad was standard, under dressed. Over all- not impressed at all with the food, not to my liking.

't Amusement

&apos;t Amusement is the restaurant of chef Estee Strooker (26). As a 20-year-old girl she opened the restaurant in 2011 after she won the program Masterchef Netherland.<br>Now, more than five years later, she is still as passionate as she was when she started.<br>Along with manager Leon de Rijke and their super passionate young team &apos;t Amusement gives you a warm welcome!<br><br>&apos;t Amusement serves creative cuisine in different surprise menus.<br>Every month there is a new menu of the season. At &apos;t Amusement have the possibility to dine a whole evening but it is also possible to have a quick menu. You can choose from a 3-course menu or 5- or 7-course chefs menu.<br><br>At &apos;t Amusement you can enjoy pure flavors, creatively presented, with respect to the origin.<br>Besides letting guest enjoy their food, &apos;t Amusement has a higher purpose; letting guest think about the current food industry. This by making a conscious choice of ingredients from the season, only to work with "the whole animal" and MSC caught fish. And off course by finding a good balance between vegetables, meat and fish. <br> <br>The wine list consists of a not too wide choice of European wines. We have a great choice of biodynamic and natural wines. <br><br>&apos;t Amusement is located near Rijnkade. Perhaps not the first corner you will see as you walk through the city. But once you&apos;re inside you will be welcomed in a warm and a bit quirky entourage. In summer you can dine in our (covered by a tent) courtyard.

Estee Stooker runs a tight ship in her establishment, Amusement. Menu is inventive and good. The place is frequented by hipsters. Being an older male weighing close to 100 kg, I am a bit afraid to go in. Constant fear of breaking some of the fragile entourage, getting stuck in the Italian design chairs.

Reviewed By Lamu99 - Nairobi, Kenya

This is the only Asian restaurant I visit anywhere in the whole world. Generally, I dislike Asian food - too greasy, too filling and too quickly digested but this restaurants is in a league of its own and it excels.
The food is well prepared, carefully presented and tastes great. The ability to pick and choose from the menu also makes it exciting and, if you want a surprise, ask the staff to make something up for you. The staff clearly enjoy working here and the enthusiasm passes to the customers.

The both of us enjoyed lunch here. Tomato soup and a small salad with halibut and shrimp. Both were well prepared and very tasty. The soup is a bit spicy, which I prefer. The salad was freshly prepared and well filled with seasoning.
Prices are very reasonable. Nice music & great atmosphere. Friendly service.

Sandwichbar in the centre of Arnhem. Either take-away or stay-in. We have amazing sandwiches such as Pulled Pork, Vegetarian or Slowroast Beef.

Reviewed By F_Arnhem - Arnhem, The Netherlands

Was stunned by the choice of sandwiches this place offers. Choosing one was hard so I tried two!
One Pulled Pork Sandwich, because it's claimed to be the house's speciality. The other one was the monthly special Vitello Tonato Sandwich.
In one word: Exellent! The Vitello was very, very tasty and the Pulled Pork is amazing.
Worth a visit when you're around.
