We visited the Grand Cafe for a lunch. We had some good sandwiches and the service was ok, but for the rest it is just average. There was nothing wrong with our lunch, but we could not find any reason why we should come back in the future.

De Drie Gezusters - Grand Cafe & Terras

Welcome at 'De Drie Gezusters'! Groningen and the ‘De Drie Gezusters’ are inextricably connected with each other. Situated in the exact centre of the city of Groningen, one could argue it is the most prolific Grand Café in town since the early 70’s. Eithe

Sporting a flashy visage the three pub bistros do their number across the Grote Mkt cheek to cheek.There is a large outdoor seating area which gets very crowded on a sunny day. Other there is a huge space with the longest bar in town and booths and tables inside.Service is prompt and quick and your server is not above a little chat.A great place to bunk down especially when a music performance is on in the square.

This is nice, big restaurant, where I would say that you will almost always find a place, no matter what. There is plenty of space, the food is nice, and reasonably priced. The staff is very polite and they are really paying attention to the customers happiness. I like this place and I certainly recommend it. The spareribs are delicious, just be sure you can handle it (because it is a lot of food).Dear Manuela V,Thank you so much for your great review and 4 star rating! I am glad to read that you like it at Restaurant WEEVA!Hoping to see you again some time soon.Kind regards,Renate - Restaurant WEEVA

This is a 3 level restaurant tucked away at a lively thorough in the city. Servicing staff is helpful and really put an effort to make the evening enjoyable. We talk the 3 course menu, which consisted of an starter with 3 types of meat (tartare, “bitterball”, slice of meat) followed by duck. Well I knew I was gambling, but this is not the place where they know how to prepare a duck breast. It was not tender, juicy as it should be. Please pay attention. All in all I judge this at a okish place, just above par

I chose this restaurant for my b-day dinner and did not regret that. Stylish and at the same time casual and cosy this place offers a great food experience. There is no fixed menu there, but they create a selection of dishes which is changed weekly. Seasonal and local ingredients all freshly prepared for you - really amazing. Great service. I do not eat meat so I told that when we were making reservations, and there was no awkward moment, my husband got his meat dishes, I got fish) It is nice to inform, since the restaurant kinda decides your menu for you)))) To sum this all up - definitely recommend this place!

This restaurant is a fantastic experience.... We were two couples, who visited Houdt van Eten and we had great expectations after reading the restaurants reviews, and we were definitely not disappointed.We had a 5 course Dinner that blew us away, including a 5 course wine menu, an extra bottle of wine, and fantastic service from a young guy, and the price was only 60 Euro per person.An extra nice feature at this restaurant is, that they have an open kitchen, so you can follow the making of your Dinner....

We had a wonderful evening with family from Indonesia, Groningen, Oude Pekela, San Fransisco and Sydney and while the 'locals' knew the restaurant very well for the out-of-towners it was a lovely surprise. The food was delicious (doing very well with gluten and lactose intolerances) but what really set it apart was the friendly and attentive service.Can highly recommend it and will certainly go back when we get the chance.

We decided on the qualification the restaurant had. We had very good expectations. A good welcome, one of the young owners received us with a very friendly smile. The wine arrived, it was fine. Unfortunately for us, the service was very bad. We had to wait for the food for more than 2 hours, let's just say a bit too long. They are not prepared to attend well and in time the tables that the restaurant has.It would be better less tables, and satisfied customers.
