Where to Eat in Eindhoven: The Best Restaurants and Bars

March 11, 2018 Enriqueta Cusson

Eindhoven is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, but you’d never know it from the high-tech industry and cutting-edge design it’s currently known for. If you have kids obsessed by all things wheeled, they will love the trucks at the DAF Museum.

De Luytervelde

Reviewed By Anita v - Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Visited the Luytervelde over the weekend for a private function. As usual the food was great but especially the warmth of the reception should be mentioned.
Next to that we discovered this weekend that a new take out service "afgehaald.com" makes it possible to order food here and pick it up yourself. I made a great impression on my veggie friends with their excellent pumpkin soup.

1910 Restaurant

Reviewed By Wild_Zucchini - Moscow, Russia

Taking a chef's menu is quite entertaining: you can let the waiters know what you like and dislike but what you get at the end is still is a surprise. Food is really beautifully served. I've been there twice and both times took the chef's menu. Despite the small portions I was really full at the end.

Complete, honest, and without too much fuss. Every moment of the day is Dijk9 worth a visit! Restaurant In the cozy restaurant or sit out on the Terrace, one of the few spots under the trees in the city, you can perfect place for a quick lunch or dinner in a relaxed atmosphere.

We decided to skip the gastromenu and instead ordered al a carte; though it appeared everyone around us was eating from the gastromenu (to...MoreHello Steven, Thank you very much for your feedback and recommendation.

Lithos

Reviewed By Steatosi - Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Definitely one of the best places in Eindhoven. If not the best. No kidding. I regularly eat Greek here for a simple reason: good food, friendly staff, full plates. The owners (which are real Greek) are always in the room, making sure everything is perfect. This is already a positive sign, in my opinion. I recommend Tiriopita and Gyros. If I have to find a negative point, that's the Retzina wine. At the end of the dinner you won't be able to stand-up easily so full you'd be. Price aligned to Eindhoven standard: 20-25€ pp. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Reviewed By Darrenireland - Dublin

we arrived without a reservation on a busy saturday night and got a table overlooking the city.
Service was fantastic.
No burger on the menu which was strange for this sort of establishment.
We both ordered fajitas , beef and chicken and they were ok. a bit bland to be honest.
didnt seem like they were seasoned.
we asked for more wraps and chips which were given to us for free.
i left disappointed and would not return.

Wiesen Restaurant

Reviewed By Flyers007Dublin - Dublin, Ireland

During our visit for 2 nights/3 days in Eindhoven my fiance and I had lunch at Wiesen, a 1* Michelin starred restaurant, on a Saturday in September 2016.
We wanted to have a Michelin dining experience, so we checked what options we had and reserved a table. Wiesen was the only one open on our full day in the city. We liked the modern cuisine.
During weekends the restaurant accepts walk ins.
The chef patron is Yuri Wiesen and his wife Jessie is responsible for the front of house.
The restaurant is located in the oldest and most beautiful part of town. It had a very romantic feel, being surrounded by classic buildings, boutiques, cafes and restaurants.
The young and dynamic members of staff welcomed us warmly - we were the first to arrive -
and left us the choice if we wanted to sit inside or on the small Terrace outside. We decided to take a table on the Terrace. The weather was nice and warm, so it was wonderful.
The furniture was elegant and made of wood and iron. There was a cactus on each table.
We ordered a bottle of still Bru water and four glasses of Natureo Muscat (non-alcoholic) 2015 by Torres. The wine maker is a pioneer in de-alcoholized white wines.
The staff was already aware of our dietary requirements, so we got totally different greetings [Amuse-Bouches] from the kitchen than others did, because the regular one included seafood and looked very stylish and creative.
Our greetings from the kitchen were onion tarts served on stone, small potatoes, sour cream and caviar, to be eaten with a mother of pearl spoon, seaweed crisps with pea cream dip and one of the highlights, the Golden Egg with Scottish smoked salmon, egg yolk, sauce Hollandaise and brioche. The Golden Egg is a signature dish of Yuri Wiesen.
All the dishes were delicious and came on very different crockery.
To accompany our 4 course surprise menu - our first - we received sourdough bread in a wooden bowl. It was made for sharing and everyone could tear a piece off the loaf. The conidments were olive oil, butter and salt, served on stoneware.
There was a tiny spoon to serve the salt.
Our first course was seabass, guacamole, avocado and edible flowers. It was of course international, but reminded us of a Japanese dish.
It was followed by grilled mackerel, fregola (a pasta type from Sardinia), which had the texture of a creamy risotto, luke warm tomato, beurre blanc, edible flowers, green asparagus and tomato cracker.
The main course was duck with summer vegetables, beetroot and potato mash.
With our dessert a wonderful raspberry millefeulle we enjoyed two cappuccinos. The millefeulle was made with thin crispy, sheets and served with raspberry sorbet. The plate was designed in a snow pattern.
While the atmosphere and other international diners's behaviour was overall good, a German couple destroyed it a bit.
It seemed they weren't aware they had joined a one Michelin stared restaurant, even though the star is prominently on display, among other accolades.
They didn't wait to be seated and simply took a table beside us. She exclaimed loudly in German that she was hungry and would definitely eat something, while he replied he wasn't hungry. They ordered beer. W|hen they received the greetings from the kitchen it seemed they realized they had ended up in a fine dining establishment and suddenly the lady wasn't hungry anymore. Still it didn't keep them from enjoying the greetings from the kitchen. The staff was a bit taken aback when the couple didn't want to have a meal. After they had finished their drinks he snipped with his fingers and raised his arm to get the attention of one of the waitresses to get the bill.
We were glad when they left. Unfortunately the waitresses were for a short while a bit cooler towards us, because the Germans had been so disruptive, but after a short time all services received by the staff was warm and welcoming again.
We both believe there should be a rethink in regards of walk ins at Wiesen.
Our bill was 133.50 Euro (ca. 152.40 USD).
Of course we had also a peek into the restaurant inside. It's a bit darker, yet elegant, a combination of classic and modern, and lots of brown colors were used.
The toilets had interesting rock sinks.
We would return again, because we loved the great and colorful food, the creative presentation and the friendly staff.

The lunch was good value and next time we would love to try their five course surprise menu.
Would we recommend this restaurant to a friend? YES!
Would we want to enjoy luch/dinner at this restauranr again in our future? YES!

Reviewed By AWSparks - Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Took my wife for dinner here on a quiet Sunday evening in December 2016.
Parking no problem on the main street.
Friendly reception and consistent, friendly and unobtrusive service.
Servers seemed knowledgeable enough about the food and wine without trying to impress by telling a long story.
I think definitely worth a second visit - I liked this place.

Friture Martin Zwerts

Reviewed By John A - Oxford, United Kingdom

We had an e-mail alert from Trip Advisor about this friture. (Not sure how Trip Advisor knew we were frequent visitors to Eindhoven.)
From Spring to Autumn, we stay at the campsite 't Witven in Veldhoven, so as we were there for the weekend 2nd - 3rd May, we cycled to Friture Martin Zwerts on the Boschdijk on Saturday evening to taste the famous frites. They were the best we have ever tasted throughout Europe. All Dutch frites are better than anywhere else, but these were excellent.
We cycled back (20 km. round trip) on Sunday in torrential rain to taste these fantastic frites once more before travelling back to England the next day.
Why can't a Dutch person start a friture in Britain?
Congratulations on your excellent friture!

ILIO'S

Reviewed By Nikolas N

Our first visit at ILIO'S restaurant was truly a revelation. The food was excellent, offering a great variety of classic Greek tastes (meat grill mix is especially recommended). The people were indeed welcoming and service was impecable. The perfect example of the famous Greek hospitality and cuisine. Undeniably the place to eat while in Eindhoven.
