Grand Cafe De Bank

Reviewed By Ronaldo070 - The Hague, The Netherlands

I've been here recently on a Wednesday night to have some dinner. The weather was good so we had dinner on the Terrace outside. We had some bread with garlic butter and some other sauces to begin and as main course I had a Turkey steak with fries and a salad. Everything tasted good, especially the steak which was covered with cranberry and pineapple sauce (sounds weird but it's good!). As a desert I had a wafel with ice cream which tasted excellent but the plate could have been a bit bigger. Personnel was friendly and helpful. This grand cafe used to be a bank which you can still see in the interior and the menus have all kind of financial terms.
Overall a very good experience so I can really recommend this restaurant!

Gringo's

Reviewed By Olaf1965 - Doetinchem, The Netherlands

Gringo’s has known times when the interior was innovative and food surprising. Those times are disappearing: ambiance lively but too loud and bad acoustics. Steaks lower quality than they used to be, and smaller than they used to be against higher prices. Salad must have been prepared and held in the fridge for a long time: no fresh salad leaves, taste of refrigerator humidity dominating, the masking with thick dressing did not take that away.Fries were nice but served not completely hot anymore. Price-quality levels have gone out of balance too: price too high for what is offered. We said the salad was not tasting ok and not nice. We got apologiesand she would tell the chef. No solution offered and were fully charged. After almost 20 years of returning to Gringo’s, we will have to let go of Gringo’s.

De Gouden Karper

Reviewed By pbmeyersr - Estepona, Spain

This restaurant is an ancient nice restaurant, different from the usual establishments, really thorough Dutch cuisine in a character-full environment. Nice for lunch and dinner. Good food and quality. We went here during many years, and never were disappointed. You feel yourself in an other world with typical Dutch hospitality. Highly recommended, especially for people who prefer a change from the ordinary.

Paddy's Food & Drinks

Reviewed By thijsrensing - Lichtenvoorde

This restaurant used to be a Irish pub style bar, but after an extensive make-over and adding a new kitchen with special Mibrasa grill it now also offers delicious meals.
We had a small lunch during a day shopping in Doetinchem at this restaurant, and immediately booked our evening diner for the same night.
The menu is good, and preperation is excellent.

Klein restaurant in de gezellige Grutstraat in Doetinchem. De enige echte sushi zaak in Doetinchem. Entourage leuk maar niet top. Sushi heerlijk. Alles vers. Wok. Specialiteiten matig.
Ga er sushi eten daar ligt de kracht!

De Zaak

Reviewed By PDanielBS - Den Haag, Nederland

We had our valentines day dinner at this restaurant this year. The whole entourage was excellent, they had hart shaped confetti and candles on all the tables very cozy!
Outside the Carnaval parties where going on, but the atmosphere inside was a perfect mix of quite and cheerful valentines.
The waiting staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. We had the surprise 5 course Bites menu which was a very well balanced mix of different types of dishes and enough to fill but not feel bloated.
All in all a very nice restaurant and at a very reasonable price. I would absolutely recommend "De Zaak"

Wapen van Heeckeren

Reviewed By Lindaatje2012 - Zwijndrecht, The Netherlands

While driving through the countryside of Hummelo, we happen to drive past this wine bar/restaurant, saw the "winebar" sign, hit the brakes and turned the car around, and we were not sorry we did... The winebar is located in a former inn, and the building dates from the early 19th century! The current (and very young) owners just opened the place a couple of weeks ago, redecorated the interior and gave it a modern and light feel. Since it was around 3pm, we had some wines and a plate of charcuterie, in their lovely garden Terrace, under some big old trees. They have an extensive winelist, with mostly french wines. They do lunch and dinner, which we did not get to taste, but we will be surely back for more.

Smoks

Reviewed By Grzegorz F

My colleagues took me there for a "small" lunch. They recommended traditional Dutch croquet. After a few minutes I saw in the front of me a big wooden desk with croquet in a roll, fried egg in the second roll, French fries, salad and a cup of tomato cream. Well, small Dutch lunch... :). Anyway it was very good, so I hope one day I will come back for dinner.
