Restaurant
$$$$
“Make sure to bring a well-filled wallet for this michelin starred restaurant of chef Sergio Herman. Set in a fully renovated church, the ambiance is unique and the food and wines are worth it. They do have a ''simpler'' food bar upstairs, if you'd like to grab a bite in a less formal setting. Reserve weeks/months ahead. ”

Brasserie
$$
“Not the most fancy interior, but cozy enough for a quick lunch or dinner. They have one or two vegan options and a small kids menu. I tried the Chicken Poké Bowl, with steamed rice and crispy veggies, which was super tasty and more then enough! My vegan friend had the Tofu Poké Bowl, which she also enjoyed. Located on the cosy square Dageraadplaats in walking distance from the flat - 15 minutes or so. Lots of eating options on the same square too and a small kids playground. ”

Thai Restaurant
$$
“Looking for asian food full of flavours? This small restaurant will take you right to Asia with its colourful ambience, authentic smell and friendly staff. A selection of Thai, Cambodian and Vietnamese dishes that are pure joy. End the evening with drinks on ground floor cafe Zeezicht - a true establishment. Check out their website and call / email for reservation, to make sure you get space! (perfect to do at least a day in advance, although you might get lucky as they tend to keep a table or two for walk in guests)”
