De Centrale

This cavernous space used to house a student fraternity, which has now relocated to the basement, but it has since been converted into a gorgeous, airy restaurant with an excellent tasting menu.


The menu is Dutch, with a focus on local products and creative preparation. Most of the plates are small and you’re meant to order more than one. Otherwise, they have a four, five or six course tasting menu which changes regularly.

The menu rotates so often that it’s difficult to point to a single dish or dishes to try. If you’re going for dinner, the tasting menu is the best bet. The soups and the meat preparations are very nice.


The interior is spacious, with high ceilings and a complicated layout, due to the fact that it’s a former market hall. There’s a lot of cool art on the walls, some of which is for sale. You can also grab a drink at the bar if you’re waiting for a table.


It’s all table service and the service is really good. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive.


There’s a regular English-language menu. They have a lot of supplement options, posted on a wall using a projector, that are only in Dutch. The wine list is excellent. You should make a reservation on the weekend.


Lunch will cost around €20 per person and dinner around €40.
