From the outside it doesn’t look like this, but Eindeloos is one of the best restaurants of Leeuwarden. They don’t have a menu here, you can say what you don’t like and how many courses you’d like to have. Everything afterwards is a surprise in the hands of chef cook Willem Schaafsma. He likes to work with locally sourced seasonal ingredients.
Just a short walk from the city you can find restaurant Wannee, where you can experience the Dutch cuisine. The concept from the restaurant is 80:20. Eighty percent vegetables and 20 percent meat. Eighty percent from Dutch soil and waters and 20 percent international. The restaurant is run by Hotel Management students from Stenden university. The students are still learning, so they do make their little mistakes, but this also has it’s charm. Because of this the prices are much lower from what you’d normally pay for a restaurant like this.
The Leeuwarden Lounge is an Afghan tapas restaurant. It´s the perfect choice if you want to have something else for a change. It’s not the restaurant where you go for a quick dinner. You go to the Leeuwarden Lounge to forget about time, talk to your friends and relax. They’ve got a few comfortable lounge sofa’s which are perfect for that, but it is also possible to sit on a normal table and chair. Here you can choose between all the different tapas they offer. If you don´t really know what to choose, you can also order their menu and let yourself be surprised. You will get 6 tapas courses for only 15 Euro. You can also head here to lounge with your friends and just have a drink. To finish off in eastern atmosphere’s you can order a Sisha.
Unia 12 might be the smallest restaurant in Leeuwarden. Inside you feel like you are in someone’s living room. This makes you feel welcome and at home. The restaurant is run by two guys, Titus and Theo, a cook and waiter. Every week they have a different ‘aanschuifmenu‘ (to sit down to table- menu) for only 12 Euro. This is a 3 courses menu that includes two choices for starters, two choices for mains and the dessert is always a surprise. Don’t expect haute cussine but just plain good food that’s made with passion. Besides the aanschuifmenu there is also a regular menu card if you like to have more options and you can also go here for lunch. After you had your dinner you are more than welcome to stay for another drink.
