The Leeuwarden Lounge is an Afghan tapas restaurant. 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.

Eetcafe Spinoza is a cosy restaurant in a beautiful historical building. Next to their choices of meat and fish, they are known for their excellent vegetarian and vegan options. Behind the buildind you can also dine in their garden. Location: Eewal 50-52, tel: 0582129393

At Mimma you can discover the authentic homemade Italian Food. The roots of owners Donatella and Cosmo lie in Umbria, the green heart of Italy. They give the dishes from that region their own culinary twist. The staff are also from there and you can dine here all evening. That is also our tip: book a little later in the evening (eg 7.30 pm) and order a dish for each course. This way you have a delicious culinary night out and you are still ready before the Italian dinner time that starts around 23:00! Location: Kleine Kerstraat 19, Tel: 0582504990

Eindeloos might not look like this from the outside, but it’s 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. Location: Korfmakersstraat 17, Open: Tue-Sat: 18:00 – late, Tel: 058 2130835
