Voila!

Great Bit of grub served by a very knowledgeable waiter! Secret menu was good, a few more surprises may have been good but the overall look and taste of the food was out standing.

Fine dining experience in a very comfortable and friendly environment. 5 course chef's menu exists out of first course, soup, main course, cheese platter and dessert and always contains surprising and delicious flavour combinations. Don't let the chef's/surprise menu put you off - all though very well done and presented in an exquisite manner it is very recognisable food that... More

Like others before me, the idea behind the meal - surprise dishes sounded wonderful. The execution was beyond my expectations, with dishes both surprising and tasty. The meal certainly takes time, about 3 hours, but that's part of the fun. Would highly recommend

The nice thing on Voila is that you have no idea what they will serve you. The only choice is a 5 course dinner. The food is very good from taste and performance. There is one "problem" from our point of view: we were early and the time between the courses is too long. We have the impression they start... More

There is no downside to this restaurant. The menu is prix fixe, course by course wine accompaniments are offered. Two of us had a remarkable meal for 120 euros including (much) wine. Service is attentive but languorous; the staff is charming, the room is nice. I'd happily eat here every month (and may have the opportunity.....).

Had a great dinner with friends in Voila. Voila serves a fixed 5-course menu for a very reasonable 38,50 euro. The dishes were all delicious; fine-dining quality with a bit of fun and excitement in them. The produce is sourced organic and locally. Service was very good. Definitely coming back!

Great place to visit if you have some money to spent. You cannot just walk in, you have to make a reservation and tell them your diet requirements like vegetarians or allergies and how many courses you would like. They don't have a menu, so everybody eats the same thing. Therefor they can order the exact amount of products they... More

Voila is one of my favorite restaurants in Groningen! Emphasis on organic and local products of the season. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food of high standards and prepared with a lot of creativity. The surprise menu takes the whole evening so would recommend starting a bit early.
