Local & creative

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.

Had dinner here with a befriend couple. The wine menu suited the dishes very well. The dishes were all properly sized and well balanced. Highly recommended! Do make a reservation timely.

Probably I had too high expectations after the many excellent reviews from the web and from some friends. Somehow, the night I went, I was a bit disappointed, both for the service, very slow, and for the choice of dishes/wines. Maybe it was just a bad night, so I will try it again.

Whether it was the excellent lighting, astounding service, or sublime food, Voila is truly a revelation. The culinary experience of Voila is unique. A lifetime of connoisseuring prepares you little for the surprises this genuine passion for presentation, uniqueness, and fine taste this restaurant possesses, yields. The menu, tenderly and symmetrically prepared, is broad despite how particular it is. The... More

We had good expectations on this restaurant and, when we arrived and they asked if we had any food that we didn't like or tolerate, we said no. I have to say that every time they described the ingredients, it looked like it was going to be something we didn't particularly like, but no! They manage to finely mix different... More

This is me and my gf's go to place when we want to go and have an amazing dinner. We always accompany our dinners with the wines they recommend and have never been disappointed. The personal attention from the waiter always feels very nice. And it's just a fun cozy place that you can come to time and again.

The chef explains the menu himself. Even shares his kitchensecrets. You can choose the surprise menu or order a la carte. The chef's wife knows about wines. Good value for your money. The tables are a bit too close for my taste. But the decor is warm and inviting.

we had Christmas dinner in Voila and with all our experience in eating outside it can be concluded that place is really the place to go. It was very well organized: you had the time to discuss and they gave you the feeling: we have the time so don't hurry. In other restaurants they look whether you are finished to... More

We had the five course surprise dinner for two. Excellent food accompanied by a fine choice of wines. They take great care of their customers on a very nice non-invasive way. The only disadvantage - as with all restaurants with open kitchens - is the smell of the cooking getting into your clothes.
