Classic place in Groningen

I've been coming here since the early 90s (when it was still a 100% vegetarian place) and I will probably keep coming back. It used to be my standard restaurant during the Eurosonic festival in January, so for 10+ years I ate here at least once per year. I can truly say that I've never been... read more

I experienced a great fish of the week - tuna, served with green beans and special sauce. What was special about this simple dish? Simply everything... Chef knows how to prepare tuna in right way and how to leave on the dish his signature. Size of the portion is descent, so it is really difficult to leave this place unsatisfied.... More

I've eaten at the Brussels Lof twice now - in September 2014 and January 2015. Both times I chose the 'surprise' menu (3 courses): The starters were a dream (!), the intermediate courses excellent, and the main courses special treats. Depending on where you sit you can see the kitchen and how the food is being prepared. During short breaks... More

We loved the variety of choice in the menu, offering traditional Dutch dishes, fish, fondue and vegetarian courses; too many choices for one visit. The atmosphere was friendly, the food was cooked to perfection and the service was professional. We will return for more!

I hadn't been back to Brussels Lof for 5 years. I'm glad to report that if anything the cooking has got even better. Although I like fish I choose one of the four vegetarian main courses, roast vegatbles with rice rissoles and a cummin sauce. Absolutely fantastic. Amongst the best vegetarian food I have eaten. The restaurant was funny booked... More

Tried to go here in July but they were on holiday. Ideal. Specialising in sea food and vegetarian. Lucky to get a table on Saturday last. Fantastic food. Very good service (they were tired). Think very reasonable prices. Seafood starter then mussels. Excellent. Vegetable stuff delicious (I'm the seafood one). If you're in groningen you must go here. Next time... More

Great for seafood lovers. I had excellent mussels and my partner was very happy with the fruit de mer rissoto. Attentive service, very good desserts and a good location. PS the "lof" is a way of saying witlof - meaning the emphasis is on the vegetarian.

I've eaten a couple of times here, both occasions have been fantastic. They do a great fish stew dish which tasted fantastic and full of shellfish too. The main courses are on the more expensive side but I think worth the money. The restaurant is small and intimate, you can see the head chef busy cooking in the small kitchen... More
