For many years I had wanted to try this place because of all the raving reviews. It was not quite what I had expected. It started badly when my daughter requested a slight change to the composition of one of the menus. "Not possible". That is an unacceptable answer in my opinion, but I decided to ignore the waiter's remark... More

The dishes were attractively light, well presented, imaginative and of high quality. The accompanying wines were well chosen from around the world.The restaurant rose to the challenge of some special requests. The general ambiance is relaxing and the whole meal flowed in an attractive atmosphere with the novelty of a view of the Philips Stadium. It is probably best to... More

Slick service. Great place for entertaining potential clients. They'll be impressed. Good idea to go for the "wine arrangement" along with a "surprise menu" meal. Not only saves a lot of money and time, but also takes away the headache of trying to match bottles to courses.

This restaurant probably does have the best food in Eindhoven based on sheer quality. It's more modern and innovative than the Karpendonkse Hoeve, the city's other Michelin-starred place and its only real rival, which sticks more to classic French (i.e. too-rich sauces). This is lighter and more elegant. I even think the atmosphere in the dining room is lovely and... More

The food and the service was incredible. I invited my husband to celebrate his 40th birthday and we enjoyed a fantastic experience.

I have visited the Avant-Garde during the DiningCity Restaurant week to take my mother for a lunch in a Michelin-star restaurant where she never was before. In a short statement, this restaurant really deserve its star - even more than the current one.

The restaurant is located inside the PSV football stadium. Unless you have an invite from a sponsor you will not see a game while you are having a meal there. That said, the restaurant is very nice. A cozy atmosphere and great food. Ther service was excellent and very attentive.

(NL versie onderaan) Last Saturday we had the 6-course surprise menu (@85 euro pp) at restaurant Avant-Garde in the PSV-stadium, with accompanying wines. Everything was as it should be in a high end restaurant like this. The most important part is the food of course, and that was delicious. It was well prepared, sometimes a little experimental but not too... More

Me and my family have enyojed this restaurant many times and have always been more then satisfied by the service and the food. On the downside, during matches de pricing goes up a lot and without a match the location is not very inviting (as you are looking at a empty football stadium). The interieur is very modern (which is... More

Good food, but the ambiance is not that great, unless you like a soccer stadium as a location.
