Another good dinner at Smalle Haven

Returned with a large group, we had a fixed menu we negotiated during the booking. Excellent the appetizers ( salmon tartare, coppa ham, Swordfish carpaccio , fish croket ), and very good main dishes: sole, seabass and venison ( deer ). We finished with a cheescake ( a bit blan in taste to be... read more

To my great regret, I have been here 3 or 4 times and each time they have managed to disappoint me. I like the idea of sitting on furniture you can also buy, but the furniture typically sits awful. The food is just bad, service even worse. Usually it's packed with hipsters or lost tourists.

This is a very original combination of a furniture shop and a restaurant (yes, you can buy all the furniture!). There is no menu, you discuss with the owner what you want and what he can serve, and then he will make something for you. We went there with a large group and got a huge selection of meat, fish,...

We had dinner at Smalle Haven with a party from work. There were hardly any other guests. Nonetheless we needed to wait for our main course for more than an hour while we had chosen different platters to share. The food was okayish. Would not return.

We visited this place with friends, and had a great night. No menu, you chose from ingredients in the display. Actually we let the chef put together a selection of fish, meat and vegetables for our table of four - and we were not disappointed. Decor is eclectic. Service good and friendly. We would go again, but for a night... More

In this restaurant there is no menu chart. You just look in the counter at the fresh food displayed there and make your choice. The restaurants furniture is from the seventies which makes everybody feel happy and young.

One of the best restaurant of Eindhoven in my personal opinion, The place is cosy and the food is of very good quality. The menu offers only a pair of variations every day, which you can order diectly to the chef. The service is relaxed (but if you go out for dinner I guess you shouldn't be in a hurry!)... More

We had a wonderful meal at this trendy restaurant. The food was delicious...there were five of us and we were given a selection of food which was tasty & well presented. The service was slow but this is the Netherlands so it was no worse than anywhere else! The waiter had a sardonic style, so I can see why someone... More

Rude staff with pretentious small amount of food: these you can expect for sure. When going to a designer restaurant I expected the food will be pricey, what I did not expect is very rude behavior and horrible cooking. Our evening was just ruined. While serving drinks, the waiter says: oh you really picked the farthest place to sit, didn't... More

One of the very good restaurants in Eindhoven To order our dishes , we were invited to walk to the kitchen, where the cook presented the different ingredients and choices. We all enjoyed our dishes, service was at the right pace, good advise for the wine. Very good value for money.
