I ate a very strange beef burger there (served with bread and vegetables on a plate), and it was fantastic. And they serve good belgian beers.

Although you do not visit "De effenaar" for a concert, you can still go to the bar. It is in the town center of Eindhoven, close to the central train station. The bar is nicely decorated (modern style). Service is good.

All dishes all have a little twist to what you might expect, but not that extremely strange in taste. I'm a regular visitor because of the changing menu and... More
