Lovely pre dinner

The appetizer they serve here is worth the mention! Not only is the place really cosy, the appetizer are several mini dishes that you can share with each other. Staff is friendly and prices are normal.

We had lunch at De Markt on a Friday. It was quite busy at the time, but the food looked good. After approx. 15-20 minutes we ordered our food. As indicated earlier, it was busy. We ordered two soups, two sandwiches, a coffee and fresh juice. The soups arrived after approx. 15 minutes (ie: 35 mins after sitting down). The... More

Semi-modern venue within an allways crowded area between the Market and the Old Channels. The menu has enough to choose from and the food is average/above average but not that sophisticated.

We went to this restaurant for dinner on Thursday night, place looked quite busy but we immediately got a table next to the window with the view to the street which I really liked. The restaurant is nicely decorated, all staff members were really nice and friendly. Food was good and tasty, also well presented. As a dessert I took... More

De Markt is good but not great. Pizza are too oiled and too greasy. The place is nice but that is not enough... Sadly. Prices are ok

Excellent Italian dining. Honestly everything we had here was great and it was reasonably priced. I got the mushroom and spinach lasagna, my husband had salmon both dishes were very tasty. We had several glasses of wine and cheesecake for dessert. We will return on our next visit to the country.

We were advised against eating down on the canal-side and instead directed to Drieharingstraat where there are several restaurants. We chose De Markt as it was popular yet not crowded and the menu looked good. There was outside dining and plenty of tables inside. The wooden floors do not make for a quiet time but it was not too noisy.... More

Had to find somewhere close to Utrecht Central Station for a business lunch appointment. De Markt did the job, nothing special. Service was fine and food about average for a Dutch cafe. Could do without the hassle of walking through a shopping centre to get out of the train station.

They do good food, and you might have to wait a few minutes longer than average. I used the time wisely to enjoy a beer or two...as you do. They are also very good with young children, and are very family friendly.Drieharingstraat, when you find it, is 'the place to be' for quality, service and value.
