Food looked better than it tasted

Had a good lunch here withy family. My wife and I had one of the sharing platters. It looked amazing. I mean really amazing. But once we got stuck in we were a little disappointed. Quite a few things were bland. The 'hot' meatballs weren't hot. Our girls did better with a pizza and pasta... read more

I have eaten here twice with my husband. When you walk into the restaurant, it smells wonderful! We loved the mozzarella pizza with pesto so much that we had to come back for more. On our second trip, we sat near the kitchen and saw the beautiful dishes coming out of the kitchen. Next time I will try something else.... More

This place is always busy and I really have no idea why. Food is not of a good standard, the menu is pretty basic and i find it overpriced. Service is not great either.

The menu is very unispiring, it is a "chic" Italian, but there are much better versions of it in Utrecht. Their vegetarian selections were all dull standard fare (cheese and mushrooms with everything). The service was pretty decent for the Netherlands. The room and decor was nice to look at but I have never been anywhere to eat that is... More

We walked in here without reservations on a Saturday night. The place was packed, but the estimated waiting time only 30 minutes or less, so we decided to wait at the bar. After 20 minutes or so we were guided to our table, which was perfectly located with view on the open kitchen. Despite the amount of people, the service... More

We've been to De Markt several times now because it has a charming atmosphere and friendly staff. Set in Drieherringstraat which is a lane way filled with restaurants, De Markt has good standard fare. The beef bouillon is very good and the warm bread and spice olive oil delicious. As for other menu selections - the lasagne is ok but... More

Had a nice three course meal on a midweek evening. Beetroot risotto was absolutely fantastic, so was the main. Service was a bit slow but the place was packed so not a surprise.

After being sent away from several other restaurants because their kitchen was 'closed' long before the end of advertised opening hours, it was a breath of fresh air to come to De Markt where this wasn't a problem at all and the service was very attentive and friendly. The restaurant is situated right in the historic centre, with a lovely... More

Very poor and unauthentic Italian food, each course we ordered was a disappointment in some way. Example: we ordered spaghetti with shrimp and it came with Parmigiano already sprinkled everywhere - cheese on seafood pasta!? If you want good atmosphere for a drink, this place could work: it's got a nice vibe, a lot of energy, and trendy decor. Just... More

the only thing that save this restaurant is the design, but if you look for food it's better going somewhere. They should be an Italian restaurant but I challenge you to find any place in Italy that serve that mix of food!! They had pizza with Ossobuco (veal shank with the marrow)..Come on!!! What kind of mix is this!!! However... More
