“Fantastic fod but you probably won't want to end up with the bill.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

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.

“The best food in Eindhoven for sheer quality, if not value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

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 stylish, and not at all weird for being in a football stadium as some other reviewers have suggested. But like all other Michelin places, you are paying as much for the ambiance and the over-attentive service as much as for the food, so if like me that's what you really care about, it is heavenly and beautifully presented, but does not represent the best value for money. It loses a star from me on that basis.

“My best dining in Eindhoven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

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.

“Great food, strange location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

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.
