It has been five months since my last visit sadly. This restaurant never fails to please with great quality food, portions to large to finish and a welcome that makes you feel like one of the family. I would recommend the mustard soup as a starter - it's my favourite, but everything on the menu is great. Go, enjoy and... More

Back again to a favourite restaurant with friends. Desiree was her usual cheerful self and was very attentive. Food was good if a little slow, but worth the wait. We'll be back again in the autumn.

Lovely little restaurant tucked away in the back lanes of Arnhem. Had a lovely meal with great service. The young lady who served us took the time to explain the dishes on the menu. The food was excellent.

Charming staff. Exquisitely prepared food. The room is very medieval. There is an open fire. It is in the nice pedestrian part of the central town. What more could one desire?

On a recent trip to Arnhem, our group of four enjoyed two splendid meals at the restaurant. Located in an alley in Arnhem teeming with restaurants, De Smidse stood out for the excellent food and service. The meals were cooked to perfection. Especially enjoyed the Cerises Flambé (Flambéed cherries) with ice cream and whipped cream was among our favorite desserts.... More
