Beware of the entree step which is a bit steep, but once you are in, you are in for some seriously good food. While in Venlo, try the local specialties, both on beer and food: the Venloos Zoorvleis- a beef stew with vinegar, spices and...onions. In season they have venison and Rabbit , both excellent. there are vegetarian options too...I wouldn't miss this one.More

It's a good Eetcafe, so not haute cuisine more of a bar/restaurant that is so typical of the Netherlands. Food was fine, nothing particularly spectacular but they only had one person serving so it was a little slow. Some range of regional foods, such as...Zuurvlees (beef stew) and Mustard Soup. Reasonably priced and had a good guest beer when we visited (it was from the island ofTexel).More

Hemingway proves a pleasant experience with each visit. The staff is wonderfully friendly and accommodating with suggestions based upon your personal needs. The atmosphere and ambiance combine for a unique experience that feels like a large family gathering. Meals, beverages and desserts alike are lovingly...prepared and proudly presented.More

Venlo has a lot of great restaurants but this one has the best salmon salad! There is working a very kind couple willing to help in choices. Nice desserts like an apple pie or tart, or home made ice cream with cinnamon :) Recommended to...make a reservation.More

The outside is not particularly impressive, but the inside is. This café is what I would consider a very good example of a typical Dutch Brown Café. the inside is very inviting and comfortable, and you can sit and drink coffee and read the paper...if you want and also get good food. We were in Venlo only for a few hours, and wanted to check out the main shopping street and got hungry in the late afternoon. One of the merchants on the main shopping street, for pedestrians only, pointed us towards the Hemingway. It was a very good recommendation. Although we did not eat an entire meal, we did enjoy tea and coffee, and then a great split pea soup and toasted cheese sandwich (Tosti). If you want immediate food service, better go to McDonalds and stand in line, but at Hemingway you have atmosphere, and good food, and comfortable surroundings. We definitely will go back the next time we are in Venlo.More

When it is full and you are foreigner, you can expect to be yelled at. you must be very polite and cautious there, better not speak German. The menu is in Dutch language only. If they can they cheat you, they do it. This is...my experience. The quality of the food is below average.More

Been there first in the nineties when I studied in Venlo. Just aside the shopping streets in the heart of the city, it almost feels like an insider tip. Greatest beers at draft. Perfect meals. Happy people. Nice staff. But nothing beats atmosphere. It's just...present.More

The restaurant is pleasantly decorated and has an unpretentious, relaxing vibe. The staff were cheery and quickly took our orders. They offer a couple of dishes without meat or fish, a seeming rarity in Venlo. Our two dishes arrived 45 minutes later. Although it was...a Saturday lunchtime the place was only about 20% full, some just taking coffee. Our portions were huge and piping hot, but were not especially memorable.More

We visited Hemingway, famished after a long day's biking, and ordered a salad to share as a starter and two main meals. The food was pretty classic, but the size of the portions was something else entirely! Just what we were after on that night....The only thing that would have improved the experience would have been a warning about the additional salads that turned up after our starter salad, apparently a freebie, but prior knowledge would have saved us just over 12 euro...More

When I am in Venlo, I typically spend at least one night dining at Hemingway. The food is not gourmet, but good and it, as well as the wine and beer are reasonably priced. Better than that, the atmosphere is very relaxed. When I am...traveling alone, this is a great spot for reading my book, sipping a drink and feeling comfortable. In the summer, they have a small patio across from the main entrance, which is nice. I would recommend for a casual drink or dinner.More
