We had the proefmenu accompanied by the wine arrangement. All the dishes were very tasty and well paired with the wines. Service was excellent, cozy atmosphere. Thank you ZoXander, we'll be back!

The combination makes it a really nice restaurant to visit. Slap bang in the centre of Zwolle, in the basement of an historic old building, the ambience is cozy and warm. The concept of the menu is a kind of oversize tapas system, where you...More

A sort of tapas restaurant with small or large dishes from different regions across the globe. Very good food, friendly staff. Try the 10-course "Proeverij" - a good choice.

We were here with family celebrating an anniversary. We all chose the tasting menu and were not disappointed. The food was excellent, small portions but due to their number it was definitely enough. Get some coffee or tea after the meal, they will bring some...More

We were lucky to have a reservation on a warm summerevening, when dinner was served at the terrace. The terrace, in front of the beautiful old building that houses the restaurant in the basement, right in the city center, is pleasant and spacious. Distance between...More

I am used to the eating out culture you see in London, Berlin and Moscow and it has been very difficult to find that in this area. Maybe as it is not so common in this country as in many other European countries the price...More

Xander's bazaar is a bit awkard/different in Zwolle in the sense that its concept is entirely based on small dishes coming from all countries around the Mediterranean sea (ranging from Marocco to Spain while going through Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Greece, etc). The menu changes I...More

It's my wife's favourite restaurant and it's within walking distance (situated in the centre of Zwolle). The food is very good and changes every few weeks. Unlike other restaurants there is not starter, mains and dessert. You can choose to have a meal comprised of...More

I hesitated a lot before posting this review, as this restaurant is not on the trip advisor's list but I think it deserves more attention. Excellent value for money (if you make the right choice, depending on your taste), good wines and nice place (sometimes a bit noisy in the week-end). Place to discover in Zwolle. Good service. Nice terrasse if the weather is OK.
