The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, and their starter plate to share is great! But after that, things went downwards. We waited for two hours for the main course (the waitress noticed as well and asked the kitchen several times what was going on). Once we finally got our dinner, one of us only had about two bites of spaghetti... More

We have been here many times, we always end up at de markt when we don't feel inspired to try something new. They have a stable menu from which everyone is able to choose and unlike many Dutch restaurants are not focusing so much on bread-based cuisine.

I really recommended this restaurant, I enjoyed each course immensely and despite the size of the restaurant, the service was excellent. I had a risotto special and every bite was an experience. The atmosphere is just right for a special dinner.

Situated in an alley between the station and the canal, this is a nice, good sized restaurant serving high quality, fresh food. The sharing plate from the deli counter in particular is very good, and service and drinks also excellent.

We were a bit hesitant to go to De Markt given some of the reviews, but we're glad we did. The four of us were in the mood for Italian and the menu looked interesting. From the start, the staff was friendly and attentive. We ate inside at a table that opened out to their patio on a quaint alley.... More

Location is cute, but if busy do not go. Very loud, service not existing. I was invited by a friend, her choice. My first time. About 5 tables occupied so not busy. We entered and were seated next to another couple, while the place was basically empty. No problem we still speak 3 languages others cannot follow. My friend is... More

Restaurant "de markt" is always busy as they never fail to deliver. Good food, good service. Nothing too exciting or experimental but that is not the point of going here.

This restaurant looks great and the staff were fast and quick to help us get a table and get a highchair. When we looked at the menu, it seemed like Italian food was on offer but it wasn't authentic. The lasagne included chicken, chorizo and peppers which is more Spanish. The duck was lovely but the portions were tiny. We... More

We went there after a long haul flight and just needed a quick bite. Turned out we were treated to good wine, good pizzas with interesting and unique toppings including crab and fennel and a very nice atmosphere. Will be back to try the tapas platters which look amazing!

We stopped for a late lunch and sat outside, a pleasant place to watch the world go by. English menu with friendly efficient service. Lovely salads. Bottle of tap water provided straight away, unlike some other Dutch restaurants we have been to. Highly recommended.
