OK, Groningen, like many student towns, isn't blessed with that many great places to eat (nor is Oxford!)... but we went here because a) it's close to my son's flat b) we didn't have much time and c) it is pretty well recommended... So... The big pluses (and they are the main things) are that the owner is a really nice guy - he pays attention to his customers, and is happy to make you feel really welcome... and his food, if simple, is very well prepared and very tasty... so that's all good - but it was a bit (a lot) annoying to have to charge off to the main square to find some cash at the ABN machine cos' he hasn't got a pin-machine!!! OK, I know times are tough, but get real - everyone EVERYONE who is running a business in NL has a pin-machine! I've lived here for 4 years and accept that not every place likes credit cards, but bank card - always!!!! So, if you can sort this out, you will be a really good place for a meal - but until you do, no tips - I don't expect to have to do a 400m round trip to pay for dinner!!!!

The restaurant is indeed conviniently located, a stone throw away from the Grote Markt and Martini Toren. There are about 5-6 items per course on the menu, i.e. not overloaded. Although one thing I wanted was not avalable that day, the other food was indeed very good. The owner is a very friendly host whose been very charming with adults and kids alike... Prices are reasoanable, 20-25 euros per person excluding alcohol

Unexpected place: this restaurant is in the Gelkingestraat, very close to the central square, but not a street where you expect to find many restaurants.
The hospitality is top level, and the food is abundant and everything is fresh and very tasty.
The wines are a bit expensive, and the bill tends to be above average, but absolutely in relation to what you get. Of course, given everything is freshly prepared, you should not go there when you are in a hurry.
Recommended!

We were wondering about to find a fine restaurant at late night in Groningen, Netherlands, finally found a turkish cuisine, with reasonable prices ( approx 20 euro for each person ). the staff were very kind & friendly. Food was very delicious with many side dishes which they brought to us without any order. Here is the address & phone number: Gelkingestr.24, 9711 NC Groningen, Tel: 050-3111230,
