The restaurant is located inside the PSV football stadium. Unless you have an invite from a sponsor you will not see a game while you are having a meal there. That said, the restaurant is very nice. A cozy atmosphere and great food. Ther service was excellent and very attentive.

Last Saturday we had the 6-course surprise menu (@85 euro pp) at restaurant Avant-Garde in the PSV-stadium, with accompanying wines. Everything was as it should be in a high end restaurant like this. The most important part is the food of course, and that was delicious. It was well prepared, sometimes a little experimental but not too much, the right quantities, good combinations with the wine, excellent. Also the service was of high quality.
On the other hand: we don't know if we will be going back any time soon. This has to do with the other Michelin star restaurant in town, the Karpendonkse Hoeve. I like the food there better (though my wife doesn't), the surroundings are better (the luscious green outside the Karpendonkse Hoeve is more attractive than an empty football stadium) and it also is a bit cheaper.

Afgelopen zaterdag aten we het zesgangen verrassingsmenu bij Avant-Garde, met bijpassend wijnmenu. Alles klopte en paste, dus hulde voor het team van Johan van Groeninge. Het belangrijkste is natuurlijk het eten, en dat was heerlijk. Het was goed bereid, soms een tikje experimenteel maar niet té, de hoeveelheden waren goed, en de wijnen waren goed gekozen bij het eten, prima. Ook de service was uitstekend, gastvrij en flexibel. Om minpunten te kunnen melden zouden we spijkers op laag water moeten gaan zoeken.

Daarentegen: of we snel nog eens terug gaan, weten we niet. Dat heeft te maken met dat andere restaurant met een Michelinster in Eindhoven, de Karpendonkse hoeve. Ik vind het eten daar net iets lekkerder (maar mijn vrouw niet), de omgeving is mooier (we kijken liever naar het water en de gansjes bij de Karpendonkse Plas dan naar het lege psv-stadion) en de Karpendonkse Hoeve is ook nog een tikje goedkoper.

Me and my family have enyojed this restaurant many times and have always been more then satisfied by the service and the food. On the downside, during matches de pricing goes up a lot and without a match the location is not very inviting (as you are looking at a empty football stadium). The interieur is very modern (which is to my liking). Food is a combination of the frence cuisine and modern techniques.

Good food, but the ambiance is not that great, unless you like a soccer stadium as a location.
