“Industrial heritage with very nice food”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Definitely not my first visit to Usine and for sure not my last... I've been visiting Usine when I lived in Eindhoven and now on every one of my visits to the Netherlands. Still love to come here.
The food is quite good, love their calamares, sashimi, seafood (fresh and grilled) and have never been disappointed by other dishes. Tried their breakfast a couple of times when staying in the Art Hotel next door and liked it a lot. The atmosphere in the restaurant is trendy and industrial, and excellent to catch up with friends. Along the window there are smaller tables if you are visiting as a couple, but you will never feel lost in this former lightbulb factory of Philips. There is usually a big crowd, even on an average Wednesday. There is one thing about this place that has not changed over the years, and that is the service. With some positive exceptions service has never been very good/helpful/attentive at Usine. This may have to do with the huge size of the restaurant. Still worth going though!

“Coffee, Cake and Kitch”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

De taart van m'n tante. A original 'konditorei' in the Ferdinand Bolstraat in Amsterdam, near the Albert Cuyp street market and the musea. We loved the 'flea market décor'. Coffee was OK, the cakes were average but the choice was dissappointing. Not worth a special visit for the kitchen, but surely for the kitch interior.

“versatile, relaxed brasserie with industrial heritage”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

this place is central to Eindhoven and its history, and provides a great venue for a relaxing drink, brunch or dinner with friends or family. the food is decent, but not taking the spotlight; many comments on the slow service are probably justified, but have the advantage that there is plenty of time to talk to your company. wonder around in the restaurant/hall and little shop; great for many occasions. there is a seperate room for about 15 people as well.

“Slower than slow”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is a great building in a very central location . I do chilled - but the service here is beyond laid back , it's horizontal . Coffee was above average , but the incredibly slow service meant that we didn't dare to consider the eats menu .

“Take in the industrial era of times gone by - flown by even...”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

This is a real favorite of ours and we go frequently. The atmosphere is great, the service is relaxed and nice. Try the calamares and it'll keep you coming back.
