“Eclectic place, good food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We discovered this restaurant during the Dutch Design Week festival back in 2011. The restaurant is inside the Piet Hein Eek furniture factory, where other artists and designers have their workshops. True to this, the restaurant has a very industrial style, with eclectic furniture (some from Piet Hein eek, some from varied sources). The food has a focus on local, seasonal produce, organic when possible, prepared in an open kitchen. They have very nice lunch options including soups, sandwiches and cheese/charcuterie planks, and a full menu for dinner. It's quite a walk from downtown, near the Strijp-S complex, but some buses may bring you close. A must visit during DDW.

“Everything about this place is in tune”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Piet Hein Eek is one of the most inspiring restaurants I can think of. Completely in tune with the design work by the owner/artist, the restaurants is beautifully located in an old factory - high ceilings, enormous windows and lots of light. Of course the furniture melts in the total experience without any trouble. Extremely friendly and competent staff (two young women) served delicious food. Home made bread, excellent and tasty indonesian peanut soup, followed by an inventive ricotta veggie dish - that was a bit on the greasy side. Including 2 beers and a coffee, all in all for a modest 31€, absolutely fair. I was so happy and satisfied that I actually left 9€ tip, possibly over the top, but not to me after a excellent meal.

“Piet Hein Eek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This restaurant is great.
I went here for lunch and they were out of their daily soup and instead got an Indonesian curry soup. It was delicious and served with a crunchy papadum.

I also tried their three-course menu for dinner and it was a great deal for 27.50Euro. All of the food was delicious and their service is great. The staff was polite and cheerful.

Would definitely recommend this place!

“good honest food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

For a veggie like me it's nice to have more choice than usual . The menu is simple, but always with a little surprising twist. I can never resist the chocolates from van Bragt, especially the ones with chilly peppers and salt!
The atmosphere is industrial and trendy. The staff is friendly, and if you visit the place during daytime, you can visit the PietHeinEek shop in the building next door.
