Trips ‘n Travels: Holland – Eating and drinking in Groningen & Groningen by night


Groningen is a city which is very much alive by day, and even more so at night when all lights are lit! In today’s travelpost I give you a photographic impression of Holland’s most northern town by night. But first I tell you where we had lunch and diner… Read on I’d say!

Places to eat and drink



Our first lunchstop was at Prönk, a fabulous brasserie/café where one can have breakfast/lunch/diner/high tea, have a coffee whilst reading a newspaper, sit on the outdoor terrace with a glass of bubbles or meet up with friends to have some beers. It was a first encounter with the city and we liked it a lot 🙂

The service is very friendly and down to earth as in many Dutch places. My husband had a burger, I had a wrap. The food was good, but we especially liked the overall atmosphere in this place!

The building is also very peculiar. It is one of the first stone buildings of the city, dating from the 13th century. There are several rooms where you can sit and the walled outdoor terrace is so cosy. Definitely to be recommended when in Groningen!


Feliz Fine Food


A couple of days before going to Groningen, I browsed the web to look for a restaurant deal in Groningen. I found two fabulous deals on Groupon, so I booked them both as we would spend two evenings in the city.

The first evening we had diner at Feliz Fine Food. This is a lovely and lively restaurant in the city centre. The menu of this restaurant is all about diversity and surprising combinations. We enjoyed a 4 course meal for 2 for only 40 EUR (not including our drinks) due to a Groupon voucher and it really was worth every cent!




Dinnercafé Soestdijk

As we had a scrumptuous breakfast at our hotel on the second day, we didn’t feel hungry at all until 4 pm… a bit late to have lunch. We didn’t feel like anything sweet, so we stopped at a café (Dinnercafé Soestdijk) ordering some cheese, bread and tapenade with a cold beer. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the outdoor terrace watching the world go by for a bit.




Louis XV


For the second evening I had bought a Groupon voucher from the restaurant Louis XV, also in the city centre. What we were offered for our 50 EUR deal (50 EUR for a 4 course dinner for 2, not including drinks) was too good to be true!! Exellent service, a very stylish setting and fabulous French cuisine is what I remember from our evening at Louis XV. Definitely to be recommended!

I like walking around a city at night. It always looks so different than during daytime, doesn’t it?!

I hope you enjoyed these three posts of Groningen and I hope I could convince you to visit this city when in the neighbourhood!

Love, Kathleen
