Le Grand Royal: You can try it without any doubt
This is a good restaurant with a nice atmosphere and a good food. Do not hesitate to go inside.
The service was good but the Menu was only written in Dutch. They have explained me that soon the English version will be available. You may check if they keep promises:)
The interior needs some restoration works...
Favorite Dish: Something with lamb, salad, potatoes and a glass of red wine... All costs me a bit less than 17 euros.
Bon Giorno: Great ice
This is an ice salon run by my uncle Martin Schröder. He makes the Italian ice himself, getting fresh milk every day and using biological ingredients. It's the best ice I've ever tasted. He makes 40 different flavours, some very experimental like the Red Bull flavour.
Favorite Dish: I loved all of them. Not that I've tasted them all, but the ones I did tast were great!

De Derde van Mahler
Cafe-restaurant De derde van Mahler ('Mahler's 3rd")
Our visit coincided with the annual banquet of an Arnhem carnival Society. It's also a BookCrossing zone (http://www.bookcrossing.com), sometimes visited by Arnhem's most productive bookcrosser "FransG". So there's always something exciting going on!
Sakura: For sushi and tepanyaki you go to:
This - exclusive and thus quite expensive restaurant - is my favourit in Arnhem. Sakura (cherryblossom) might not be an original name, but it was one of the first Japanese restaurants within The Netherlands. Since then I am enjoying tepanyaki and also a few sushi-treats there on occasional basis.
"Pauwstraat" (Peacock street): Collection of fine and stylish restaurants
Connecting the Korenmarkt with the Jans (shopping) street is a short road called "Pauwstraat" (Peacock street). On both sides of this street one can find fine restaurants with all their own cosy atmosphere. There's for example "Pst Amigo" (Mexican), "Grand Royal" (Bourgondian) and as well "La Habana" (Cuban / Caribic). The street has gotten lately a very green character when the city decided to plant trees here. In summer terraces are placed in the street, turning it into a buzzing nightlife spot. In shrill contrast to the good restaurants stands the "Febo", which can easily be considered the worst snack counter chain of The Netherlands.
"De Palatijn": High tea in the "Sonsbeek"-park
Nothing is more tasty then a high tea after a wonderful walk. The Sonsbeek park is the most beautiful place to walk in nature and offers some of the most spectacular views over Arnhem. Waterfalls, long lanes with huge trees, laying greens and mighty forest as well as a cultivated art garden. The "Palatijn" is a cosy teahouse in the midst of these settings. A great place for a afternoon tea with scones, sandwiches or - for the lover - pies and sweets.
La Rusticana: Best Italian Restaurant in town with a secret
In the "Bakkerstraat" (Bakers street) one can find the best Italian restaurant in Arnhem. La Rusticana serves a wide variety of Italian "cuisine" variating from a list of Pizza's to the finest Carpaccio and Pasta's. The restuarant offers several cosy rooms with all their own style. The secret can be enjoyed in summertime, when the backgarden is open and one can dine under wineleaves and large trees. As this garden is in the centre of town, it is a strange awareness being in such green hidden place.
The Snackbar: Do like the Dutch: snack, snack, snack
Snackbars, you will find them everywhere. In the citycentre on several streetcorners and in the suburbs always at local shoppingcentres. Yes, it's fastfood and unhealthy, but ... well, it's also easy (fast) and (according to me) deliscious.
Favorite Dish: Snacks, with on top the French Fries, though there actualy is nothing French about them. Legend goes that somewhere in the Southern Lowlands (now Flandres) in the medieval battles a sack of potatoes fell into a kettle of hot oil (to throw on the attacking forces that tried to climb the citywalls). As food during sieges was scarce and valuable, one did everything to get the potatoes out again, which finally succeeded. Fried potatoes were invented!
Furthermore there is an amazing variety of fried snacks in The Netherlands. Kroket, frikandel, nasi/bamischijf, lihanboutje, berehap, bitterbal, kipcorn etc. etc. If you're here and go hungry, stop and try them.
In the Netherlands you have to eat Pancakes!
Best pancake-restaurant, more typical Dutch I cannot imagine, is in Arnhem North at the 'Koningsweg'.
Another good one, 'De Steenen Camer' is at the Drielsedijk in Arnhem South. However, there are many more in and around the town.
Favorite Dish: Pancake with ham and ... of course ... Dutch cheese (preferably Old Amsterdam or Young Maaslander).
The Pyramid: Friendly Folks, Good Food
Middle Eastern Food (Egyptian owners/operators), with picto-menu items. Large servings, friendly service folks. Limited parking. Don't park on the street near the front entrance, you WILL be towed.
Favorite Dish: All the food was great. Try a combo plate.
Asia, takeaway-afhaalcentrum, Indonesian Toko, Molenstraat, Ede Centre
It's a kind of take-away place, so you can chose from many Indonesian food and eat it at home or in the restaurant
Favorite Dish: All you can choose from in the vitrine
Restaurant CC: A good choice for a cofee...
The position on the river side is making the place priceless for a short rest, a cofee and a glass of water.
One of the best places for human safari in the city.
Favorite Dish: Cofee of course :)
Brasserie De Boerderij: Take a beer in Sonsbeek
I have just drunk a beer and a cofee there but the position and the service is exactly what you need after a visit in the park.
La Cubanita: Tapas y Mas
La Cubanita is a Spanish style restaurant with tapas and more.
Special deal Monday through Thursday unlimited Tapas.
Favorite Dish: Tapas.
