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.

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.

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.

You can drink here almost any beer you hear about. And not only beer. If I will have time enough I will try a "Bruin Biermenu"... This consist in three kinds of brown beer with more than 7% alcohol... It sounds tempting isn't it? :)
Favorite Dish: I prefere blondes... Leffe Blondes :)
Of course you shouldn't understand that I have tried them all (brunes and blondes) in few days only.. hihihi!)

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.

The food was well done, well served, the waiter was very nice looking(!), the wine was good and... the decorations are great. The french music has been the best choice.
You will never regret a dinner on that restaurant, especially a romantic one :)
Favorite Dish: Mixed grill (chicken breast, pork chops, beef and lamb) combined with some baked vegetables, two separated bowls with potatoes and one with salad.
A glass with red wine was the best option to complete that dish.

I have been invited to eat here once and I do not regret that I have accepted the invitation. The waitress is the owner of the restaurant and she is trying to do her best to make you happy.
The place is having no more than 8 tables and the photos and menu placed on the walls are making a nice ambience.
Favorite Dish: Tournedos € 16,75
(200 gram biefstuk v/d haas - Specialiteit van het huis!)
I was following the reccomendation and we have asked for onion soup and tournedo(beef). The dish has been completed by a beer and desert and it costs about 60 euro for two persons.

If this simple establishment could talk what a tale it could tell!
A place providing hospitality to visitors has stood on this spot since 1882. In those days Schoonoord was an hotel that did well when Oosterbeek became popular with artists and a fashionable destination for well-off summer vistors.
WW2 and the Battle of Arnhem was to change all that. Its proximity to the Hartenstein Hotel which had become the Headquarters of the Allied British and Polish forces as the airborne invasion began.
There were very heavy casualties and an emergency field hospital was required.
The 1st British Airborne Division took Schoonoord over in September 1944 as the battle raged all around and parachutists fell to earth and more than 500 wounded men received treatment here.
Schoonoord was also a casualty and very badly damaged but after the war was rebuilt and opened its doors once more as a cafe restaurant . It soon became known to returning veterans as the Airborne Pub No.1 and continues to particpate in the many local acts of remembrance.
We were latecomers for lunch after our visit to the Museum - almost next door - so ordered simple salads. Whilst these were prepared we had time to look around and see the large collection of pre and post war memorabilia - before and after photographs, most movingly some taken at the height of the conflict and signed letters from some of the officers and men who had been here then.
Our salads were exactly as we wanted and went down very well with some excellent bread and a glass of beer.
But it is for the overall experience of being in a place that for a short time played so important a part in history that I look back on my lunch at the Schoonoord cafe.

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.
