    De Mangerie: Good Chinese food

    by simonli625 Updated Jan 21, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is located on diependaalselaan. It is closed on Tuesday. The ambiance of the restaurant is good with nice table ware and good service. The to-go menu somehow has a lot more choices and cheaper than the sit down menu. There are definitely a lot more people ordering to-go food from this restaurant than sit down dinner.

    Favorite Dish: Ossenhaas lente uitjes, garnalen knooflook pep

    De Smidse: Good Service and good food

    by simonli625 Written Jul 9, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The food choice is quite international. You can have fresh wild salmon, lamb, burgers, toast, and some indonesian sate and loempia. The service is good and fast, which is kind of rare in the netherlands.

    This resturant normally don't open for dinner except thursday night. Even on thursday night, they closed at around 9 p.m.

    Favorite Dish: The lamsham is really good. They also have POFFERTJES which is a special dish in Dutch. Poffertjes is like a quarter size pancake serve with powder sugar and it is quite delicious.

    In the summer time, you can sit outside at the patio and it is quite relaxing and nice.

    Las Tapas: Busy but friendly little tapas bar

    Las Tapas
    1 more image

    Las Tapas is a very popular little place, which means it can be rather noisy and hard to get a table right away. We first had a drink at the bar and after 5 or 10 minutes we were brought to our table. The staff are very friendly and efficient, but with only two waiters running around, it may take a little to attract their attention. Once you have ordered, however, the food is served quickly and tastes excellent! We had six tapas altogether, which was more than we could eat, as well as some bread with very tasty garlic mayonaise. Especially the stuffed tomatoes and the cajun chicken were excellent! The whole place had a very cosy Mediterranean atmosphere and prices range from around EUR 4 to EUR 7 per tapas.

    This is simply the best Chinese restaurant in town: excellent food, excellent wine and excellent service. They have a great variety of delicious dishes and wines, and you're very well looked after. I can recommend it to anyone. And they have take-away service, too!

    Chiang Mai: The Best Thai Food in Town!

    by 8Bloem Written Nov 5, 2004

    This restaurant really is top-notch. Run by a Thai lady with Thai staff, you'll get authentic food. Service is great, it isn't all that expensive and everything just tastes marvellous.

    Favorite Dish: As a vegetarian I really like the Thai Gado Gado, with lots of broccoli and satay sauce. Not too hot, but you can ask the chef to make it any way you like it.

    This restaurant really is top-notch. Run by a Thai lady with Thai staff, you'll get authentic food. Service is great, it isn't all that expensive and everything just tastes marvellous. You can ask the chef to adjust hotness, so it's great for children, too.

    Favorite Dish: As a vegetarian I really like the Thai Gado Gado, with lots of broccoli and satay sauce. A friend of mine always has the beef pieces in hot sauce (don't know the name), and they're hot allright!

    Restaurant Gandhi: Great Indian food

    by Steph84 Updated Aug 11, 2010

    In a quiet street on the edge of the town centre, this little restaurant opened for business in the summer of 2009. I've been here about five or six times now and never been disappointed. Take anything on the menu - it's always delicious, no matter what you choose! Everything is freshly made by the Indian owners and rich in flavour. They have a large varied menu, also for vegetarians, ranging from not-spicy-at-all to smoke-out-of-your-ears-hot (note: the menu on their website is not quite complete - they have more!). Staff are very friendly and helpful, portions are big and prices are reasonable (generally around €25 including drinks and nan bread (personal favourite: peshwari nan! Mmm...)).

    The only minor drawback I can think of is that there is not much of an outside seating area, and with a rather unromantic view of a service station as well. Still, I don't think that should be reason to go somewhere else and miss such a wonderful meal!

    Takeaway available. Closed on Tuesdays.

    Van Zijtveld: Coffee and Tea

    Van Zijtveld
    2 more images

    You may feel slightly scared when you enter what feels like a long dark corridor, but don't be, for at the end awaits coffee and tea galore (and cakes! and lunch! and high tea!) in a very cozy setting. They have a great selection of specialty coffees and teas, and a small shop where you can buy various coffee blends (ground or beans) and teas to take home. It's slightly more expensive than your usual cup, but not much and it's well worth it.

    Open Monday-Saturday 10am-6pm, Thursdays 10am-10pm

    Café Dudok: Nice atmosphere

    Very cosy and nice café petit restaurant.
    This is the place you can find me with my Belgian newspaper and a good cup of coffee with a grappa.
    They serve several Belgian beers too.
    And on sunny days I'll sit outside on the terrace, if there's place.
    It's named after architect Dudok who made lots of buildings and houses in Hilversum.
    The most famous is our raadhuis.

    Favorite Dish: Last time I had a very nice homemade burger.

    Proeverij De Open Keuken: Delicious food

    by vpeter Updated Jun 9, 2011

    Delicious French and Seafood restaurant.
    The menu follows the seasons.
    The owners and the servants are very friendly and kind.
    In summer you can eat on a very nice terrace in/out of the sun.

    Ik ga er van uit dat ook Nederlanders deze pagina's bezoeken en, net als ik, niet altijd het het Engels even machtig zijn. Vandaar een Nedrlandstalige beschrijving toegevoegd.

    Dit is een restaurant met een overheerlijke kaart, op een prettige plek in Hilversum, een fijn terras, en ook niet onbelangrijk: heel vriendelijke en attente bediening.

    Favorite Dish: Too much to tell, but mostly I eat seafood.

    Ik ben een visliefhebber en hier hebben ze ook heerlijke visgerechten.

    King's IJscafé: No summer without ice cream!

    by Steph84 Updated Jul 21, 2010
    1 more image

    In my opinion simply the best ice cream parlour in town! Great range of delicious ice cream for EUR 1 per scoop, all of it home-made. Not too much room to sit inside, but defininitely clean and tidy and there are plenty of seats outside (which is where you'll want to sit anyway when it's ice-cream weather :-)). The traffic can be a bit busy at times, but there is a beautiful church right across the road to look at whilst enjoying your ice cream. They also offer hot and cold drinks and yummy sandwiches!

    Favorite Dish: Try the stroopwafel ice cream! Possibly the most typically Dutch ice cream :-)

    If you want you can eat indoors, but the 16 seats are limited.

    Behind the door there's a cigartettes vending machine.

    Favorite Dish: Patat + Loempia
