Having stopped here for a beer in the afternoon we decided to go for dinner despite the menu being slightly restricted due to the absence of the chef. We needn't have worried because the food was excellent. If you haven't tried mustard soup before don't...miss it. Followed by the most tender piece of pork and a smoked salmon salad. Add to this the most pleasant and helpful staff , great stuff and well worth a visit.More

We had dinner in 'Proeflokaal De Gaper', organised by one of our (vegan) friends. When you enter the pub, you would not expect such a fine restaurant after taking the stairs to the next level. The menu is limited, but what is on it is...all good. We chose to have the surprise menu and we were not disappointed! Very tasty, nicely made up and good portions. As I mentioned, one of us eats vegan, and they made a big effort to create a tasty and varied dish for her. The staff is friendly and the chef made his round to ask for comments. Highly recommended for a nice evening dinner!!More

If the weather is hot and sunny, then this is the best place in Eindhoven to sit and drink on a terrace. Half litres of Hertog Jan Weizener are recommended. If the weather is not OK, inside the bar is small and cozy.

De Gaper is a great bar making nice drinks. They have a lot of beers, but also a wide range of whiskeys and other drinks, and is a Perfect place to start or end the night out.

The entrance of the “brown” café does not give away the fact that the restaurant upstairs has a quality offer for a night out. The restaurant breathes a more modern atmosphere. Both in interior as in gastronomy. Very well advisable.

We went with 5 people for a birthday dinner. Excellent quality of food. I had a steak roast (2p dish) that was grilled on coal. The meet was tender, served on just with some herbs, very natural. The service was very friendly and the cook...came out to check on his cooking! When you walk into this restaurant it's easy to mistake for a bar, the restaurant is on the 1st floor but they also serve food on the terrace. Just so you know, the bar is very popular and can be found the the Dutch bar top 100 listing.More

100 chracters is a lot to describe a place that can be reviewed with one word "excellent" The restaurant upstairs gives you a beatifull view over square "Wilhelmina" The food is excellent as well is the service. Start with a drink at the bar before...moving to your table in the restaurant.More

I had a pan seared steak, topped with Duck liver, with a side of beats/vegies and asparagus wrapped in bacon. Paired with a pumpkin bier.... I'm really not sure how to describe my meal without making it sound sexual. The service was great, the place...is small with lots of candle light, and it overlooks a pleasant plaza by a near canal.More
