Our tip for this weekend: ‘Op Zuid’. This restaurant is located in an old steel fabric. It opened a few weeks ago and is a great spot, especially with good weather. There is a terrace near the canal, which makes it a great place to enjoy the sunshine with one of the many draft beers.

Main course prices: 9 – 20 euro


‘Op Zuid’ serves great food as well: the menu is inspired by NY style influences and dishes are made by their international cooks. There is a big pizza oven and the meat is prepared on a charcoal grill. We tried the ‘Fancy Wall Street’, a NY style burger with mushrooms and egg. We can undoubtedly recommend this burger.

‘Op Zuid’ is owned and managed by a couple and it is their second restaurant. Besides ‘Op Zuid’ they also own ‘Guusjes’ in the popular neighbourhood ‘Tuinwijk’. The owners find it important to keep their kitchen international, this helps them to keep making the unique and delicious food on the menu.
