12x Fine dining restaurants

Exciting times: the annual Michelin ceremony. Time for us to take stock! We have compiled a list of restaurants with a Michelin star and restaurants where a star would not be out of place. We wish you an unforgettable experience in advance! 

Wiesen *

The restaurant of Yuri and Jessie Wiesen is widely praised for its refined and tasteful dishes. They describe their dishes as 'classic in a modern way with influences from around the world'. The restaurant is not big, but it is cozy and stylish.


The Goyvaerts brothers, Jip, Jesse, and Yelle, keep on surprising their guests in their hip restaurant at Stratumseind. They learned the 'ropes of the trade' from Yuri Wiesen and have managed to turn that knowledge and experience to their advantage. Tip: Jesse co-starred with VANTOT in the series Hungry for Design!

Zarzo *

Zarzo has a contemporary kitchen with subtle influences of the classic Spanish cuisine, thanks to the roots of chef Adrian Zarzo. The menus or the a la carte package deal contain both high-quality regional and worldly products.


BENZ at Kazerne

Kazerne is home to two restaurants: Kazerne & BENZ. At the latter, the dishes are described as authentic French, including a head-to-tail principle. All thanks to new chef Thomas Voets. Together with Maître/sommelier van der Voort, they offer a unique gastronomic experience. 


Ready for a gastronomic surprise from chef de cuisine Daan van Lieshout? Book a table at Doyy! The service (hello host Yavuz Yildrim) is hospitable, the flavors diverse, and the chef knows how to excite—highly recommended!

De Luytervelde

The Luytervelde can be found in the north of Eindhoven, in a former farmhouse with a garden. According to the team, they know the secret to savoring and are happy to share that secret with their guests. The kitchen works daily with seasonal products.


World Kitchen by Shiran

Small-scale restaurant with worldly flavors. Star chef Shiran Mieras runs world Kitchen by Shiran. He gained knowledge and skills at admirable restaurants: Luc Bellings **, Yves Mattagne **, and Sergio Herman ***. Nowadays, the former sous-chef of The Jane knows how to convey his eye for detail and unfailing feeling in his Eindhoven spot.

Mei Wah

For over 50 years, Mei Wah has surprised guests from Eindhoven and beyond with Chinese cuisine. When the third generation came to the helm, it was time to go back to the Chinese authenticity, and so it happened. The Michelin guide describes the restaurant as a place of distinction.

Bistro Sophie

Bistro Sophie is no ordinary bistro. Many restaurants use the term Sophie stands head and shoulders above the rest. The honorable mention and the Michelin sign alone prove this. The Mediterranean preparations and flavors take you to warm places. And all that for the price of a fine-dining menu.



The highest restaurant on this list. You can find VANE on the 14th floor of the NH Collection hotel on the Vestdijk. Chef Casimir Evens is at the head of the kitchen brigade. His dishes surprise, amaze and leave us wanting more. Much more.

UMAMI by Han

Do you enjoy sharing and tasting? At UMAMI, they do social dining. According to the Michelin guide, UMAMI has a top price-quality ratio. Apart from the restaurant section, UMAMI also has an open Food Bar with Fruits de Mer and a steam kitchen, where different types of bao buns with pickled vegetables are prepared.


Valenzia by Zarzo has made way for a new concept: Barolo. Instead of Spanish, chef Adrian Zarzo started experimenting with Italian influences. You can find them at Stratumseind for, among other things, delicious risotto or opt for different dishes from the menu.
