Named after Ernest Miller Hemingway, the Cuban explorer and writer. The many small dishes in tapas-form show the rich diversity of traditions and cultures that Hemingway saw on his journeys. 

They are our neighbours, but also a cosy restaurant with a Cuban atmosphere, cocktails and music.


A beloved restaurant among the locals. Classic Tuscan meals are served, from antipasta to meat- and fish dishes. They use fresh ingredients and Tuscan olive oil.

In the summer you can eat outside, surrounded by monumental walls, enjoying your Italian wine. Chianti, a real regional product, is known as one of the most popular Italian wines. 



Moro has a 'Moorish kitchen' (South Mediterranean) with an overwhelming affluence of intense flavours and aromas. Century-old influences from Spain, Nothern Africa and the Eastern-Mediterranean area. 

The restaurant does have an oriental touch and in the summer you can find a lovely (lounge) terrace outside. 


The large monumental building has a lounge- and reading area, city café, multiple sitting rooms,  a terrace and roof terrace with a view on the provincial hall and Martini Church.

They prepare meals according own recipes with eco-efficient products. On the background you hear calm music. The interior is old & new combined in a special way.

De Kater


Our neighbours and a well known local favourite in Groningen. Besides dishes like their "famous' spareribs (what they're known for), they have a varied menu. They also have the option to order half portions, in case you're less hungry or cannot choose. 

Tasty food, quick service and relaxing music in an old and cosy building which used to be a silo. 

Tapas (Spanish)

Cervantes is a typical Spanish tapasrestaurant. Small bites, from albongidas to Serrano Ham and many fish- and meat dishes. 

Seven days a week it's nicely busy with a relaxing atmosphere. You can choose for 'unlimited tapas' or a la carte.

On the waterside of the canal you can find French; a great place to have a bite and drink, especially because of all of their craft beers! Since 2018 they have a brand new look, chef and a great terrace next to the marina. Good to remember: their Lazy Weekend Brunch! Perfect for a late breakfast, for when you had (maybe a bit too much?) fun the night before.


Located in the corner building where in the past, coffee was roasted for the British and Dutch royal house, is now restaurant The Branderij! On the terrace outside you can enjoy the sun and inside you find cozy, oldfashioned furnature where delicious meals from the whole world are served.
