Want to go for a drink with your friends? Or perhaps a bite to eat with your family. A romantic diner with your significant other? The bars and restaurants in Enschede offer something for every occasion. Surrounding a church that has its roots in medieval times, and now serves as an exclusive location for parties and events, are a number of cafés, restaurants, cinemas and theatres. In the small streets spreading from the ‘Oude Markt’ you’ll find other restaurants and bistros with a more intimate atmosphere.


A common phenomenon in Enschede is the ‘Daghap’ which is a sort of Daily Special that restaurants have on offer. For a fixed and reasonable price several restaurant offer a main course (and sometimes a starter and/or dessert); often a dish that changes daily or weekly and is tied in with the season. You can ask what the Daghap is at the restaurant, or check the Dutch website www.hapdedag.nl, which features some of the restaurant in Enschede.
