    De Hemel

    This youthful bistro, at home in the historic Commanderie van St Jan, cooks up all-day food, including a stylish high tea, shared dinner plates and tempting between-meal snacks to accompany the 12 home-brewed beers it serves on tap from the basement brewery. At weekends dining spills upstairs, into a stylish vintage-styled dining room with sweeping views of the swirling Waal River.

    De Firma

    Given its near-water location on a 16th-century street in the so-called 'lower town', De Firma's appealing beachy vibe is appropriate. Vintage, sea-blue floor tiling and all-white tables and chairs create a trendy nautical vibe, and the shared tapas-style dishes cater to all moods and tastes with their colourful world influences.

    Flores

    One of several restaurants with terraces across the street from Valkofpark, this sophisticated bistro cooks up fresh, seasonal fare such as candied sea bass with asparagus and wild-rice risotto, bream in crayfish cream, and various tender, charcoal-grilled Black Angus beef cuts to share. In front of the fireplace, the kitchen bar and alfresco patio are all wonderful spots for an oyster aperitif.
