Been here with my wife, athmosphere was very nice, gave a nice Cuban feeling. The food wasnt very special, but ok. We ordered a cuba libre, but it didn't taste like it should!

Very nice place, friendly staff, great food and service. Would definitely return when back in Groningen. Reasonably price for the amount of food you get.

I visited the Hemingway last week with my fiancé and his parents. It was very busy and there was a great atmosphere in the place. The food was very tasty and the staff went out of their way to explain the menu to us as we don't speak Dutch. There is live music in the evening and the cocktails are... More

Hemingway's serves the regular tapas, however, nothing special, all the regular tapas unfortunate. The tapas do taste good.

Nice service, went extra lengths. Food was ok, but not the best tapas I've ever had. They served a rose wine from 2012, which tasted horrible. They exchanged it for a bottle from the neighbors without any hesitation. That was really nice. They tried to make us feel at home. The food was ok, enough variation for a fair price.

My son brought us here the first night we arrived, he had booked a table but don't think you have to. The food was delicious, lots to choose from and not overly expensive, I am comparing to London prices, we had prawns, albondigas, spare ribs, rice, tostadas, chicken, it seemed endless! We were asked if we wanted dishes all brought... More

My best friend and I always come here when I'm in the country. We planned to try 'all' restaurants in Groningen, but once we ate here, we always came back! The food is simply amazing and delicious. The atmosphere and the staff is great! You can't miss the nachos as a starter and the goat cheese tapas is great!

Tapas is great food and Hemingway's is the way to go. Lots of choice in meat, fish and veggie tapas. The Alitas de Pollo (chicken) and the Tostade Serrano were fabulous and together with the bread, aijoli and wine I had an excellent diner! Go back? Is tapas Spanish?

Reserved for 14 guests. Great menu. Good choice. Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Desert was very nice as well. Even fireworks on the desert (at request). Great communication prior to booking. Won't regret having your diner there.
