“Very good!”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

We had a very enjoyable evening with a party of 6. Everything in this place oozes quality, a nice relaxed "patron" serves a very good dinner with fine wines.
Restrooms impeccable!
Only thing is that after four hours the chairs are not very forgiving..(or is it the age)
The trolley is famous and rightfully so, yum!

“Inventiveness and tradition”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

This restaurant is a staple in Groningen: the starter and dessert trolley and cheese trolley concept is still alive and kicking. The Pauw Menu and the Menu of the Month vary appropriately and offer ecellent value for money. You can mix and match, and the restaurant is very flexible. The staff are friendly and kmnow what they are about. The kitchen is once again lively and has responded to increasing competition by raising its game to maintain its reputation and market share.
If you are really interested in wine, ask to see the spec ial wine list as well - there are gems to be had for a fraction of the ridiculous prices in Amsterdam.
It's a place where I have aten for more than 20 years, and it is still as welcoming, as interesting, and as good value for money as ever.

I hadn't been back for three years but last night in De Pauw we had a terrific evening. The menu 'De Pauw' was delicious, very prettily presented and it was all served with a smile. It was a great pleasure to be back in the place I have so many good memories of.

“Duch interpretation of french cousine...”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

Sipmathitic place in milk collors with the pretendous Metr and touch or stillish aperence. It's way to take one of the menues cose u will find lost youeself in the reach combination of ingredients of each single meal. Just follow the fix meny. They are for €37 and €52. Small sises of everything in the plate but quite innovative and sometimes unexpected combination of tast.
Try it, thats good.
Vinelist is short but good. Good vites and very good reds for €37 - 55 range. Take Margoux 2007, the best one.
Desert trolley is good as well. I recomend to take set of everithing. Its not a lot and u will try everything.
Good and expected quality for money.

“We were expecting more.. It is slightly overrated.”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 via mobile

To be fair, there was nothing that tasted bad. However, the food was extremely basic and simple. Only difference between this and any other restaurant is maybe the nice interior decor and service ( which was really good). Food was.. Mediocre and unoriginal. It is food that I could easily cook up myself minus the fancy presentation and useless decoational piece of chive.
