It's very easy to find café in Valkenswaard and there are loads od bars that do reasonable pubfood, but restaurantwise Valkenswaard has been a bit of a desert since Normandy closed. This has changed now. Vida Pura is an excellent restaurant with very good food. We loged the parad of starters (plate and taste were immaculate), as well as the barbecued beef that was our entree. Great chesses for dessert. The wines are reasonably priced. Do try their ports. Service is professional and very friendly, but could be a bit sharper (try to look a bit more in the direction of tables your not serving). Our kids loved the place and the food, even though the restaurant does not have a seperate kids menu. Recommended!
