The brainchild of culinary trio Guillaume de Beer, Johanneke van Iwaarden and Freek van Noortwijk, Breda opened in 2015 on the picturesque Singel canal and was an immediate hit. In a light and airy yet intimate restaurant, you can expect a fixed menu starting at three courses at lunchtime for €32.50 (£28), up to “de hele mikmak” (the whole shebang) at dinnertime for €86.50 (£75). Dietary requirements are of course catered for, and wine pairings are available, too – many of which are organic and unfiltered wines. Dishes are eclectic in their flavours, but with frequent nods to their southern Dutch roots (Breda is named after a city in the southern province of Noord-Brabant by the same name). The service is also impeccable.
