Welcome at Bistro de Luif

Welcome at Bistro de Luif

Bistro de Luif is located in the middle of downtown Venlo. The bistro is part of De Maaspoort. Theater-goer or not, our bistro is the place to be for a delicious dinner, extensive drinks, fine lunch or breakfast. We want you to feel at home with us. Our ingredients are super fresh because we source them from local growers and producers. In addition, we use as little packaging materials as possible and use all parts of our ingredients. That way we limit our footprint and not only make delicious but also honest dishes.

Our dishes are just a little different. The brioche bread of our club sandwich makes it surprising! And don't feel like meat or fish for once? We make the most delicious Vega dishes, like our Nut Cornburger or Avocado Toast. Curious about our menu? Click Here!

Service could be better, not really eye for replenishing drinks when it runs out.Food was top notch, to the lunch menu may... somewhat wider, here they are still somewhat behind the rest of the city.Lees meer

Food was good but staff runs after themselves a bit and communication is not there.Very pushy for you of everything... to smear which must also be paid for.Lees meer

Nice German gentleman, good coffee

We ate (outside on a cozy terrace) a delicious steak. One "rare" and the other "medium," both... perfectly flavored. Accompanying salad was also tasty. The fries surprisingly (delicious!) with zest and peppers fried along. Concluding with a delicious "Knickerbocker", definitely recommended! If we are ever in Venlo again we will definitely come back here!Lees meer

Had a delicious lunch! The atmosphere was very good and the service fast!
Maud P.
Nice modern "theater" restaurant. The location is especially perfect, on a cozy square in Venlo is this restaurant. ... It sits under the Venlo theater in the same building. This makes it convenient if you want a bite to eat before a performance. Then this is definitely recommended. If you just want to have a nice dinner you can but then I think the atmosphere is too much influenced by the theater.Lees meer

Very nice place to eat. The value for money is really perfect and the staff is quick and nice. The... main course took a bit long, but there were also a bit more of us than the other guests. There is a very nice and relaxed atmosphere and the food is tremendously delicious. Definitely worth a visit if you want good food and don't want to pay the main price!Lees meer

Limited menu but very tasty. Friendly service.

Although they were incredibly friendly and humorous, they tried tremendously hard for those with intolerances, it took... it took a long time for the food to arrive and we were the very last ones in the room for the performance. This caused a lot of stress for my parents, which was unfortunate.The food was otherwise excellent.Lees meer
