The Mercatu restaurant is located between the greenery and the water on the edge of the Reeuwijkse Hout. Under the same roof are an ice cream parlour, coffee bar & lunchroom and restaurant. All three of them breathe Italian cuisine, because what is more Italian than velvet coffee, good wine and an extensive dinner?

Hospitality and a warm atmosphere are of paramount importance to an osteria. At Mercatu you can therefore dine the way you want: with antipasti or main courses, alone or with each other. Enjoy a richly filled salad, a delicious pasta or a crispy pizza, always with the best ingredients.

These products form the perfect combination of local specialties and typical Italian components. A balanced collaboration between Mercatu and Italian chefs yields an authentic Mediterranean menu, adapted to the Groene Hart. At Mercatu we serve accessible Southern Italian dishes. Not too complex, but very good. Accessible, but with flair.
