Eating Out

Brasserie Bakboord - [3] on the water in Almere Haven, is an excellent place to eat, and has a relaxed atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, and the food is a joy! Tip: choose the 3- or 4-course menu with wine suggestions (as long as you're not driving home, that is!!) Tel: 036-5404040.

For something special try the Kemphaan Restaurant - [4]. (It's just outside town, so you'll need a car to get there). The ingredients are almost all home-grown. There's no fixed menu, they just create a menu with whatever is fresh on the day. High quality food and what you eat will be a surprise! The 5-course menu is very filling, so if you're not a big eater, remember to ask for a 3-course menu when you book. Excellent for vegetarians. Tel: 036-5323844.

Drink

Most bars are on the Grote Markt.

Sleep

Hotel Anno is in the centre, on the Grote Markt. The Bastion Hotel is on the outskirts of the town, just off the A6.
