Description: De Vrijheid offers their guests delicious and fair dishes. Made with the most beautiful local products. On a location where you can taste the seasons in all its elements. Where we are honoured to receive you. Not a classical menu, but more attention to prevent food waste. Chef Raymond Hengeveld and his team prepare a 3- to 6-course “Proef de Vrijheid” menu every day. Next to the menu we can serve you house wines, pairing wines or an personal choice from the extensive wine list which has been carefully put together by Melle Bakker. For lunch you can choose for the 2/3-course lunch menu or a dish from the varied lunch menu. Obviously, we always have a splendid view over the abutting lake, het Pikmeer.

If one likes to enjoy a refined Restaurant in the province of Friesland in the Netherlands, Restaurant de Vrijheid at the edge of the town of Grouw is and excellent choice. It is a gem of a restaurant, overlooking a beautiful lake, called "Pikmeer" in Dutch.
Everything can be rated as excellent: the menu, the cuisine, the management and service and the location. In summertime, the spacious terrace on the shore of the lake is very charming, while also from inside the restaurant one has beautiful views over the lake, in particular during sunset.
For us it was an absolute delight to have diner in this elegant restaurant.

Great location and great service; food was ok, 'save'. Could be more exiting. Wines were more outspoken, with some ok and some really excellent.

De Vrijheid is located right smack on the waterfront in Grouw and the best way to get there is have the restaurant pick you up by boat.
There is a huge terrace and a small play area for the kids. The terrace has an amazing view but the tables are set up very basic with ugly tablecloths. They could do a lot more with this terrace. However the inside looks much better but in summertime you would want to sit outside.

The menu covers local specialities and local produce and we actually had a nice dinner. I was especcialy impressed with the desserts. See pictures. However I had a hard time choosing what to eat as there were things like eel and local stuff I am not really into. But what I finally ordered was really good.
