Hotspot Groningen: Dot

Hotspot Groningen: Dot

Hi food lovers,

Last week we had dinner at Dot. Dot is a ”gastrobar” located at the Ebbingekwartier in Groningen (8 minute walk from the Grote Markt). At Dot you can enjoy a coffee, tea, lunch, a drink and dinner. Besides a bar and restaurant on the first floor, they also offer a cinema/congress room on the second floor.

As you can see in the pictures, the building is very unique. We liked the atmosphere inside. It’s a bit dark but also cozy and fun. The place is really large, they have two floors and a terrace outside. We can imagine how perfect this place is for parties! But also for working and have meetings.

Bar on the second floor

Els ordered the butter-chicken with naan bread, couscous and vegetables. Megan ordered the Peking duck with mini ”pancakes”, hoisin, paksoi and spring onion. On the side, we shared the fries with Parmesan cheese and truffle mayonnaise. The food was quite good, nothing to write home about, but just good. However, the amount of food you get for the price is actually great! It is not expensive at all, so great for students. They offer lots of different types of food, from sushi to burgers to taco’s. This is great when you’re with a group and everyone wants something else. Personally, we’re not always the biggest fans of these types of restaurants because it’s hard to be good at everything. And last but not least, the service was great, the people who served us were really nice.

So if you are looking for a not-too-expensive place to eat, with lots of different types of food on the menu, we will recommend Dot. We will come back when the weather is nice to have drinks on the terrace. And of course to watch a movie!
