The Dulac became instantly popular with Dutch students when it began to offer half-price meals to those with a student ID – but even without the discount, the place offers appetizers, entrées, and drinks at reasonable prices, and in a delightful environment.

Inspired by the French book illustrator Edmund Dulac, the original artist-owner turned the spacious restaurant into something of an eclectic dreamscape by decorating the restaurant with intricate tables, quirky lighting fixtures, telephone booths, antique instruments, treasure chests, giant vases, and theater props.

The rooms are wrapped in dark, warm colors that soften the atmosphere and create a romantic vibe where friends and groups linger over food and drinks.

With soft jazz playing in the background, the enchanting restaurant makes for a perfect escape on a rainy afternoon, while the two outdoor terraces offer a pleasant alternative for sunny-day people-watching.

Tip from Emma:

If you don’t have a Dutch student ID or a friend who can help you out with the discount, never fear. Dulac has such great prices to begin with, it’s easy enough to find affordable appetizers and cocktails on the menu. Make sure to try the piña coladas!

Dulac User Reviews

Affordable food and atmosphere
Stéphanie T. Dec 11, 2012
Perfect place for students or anybody living on a low budget, Dulac offers a nice range of food at pretty affordable prices. Students get a discount with a proper student ID, but most of the food is anyway pretty cheap. More than the food, I like the place decorum, creating a quite unique atmosphere. On sunny or warm days, the little terrace is always nice to chill out. Because Dulac is also a nice place just to get a coffee and hang out with your friends or work a bit. Perfect place to start a night out in the area.
Good food price, and you might stay a while

Dulac has gone through major changes with their hotel, but they still offer student rate dinners that bring in a reliably steady crowd. They have a modest cocktail menu, but the people who go there don't want anything fancy. I always get the feeling they want to be more than just a place to eat, but pushing a party vibe isn't necessarily going to create on. It has to be an organic situation, and some times it does happen here, but I'd say Dulac shines best as a unique dining location on a busy street with many other options for a night out.
