Our restaurant is located in a characteristic villa on the edge of the city centre of Enschede. Your visit turns into a comprehensive experience: in a modern, homely atmosphere, you may enjoy international, contemporary and frequently changing dishes. The varied selection of wines completes the picture.
From the restaurant, you are able to take a glimpse into our open kitchen, while our team personally ensures that no wishes remain unanswered. In a relaxed and refreshing fashion, we offer an all-embracing night out.


The feeling of coming home in gastronomic manner distinguishes our style. Upon entering the restaurant, the team will look after you. Not only personal attention of our employees but also the unique interior: a contemporary design, where the characteristic elements of the old, monumental building are maintained, will surprise you.


The seasons, the supply and the best products determine our selection. The menu, one of the dishes or our refreshing wine offer can vary on a daily, weekly or monthly base. Joann offers but one menu, with a choice between 5 to 7 courses.

Aperitive, wine, water and coffee or tea service are included. The wines are carefully selected for a harmonious composition. The cheese trolley with a season-based choice enriches the night: a guarantee for an unforgettable culinary evening.
