It is over 20 years since we last ate at Malle Jan. The starters (fish carpaccio, blue cheese salad) were both delicious but too large so the mains (red mullet filets, lemon chicken), although tasty, weren't appreciated as much as they might have been. As a result there was no room for a dessert! The wine. a Viognier, was served at the correct temperature and complemented the food well.

Good french restaurant in Leiden. Worth to be tried. Unfortunately it was a bit too cold to enjoy the tables outside in their internal courtyard

All the food was spicy, which me and rest adults liked BUT we were also with kids. As the only choice from the menu for the kids were some fries we chose to order for them hamburgers. The waiter understood very well that the hamburgers were for the kids and he didn't say a word that they are so spicy/hot/chilly. And of course kids couldn't eat at all. We manage somehow to feed them with our food and when afterwards we told the waiter that he should worn, he was arrogant enough to tell that this is our fault, that we order not from kid's menu !
Otherwise we like the Bistro, the atmosphere, the food, everything, just now we know - it is not child-friendly.

Always pleasant. Foreign friends insist on spare ribs at Malle Jan every time they visit Leiden. Good choice.
