    matig diner, duur voorgerecht, matige bediening, lawaaierig, meer een eetcafé dan een restaurant, lang wachten, veel te druk, feestende studenten, hoofdgerecht is karig.

    Vriendelijk personeel. Lekkere spareribs. Leuke ambiance op begane grond, boven wat kaal ingericht. Leuk restaurant om gezellig samen te eten.

    Heerlijk gegeten in dit gastvrije en gezellige restaurant. De friet was echt super lekker en de sfeer heel gezellig in de sfeervolle achteraf straatjes van Leiden.

    It was a really nice and tasteful Christmas dinner! Everything we ate there was well cooked, it tasted awsome, and had incredible flavour. We really loved that place! And people were also very nice to us, explained what was every dish made of and offered an excelent service. We totally recommend this restaurant!!

    The Gaanderij is my idea of what a bistro should be. My wife and I have eaten here regularly for as long as I can remember. More than 20 years at least. The menu provides a good choice of starters and main courses. The sticky spare ribs are a popular choice The wine is reasonably priced and of a good quality. The service is friendly and prompt. Recommended.

    I've forgotten how many times I've eaten at Gaanderij with my wife, family or friends over the years, but definitely a few dozen. When eating out in Leiden it's our restaurant of choice and rarely have we been disappointed. The menu and wine list are not extensive, but what they do do they do well. Favourites are the spare ribs and Black Angus steak.

    We sat outside the restaurant in the terras/street sitting area. It was very pleasant on a warm late June evening

    Ok. The food was good compared to the standard in Leiden and the Netherlands, but a little bit overpriced. We were 4, shared an starter, had a main course each, shared 2 desserts and 2 bottles of the cheapest one in the menu. 42€ each.

    The restaurant was cold, no heating on. The food was not fresh, it tasted as it had been reheated. We never got the 20% discount that we were promised.
