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.

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.

Once again lovely evening! Fabulous ribs, great service and atmosphere. It was my 15 year old daughter’s birthday and this was celebrated with sparklers at every course and a photo capturing the evening to take home!

My wife and I have been eating at Gaanderij at least 2 or 3 times a year for the last 15 years, if not longer. We have tried most of the other restaurants in Leiden during that time, yet Gaanderij remains our favourite. We particularly like its French Bistro feel. The food quality is of a consistently high standard, the service is welcoming and attentive and the prices reasonable. The carpaccio, spare ribs and beef steak can be particularly recommended. The red and white house wines are also more than acceptable. Enjoy!
