    Great food and nice service, highly recommended! We enjoyed sitting in the garden a lot, quiet and relaxed on a warm day. An amuse was a pleasant touch to the meal.

    We booked for Christmas lunch. We asked for a children’s menu for our 8yr old but it was the adults meal with a bit of fish slapped on top! The dessert, a cheesecake was unpalatable and very heavy. The three adults on our table are all sugar adults addicts but it’s was like a brick! The starter of salmon was delicious though. Usually the food here is fabulous, but we were a little disappointed.

    A big disappointment! Had lunch with friends and ordered the 12 uurtje. Soup was good , but the long plate was brought with cured meats, little salads ec. It looked nice but taste was mediocre!! We were pretty much the only ones in the place. Now I know why!! The server looked astonished when I asked for some plates to eat off of. we ended up eating the whole meal from our bread plates. No need to return..which is a pity because the front room looks so nice and it is a great location!!! Jammer!!!!

    Extremely small portions of pretentious food. All meats were good, but not excellent. I have expected more as it was said to be one of the best restaurants in Leiden. We would not come back though.

    We came here for our wedding anniversary and were very happy with everything. The service was great, just the right amount of time between courses, friendly and professional. The food was delicious and the atmosphere gezellig.

    Delightful setting and beautiful food. First visit for many years, but the high standard remains. One slight moan, the service was a little slow, but it was very busy. We will be back.

    Very attentive service, very nice atmosphere. The food was nice, very "old school" but at the same time modern and fresh dishes. Beautiful, rustic interior without being stuffy. A lovely evening.

    Restaurant service was cold and impersonal and I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone . Decor was stark and generally uninviting.

    Next time go somewhere else !! If you give a 2 for furnishing then go to the MC Team Prentenkabinet
