INSIDER tip

Wat je ook kiest qua menu, sla het dessert niet over. Als een van de chefs namelijk ook nog chocolatier en patissier is, dan weet je dat de desserts fantastisch zijn. Zijn interpretatie van de befaamde Sacher torte is wat mij betreft lekkerder dan het origineel!

The food simply wasn't that good. We had the lunch plate for two. While presentation was lovely, and the duck terrine was quite tasty, the fish soup was flavorless, the beef with hazelnuts had the wrong texture, and the relish with the golden raisins was not very good at all.

Het Prentenkabinet is our favourite place in Leiden to eat out in style! Having been to different rooms, the front one (windows to the square, massive fireplace, large bar) is definitely the most impressive one. The food is generally delicious and nicely presented. The portions are generous - you will feel full after three courses! We particularly love the limoncello/prosecco/vodka sorbet, hope it never disappears from the menu.

The Prentenkabinet is a lovely restaurant situated in a beautifully historic part of Leiden. The service at this restaurant is very formal, but not a bad thing. The waiters are gracious, but not over friendly and do not both you much besides for filling up your glass and telling you what you are served.

The food here is of a very high quality and the cook is very skilled in technique. Also, the wine choice here are very daring. They must have an excellent sommelier at this resturant as the wines fit perfectly with the dishes. To be honest, this is not to say that I found every wine I had there delicious, as I found some far too 'controversial' for a wine menu. However, they fit excellently with the dishes and really complimented the different flavours I experienced adding an extra dimension to the food.

The decor can be described as 'historic' however, if you are going on a busy night is is more than likely you will be sat in one of the inner rooms which are windowless. I find this makes the restaurant rather stuffy and feeling a bit claustrophobic, while really you have plenty of space with a nice decor.

I would head to the Pretenkabinet if you are in Leiden, but make sure you get a nice table to compliment the delicious food you will be eating :).
