Original and, at the same time, well balanced combinations of tastes, all the dishes in the four course menu. This was really good!

They say that, primarily, you eat with your nose. However, what about your eyes? Isn't looking at food also important? Heck no, according to the creators of this "dining in the dark" restaurant. The food was expensive and tasteless, and, oh yeah, you couldn't see a dang thing. Guess what? It's now figuratively lights out, too.

This was a meal with close family to celebrate my son's graduation from the university and so we wanted a special place to celebrate. The staff were excellent introduced themselves and were very attentive. The wine suggested were superb. The food was outstanding. This was the best meal I have ever had and added to the wonderful day we experienced. Even the chef went round the tables that night and was so interesting to talk to , he clearly lives his profession. It was not a cheap meal but was well worth the entire experience. Thank you.

We are vacationing in the Netherlands and chose Leiden as a central location to do day trips to other cities with one day staying in Leiden. We used Trip Advisor to guide us to In Den Doofpot. The food was amazing and the service was very attentive. The little pre meal snacks specially made by the chef were a treat. It is obvious the attention the chef pays to presentation and flavor combinations. We choose the five course meal with wine pairing and all courses were excellent. The wines were not the typical Italian or French but were chosen from New Zealand and Portugal. All were excellent. The gentelman bringing the wine explained to us details about where they were from and what to expect from the wine and he was very acurate. We really enjoyed the detailed presentation, excellent attentive service and the flavors of the food and wine.

After a very disappointing visit a few years ago, I had lunch yesterday: Fish and vegetables. IDD has redeemed itself and convinced me to return soon and have dinner. Food was excellent. Service very friendly and non intrusive. Afternoon well spent

We come here once a year, usually because we have a voucher for one 4 course meal for free BUT even without voucher we would come. Everything about this place is perfect if you enjoy delicious food and wine where every detail of appearance and flavour has been meticulously planned. It is pricey but hey, perfection comes at a price and it is worth every penny!

The composition of the dinner was outstanding. We had the menu with five courses. Each course was a extremely tasty and came with a small surprise. The timing of the dishes was also perfect. We love the atmosphere and the decor. Despite of being such a sophisticated restaurant it still is very relaxed. Having been in many restaurants with stars, this is my new favorite one!

Excellent food and beautifully presented. The idea of choosing the number of courses is great as you can pace yourself and if you want more then simply add on a course. Staff polite, courteous and knowledgeable. Lovely understated ambience and the decor was crisp and clean - classic but contemporary too. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back again on my next visit to Leiden.

We are not really familiar with the Leiden restaurant scene so after a short Google research decided to go to with the best one Leiden has to offer according to TripAdvisor and iens . Have to say : glad we did!

Service is impeccable ...friendly yet professional. The food .... Many highlights! Think the beetroot dessert is one that will circle around in our memories for years to come! Only this dish makes this restaurant worth the trip! But there were many others: fish roulade was to die for and also the chicken is superb! Sommelier chose excellent accompanying wines and the explanations why he chose those wines made the food even more worthwhile. What also impressed me is that all the staff spoke fluent English : a gesture my Cypriot girlfriend really appreciated. Finally ... Did I mention the chef is only 27???? My goodness ...

In my view .. Michelin can (and should!) stop by any time soon!

Guys keep it up! We had a great time and will surely be back at some point in the future!
