About the restaurant Restaurant Meatcave

Dining in a unique setting

A little exciting it is, to dine in a basement that looks like a cave. You don’t know what you get to eat, the menu is a big surprise. Robert Lobensteijn is the chef and Big Green Egg expert, tonight this grill master is your best friend. The drinks are original and totally not what you're used to. Go for adventure and discover the good side of life.

Everything was excellent! We were all very satisfied.


The uruguayan steak was one of the best steaks I've had in years (and I'm Argentinian).


Please keep the quality and prices as they are, it is perfect.


We still miss you in Leiden :-(


Cheers,


Roman (&Robin, Michiel and Hans)

Excellent eating experience! Nice ambiance! Menu is perfect! Meal was served hot and flavorful.The meats are the star dishes and were always perfectly cook well seasoned! juicy! nicely rested! and very tender. We had around 7 courses with wine paring, each courses were presented, plated, garnishes beautifully! Chef Luca and Chef Robert nailed it perfectly. In addition to a nice dinner, we had a delightful sommelier JILL. She has the perfect balance of friendliness and efficiency and made sure we had the perfect evening.

Yesterday was out first time at the Meatcave! The host was very friendly and helpful and he and the chef were very easy to talk to. We had an allergy, but they managed to work with it so we could both enjoy the meals.
All meals were meat-centered (as expected), but after a 4-course dinner, we were happy and content.
They use various really well-cooked meats and all meats are soft and nicely seasoned without too much else going on. We will certainly return there!! So nice!

Dissapointed because they present the chefs that has written 7 cooking books etc, and the first dish comes with a “tapas” table with spanish “serrano” ham and chorizo and another pair or things , with 3 little slices of half bread for 2 people. I am spanish and that was kind of a “laught”. The “serrano” is the cheap ham we use to put in bread to make a sandwich and chorizo aswell . The main course was good meat, but only with a poor presented little tasteless potatoes and one green asperge. Dessert very little portion “very exclusive” design but not impressive, eatable though. From the started to main course they took more than 40 min . Certainly I would not recomend it.
Restaurant
We are sorry that you where disappointed in your Meatcave experience. Our first course consists of the best pieces of hams and meats available. We are very interested in what more special meats you know. We cut it ourselves and are proud of the quality we can offer. Too bad we get a very low score from you on all the topics.

Great experience, we loved the place and the concept. We went for a 5 course meal, most of the dishes were great, but not all of them.

We asked kindly and specifically that one of us wanted the steak well done. To my surprise we received a lecture and they said the best they could do is medium but in the end they disregarded this and brought it rare. We didn’t want to receive another lecture so my guest ate it.

The concept of the restaurant is quite fantastic! It really is a meat cave! The restaurant itself is underground, looks very much like an wine cellar so if you are claustrophobic, this place might not be for you.

My boyfriend and I were there for our anniversary dinner. The ambiance was casual but also initimate enough as there weren’t too many tables. We chose to have 4courses with dessert and neither one of the dish was a disappointment. Our third course, which was the steak, was cooked to a perfect medium rare and seasoned only with salt and pepper. Despite the simplicity, it was up there as one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Dessert was my personal favorite as was a pleasant surprise as it also contains meat (bacon)! The drinks however were a little expensive. It was around €50 for a bottle of wine, a cup of tea and a gin and tonic. Otherwise, this meat cave lives up to its name.
