    The restaurant is very beautiful and the staff was friendly. The food was very good but didn't blow me away. Specially the first dish, I think it was lacking flavor. However, the meat of the second dish was really something! Worth a visit ????

    Beautiful location in the historic center of Leiden. Cozy interior with a second floor that offers a view on the craftsmanship in the kitchen downstairs. Very tasty food combining some unique tastes. Highly likely to revisit The Bishop later this year. Wonderful evening and friendly staff.

    This was a lovely restaurant with amazing food. We had the chefs menu which was so delicious. The decor adds to the experience. Fantastic wines and very friendly staff. Will definitely recommend and look forward to going back.

    Good wine pairing, good food, but two of the courses was just average. Very nice restaurant though, and I do want to come back:)

    Amazing location: the inside of the building is very characteristic and makes a lovely ambience Great food: as an Italian my food standards are rather high and it is not easy to please me. The Bishop greatly managed the task! Wonderful service: as soon as we entered the restaurant we immediately felt very welcomed by the owner of the place. During dinner, our waitress made us feel at home, very kind and attentive with an impressive knowledge about wines, liquors and food. Definitely recommended!

    took too long for a four course meal. Almost fell asleep. I have been to many Michelin stars, should not have taken this long.

    It was simply perfecti.e. very customer orientated. The food was very good, service as well. Realtion price / quality also very reasonable. The only thing what was not so nice was that our table (2 persons) was adjacent to the front windows in the 1st floor and cold air dropped from the one-pane-windows as it was quite cold outsidei

    Excellent restaurant with assortment of very good wines. International cuisine, mix of classical European dishes with a touch of Asian cooking. Nice and helpful personal. Go there and get excellent “The Bishop” experience.

    Quality was very good, service also; however, after a four-course menu, we still were a bit hungry.

    The Bishop is a very nice restaurant in a historic building. The food is great, with also a very good vegetarian offering and good wines by the bottle and by the glass.

    Excellent restaurant. We had a reservation but ended up with a bit of a wait because the party before us were not leaving their table. The host was wonderful, entertaining us at the bar.

    The good: -The location and the inside of the restaurant are beautiful - the staff were all very friendly - the dessert (fondant) was so, so tasty - wine was okay The not-so-good: - incredibly noisy - food was distinctly average (dessert aside), only fish was quite good. The 'chefs choice' on the day were mussels, and they were disappointing. - probably worth taking (at least) 3 course meals: the mains on their own portion-wise are very small Conclusion: overpriced

    Had a special dinner with my family at The Bishop, asked for a special table ahead of time and it was all set up! Super ambiance, nice and knowledgable waitress, and above all the food! Presentation very nice, and food absolutely delicious! Not your average meal, always a nice surprise! I will be back!

    Excellent food and wine. Our only suggestion for improvement is to increase the pace. We waited 40-45 minutes between each course, which seems excessive even by casual European standards.

    This was one of the best dinning experience I had in Leiden. Other than the tasty food the service was top notch. The server actually was very knowledgeable and cared about our experience. This is usually hard to find in Leiden.

    Went for my friends birthday and it is always a great time! friendly staff and a chefs menu to die for! Of which they had made a special menu for my other half who is vegan. The wine pairing was also amazing! Highly HIGHLY recommend to anyone in Leiden.
