Great food, lovely ambiance, great service

We had a lovely family lunch on a weekday. Choose the set lunch which was very good. Since it was my mother in law's birthday, they brought out a cake at the end of the lunch which was a great surprise to her. The only thing was that we already had 2 desserts in the set menu and I could... read more

Coming here many years it always is a pleasure to dine here. Food is superb, staff is very good and knowledgable. It never ceases to amaze me that it is a really good restaurant but the ambiance is quite normal - no false pretenses as some top restaurants have. On the food side : "truffels" are their speciality and reason... More

Over the last several years my wife and I frequently visited restaurant de Hoefslag in Bosch en Duin located in the center of the Netherlands. Personally I consider this restaurant my favorite place to eat in this country. The ambiance and atmosphere are wonderful, the service impeccable and the quality and taste of their meals is perfect. The owner, Karl... More

We took our 13 year old granddaughter for dinner in the garden of bistro De Ruif. Nice setting for a warm evening, competent service, well prepared dishes. However, we were astonished- and more than a little put out- by the fact that we were charged 2 x €6 for 2 bottles of 'house (flat) water' , i.e. tap water that... More

De Hoefslag is a very exceptional Restaurant! Not only the atmosphere is very nice, absolutely professional service and the food is a dream. The way "Karl" and his team prepare the food on the dishes is a peace of art for itself. Whenever we visit family and friends in the Netherlands this is a MUST GO place. You should not... More

The site has a Bistro (De ruif) and a Restaurant (De Hoefslag), I would recommend both although they're in a different category. In both places you'll enjoy a good service, you can order some pretty (very) decent wines by the glass and the food is quality food. In the restaurant you'll find the more complex dishes (including Karl's truffle risotto,... More

Have been to De Hoefslag a couple of times now and it never disappoints. The staff are not only very friendly but incredibly knowledgeable about the dishes and wines. You have a choice of settings - a lovely outdoor terrace, private dining, formal indoor dining or less formal bistro restaurant with a different menu. The dishes are beautifully presented and...

Great interior, comfortable seats for dining for hours. Food was fine, high quality. Only the amuse based on broth tasted a bit like liver oil. The knives provided to cut the home made biscuits were to blunt to even cut into the butter. After we payed the bill, there was no one to say goodbye to us, which was a... More
