Friendly atmosphere & good Dutch cooking

Picked this out because I always like to eat local food wherever I go. I wasn't disappointed here. Picking semi randomly from the Dutch menu I ended started with a 'small egg' salad (quail?) followed by a lamb ragout(?) with chips (mayo), surprisingly, potato wedges too, salad and a cabbage/smoked... read more

Another good meal at 't Nest, Cafe pleasantly located in an old building with a couple of Restaurant annexes close to the te Werve estate in Rijswijk. Veal liver with onions, bacon and apple expertly cooked, mixed grill with beef, pork and chicken well prepared with quality meat. Good garni with fried potatoes and french fries. Sauces a little bit... More

The location is great - very old building, a lot of history. Food is decently cooked, but the choice is limited. Also serves as a very decent pub, and it has a great garden in the back, and a nice terrace in front - great for summer evenings!

Pub/Restaurant in traditional Dutch style with the friendliest staff you can imagine. Terraces in front, at the side and in the rear give you a choice for sun or shade. The whole inn gives the impression that you would not be surprised to see a stagecoach stopping to take on passengers. Not too complicated a menu but it's altered regularly... More

The Nest is a long-standing Rijswijk landmark, where staff treat the regulars like friends or even family! The food is good, the ambience is great, and the music is comfortable. Definitely the place to be come football-season!

This is the combination of a Dutch cafe (Bruin cafe) with a restaurant in the back in a somewhat historic building (dated 1702). The food is solid Dutch restaurant food. I particularly enjoyed the liver, it is not that easy to get well prepared liver anymore in restaurants. But they also serve many other more mainstream dishes.

Located near the Te Werve park this Dutch restaurant ofters a real Dutch experience. The staff speak little, but enough, English and there are no English menus. Don't let that stop you. Every dish on the menu is great. The kabeljauw - cod - is wonderful and the ribs never fail to please. The restaurant is in the back of... More
