We have eaten here many times over a long period (40 years!) and have never been disappointed. It's a lovely old building and the food and service remains consistently good.

This is a very good dutch restaurant in downtown. We booked the table through their webpage and got the last table available. Not sure if it was really our table, but never mind. Menu has a lot of options, although wine list is limited (but beer list has a lot of choices). Service was very good all night even being... More

If you want to try real Dutch cuisine then this is the place to go. Recommended by the staff at the Banks Mansion Hotel we went there to experience Dutch food and were not disappointed. Staff were really pleasant and the food excellent - well worth the visit!!

When rating a restaurant I wish there was a rating between 'Average' and 'Very Good', ie 'Good'. This is the rating that I would give Haesje Claes. The food was good sturdy Dutch Cuisine, traditionally served with plenty of flavour. The choice of wines by the glass were limited and the Shirez I had was not special. To start we... More

Excellent restaurant.Food, service and ambiance all top notch. The Stampot was excellent and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the salmon with lobster sauce, we must have similar tastes to Lloyd F The meal was not expensive and was the best we had in the Nertherlands apart from that in our Hotel. See restaurant Dream @ Golden Tulip Hotel.

I had the Stamppot of the day with 3 different meats and it was amazing! My sister had the beef stew and red cabbage. That cabbage was... More

We arrived 30 minutes early however we were promptly seated at the table they had reserved for us. The restaurant is located just around the corner from the Spui market and is... More

You must try to hearty pea soup with bacon etc. - superb and only Eur.5.95. My husband loved the liver and my friends and I really enjoyed the steak, which was excellent served with beautiful crispy chips. The bill was reasonable Eur.144 for 4, three courses, plus some drinks and coffee.

I was first attracted to this place because it does gluten free food. In fact it has a gluten free menu which is nearly the same as the normal one. So lots to choose from! The room layout gives the place a "homely" feel, though some might consider it "cosy" or even a bit claustrophobic. However, there is an outside... More
