We had only a few hours because of the train timetable. So next time is already booked in November and the hotelstay aswell. Now this being the number one restaurant in Holland I had high expectations. Because the menu's had five to eight courses we safely picked the a la carte dishes. Starting with a tea of fermented red cabbage... More

The service was fantastic, our waiter and the sommelier hit the balance between casual and professional spot on. The meal was well paced, the ambience beautiful. As for the food it was very good overall, the highlights including sole, steak tartare and monkfish. Our main (but minor) complaint was the level of acidity through a number of dishes. A "comfort...

I visited here end Aug 2013 so a little late in writing the review!! Myself and a fellow chef that are interested in the Michelin scene decided to eat here and travelled from UK for dinner. Upon arrival, chef Boer knew exactly who we were as we had had some correspondence via twitter. We sat outside in the warm and... More

De Librije manages to balance excellent service with a friendly smile and a warm atmosphere, not an easy thing to do. However they do it so well that you instantly feel at home and ready to enjoy the meal, and what a meal. The tasting menu with wine was fantastic, simply first class. Thank you.

WOW! From the moment we got in there we knew this was going to be a great meal. The room is lovely, they only have a very small number of tables and they are spaced perfectly so that you are not too close to anyone else. We had a back corner table which was great. The staff are very lovely... More

I came for lunch with my brother and his spouse, and with my 11 yo son. The food was delicious, of course, but also inventive and daring. We were really impressed with the service. My son was treated so well - including that the chef accommodated his food requests - that he declared it a great experience (we were worried..).... More
