The three course dinner was good and tasty and the price/quality ratio excellent. However, we have a few comments: (1) the price of a small glass of prosecco is almost twice the price of a bottle of prosecco; (2) the ventilation in the open kitchen is not optimal: one smells the various courses that are prepaired (particularly fish) in the...

Entering this fantastic little restaurant, you walk past the kitchen and are warmly greeted by the chef. There is something great about meeting the person that us about to cook for you! :) Their menu is extensive, plus they have few daily specials that have definitely seduced us! The food is really good, the service super friendly, and the restaurant... More

Very nice small restaurant with an excellent menu. Food was good but prices were not low and waiter tried to push an extra in-between course which i would have assumed to be for free given the rest of the prices. Fine evening and suitable for business and pleasure

I first visited the Pijpenia about 12 years ago. Then, it was great. Now, it is still one of the great restaurants of Delft. The Pijpenia and Le Mariage are sister restaurants that share staff, and the kitchen to some extent. It works great. Both offer excellent quality food suitable for serious foodies, but both have completely different presentations and... More

This French restaurant has a great menu card and is reasonably priced. The name pijpenla refers to the setup of the restaurant. A pijpenla is a drawer to put your pipes in and as such is not very broad. This restaurant lacks space so you have to be okay with sitting practically next to your neighboring table. If you have...

We come here quite often and have never been let down, the food is very tasty and the service is always good. For example: when we had a certain dish and didn't find a suitable wine the waitress offered to open up a wine that usually only sells by the bottle and let us taste before we ordered 2 glasses....
