All is well

We went as a couple on a wednesday. It was not too crowded, and as a result service was swift. A bit too swift for the setting, at times, but the boys were pleasant and well-informed. A 4 course meal with according wines is what we ordered. After two glasses of non-named Cremant d'Alsace and a nice... read more

The food at this restaurant was brilliant. We had seven courses, each was a masterpiece of flavors, presentation and delight. The wines were perfect, the service impeccable. We had the American Express dinner club special and so the price was very, very reasonable.

I stumbled on some reviews while looking for a nice place for dinner in Leiden - and I was not diasppointed at all. The place is nice and cosy. The fireplace was lit and gave even more atmosphere to the lean and classy inside. And then came the food. Good enough that my dutch company at the table helped me... More

The food (chef's surprise menu) deserves a star, fabulous, in balance, surprising. The staff seems relaxed, enthousiastic, know how to approach every table. Great sommelier, great wine. Great place. If you want to celebrate and don't mind spending a little money: go. I think it is one of the best places in town.

仲々、日本人好みのレストランに海外で 出合うことが少ないですが、 このレストランは凄い。 僕はロブスターの半分だけと デザートとしてチョコレートケーキをを注文したが、二つとも当たり。 特に 、ロブスターの付け合せの温野菜と冷野菜 が ソースとかコンソメの味とかが日本人に合う優しい味。 It's a great taste. I like warmed vegetables and cold vegetables that taste is suitable for Japanese. It's tender for me. I can't describe it. It's a most recommend restaurant.

I could not fault this restaurant. The staff were courteous, knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. The quality and presentation of the food was superb. I could not over emphasise the apparent imagination that must have gone into the menu choices both in terms of taste and visual impact of the food. I was lucky enough to be taken there for lunch,...

We are foodies from San Francisco who have high standards. We appreciate fresh ingredients, the use of unique ingredients and composition and presentation. We just happened upon IDD while walking in Leiden. We took a chance and we were blown away by our dining experience. I would have to say that from the hundreds of restaurants we have eaten at...

Wonderful food, great service, very nice atmosphere. A true treat and a perfect night out with friends. We had the 4 courses surprise dinner and every course was delicious! I loved the wine pairings and hope to come back soon!

The appetizers were as good as have ever eaten. Main dishes were very good but lost out a bit, sea bass was slightly over cooked. Wine list ranges from 30-to hundreds od euros, but the low end range is good. Overall dining experience superb.

The menu is limited by the food is excellent and well prepared. However the wine combination was very poor, which was a surprise as this restaurant claims to be a wine-tasting place.The place was very noisy with two tables of people keeping raising their voice and placing telephone calls... One of the table was probably occupied by some acquaintances of... More
