We really enjoyed the meal there. It's a small restaurant with only about 12-small tables and 3-people working. Set menu (no choice) but the food was tasty, well done and exceeded our expectations. Nice atmosphere with the service and place.

I had dinner at La Diva with a friend. There is no menu, you will get whatever the cook feels like, but they will ask you if there is anything you don't like or don't want to eat. The food was really good and portions are fine! We had the 4 course dinner, with salmon as appetizer, white fish as... More

La Diva is a wonderful small restaurant in the center of Leiden. There is no menu, you eat what the chef has chosen. We had a lovely venison menu for an extremely reasonable price. Make sure that you have plenty of time, as there is only one chef to take care of all tables; in our case this led to... More

Here you have excellent food for a nice price. There is no menu but dinner is freshly prepared every day. You can say what you don't like or allergies etc. It is a small restaurant for people who like a quiet but inspiring dinner.

Where here on a quiet night but the service felt cold while the food was good. Some (extra) attention & enthusiasm would be appreciated.

La Diva's concept is simple and effective; you have what the chef makes with his market's choice, and the menu differs daily. If you feel like being spoiled, take the wine menu as well, and just sit back and enjoy. I don't eat meat which wasn't a problem at all; they know their vegetarian cooking and it's up to the...

Although all the restaurants in Leiden seem to get more expensive, La Diva stays at a steady pace. The concept is simple: they have a 3-, 4- or 5-course menu at a set price with ingredients straight from the market, and if you like it can be accompanied by a wine- menu. We've been here several times, the new owners... More
