Excellent food and service

I came to the restaurant for a business purpose. Food was great, and also service was. Some of my friends asking some food restrictions (allergy, well-done meat etc) and the restaurant was happy to accommodating these requests.

in a delightful ambiance right in the heart of Leiden we had a fairly disappointing experience: a five course dinner of which two courses were sub-standard and the other three were mediocre. service was average. pity

Very traditional dutch atmosphere in a quiet central pedestrian street of Leiden. Food is not sophisticated but very tasty specially fish.

I have been here once only, but so far this is the best place I have eaten at in Leiden. Maybe I need to give Woods another try, but Prentenkabinet is better to my view. Generally food quality and Netherlands don't go well together. I almost gave up in eating out except going for a pizza. But this place manages... More

This upperclass restaurant is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the historic city of Leiden. The inside has a chique atmosphere and is nicely decorated. In the back there is a nice terrace where we enjoyed the menu gastronomique (a five course diner). Service was friendly, although explanation of the courses depended on the waiter. The food... More

We had a very nice and relaxing dinner in the patio at this restaurant. Located in the centre of Leiden, we were not expecting this quite garden surrounding. Food was very well prepared, nice portions. Wine fit the food nicely and service is attentive and not to present. Layout of the tables allowed you to be amongst others but still... More

We wanted a good lunch with friends in the heart of the Pieterkerk neighborhood and this place fitted the bill. We were lucky with the weather and had reserved a table on the terrace. It was already waiting for us with bread and butter. The atmosphere is pleasant with starched linen napkins and silver table wear. We chose a three... More

The restaurant accommodated our party of 13 in a delightful private room at the front of the building. They offered us a well chosen 4 course set menu which was a much better option than everyone choosing from the a la carte. The service was impeccable and food of a high standard. All in all a memorable evening.

We were taken to The Pretenkabinet restaurant in early March by friends who thought that an out of Amsterdam meal might be fun. As it turned out, it was an amazing experience. Leiden is and adorable university town, and this restaurant unique, from ringing the doorbell, to the delicious wine to start the evening and finally to the small room... More
