Classic building, and a bit of a classic restaurant. Consists of several rooms, very suitable for private parties and gives the restaurant an intimate feeling, even though being quiet big. Personolized service, a bit on the speedy side, professional at a distance, it never gets rally personal. Good foor, some dishes do not make it to the top. Fish a... More

I would suggest this restaurant if you are looking for some gastronomy in leiden (which is not easy to find as this is a town mainly for students and therefor with a budget). Nice set up (rather dutch), and good selection... The only disappointment is how slow the service is ... count about 3 hours from start to finish...

The Prentenkabinet restaurant in the heart of old Leiden is in an old Print Room, yet the wonderful old building has a great modern terrace at the rear and offers diners considerable comfort in the various atmospheric dining rooms. Attentive service, friendly and un-intrusive, provided a re-assuring experience for our lunchtime visit. We started with a 2013 Wairau River Sauvignon... More

I visited this restaurant as a part of boring business trip. This place made my day! Place is wonderful, service is great, meals are really tasty and wine list long and interesting. I spent delightful 4 hours here and enjoyed the atmosphere and food. I hope I will return soon.

A Dutch friend invited us to dine at Het Prentenkabinet, insisting that as "good American patriots" we needed to eat in view of Leiden's Pilgrim Memorial. It was a great suggestion. The restaurant is lovely - the multiple rooms make the dining experience quiet and intimate. The service was excellent, and was attentive without being intrusive or disruptive, especially considering... More

We've been to Leiden many times and went here on a recommendation from family. The setting itself was beautiful, you would be forgiven if the food was sub par. Thankfully this wasn't the case. The menu offers lots of choice including a 'surprise' menu which one of our party availed of. The waiters were charming, and nothing was too much... More

I sought Het Prentenkabinet based on prior reviews. The walk along the canal to the restaurant passes the house of Jan Steen and the church. The restaurant is clustered on Kloksteeg opposite a small garden of the church. Picture-perfect, the panels are wood and there are pictures of prior dignitaries on the wall. The observant staff gave me a historical... More

Great ambience, nice setting, service friendly and good if a little slow. We were a couple but they had two large groups in who got most of the attention. Food excellent. BUT check the bill as we were overcharged which we did not notice until too late to go back and query it.

We have visited this restaurant 2-3 times per year during the last 8 years. The food is always excellent, the service friendly and professional. Most of their menus, like the Gastronomical menu, offer a very good selection of tasty dishes, at a reasonable price. We will keep coming to this place, have never been disappointed !

Ate here with some colleagues and clients. The food was excellent, from appetizer to halibut main course to "surprise" dessert, and the presentation was also of a very high quality. The atmosphere was very charming as well (church outside has memorial plaque as it was the source of a large group of the voyageurs on the original Mayflower that sailed... More
