I rate this restaurant in the top 5 in Leiden. It is also a bit less expensive than other restaurants in the top category of French style food. Special complements for the very friendly service. The wine arrangement can be recommended. The wines are extremely good, e.g the dry moscat wine from the Alsace and the Greek red Gaia wine... More

Bistro Bord'o is hands down the best dining option in Leiden. Owned by a Chef and a Sommelier, you can clearly feel they fully understand how to deliver excellent customer service; the quality of the dishes can rival any Michelin starred restaurant whilst being unpretentious and affordable. The wines are expertly sourced and match the food beautifully. The restaurant has... More

This small restaurant in the very center of Leiden offers a good priced excellent dinner. Service very good, and adventurous food. Choice not great, but the kitchen is always prepared to meet your wishes.

We went here with family members for a special celebration. This is my sister’s favourite restaurant in Leiden, and she’s got excellent taste and will always go to the best (Michelin rated) restaurants. Therefore our expectations were rather high. We ordered the three-course set menu. The flavour of all dishes, from the amuse, starter to main course were original and... More

It was a fantastic lunch in a friendly and cosy atmosphere. Very clean well prepared, creative but not over the top. Good wine list also at start prices good bottles of smaller producers. We will be back!

My husband is in town on business and I am playing the tourist. We met for dinner and chose this Bistro based on trip advisor reviews. The food was excellent- prepared with creativity and care. We both chose a dish of cod and lamb shanks- both among the best we have eaten. For dessert we had their chocolate offering- wow!... More

Sensational in every way. A reasonably new restaurant apparently. Described by one of our company as the 2nd best he had eaten at. No 1 was Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles!! Had the menu with the recommended glass of wine with your chosen course. Staff were superb with service and explanation of the food and wines. And able to respond to... More

One of the best in town. Fantastic French food and friendly but professional service. Great value for (quite a bit of) money.

A very pleasant place to be with nice, helpful service and very good food and wine. We started with drinks and bread in the sun near the water and when it got chilly we went inside. Lovely!

We visited this restaurant on our last night in Leiden. We walked in on a Thursday night without reservations and were seated immediately, first outside along the canal, then inside when that turned a bit nippy. The service throughout was first rate. We each ordered a main dish, beef (côte de boeuf) for me and wild seabass for her. We... More
