Great Experience

A great restaurant with a warm and friendly atmosphere and very helpful and friendly staff. Menu is not large around a half dozen or so starters, main courses and deserts. Were very good in helping my daughter who is on a gluten free diet and to be fair there was very little on the menu that was... read more

We went out for dinner here for the second time in about a years' time. The first time was great, so we had high expectations. We were not disappointed. The service was great as ever, very friendly staff who are quick to help and ask after any wishes during dinner. We took a 3 course menu for €29, which they... More

The ribs (and it bbq marinade!) are to die for. Best I've ever tasted in my life, really. The court theme is cute and the service staff is quick-witted and can be funny. However, the foid that comes out fr the kitchen is rather slow, to my opinion. Nevertheless, the wait was worth it.

"Verboden Toegang" literally means "No Trespassing", but stampede if you have to to get to this delightful restaurant where the food is outstanding, the service friendly and informed and the ambience - assuming that things "judicial" and rather quirky don't turn you off - is just right. There are set menus at reasonable prices and an extensive wine list. The... More

In our little city, at the intersection of the Keizerstraat and the idyllic Rapenburg you can find Artikel 461 Verboden Toegang. The restaurant has been well furnished, with ample space around the tables so it doesnt feel busy even if it's booked to the max. We had our aniversary diner here. Starter was very good, enjoyed the carpaccio. I had... More

This is a restaurant in Leiden that is well worth the visit : buzzing atmosphere, overseen by the husband and wife owner, outstanding cuisine at very reasonable prices. Dutch cuisine, meat well-sourced, perfectly cooked to order, good fish and vegetarian choices, excellent wine list, personally sourced by the owners. Overall, the ambience created is perfect : a mixed clientele of... More

It is now over a month since we visited this friendly restaurant. The atmosphere is fun, but unpretentious, and as the name suggests has an air of irreverence or defiance; typical Dutch! Theatre apart, this is a most enjoyable dining experience. The food is the main thing and it was good. The service was also excellent. Dishes are beautifully cooked... More

We got taken here by some friends who live near the town. What a great town it is with loads of history. Food was lovely , atmosphere was good. Service was OK but nothing special but was good for here. Would love to go back to the town and this reasturant.
