This restaurant is situated in the centre of Leiden on the nicest canal of Leiden with a very big terrace. Inside the restaurant the atmosphere is very informel and cosy. The food is very good and the prices are very reasonable. I eated here already many times. Many young people, but also the older... read more

With 7 friends we were looking for a place to sit and eat. At the beginning the staff made us feel like uninvited guests. So we turned back and started to going outside while lady from the counter asked us to stay and said that they will arrange a seat for us. They asked other people if they can change... More

We were not happy with the service at all. We ordered a specific beer without alcohol and we were brought another brand which was more expensive. When our food came it was not what we actually had ordered! And finally when we wanted to pay they said we could not use our debit card because the machine did not work.... More

We didn't eat here but just went for cocktails. They have a nice selection for reasonable prices. The staff ruined the experience unfortunately by being very difficult when taking our order. We asked for a substitiution in one of the shots and they acted like we were asking them to move a mountain. If you don't want to do it... More

While the food is excellent the service is horribly slow. We had lunch here on a Sunday and it took far too long for every aspect of the meal's service. It's a pity, as the food itself is very good quality. They've got a reasonable selection of Belgian beers and the cuisine is Dutch.

We are living in Leiden, so we visit this place from time to time, when we are looking for a safe option. Sandwiches, salads or warm dishes - everything is tasty here! In summer you should try sitting outside, on the boat. But the atmosphere inside is also pleasant!

Great location at the centre of Leiden and funky interior. Nice food; De Stadthouder Salad is highly recommended. Very different from ordinary salads in generous portions. The large one can be a main meal. Cocktails are also interesting. Reasonable prices.

A quaint old building that stretches back a long way and has an elevated platform at the back, as well as outside seating gives you plenty of choices (and people can, and do, move if the weather changes). The menu is available online at their website. Plenty of choices - I had mushrooms with a gratin topping, salmon with a... More

I have never been there for dinner, but the lunch is excellent. Good sandwiches and soups--especially the pumpkin soup. Nice place for a beer or a borrel. A comfortable old Dutch environment with a friendly staff.

This place is fantastic for lunch. They offer a variety of specialty sandwiches for 7-10 euro, and they are delicious. In general, their lunch menu is inexpensive and the best I've found so far in Leiden while living here. They also offer some interesting tapas for lunch and dinner that are tasty but a bit more pricey. You definitely cannot... More
