my parents visited the place last week and were very pleased with the atmosphere and décor. The food was delicious!!!! The special course on the menu is the chicken with truffles and the special appetizer is the scallops with caviar!!!!!!They are very grateful to the owner (Alexander) for the service and they hope to visit the place again.

Let me first explain that although we are Italian we have lived a long time in Holland so our judgment is related to dutch cuisine and not italian. Having said this, I was hoping that a restaurant ranked No°10 out of 670 in Den Haag would have had something exclusive to offer, but this was not the case. We were... More

The food was good, not excellent. I had the signature dish but I failed to notice the "generous amount of chicken" that was mentioned in the previous comments as I had to order two desserts to get full (I'm pretty skinny and I can't eat that much usually) . The service was excellent though, you're always asked if everything is... More

I went there for a dinner on a fine sunday evening in the Hague where most of everything was closed. We followed the trip advisor application and ended up there without any reservation before hand. They offer menu for dinner. But we ordered a la carte. For the first course, I ordered Slightly seared tuna fish marinated with soy sauce,... More

We visited this restaurant during restaurant-week. After reading the reviews we were very excited to have dinner at this place because it seemed to match our prefefences. However, the good service and high quality dishes we expected, happened to be untrue. It looked like they could not handle their full restaurant, which is such a pity. The dishes were way... More

I had the "signature dish" Poulet Noir: Free range chicken stuffed with foie gras, mushrooms and truffle sauce, and it was very good indeed. It did take me a while to figure out that the foie gras was lying to one side, and for me it worked better to add a small portion of this to each bite, but that's... More

We visited this restaurant on Denneweg on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the staff friendly. We went for the 25 euro three course deal and all the courses were excellent. The house wine was also very good. Nice touch being given a complimentary glass of Limoncello with the bill.

The staff is very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent: tuna as entree, lamb as main dish were both of excellent quality and taste. The limoncello as a surprise at the end was great. As I had to drive I can't review the wine, but my colleagues said that even the simple house wine was good.

My hotel was next to the Plein in The Hague with lots of restaurants choices but to be honest I'd been disappointed with some of the restaurants so decided to walk the 10 minutes down the road to the Alexander. Well what a difference, great food, excellent, friendly and attentive service and affordable prices. It's often the little touches that... More
