I had Dinner at this wonderful cosy restaurant when I stayed nearby in a Hotel . I was recommended this restaurant by the Driver of the Hotel Shuttle. The food here is a menu which is not very usual for Dinner that I know (maybe in Netherlands ). I had a vegetarian dish and was perfectly prepared. My only observation... More

Summer time is the best.. the view is amazing. During the winter, better stay inside :) I guess it's not the best place to go to if you want real specials, but there is a lot of room for larger groups, and that's an asset

I had both lunch and dinner because of a business event closeby. Friendly service combined with a nice menu makes this restsurant worth a visit. During dinner, it was a bit warm in the restaurant. All in all I might return.

The food here is very nice. The menu is creative with plenty of fresh fish, thoughtfully created flavour combinations and well presented plates. However the service is inconsistent, ranging from absolutely excellent to downright sullen!

We arrived at the Airport Holiday Inn Express in the evening with big appetites, only to learn that the food choices were vending machines, pizza delivery or L'Hirondelle. Imagine our surprise when a short walk later through an industrial park we came upon this charming restaurant with a terrace overlooking a pond and with food, wine and service of high... More

Having booked a hotel in a pretty desolate area near Amsterdam airport, I feared for my chances on a decent meal. The hotel didn’t provide for anything. So, TripAdvisor to the rescue. L’Hirondelle was getting good reviews and on walking distance, so I decided to pay them a visit. The area is mainly (concrete) offices but the restaurant (with a... More

Every business traveler has asked the front desk for a nearby restaurant recommendation and with fingers crossed gave it a try. This place is one of the best recommendations of all time. With a cozy homelike feel and lots of locals, I felt right at home despite being 3000 miles away. Excellent food, well presented by a great table staff.... More

The setting and decor was very nice. The grilled chicken was chopped pieces of mostly dark meat including bits of chicken fat. The vegetable part of the salad was good, but I did not like the chicken. My fault for not checking to make sure it was a grilled chickent breast. The hamburger & fries were fine. Service was decent.
