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.

Good service. But the food could be better. The raw salmon was too marinated and tiny. The gambas were nice but with little side dish, though the rice was good. The terrace is nice in front of a water pound. The coffee with bonbon is of no interest. Nevertheless, the place is cosy with a large room inside and several... More

We ate at L’Hirondelle Restaurant two times (Saturday, Sept 27 & Sunday Sept 28) as we were staying in a nearby hotel. The first night the food was wonderful! One order was the plat du jour of zucchini soup, red snapper, and a great brownie with ice cream. The other order was tournedos and veggies. The beef was tender and... More
