We found this restaurant on the advice of a front desk agent at our hotel. It was restuarnt week and they were offering a 3 course meal for 27 euros. It was one of the best meals we had on vacation in the Netherlands, so happy we went there.

Reserved a table for 4 guests for dinner on 29/08, 7pm. Received three(!) seperate e-mails confirming the reservation. Turned-up at 7.05pm, only to be told that there was no table reserved for us and that the restaurant was full. Major inconvenience, as I now had 2 business-guests that needed entertaining and dinner somewhere else! This is a pathetic way to... More

Airports always present a challenge, when looking for a good restaurant, within close proximity. L'Hirondelle, located near the Amsterdam airport is an exception. My choice of the daily fish special of mussels and clams was very fresh and tasty. The soup of the day was creamed spinach, which was also very good. Our choice of wine, was a local Netherlands...

If you arrive at the Hampton Inn with no transportation and you want to eat a meal, then you will probably end up at L'Hirondelle as it seems to be the only restaurant within walking distance. The walk itself if very pleasant and you pass a cute pastoral area. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and has a lovely view... More

We just got back from dining at this great little restaurant. A perfect setting on a pond with fountain. Each of the three waiters/waitresses were very attentative and efficient. The meals were wonderful with great combinations of flavours and therefore delicious and good wines to match each course. We were not rushed in any way and had ample time between... More

We ate here twice while staying at the Hampton Inn in Hoofddorp. It is an easy walk. Lovely outdoor seating by a pond. Insects were not a problem. The cod wrapped in ham was one of, if not the best, fish I have ever had. Actually had it twice and it was delicious both times. We stopped in the restaurant... More

What a gem! We walked to this place for lunch and then dinner! It was a treat to find such a nice place by the airport in the middle of a business park. Thank you for a wonderful place to end our trip in Europe.

Being the closest casual dining restaurant to some Hotels, it is in a lovely location overlooking a fountain & small lake. Very pleasant décor.
