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.

Great range of food - well presented. Although my steak was a little chewy, the rest was great. The service was great fun - like not knowing the difference between pork and lamb, and also not wanting to tell us what was in the special dessert. However, dont get me wrong, this was part of the charm and fun at... More

If you have some time to spend at Schipol airport outside Amsterdam, there is a surprise waiting for you in the middle of "nowhere" only a few minutes drive away. This place is an absolute treat for the eye when you enter the main doir. I weather allows, the outdoor area is magnificent with a deck on a small lake... More

Closest restaurant to Holiday Inn and I didn't feel like walking far. Pretty interior opening out to a lovely patio next to a pond and fountain on the edge of a park. Friendly staff. Service was a bit, um, leisurely due to a big part of 50 occupying The place at once. Scallop appetizer, duck main course, dessert (brownie with... More

We were staying at the nearby Hampton Inn for a night and needed a place to eat. The concierge gave us a map of restaurants within walking distance. L'Hirondelle was the closest one that was open, so we decided to try it. The first thing to note is that signs helpfully direct you on your walk from the hotel. Much... More

Great outdoor seating by the water, food is Good and filling. I've eaten here many times, either business or a quick private lunch. I like it more during the day for lunch. Friendly staff. Good size portions.
