Good food and friendly service

As its name suggest, the restaurant/pub has many horse-related decorations. Warm bread was served with aromatic herbed and pesto butter, which made a great start to our meal. The escargot were great, its sauce was perfect for lapping up with bread. My main course was spareribs, which were nicely... read more

The staff in this place is superb. They make you feel welcome as soon as you enter. How different from many other places. The food is good. Not very special but what you expect. The speciality is a large list of very nice beers and a wine list that allows you to order every whine per glass. Per dish, a... More

In one of the streets of the shopping district you'll find this little retro looking bistro where it seems as if the 1990s are still alive and kicking. A couple of young but professional waitresses make for a warm welcome. Menu changes regularely but the selection of starters is something I'd recommend, a nice and pretty good selection of dishes....

We went her to eat one day, and the service was very good. The food was also great, and the two people working there (Lars and Eelco) did a great job. Worth a visit :)

It's a nice restaurant in the centre of Hoofddorp. The food is good, but too expensive for what served. I like the fact they announce the wine with each choice on the menu. It's best to a have a table at the window, on the 1st floor they have often big groups. It's also a cocktail bar.

I've been to The Paddock 3 or 4 times now and always chosen different things, I've never had a bad meal there. The Ribs are THE choice for big eaters, an enormous portion and excellently prepared. The staff are mostly young and cool, but depending on the time of arrival it can be 'slow' to recieve food. I put this... More

Afterwards i had the schol with - what i thought souonded good - banana/mango sauce -... More

Le Paddock is a nice small restaurant located on one of the back streets in Hoofddorp behind the shopping center. It has a very horse theme to it and inside is warm and cosy. The meals are large and very tasty and the prices are very reasonable for NL. This is our favorite place to eat in Hoofddorp and it... More
