Very Good and High Quality Food - a Real Star

This restaurant has everything you want in my opinion. The menu is comprehensive but not overdone and offers something for everyone, the staff (owners) will happily explain and elaborate. Winelist is simply but good - both in taste as well as price. The food was well prepared and a great combination of tastes and flavors. The restaurant is located in... More

This place was just great! I was passing through The Hague on business and decided on the Kalf based on other TA reviews. The owner seated my herself and spoke wonderful english. I decided on the chef's tasting menu 35 euro and the accompanied wine paring for 21 euro. Not a cheap meal but excellent. The food was highly original... More

Visited for my birthday end of Jan, 2014. We made a reservation but since it was a Wednesday evening it was slow and not necessary. The location is nice, on the harbor. We sat by the window and had a lovely view of some docked boats. We both ordered the surprise 4 course menu with wine pairings, which is my... More

I had dinner here with a few friends end of December and nothing but compliments. Four course dinner with wine arrangement for 55 euro`s. The restaurant is located on the harbour which makes it has a really nice view as well. The food was stunning. The moment you walk in the restaurant you realise you entered a place where the...

We went on the Friday between Christmas and New Year. Parking on-site. Great view of the harbour. While it wasn't that busy we were made to feel like the only people in the restaurant. We had one pescatarian in the group and they were happy to adapt the menu to suit. Before we started they explained the menu in full... More

Very nice place to recommand. Quality of the dishes is excellent and they are served by a very friendly staff. The food is cooked in the middle of the restaurant. Very good price/quality ratio.

Small scale restaurant that focuses on the great quality of food and service that it delivers! Went with a group of four and all chose to go for the 3-course meal. Plates were arranged very nicely and the food just amazing. Atmosphere in the restaurant is just amazing. Quite intimate with the chefs working just right behind you. Also nice... More

Place where you go for special occasion, or to reward yourself. Great menu for people who love meat (especially red meat). I am, however a vegetarian. Even it is a meat restaurant I was offered a great meal with excellent wine match to every single meal. Service was excellent! Staff was happy to recommend beer, wine and food. We also... More

Went to Het Gouden kalf for lunch during a business trip to the hague, on the basis of the tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. We had the very reasonably priced lunch menu. The starter Langoustine salad was one of the best langoustine dishes I have ever had. The main course fish was excellent, although slightly under seasoned. Location and... More
