“Very elegant bistro with great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

A classic in the area. The bistro is attached to the famous De Hoefslag restaurant. The restaurant is a place for serious people or events, the bistro is perfect for intimate dining for a better price. The food is always fresh and superbly cooked, the wine list is excellent, if you ant to go to and over the top you just ask for the Restaurant's wine list and go ahead and indulge yourself. But is is not necessary, at all. The staff is courteous with the right kind if flair, they know what they are doing and love doing it. Nothing more to add, De Ruif is a sure bet for a great evening with good food and ditto drinks. If you want to have some more privacy you reserve a table in the lower area, perfect spot for lovers or discretion.
