“outstanding experience in Leiden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

I went to leiden for a medical symposium. I choose this restaurant by chance for a Monday night diner. Coming from a country with a nice tradition culinaire I used to go to good restaurant.
I was impressed by the quality of the food, the originality of the presentation and the kidness of the persons for a very good price. The ambiance was also nice, no too much sophisticated.
This restaurant has to be strongly recommended and followed carefully.

“Recently opened and hopefully here to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

Great bistro style food accompanied by an impressive selection of wines. Had dinner here a few times now and have been thoroughly impressed every time.

New kid on the block but the other bistro type restaurants better take them serious as they are definitely one of the best bistro type restaurants around.

“An exciting find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Wandering through the back streets of Leiden looking for something to eat, we happened on Bistro Bord'o. It was two weeks from its opening and quite quiet on a Wednesday evening. The menu was in Dutch but the waitress - as so often in Holland - spoke good English and was happy to explain what was in store for us. The starter which we both tried was the asparagus and cucumber which was light and divine: never had anything quite like it. It was followed by a duck dish which my partner enjoyed and home made pasta filled with a rich mushroom sauce. The deserts were a fantastic rhubarb artfully laid out with an aromatic ice cream for me and a good selection of Dutch cheeses for her.
The decor was modern and minimalist; the dishes were beautifully presented; the service while willing was not totally attentive.
I'd strongly recommend visiting this restaurant before it gets too well known.
