“Very enjoyable experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Found this place unexpectedly when looking for somewhere to eat. Old building with a bit of character, plenty of drink choice and a decent menu. The food didn't disappoint. The place was busy but service was fine, though I can imagine this place could get too busy at the weekend. But then maybe I'm too old and uncool.

“A good choice at the crowded and noisy Grote Markt area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This historical building is located in the heart of The Hague, in the middle of a very popular area, around the Grote Markt. When the sun starts to shine, from everywhere people come to his area, then it’s very crowded and noisy. The Boterwaag is one of the favorites of the people at my work and when we have to celebrate something, we go to the Boterwaag. The service is good and friendly, there is a good choice of wines and beers and you can always ask for snacks and tapas. Recommended, don’t expect a romantic place in the sun but you can have a nice look at the city around you.

“1700 anno 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Grand Café De Boterwaag is found in the city center of Den Haag and is an absolute beauty. You can spend your time here for a nice salsa evening on Wednesday. During daytime you can absolutely enjoy the menu for lunch and for diner. it has a fabulous magazine table where you can quitely read the newspaper. Staff is friendly and sometimes a bit exentric. A real laid back relaxing place to spend time.
