The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent. The explanations of the several dishes is polite. And of course the atmosphere is fine

The Het P. has amazing food and service! I mean the food is beyond good! Only thing was that there was too much time between courses.

The food is always great. The building itself belonged to the university, my favorite part is the room where they used to do medical exams and students could watch the practice from the first floor. In the summer the little garden is lovely. Staff is friendly. Wine list is great too.

This was a delightful dinner with a business group. We were hosted in a charming room with its own small bar and adequate space to mingle before being seated. Everything was delicious but the asparagus creme soup was especially delicious. Those who chose the crustacean bisque were similarly pleased.

I went with a group of 25 people and it was a very enjoyable evening. We had the 4 course dinner with two accompanying wines per course to ''guess'' which was the one that should compliment the dish. The service was efficient and knowledgeable and the food very tasty. Would recommend.

The six of us had a great dinner party at "het Prentenkabinet". A very nice five course dinner with nice wines. It included a champagne spoom and we really enjoyed it. I can recommend it for any occasion.

I came to the restaurant for a business purpose. Food was great, and also service was. Some of my friends asking some food restrictions (allergy, well-done meat etc) and the restaurant was happy to accommodating these requests.

in a delightful ambiance right in the heart of Leiden we had a fairly disappointing experience: a five course dinner of which two courses were sub-standard and the other three were mediocre. service was average. pity

Very traditional dutch atmosphere in a quiet central pedestrian street of Leiden. Food is not sophisticated but very tasty specially fish.

I have been here once only, but so far this is the best place I have eaten at in Leiden. Maybe I need to give Woods another try, but Prentenkabinet is better to my view. Generally food quality and Netherlands don't go well together. I almost gave up in eating out except going for a pizza. But this place manages... More
