Bord'o has a simple menu that means they concentrate on getting the food just right. Excellent service that was also very friendly. Great place for a special dinner.

We had a very good 4 course menu, with lovely amuses, and everything looked beautiful and tasted great. Kind staff, highly recommended for a special evening out!

What a find! The food was so inventive and different and beautifully presented by attentive staff. Every course was a fresh surprise. Almost worth commuting from England to make it a regular treat!! Situated next to the water where you could have a river trip made for a memorable day.

This restaurant is wonderful. It's all about the food, wines and cheeses. It's relaxed, informal and offers great hospitality. They know their stuff and it shows. An inventive menu and a great and varied wine list. All in all, highly recommended. We keep coming back.

Bistro Bord'o is very delicious. There is an option to choose how many courses you would like, so my family and I chose 4 courses each and were not disappointed. I throughly enjoyed all of the courses and definitely suggest for fine dining to come here!

Had a 4 course "surprise" taster menu. The cooking and presentation of the food was stunning - real fine dining and surely not far below Michelin star standard. The wines offered with each course were very good, carefully chosen. The tasty Amuse-bouche were a pleasant surprise. Warning this is not fast food so allow lots of time for our meal.... More

Another good wine restaurant from 'Grootspraak'. The food (4-course menu) was well prepared, fresh ingredients, surprising amuses and presented beautifully. Service and wine advise was good. Matching wines (not the open house wines) were served with the courses, well explained why they matched with the meal. The prices are high of course, but looking at the quality of the food... More

Sat outside drinking our aperitifs, absolutely lovely little spot to enjoy the city of Leiden, the rays and some effervescence. We had the tasting menu and it had some delightful dishes. A lobster dish in a cucumber gazpacho, a beef dish with black garlic jus and a raspberry 5 different ways among the great plates this evening. Accompanying wines and... More
