We live in Leiden but we had always just walked by this place wondering what it was. Finally, it was recommended to us as a nice place for special occasions, so we had a family dinner. It is a themed restaurant with 'Prohibited' signs from...More

I've been here several times, and they have never yet disappointed. The staff is friendly and the food is always good, diverse and interesting. The menu changes regularly. For larger groups (parties, conferences, etc.) they also offer nice three-course menus.
