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.

There is no shortage of restaurants in Leiden, many of them good. But it was a pleasant surprise to discover this place. It is "themed" but in a unusual way - the walls are covered in warning signs from all over the world. The food and wine was great and also good value. The service was friendly and prompt. It...

This is the second time I've visited. Great value especially Sunday to Tuesday as they have a €29 three course menu offer. I'd dined inside on the previous visit. This time a friend and me were sat outside since the temperature was still in the high twenties in the evening. Tables outside go quickly in warmer weather, but there were... More

Had dinner here with a family of 4. The waiting staff was very friendly and the food was good. Especially the desserts in the special icecream cups were popular with our kids. On busy evenings, it can be a bit of a wait for the food, but the atmosphere is nice and friendly.

We went while visiting family in Leiden, there was a really great atmosphere and staff were friendly. They do a great deal on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday which we took advantage of. Food was really excellent, would definitely go back!

The name of this restaurant means "Entry Forbidden" or "Forbidden Access". I asked the waitress if this was a good name for a restaurant, but it did have a lot of customers! I had the special pork spare ribs. They were good with a variety of spices and good meat on the ribs. I was given a wet towel and... More

We went here with the kids because it came recommended. It turned out to be ok, but do not expect anything special here. The dishes on the menu sound better then they end up on the plate. The titles are all made up to resound the "theme" of the restaurant, which might be funny for those who mastered the dutch... More

It was a very busy night and we were with quite a big group. Therefore we could only choose from a certain selection on a special menu (very understandable seeing the busyness there). The original menu looked a lot better and I left a with a feeling I would have rather eaten something else. Maybe I will come back at... More
