We have been regular customers at De Resident since our arrival in The Hague (in 1994!). The menu has evolved over the years but the restaurant's spare ribs - which draw us there at regular intervals - is still a staple. The restaurant is quite unusual with two different entrances and dining rooms located on the Denneweg and on the... More

We arrived, no bookig made and it looked packed. But they led us through the restaurant, through the kitchen into the other side of the restaurant! Packed, but we had a drink - instant service - and in half an hour were sitting down. They specialise in grilled food and the rib eye I had was one of the best... More

I specifically requested my burger medium well knowing lots of restaurants eat burgers raw like wild animals. It came out medium rare. Since it was delivered there was nothing I could do about it. They put sauce on it when I asked for no sauce. And the spare ribs were extremely dry. Ridiculous for the price they were charging. Not... More

Aye here tonight with a buddy from work, nice outdoor space and seating by the road and a warm welcome. The ribs had a great bite to them and lovely sauce, salad was tasty and nice fries. We seemed to be forgotten though and had to go inside to pay the bill, could have been a bit more attentive to... More

With some friends I wandered through the Denneweg, looking for a place to have dinner. De Resident looked very appealing with a tiny but full terrace and a beautiful red tent top showing the name of the restaurant. We decided to go inside in order to ask whether we could have dinner without any reservation. The hostess at the bar... More

I've been more than once and can recommend the ribs! The menu also has fish and other steaks for variation. Service has always been friendly and prompt but it can be very busy.

There's the main restaurant in the Denneweg and a more Dutch restaurant (ambience) down the side lane at the back. I had excellent calves liver and my wife had fish (sliptongen- Dutch sole). Both were very good. Dinner starts about 18:00 and there's a nice cafe (De la Gare) across the square for a quiet pre-dinner drink in plesant sunshine... More

We came here expecting great ribs and good service. The ribs were average at best (very tough). The salad was dreadful. The service was abrupt verging on rude. The prices are somewhat inflated for this type of restaurant. My son, who is a big rib fan, left half his ribs behind...... Given the competition (many places serve good ribs in... More

No, De Resident is certainly not the most refined restaurant in town but its spare ribs never disappoint! Tip: the restaurant has a terrace on the quite Nieuwe Schoolstraat ...

The last time we went to this restaurant was at least 20 years ago. At the time I considered the spare ribs the best I ever had. As such the expectations were very high. I have to admit that they are still the tastiest spare ribs I ever had. But not the best ribs. The meat however was a bit... More
