Have been here a few times,, always liked the place, yet had not returned for a couple of years, for no good reason. Attentive friendly service, tasty food, reasonable price and draught Guiness. Won't leave it so long till we return again.

I was there three times during the last weeks, and it was every time a great experience! All meals I tried were absolutely awesome. Great service and atmosphere make the whole place to my new favorite restaurant in Den Haag.

We found this place by accident on a smal street. It has a small entrance but the space inside is bigger. The lady owner was very nice. We had a burger and a steak. The burger was one of the best I ever had. The atmosphere was perfect with all the decorations and the background irish music. They have english... More

This place was recommended to me by a colleague last December 2015 and now I've been 3 times and introduced another colleague last week who enjoyed it too. In a small back street of The Hague "De Bok" (The Book because they also have a selection of 2nd hand books to purchase) is a quaint charming restaurant/bar to relax have... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in The Hague - the food is just consistently delicious and the hostess really makes you feel at home. I also really like the fact that most of the meat is free range and there are some great vegetarian options. Just writing this review is making me want to go there again!

We ate here twice now for brunch and it has been always good! Good food and the owner was super friendly to us! Good idea if you want a heavy, healthy brunch!

This place is not just a meal... it's an experience! This place has made its mark over the past 30+ years mostly via word-of-mouth. You leave feeling so happy because everything was just great. We were window shopping for dinner today and stumbled across this one. The daily specials looked good, and the atmosphere inside was just so different than... More
