Restaurant is close to Hampton Inn Schiphol Airport in Hoofddorp. It's an easy 5-10 min walk down a business park road or by a park and a canal. The restaurant has placed signs on lightposts from the front of the hotel to guide guests which made it easy to get there. I read in other reviews they offer a free... More

It was the only restaurant we found late at lunch time and it looked like it was quite expensive, but prices are good. We had the soup of the day, a complete dish and a drink for around 20€. Food is nice and the place and surrounding are excellent.

Between the business park--where our Hampton Inn hotel, near the airport, was located--and a residential area is this jewel on a canal. And it's an easy, five-minute walk from the hotel. It seems like it might have been an older home, but I was told it was designed to be a restaurant from the beginning. There's a reason they expanded... More

I only had a credit card and so had to pass by 4 restaurants which only took debit cards or cash. Even though the restaurant was closed, she seated me and served me a delicious ham and cheese sandwich with coffee. The friendliest restaurant with the best service on this trip.

On hearty meal of a thick pea soup then venison for main were just the right remedy for a dark winter evening. The seasonal and Dutch elements on the menu were a pleasant surprise as the name (or just the L') set my expectations to classical French and maybe a little stuffy. The atmosphere is relaxed and suitable for individual... More

I was disappointed that they did not serve dinner at their outside tables (only drinks). I had the set menu (3 courses). The food was artistically presented. Flavors were good, but very mild. Staff were very pleasant and the service was good. Lovely lake next to the restaurant, and nice park adjoining for a pre-dinner stroll.

Sat for just under 15 minutes without a menu... Reasonably priced food. Starter was a quite tasty Spinach soup - Tasty but could have been warmer. Main was Veal with very few vegetables in tow. I like beer but was somewhat was disappointed that the beer range was all Heineken brands - The Beer menu is a tad sterile -... More
