This is my second time at Den Gapenden Eter. The food is really great, although on the pricy side, but it's money well spent: great quality, great recipes. Really excellent. The wine list is also excellent. The only really annoying aspect is that the waiters keep interrupting your conversation to explain what you have in your plate, even if they have just explained it to you 5 minutes before and you've said ok, I'll have it. No, really: I was discussing rather important issues with my colleagues yesterday (and also the previous time) and there comes the waitress stepping in and saying SORRY, I want to tell you what you have in your plate. There was NO way to let them understand that they were disturbing us. Even ignoring them wasn't enough, they would still interrupt us all the time. And get dangerously close to the food with their hands when explaining what this or that was.
So if you are looking for good food: this is possibly the best food you'll get in Leiden. But if you are going to propose to your girlfriend don't go there, or you risk being interrupted at the crucial moment because the waitress can't wait to tell you that you have seabass in your plate.
