Description: Calla's is named after the flower 'Calla', the Greek word for beautiful. With its serene loveliness and unassuming character, the Calla is the perfect emblem for the restaurant.The flower's serene beauty also inspired the interior design. Against a background of white, ivory and cream, only the carpeting is a shade of orange coral. Materials used include linen and organza, slate, wood, chrome and glass.FG Stijl of Amsterdam did the interior design. Calla's is housed in what used to be a 19th-century commercial building somewhat reminiscent of a coach- house. On the ground floor is the chef's table, that affords a good view of the kitchen. A long brown table surrounded by high chairs, it accommodates up to eight guests for full meals or alternatively simply an aperitif.On the first floor is the restaurant in which one wall is lined with mirrors. Contact with the ground floor is created by recesses in the large square balustrade surrounding the stairs. Here too, much attention has been paid to detail: the bottles of mineral water are kept in a specially designed plexiglass cooler containing crushed ice.The result is an unassuming, chic interior with white and organic colour accents.

Warm welcome, beautiful location. Friendly staff, food was excellent. We received a gorgeous cake at the end to celebrate our anniversary and were given the rest when we left for at home!

Our visit at Calla‘s was certainly not easy to forget. The elegant interior and excellent service were of course as expected from a Michelin starred restaurant. The menu was presented and served flawlessly.

One extra thing to mention, Eventhough I loved our place upstair, the chef table was very inviting though.

Calla’s is a must go if you are in The Hague. The owner/chef is outdoing himself! I have been a regular, but since he arrived (together with Bianca-an excellent sommelier; she always gets me right; which is quite a challenge, I tell you) things have been gradually on the rise. They are more than ready for a second Michelin star (I would say: long overdue). Some three stars I have eaten where less good. Yesterday evening was nothing less than magical. We had the seven course (“Prestige”) menu. I normally like to order a la carte, but it looked fabulous ... and it was!!! I like the way they use the fresh herbs and vegetables from their own garden; it’s fresh, it’s crispy! And the balance is spot on! I was blown away by the first course (Dutch lobster and caviar). But if nothing else, go here for the sweetbread! You will never be the same! The fresh herbs ice cream was extraordinary. Wine is a big passion at Calla’s, with things you know and cherish and lots to discover (e.g. quite a bit of natural fermentation). Yes and last but not least: service is impeccable! A rare thing these days and, as the Fagels used to say, as important as the food!

It had been 17 years. Good to be back. Excellent food. Especially appreciate the flexibility of the staff to tailor the menu and the wine pairing to our wishes. We booked the chef's table and enjoyed the experience. The explanations of the chef on the food selection and preparation add to the understanding and appreciation of the tasting experience.
