“Excellent and charming French bistro in The Hague”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of dining at Pastis. My husband and I love French bistro food and we sampled everything from oysters (Gillardeau of course) to frites in combination with a great wine arrangement. The admosphere is typical French bistro with multiple families, friends and also couples enjoying a special night out. We will be back on our next visit to The Hague!

“Great location terrible food”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Ordered the evening "special" and It couldn't have been more of a disappointment "Poulet au pot' was a white skinned Cornish chicken surrounded by soft overcooked white cauliflower and potato which was later drizzled with au jus, tasteless and extremely salty, no evidence of a herb in sight. The meat was so tough we couldn't cut it. When I pointed this out to the waitress she simply said " this is how it's supposed to be!'. Walked away hungry, would never consider going again!

“Pastis, another fine bistro in the center of The Hague !”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Ab-fab, even the name of the restaurant makes you feel as if in France...very pleasant staff and atmosphere with the right 'noise'....We didn't have a starter unless you call a 'Jus de tomate' and a nice Dutch Genever (very tasty with just one ice cube) that way. The card represents all the famous stuff you liked when you were in Paris. My friend had her self a delicious looking and tasting 'Limande de Sole' and I, since I'm a duck lover 'Le confit de Canard', amazingly crunchy and reddishly fleshy...We had the house wine, we always do because that wine is in our opinion a sort of visiting card from the owner, it was fine!!! The Crème brûllé was the finishing touch.

“French feeling in The Hague City”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

If you'd like to feel like you are in a French Cafe for a moment when you are in The Hague, The Nehterlands then i can recomend you this small, lively, great atmosphere Cafe/restaurant/bistro. Located in the centre of The Hague, small side street to Palace Noordeinde. Menu contais of real French dishces like, Coquille St.Jacques in a Pastis sauce for starters and the fantastic Confit de Canard as main course. Reservation is recomended as this is a popular place to be.
