“Friendly Service, Good Food, Fantastic Design”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Visited South of Houston on the recommendation of a friend and was AMAZED by the friendly and attentive service. This was service beyond what I've usually experienced in restaurants here in The Netherlands and the server (who I also think is one if the owners) regularly smiled, chatted and laughed with guests in the restaurant.

The food, while slightly more expensive than a regular meal out, was well worth every euro cent! I ordered the burger and will say, hands down, that it was the BEST BURGER I have had in a long time. This will be my new go-to place for a burger in The Hague.

My companion ordered the entrecôte and both were served with plump, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, skin on, well salted tasty frites. The side salad that came with the entrees was also delicious.

Two glasses of wine, the entrecôte and the burger totaled EUR 50.

We sat outside in the garden, which while pleasant on a nice evening, is not as nicely decorated as the restaurant interior.

This would be a great place to go with a friend or a group of friends.

GO VISIT! I hope this is one restaurant that stays around for a long time. I've found it a rare thing to have good service, good food and ok prices in The Netherlands and this place has it all!

“South of Houston - modern American gem downtown The Hague”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

If you area sucker for grilled steak and fish, pay a visit to this fairly new restaurant in The Hague. Portion are reasonably good, wine a bit overpriced in my opinion but they have a good selection so there is something for every budget.
They have a nice terrace in the back which is open the moment the weather allows it.

“Holland visit”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Good quality restaurant with friendly staff - busy so advise making a booking. The "cote du boeuf" was excellent and worth quite a long wait.

“The food and service where perfect”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

I Stumbled upon this resturant and I'm so glad I did atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming the food is the best I've eaten for a long time i really can't understand the previous reviews
But the only point I did agree with is that it is really hot in there on saying that it wouldn't stop me going back again
You can't please all the people all of the time

“Old School Bar with friendly service”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

This is traditional sort of Dutch bar that is actually becoming a bit of a rare site. Old wooden floors, the slight smell of beer from the night before.
Service is really friendly and the food is ok.
