The food is just fine but not very special. Atmosphere is not so bad.

“Great food worth waiting for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

I've been to The Paddock 3 or 4 times now and always chosen different things, I've never had a bad meal there. The Ribs are THE choice for big eaters, an enormous portion and excellently prepared. The staff are mostly young and cool, but depending on the time of arrival it can be 'slow' to recieve food. I put this down to food preparation (not just warming it up) but it can be a pain if you don't have all night. The place is generally busy early (always a good sign). Stay off the strong beer as if you get a long wait it could ruin it for you!

“Bad experince”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2011

We went to le paddock for dinner. The first impression was good, everything looked clean and neat.

My husband had the tomato soup but wasn't impressed - it was too heavy due to the cheese in it. i had the carpaccio which wasn't spectacular. Afterwards i had the schol with - what i thought souonded good - banana/mango sauce - unfortunately the sauce was covering the fish. The sauce would have been nice in a smaller amount. Along with the messy fish, there was steamed veggies, pasta and coleslaw a strange combination i think. Unfortuntately the waiter didn't stop by to ask how the food was - i would have told him that it was horrible. My husband did enjoy his spareribs, so at least that dish was good.

After dinner the waiter did actually ask how the food was (!) i told him that it sauce was horrible and didn't fit to the fish. He replied : "you chose it yourself!". Actually i did chose it myself, and it was a bad choice.

At least eaiting at le paddock was a very bad choice. Never again.

The prices was normal to high, so we did expect to get good food, unfortunately i can't recommend this restaurant.

“nice atmosphere, big meals, good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2009

Le Paddock is a nice small restaurant located on one of the back streets in Hoofddorp behind the shopping center. It has a very horse theme to it and inside is warm and cosy. The meals are large and very tasty and the prices are very reasonable for NL. This is our favorite place to eat in Hoofddorp and it seems to be often full, so make a booking.
