No wonder they are the number one... ok, I haven't been in all restaurants in Leeuwarden, but it is really an espectacular experience you can have in Byus! We had the 4 1/2 course dinner and even my husband was full! The service was extremely friendly and explained you every single detail for each course! The combination with the wines... More

Beginning to end; food, wines and service, all adds up to an amazing experience. We went for the five course menu with the selected wines. Everyone who has come by our table were charming, a bit cheeky and they knew their stuff... introduced the wines properly, all dishes, everything... Really, definitely something to recommend. We came to Leeuwarden to celebrate... More

Loved this restaurant, from the barbecued pineapple amuse with a hint of pork, to the carefully constructed and delicious fish and meat dishes with fabulous sauces. Small servings with attention to detail. Really nice to see alternative soft drinks for the driver from Wostok - the ginger and tarragon was great! I wasn't driving so had the wine arrangement. Wonderful!... More

We looked on some restaurant sites and each time "By us" was mentionned as one of the best in Leeuwarden. You have the choice from 3 courses to 5 courses in the menu. The place is situated along a small canal (and about 150 meters from the Post Plaza hotel). Food was extremely good, service was top and above all... More

Nice small restaurant with excellent service. Staff takes time to make you feel comfortable. Good local dishes from local suppliers served in style. In a way it is the simplicity that makes it so good. Go for it!

With a small but versatile offering in three,four or five course cards, this Restaurant is special. The red perch first dish needed the herbs and textures around it as the fish is not really of memorable flavour. The Angus beef dish was very tasty and the beef very tender, again well presented with fabulous Frysh potatoes. The wine list was... More

I was looking for a chance to visit this restaurant for a while now. And today I finally made reservations for two co-workers and me. One of us came from Hamburg and I knew she has visited a lot of restaurants through the world. We started out with gazpacho from the house and a cranberry prosecco, very tasteful! We chose... More
