The service and the quality of food was good, but the portions were tiny and not worth the money paid. So we stayed hungry in the end of our lunch. Plus we paid 6.75 EUR for a bottle of water that is usually provided for...More

The restaurant has its own parking which is convenient. It offers a "small portions" menu were you can choose 4 dishes for starters and main (or how many you like), finishing with one desert. It all tasted very nice, wine was good as well. In...More

After our disastrous experience in Noordwijk (see my review of the Hotel d'Oranje), I needed to take my mother somewhere new. This was perfect. Beautiful setting on the outskirts of Leiden next to the Oude Rijn and the Noordman wood and wine businesses and their...More
