Were there with family for lunch, staff friendly quick to take drinks order and once we had all made a choice quick to take order. The meals themselves were also excellent, a sure recommend

OMG!! Annie's used to be such a good bar with great atmosphere and lots of fun while having a reasonable menu. Someone thought it was be a great idea to turn Annie's into an American style dinner and I have to say it is awful. The place has lost all of it character and the staff seem to of gone... More

We were sightseeing in Leiden and chose to dine here on the account of its location under the main shopping precinct, with seating out onto the water. Its cave-like interior was pretty cool and they have a very diverse menu. The food was delicious and the service was good. Check this place out if you're passing through Leiden!

Was there on a dinner out in November. The location is lovely, it should be beautiful in the summer, overlooking the canal. Food was good, I had an excelent tuna tataki. Beer selection is good

Beautiful setting on the canal. We went in October when it was starting to get chilly, but they had heaters for the seating area to keep you warm. Normal range of drinks offered at a decent price.

It was a slow Sunday evening with most people just having drinks. We sat to order. The outside was only about 40% occupied. We finally were asked for drinks but it took multiple tries to get our dinner ordered. The steak arrived medium rare not the medium where we had reinforced level of cooking. It was returned but still not... More

Sunny Saturday and very crowded. Positive aspects are the friendly stuff and the quick service. It may take some time before finding a place (we were 4), but it is worth as the location is great and again, service is more than good. Not 5* just because it felt a bit like being sardines in a can, but again, it... More

Dear fellow travelers, When visiting the medieval city of Leiden a visit to this restaurant is a must. The service is excellent and quick. The food is great and the location is beautiful. Not only on the outside this restaurant is unique, but also the interior is something special. Enjoy and be sure to also visit the Burcht of Leiden... More

My wife and I had lunch here on a sunny Sunday afternoon. We were looking for something quiet and 'gezellig' by the canals. After searching for a while we decided to go with Annie's mostly for its location and menu. The service was friendly and prompt but the food/drink left much to be desired. My wife ordered an espresso which... More
