The first time I visited De Bok was in August 2015, and since then every visit to this restaurant is a special visit. The restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes, each one as delicious as the next, but if you are a burger fan like me, don't miss the Mississippi burger. I repeat.. DO NOT MISSISSIPPI BURGER! *A very... More

For breakfast we could choose delicious back bacon, sausages, eggs, black and white pudding, mushrooms, baked beans with toast. Some had the delectable Leg of Lamb just as like served back home. One of our friends commented she hadn't... More

It is four years since I last reviewed this culinary paradise, Café de Bok is a regular haunt of ours for nearly two decades usually around once a month and is our place of choice for special occasions. Food is freshly and deliciously cooked to order in such a homely atmosphere it sets one at ease. On Sundays breakfast or... More

We try very hard to visit De Bok at least once a month( don't review every time we visit) but as it's been awhile I thought I should let the trip advisor readers in on the secret. The menu is a variety of favourites from fish and chips,burger to pies. Great selection that is supplemented by whatever Gert and Robin... More

Have been here a few times,, always liked the place, yet had not returned for a couple of years, for no good reason. Attentive friendly service, tasty food, reasonable price and draught Guiness. Won't leave it so long till we return again.

I was there three times during the last weeks, and it was every time a great experience! All meals I tried were absolutely awesome. Great service and atmosphere make the whole place to my new favorite restaurant in Den Haag.

We found this place by accident on a smal street. It has a small entrance but the space inside is bigger. The lady owner was very nice. We had a burger and a steak. The burger was one of the best I ever had. The atmosphere was perfect with all the decorations and the background irish music. They have english... More

This place was recommended to me by a colleague last December 2015 and now I've been 3 times and introduced another colleague last week who enjoyed it too. In a small back street of The Hague "De Bok" (The Book because they also have a selection of 2nd hand books to purchase) is a quaint charming restaurant/bar to relax have... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in The Hague - the food is just consistently delicious and the hostess really makes you feel at home. I also really like the fact that most of the meat is free range and there are some great vegetarian options. Just writing this review is making me want to go there again!
