We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here - every dish was delicious and the service excellent. It was our third visit but we hadn't been for a year - we were pleased to see that our experience was just as great as the previous ones.

Again, a very good price-quality ratio. In a very pleasant atmosphere. Calm and relaxed, not to stiff. I like it here every time I visit the place. Maybe the best pick in Leiden.

Dear..., You got all the meat of the whole lobster, not just 4 bites... The fish had no seasoning of cilantro, in the whole dish not any cilantro was used... Our waiter was polite and certainly not arrogant at all.
