We gathered at the restaurant for a company event. About 20 people. The restaurant itself is small so we almost filled the place. Nice and cozy, basic furnished, but definitely will remind you of a latine place. Good choices from the menu. Food is cooked on the order, moreover the fact we all ordered at the same time, didn't help the kitchen. We had to wait a bit for the starters, but the wait was worth. Service is proactive. After the initial delay the food started to arrive consistently. None of us have had particular complains or negative comments. Price is on the low medium range. Good value for money.
Pleasant experience.

Thank Massimo B

If we had read the reviews on TripAdvisor we probably would not have eaten at Mas O Menos. The 2 previous nights we had eaten splendidly at other Voorschooten restaurants (both in the top 3) and we wanted something simpler for the 3rd night. Sadly, our first choice, the Thai restaurant, was closed that Saturday, so we strolled around the foodie area of Voorschooten looking for options (and having a beer). It was early, the weather was very hot and it was the end of a school holiday, so tables were available everywhere. After inspecting all the menus on offer we ended up in Mas O Menos, a choice we did not come to regret.
We ate inside, the TripAdvisor picture gives a good impression of the simplicity of the place but tables were also available outside.
After (another) beer for me, my wife chose from the 3 course, €27.50, menu: empanadas, an Aberdeen Angus burger and crème brulee; I had from the a la carte menu, Serrano ham, costillar de cordero (grilled rack of lamb served with rosemary- red wine sauce) and profiteroles.
So what can I say? 9 dishes, well cooked, well presented and nicely served, accompanied by a very good Chilean wine. For us, pretty well perfect.
Expensive? Hardly. We had no auction voucher but our bill was well under what we had paid for similar amounts of food/drink at other places and less than we would have paid in other establishments along the street.
Quality? Main courses were standouts at any level of cooking! Everything else was very good. This is not a fine dining venue, but certainly on the night we were there, it succeeded in its own terms.
And I should add that the reviewer who wrote that “restaurant prices in the Netherlands are the highest in Europe” should try the whole of Scandinavia, Germany, Belgium (ouch), France and, dare I say it, the United Kingdom. Netherlands price/quality is on a par with or better than all of these.

over priced food with small portions, service is slow, seems young girls with no experience waiting on you, wife did not like it either. Definitely not be back, you do expect more from Voorschoten but it seems most of their restaurants are below par, pity theres no one to check on it.

I'll be honest. I would never select Mas o Menos voluntary, because the seating is cramped, the portions are small and the prices are high, following the Dutch restaurant tradition. Restaurant prices in the Netherlands are the highest in Europe. But restaurant Mas o Menos is active on the Internet Auction site "Vakantieveilingen"; it is possible to obtain a voucher here for dinner for two with approximately 45 % discount. With this discounted price and the drinks added, the resulting costs are just the right amount for the experience at Mas o Menos; things get better. You realize that the food is tasty, really not bad and the waiter is attentive and polite. The beer is cold and the pace is leisurely. Parking in the street is free after 18.00 hrs. With the Internet discount Mas o Menos is doable.

Very basic interior inside. Although small and cosy place for dinner.
Positive and helpful waitresses. Argentinian steaks are tasty and a bit cheaper than in other places.
