We ate here on a regular basis. WHile we like most items on the menu, we usually went for the ribs. They have a bar and offer Seating both inside and outside where you can people watch the plein. Good food, good service, good atmosphere.

De Markiezen van Wassenaar

Reviewed By operalover939 - Toronto, Canada

We had the three-course menu surprise and were pleased. The food was well prepared and subtly flavoured, and the wines by the glass were very reasonably priced. I passed up dessert and had a glass of framboise instead. This was the only false note: the eau-de-vie was served at room temperature in a brandy snifter. Stll, dinner for four, with mineral water, six glasses of wine, and a couple of desserts, was under 200 euros, which is very reasonable.

Duinrell

Reviewed By annL1984 - Leamington Spa, United Kingdom

This was our third visit and we'll keep coming back! We always stay with Eurocamp and have booked both direct and via sun holidays etc, all have been the same apart from the cost.
This time was via a company called break free which is like a sun holiday promotion and we paid just £112 including return ferry for a family of 4 Mon to Fri in the easter holiday...what a bargain. We stayed in a 2 bed 2 bath vista this time which was lovely.
Check in was quick and easy again ( don't forget your passport photos for passes) and we were in mv03 just behind the bike hire.
Our accommodation was clean and had everything we needed. Vista's have heating too which is a nice bonus and not mentioned on line.
I only cooked once as we ate out but we had all we needed, the oven was slow though.
The site is brilliant with lots to do and we all love the theme park.
We ate at la place for the first time this time too and that was very good, I'd go again.
Another brilliant holiday and we can't wait to book again.

Flamingo Paradise

Reviewed By Elja D

Another favourite with locals in and around Wassenaar, Flamingo Paradise has been around for quite some time. There's a mix of asian kitchens. The Indonesian 'rijsttafel' is of course the most famous and it comes recommended.
You'll find old friends, families and business people here. Bit of an older crowd.

Waited for what felt like ages for our food to be served, it was very busy with only one waitress serving. Starters were nice, Flavours of the mains we're good but the meat wasn't of the best quality. Wine by the glass was nice.

Great pancake restaurant located close to Duinrell site. Inside is traditional but menu choice is huge with a few other options if you don't fancy pancakes. We all had savoury and these are very large but extremely tasty. Good value for money and friendly service

Ristorante Pizzeria La Scala

Reviewed By LeeH1706 - Cardiff, United Kingdom

I visited here for my birthday with my parents while we were staying in Duinrell. The food was absolutely gorgeous. The wine was very nice but it would have been cheaper to have bought the bottle as I ended up having a bottle's worth anyway. We are returning to Duinrell this summer and plan on returning to this restaurant for another meal.

Gezellige knusse bistro voor de lunch of diner in het historisch hart van leiden

Reviewed By NatashaEdwin - Leiden, The Netherlands

Been here before, situated in the city center of Leiden, in a nice ally with little boutiques, near the beautiful st Pieters church.
Hot and cold lunch menus. We ate a delicious typical Italian caprese salad, freshly made. And a aubergine/ eggplant salad. With freshly squeezed orange juice and good strong espresso. We'll come again!

Cosy atmosphere, nice creativity, beautiful plates and great food. Service was super nice but could be a tiny bit more professional. Will go back for sure if passing close to Leiden ! Thanks

Crabbetje

Reviewed By Scrapmate - London

We wanted to eat some seafood and also wanted to visit Leiden during our recent visit to Holland. A quick search of TA brought this restaurant up and it didn't fail to impress. It is a small place with an open kitchen and the chef produces everything himself with occasional help from an assistant. It was wonderful to see his methodical and skilled manner of working - none of the rushing around and shouting as you see in kitchens on TV. We discovered that the place has been running for 25 years and this showed in the friendly efficiency in the kitchen area and front of house. Sensing we would be in for an unexpected treat we opted for the 5 course chefs menu which changes according to what is available. We were presented with a selection of starters (the tuna tartare was a standout dish), a prawn dish, scallops, 3 fillets and dessert or cheese. Each item of seafood was cooked to perfection and accompanied by various puréed and foams. Wine is available by the glass which is great when only one of you drinks alcohol and enables you to select different wines for each course. The selection of desserts and cheeses was spot on as well. All-in-all this was a very pleasurable dining experience and I would highly recommend a visit. Due to the size of the place and the fact that there is only the one chef I would advise booking to avoid disappointment.
