Situated 300m from the main square in Delft on a wonderful terrace, this French-style eatery seems very popular with the locals, students in particular. Service is not fast but that did not bother us as there was plenty to observe and once you get your...More

Recommended by the hotel we were staying at. I don't think it was my best meal in the Netherlands trip, but it was good. The dessert was yummy.

An idiosyncratic restaurant, slightly off the beaten track, which was recommended to us by a delightful girl painting in the town square (she also happened to be a waitress). My tagine was pretty good but my wife's fillet steak was absolutely perfect. Friendly service, fair...More

Small restaurant inside, with large outside seating area. We sat inside at the lovely corner window table in front. Owner was very attentive, and all the service staff we dealt with were great. Menu and wine list were appealing, and reasonably priced. Excellent evening.

Located at one of the most charming little squares of Delft, LEF is an old time favourite of urban residents and students. At their terrace, it literately feels like being on the beach and during summer, it’s the perfect place for a late night drink or dinner. Old or young, student or tourist; here everyone gathers! Everybody does just come by and wait for a table at the nice bar. LEF only takes reservations for 6 or more persons.
