Had lunch here with friends. Friendly and efficient service, nice atmosphere, excellent food. First course a type of ham & shrimp bruschetta-on a thin wafer, next cod perfectly cooked garnished by tempura fried veggies. Dessert mango sorbet with a thin slice of mango tart. Would return.

This tiny restaurant at the heart of Delft's charming center definitely deserves a Michelin star. The food from the "amuse bouche" to any appetizer or mains is simply superb. The service, by the co-owners, is swift and gracious and the wine list quite extensive and selective.

Last year in April was my mums 70s birthday and I reserved a table for us at Le Vieux Jeanne. I did let them know the event and that I thought that a special birthday dessert would be nice. When we arrived and I said my name, the waitress immediately congratulated my mum and in good Dutch tradition myself with... More

Elegant French haute cuisine. The restaurant decor is a bit sparse and has a somewhat sterile feel about it which we found surprising for this type of restaurant. The food however was delicious. Lots of menu options, a la carte; prix fixe or surprise multi-course. We chose the multi- course surprise menu. From the amuse bouche to the assorted sweet... More

My wife and I celebrated our 40th anniversary last night at Le Vieux Jean. We had their 10th Anniversary Menu and it was extraordinary. It consisted of five courses each one perfectly - let me repeat - perfectly prepared. Venison, scallops, halibut, were each accompanied by a lovely sauce. The dessert for my wife was a confection of apples and... More

Super good food, well presented, friendly service. The only negative point; it is quite cold in the restaurant. Drink a little bit expensive for the quantity.

I took some colleagues here for dinner, in the private room upstairs. The service was spot-on, friendly, with great knowledge, and perfect timing for the interruptions. Food was impeccable, and the choice of accompanying wines superb. I will be back!
