I did visit the restaurant but had to walk away without a meal. Was bluntly given a menu and that’s it. The staff simply couldn’t care less about its customers. Luckily there are no shortage of restaurants in Leiden offering great customer service.

They served our one chicken separately into 2 plates (we're sharing one) and they charged us 3.5 euros more without informing us in advance. When I found out about it after paying the bill and asked them for the reason, the waitress was too timid...More

Another Leiden institution that does one thing and does it exceptionally well - half roast chicken! Simple and irresistible, goes well with the good frites and my suggestion is not to stray to far from these two - happiness guaranteed.

Had dinner here with a friend. Since we both like chicken very much we wanted to give it a try with some vouchers of vakantieveilingen (€ 23 for two). We loved it. Pleasant staff, a nice cosy restaurant. We had a three course dinner. Have...More
