Amuse and starter (tartar) delicious. Main course was lamb for me: presentation boring and taste dry. Side dishes common for all of us: loaf which I hate and rissotto. The risotto had a promising texture but tasted like white boiled rice Service was slow and...More

We had dinner at De Engelenbak during our April 2017 trip to Amsterdam & Leiden. (We'd made a reservation in advance after a little web searching, by calling from our hotel.) The atmosphere is cozy & comfortable. We ordered from the Theater Menu - which...More

A repeat visit confirmed my previous experience which is the food here is excellent. The cosy interior is warm and inviting. The service is kind but the dishes come quite slowly from the kitchen. Expect the 5 course selection to take about 3 hours even...More

Love the staff here, very friendly and they know about their food. Can recommend you good wine too. Very good place to have a lovely dinner, it can be a bit noisy inside though. Maybe not great for little children.

I'm continually amazed at how good the food scene has gotten in Leiden. This is a wonderful neighbourhood restaurant that combines refined cooking with relaxed drinking. Would eat here every week if I lived in Leiden.

Brasserie De Engelenbak didn't use to have a great reputation. So when I returned to Leiden after a thirty-years' absence, I didn't think to pay it a visit straight-away. I couldn't have been more wrong! I now deplore every occasion I skipped eating there over...More
