This restaurant is extraordinary. Small and elegant, with friendly relaxed staff and extraordinary food from a small but well constructed menu. We had a diabetic kosher guest in our group and the staff were really accommodating. Lovely treats between courses too.

If you have the time you must visit this restorant. The service is as good as the food and the food is great. They have from 3 to 8 dishes to select from, but I recommend to go for all 8.

We drove from The Hague to Leiden to have dinner at Dartel. It was a birthday celebration with four of us. The staff were well informed about the food menu and the wines. We chose to have the four course menu (up to 8 courses were available) and the accompanying wines. Couldn't fault the food or wine. I find that good restaurants in the Netherlands tend to overdo the "foam" element, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing! I would recommend this restaurant, and we will return. The town of Leiden is absolutely charming and our evening was perfect. Well done to chef and staff.

This is a lovely restaurant in a great location in Leiden. It is the best restaurant in Leiden (just ahead of In Den Garpenden Eter). The chef is enthusiastic and explains the menu to you at your table, giving you the choice of 3-7 courses and adjusting the portions accordingly. A different wine is offered with each course. The food is as good as any I've had and is better than many michelin starred restaurants I've eaten in before (e.g. The Square in London). All the food is seasonal and the service is excellent; you can tell that this is a restaurant where the staff know their stuff. Being a student in Leiden, I have been back here three times when my family have visited. Highly, highly recommended.

This restaurant was one of the best restaurants that we have been to in Europe. French Style dining with a Dutch flare. Excellent presentation and tremendous quality courses. What an amazing night!
