Criminally tasty dishes and an extensive wine list
Only a stone’s throw away from the Hortus Botanicus, the observatory and the Pieterskerk in Leiden you will find our restaurant in the outer corner of the Rapenburg, one of the most beautiful canals in the Netherlands. The large sign ‘Verboden Toegang’ meaning ‘No Trespassing’ seems to want to stop you from entering, but whoever dares to pass the threshold won’t regret it. With a wink to all the rules and prohibitions that surround us, you can have a nice meal in a laid back atmosphere with a large choice of criminally tasty dishes. Our hearty staff and extensive wine list will make your evening a pleasurable one. Do you dare?

“This is surely a classic that we keep coming back to, if only because of the particularly fine and attentive yet unobtrusive service” .
“A nice restaurant with a special entourage. The three small buildings have been converted into a restaurant, but each building has its own atmosphere. And yet it is a whole. Some nice old details are well preserved and integrated into the whole”
“Delicious meal! The waiters are very attentive and know what they are selling. The penalty at the end wasn’t that bad. All in all, not a punishment to eat with you!” .
“Definitely recommended in Leiden! Very fine restaurant. Very friendly staff. From my reservation they remembered that it was a birthday-dinner and on my dessert plate they wrote congratulations in large letters of chocolate.”
“Nice and cozy restaurant. Also for children. Good food and friendly service. We’ve been coming here for years.” .
“Great food, friendly staff and a really nice atmosphere with all those funny themed signs on the walls and nice homey atmosphere with various platforms etc. One of my favorite restaurants in Leiden!”
