Lovely restaurant with a nice front room in an old typical Dutch house. They have a wood over where they cook delicious oven roasted vegetables. They are specialized in meat which we do not eat, our tuna and salmon were a bit bland but very heathy. Chips were nice and chunky too. The wine by the glass was very little and the smoke of the smokers came inside through an open window right into us, however the owner saw this and closed it. Very friendly and quick service, very rare in the Netherlands.

The restaurant is close to the pedestrian shopping area of Katwijk. It is beautifully decorated and looks very cosy from the outside. Weâve been there on a Friday night around 7pm and would definitely recommend to book a table in advance, every table was occupied. We started off with some very nice, fresh bread with an olive tapenade and herb butter. After that we had 2 appetizers (tuna sashimi and prawns cocktail) and two mains (the grilled tuna and the salmon au gratin), along we ordered two craft beers from their quite extensive beer menu. The tuna in both dishes was of very good quality, the sauces accompanied it well. The prawns were fresh, but tastewise the dish offered nothing special, same with the salmon, which was quite heavily topped with a sauce hollandaise. Unfortunately the greens in the dish disappeared somewhat in the sauce. The waiter was quite taken with the two female guests on the next table, so our service came a bit short, but he was attentive enough not to complain anyway. The whole meal came to 90 EUR, which we found was slightly expensive for what we got.

I called and made a reservation... arrived n all was perfect.. nice table with highchair. Very efficient n friendly server, and fairly busy. We split a pancake (2 Ladies) which was perfect. Hubby had boeren (farmers) omelet which was good. Nice, cozy setting. Good location/middle of Leiden Plein/main square.

Very inviting place, quite cozy, lots of interesting details. The staff members are friendly and efficient. The house beer is excellent, my only complaint was I was driving so I could only have one! The menu had interesting choices. The dishes were tasty and well prepared.

We chose this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. Having read rather old reviews, we thought the â¬75 per person menu, matching wines to each dish would suit us. It is not our intention to insult the chef but only one dish was well prepared, The red wine served with it was a mismatch.We left thinking that there was neither flair in the cooking nor intuition when choosing wines to accompany the food.The lovely waitress repeated over and over her "set script" to the diners, who appeared to be tourists as we were. We thought it over priced and very pretentious to the point of discomfort.

This restaurant really lives up to its amazing reviews! The building itself is a period building with beautiful finishes. There is a stunning staircase going upstairs with a beautiful ceiling. We started with gin cocktails. The gin menu is extensive - They even divide it by sorts of gin - citrusy, fruity, classic - etc. I think that they have near on 40 different gin based cocktails. I had a monkey 47 - it was made to perfection.We did not have a starter as we decided to have one of the cowboy 1kg steaks with some side dishes. We have the Austrian Cowboy steak which was cooked perfectly to our taste. If you choose a cowboy steak you are presented with a range of knives to choose from - itâs so impressive. Our meal was outstanding - the meat was amazing and we had great sides including mixed veg and mushrooms. They served fries with the meal but we were not keen on filling ourselves with potato.We were too full for dessert so had some port.Service was great.Food was outstanding.Drinks menu is extensive and reasonable - we also had a bottle of wine and were surprised by how reasonable it was.They have water from their own spring so once youâve purchased your first bottle it is refilled at a reasonable cost. The restaurant is about 15 mins walk from Leiden station.

It was raining, and we arrived early. We were the only patrons in the establishment and the hosts allowed us to sit and wait until the restaurant opened for dinner. We were very happy and very touched that they allowed us to sit at a table with beverage (I had the beer, she had the wine) and unwind after a fun day museum hopping. The atmosphere is incredible relaxed and indulging. Our hosts were exceedingly gracious and offered to be top our beverages with the warning that they would be sitting to eat their dinner before the restaurant opened to serve the dinner menu. We were treated very well. The other patrons soon started to arrive, and we were not pushed, or hurried, or fussed over. Instead, we graciously waited on and served with genuine smiles, and heartfelt polite demeanor. The kitchen opened to serve dinner. We asked for the tuna sashimi, the smoked salmon, and the duck as appetizers. The salmon melted in our mouths, the tuna was fresh and so tender. The duck was was equally delicious.The rain continued outside, while we were happy and comforted by the hosts inside. We ordered our main course, I had the rabbit and was blown away by the succulent flavors that were exploding with every bite, leaving longing for more--a masterpiece by the chef! She had the sea bass which was light and delectable!Dessert for me is always the crÃ¨me brÃ»lÃ©e if itis on the menu. I was not disappointed, rich, yet soft, delicious, and savory. It makes you understand that this is what crÃ¨me brÃ»lÃ©e is supposed to taste, feel, consist, and achieve: a taste of heaven with every spoonful!The rain had stopped, and the night air was crisp, and fresh, and invigorating from the near sleep inducing comfort provided by our hosts. We practically closed the place along with our hosts and we were sad to leave, but it is a night we will always remember and be grateful to have been fortunate enough to have experienced the culinary magic and delightful atmosphere of De Jonker.Thank you to our wonderful hosts for an experience unmatched by others.

The entourage is already welcoming and tasteful. We arrived at a restaurant already full except for our table which was roomy and tastefully sparsely set. As part of our arrangement we had a set meal which was already very nice; we added another course while our host suggested some really lovely wines (by the glass) to accompany them all. Everything was really top notch, with great tastes from tuna done in several different ways, followed by Dutch venison in two ways and a great assorted dessert. Everything had the 'patina' of careful preparation and thought. A really enjoyable and unhurried experience.
