A group of five, we almost walked past De Stadthouder, but then decided that we were hungry and sat down on the canalised terrace. The waitresses were friendly and fast. Funny enough, everyone from our group chose the biological burger, which turned out to be a good choice with delicious meat and crispy fries. All in all we had a... More

Enjoyed lunch here. It's a nice location overlooking the canal. We had toasties and a smoked salmon salad. All were fine but nothing special. Salad could have used more dressing. Coffees were good. Staff friendly. Overall good but nothing to make it stand out.

My girlfriend and I stumbled into De Stadthouder and were really hungry. Though I don't normally order hamburgers while abroad, I did this time. Well, I have to say that this might have been the best burger I've ever had. The patty was juicy and flavorful, and cooked to perfection. We really enjoyed our visit.

The nice boat deck was perfectly located in the sun. The market was moving past by. The girl helping us was very friendly and helped us promptly. Very nice place.

There are a couple of restaurant in Leiden that have a pontoon in the Rijn on which you can have a drink or lunch or dinner. This is one of the establishments. It is in a nice location and the sun reaches it for quite a while in the later afternoon. It is a joy to sit here, have a... More

The food is very tasty and well prepared. The ambience is nice, it was on a Tuesday evening not that crowded which is a good thing. The service is also good. Although we have to learn much more about customer service in the Netherlands, with only students working as waiters.

Thank Tom_Delft
