Nice place close to Rembrandt's birthplace and next to the Morspoort. The theme of he restaurant / bar is Soul. You will find it all over the place. We were here for lunch. I had a delicious chicken wrap and a great soup. I would certainly come back.

I went here after being told that there was a "Cajun/Creole/Soul food" spot in Leiden. I had the Cajun shrimp and the crab cakes and while inauthentic (sorry fellas, I'm a Cajun...and what you guys are doing is not how we cook our food), it was still REALLY REALLY REALLY good. The crab cakes, in particular, I would recommend to... More

Great place! I've been here a bunch and can definitely recommend it. Soulfood classics in tapas portions, friendly folks and decent prices. This is a great place for both a hearty meal or a 'terrasje pakken'

A classical gezellig eat place like there are many in Leiden. Situated on the Moorsport , one of the many beautiful sites of Leiden. The food is just Ok and too expensive for what it is. There are many better value for money in Leiden.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel, and it did not disappoint. It is conveniently located at the edge of the old city quarter (parking is near). It serves soul food - ribs, corn, mash potatoes, etc. The waiter told us that the food is a bit heavy and therefore the dishes are intentionally small, so it is recommended to... More

Hi Oleg, Thanks for the review. Indeed our food is a bit heavy, luckily you didn't order too much. We can take care our service, but nice to hear the atmosphere was great enough you didn't mind! Hope to see you again one time, when you're in Leiden. Team De la Soul More

We visited on a sunny day and sat outside on the terrace. Service was somewhat slow but otherwise polite and helpful (it was quite busy). The menu consists of smaller size portions of American southern type food which can be mixed & matched. The waiter suggested taking 2 to 3 selections per person. Two each is probably enough for most... More

It is a cosy restaurant in a pleasant part of the city, with a view on the Mors port. It has a large terrace. Food is of good quality at reasonable prices.

Lunch or dinner, the food is lovely, the homemade ice tea refreshing and the cocktails a treat. For dinner you can choose between different dishes that are smaller in size, which will give you the opportunity to try at least two main courses. The ribs, the fried chicken, the coleslaw and the gumbo are our favourites. Whenever we want to... More
