During the past month, after a long absence, I have eaten four times at La Diva: one family celebration, twice a quick solo meal, and finally a celebratory encounter with a visiting colleague. The Table d'hôte was each time agreeable and the proffered wines very well matched indeed, while the digestifs show an exceptional price/quality ratio: generous measures of aged Cognac, aged Calvados, and a fine Marc de Bourgogne can all be had for under € 10:-.
La Diva remains my favourite Leiden restaurant.

We had dinner in 3 excellent restaurants in Leiden over a short weekend visit but this was definitely the best. One star guide Michelin food and pleasant and friendly service from la patronne? The cuisine was inventive and the presentation on the plate impeccable. The interior of the restaurant is discreet but fulfills its objective: concentrate on a real adventure in cooking. Congrats to the chef!

A five-course dinner for seven people; many dietary restrictions. Yet all five courses came out excellent, with surprising and very pleasant combinations of ingredients. The wine pairings were spectacular. Very good service. In short, a wonderful experience.

We were there for boxing day to celebrate a very special birthday so I was determined to find something really great. There were not a lot of restaurants open and this seemed the best one. At first, I was a bit disappointed by the place as it looked quite simple. The feeling did not last. We had a surprise five-course dinner with the appropriate matching wines. The food was excellent (and being French, I have high standards), the staff was really friendly and they knew their food and wine well. It was a really memorable experience. Of course, the price was also quite high but it was worth it.
