I like many restaurants in The Hague in The Netherlands. Below I listed my three favourite restaurants, all of which I visited several times since 2014. The Hague is a quiet city and seems homogenic due to it’s architecture. It feels friendly, and the option of easily getting to the sea is formidable. Food is generally cheap and of good quality. Under My Diary you’ll find a post about the best cheesemonger in The Netherlands, and really, this shop is winning the price year after year. Ed Boele is worth a visit to The Hague so why not try these restaurants as well. Enjoy your trip!
Restaurants in The Hague
Restaurant Calla’s is situated at Laan van Roos en Doorn 51A, a small street between Denneweg and Koninginnegracht. This restaurant was awarded a Michelin star in 2002. The chef Marcel van der Kleijn is in charge. It’s a little pricy. There is a wonderful ambience. The kitchen is classical French without the frills: delicious, light and beautiful to behold. Many vegetables and herbs come from their own biodynamic vegetable garden ‘Laantje Voorham’ in Wassenaar. The wine list is extremely varied. We had a menu on my birthday in 2017. Sunday and Monday closed. Open from 12-22 (noon-10PM).
This restaurant that serves small dishes based on the Asian and Mediterranean traditions. The address is Denneweg 130. It’s open all week from 17.30 (6.30 PM). Unfortunately the website is only in Dutch but you’ll find the menu in English though. Count on three dishes per person. I have been there several times and the ambience is informal and friendly. The staff is young and courteous. I find the place and the quality good although there have been small mistakes.
Restaurant Little V is situated at Rabbijn Maarsenplein 21, close to the main station. The atmosphere is rather vivid. The kitchen is Vietnamese, and both the food and the staff are excellent. Restaurateur Tan Do is driven by the idea to serve great food. You’ll find crispy coconut pancakes with fresh prawns, top quality stir-fried beef with Vietnamese basil or a traditional pho soup. The flavourful dishes served with fresh herbs are a true pleasure. Combine this with home made iced teas or exotic cocktails. Closed on Mondays.
