Dinners in Delft, June 9 & 10, 2015
Posted by Lisa Hill on June 11, 2015
On our first night in Delft we dined with the tour group in a French restaurant called Le Vieux Jean.
We had a room upstairs to ourselves, and we started off with amusées in the room where the wines were stored. The highlight of this dinner was the guinea fowl served with small French turnips and tiny crispy potatoes. Le Vieux Jean is a very nice restaurant and we have no hesitation in recommending it.
Right next to our hotel is a terrific little cafe called Het Labyrint.
It’s not fine dining, but they do delicious toasties, the service is great and if you fancy a pre-dinner drink because the restaurant you want to go to isn’t open yet, you can also call in for a G&T or a shot of Laphroig. (No prizes for guessing who had which.)
But the highlight of our dinners in Delft and indeed of the Netherlands so far was the one we had at Restaurant De Prinsenkelder. It’s a French restaurant serving a choice of traditional and contemporary cuisine, and it’s splendid. Faultless friendly service, a terrific choice of wines, and the food was just perfect.
