Jewel of the Hague

Restaurant Alexander is simply delightful. You really should take the extra few steps down Denneweg to try it. Special atmosphere, terrific food. Really terrific. And great service. We (a family of three from the US) had a meal with great wine that was as good as the very best dinner we’ve had in the Netherlands – and for half what I think it was worth. Just around the corner from Hotel Des Indes, and a must-visit if you are in this area.  tripadvisor Restaurant-Alexander Den Haag

 

“amazing experience”

my parents visited the place last week and were very pleased with the atmosphere and décor. The food was delicious!!!! The special course on the menu is the chicken with truffles and the special appetizer is the scallops with caviar!!!!!! They are very grateful to the owner (Alexander) for the service and they hope to visit the place again. TripAdvisor
“Delicious food, warm service!” tripadvisor Restaurant-Alexander Den Haag

  • I have been to Alexander a number of times over the past two years, and the food never disappoints! It’s one of the few places I can go where I consistently get good value for money. The wait staff are incredibly accommodating and friendly–they are happy to track down gluten-free bread and are well-versed on the menu and wine list. It’s a great place for a quiet, relaxed dinner with friends and family–a small and intimate restaurant with high-quality food without the snobbery.    Bon appetit!

 

“Perfect service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed
The staff is very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent: tuna as entree, lamb as main dish were both of excellent quality and taste. The limoncello as a surprise at the end was great. As I had to drive I can’t review the wine, but my colleagues said that even the simple house wine was good. tripadvisor

“Simply “superb””
5 of 5 stars Reviewed
I went there for a dinner on a fine sunday evening in the Hague where most of everything was closed. We followed the trip advisor application and ended up there without any reservation before hand.

They offer menu for dinner. But we ordered a la carte. For the first course, I ordered
Slightly seared tuna fish marinated with soy sauce, sesame and poppy seeds. While my friend decided to go for seared scallops.

For main course, we had the following: Fillet of beef Rossini served with foie gras, truffle and Périgueux sauce (24.5 euros) and Rack of lamb with ratatouille and red wine rosemary sauce (24.5 euros)

The main dishes were served with potatoes which was very well cooked.

And we ordered a mix truffle ice-cream to share (8.50

euros).
We didn’t drink. And we ended up paying 46 euros each. But it worth every penny. The service was very good.

On another note, the bread which was served in the restaurant was freshly made. It was warm and it came with pesto butter and sth which is like a mix of olives. Very tasty.

They also offer free wifi and the waitresses speak very good english.
Worth to try if you are in The Hague. tripadvisor

I visited this restaurant twice and each time the food was excellent. Fresh, tasty and absolutely delicious. Fixed price 3 course menu 25 euro, house wine of good quality Would recommend it anytime and to everyone. In fact my colleagues loved it too, which makes it an ideal spot for a business dinner.

Very accommodating staff, and great food!

We made a last minute reservation here …- a lovely and rare gesture compared to many restaurants
in the Netherlands. Atmosphere was cosy, with mixed international staff which was refreshing,
the tortellini was fantastic, and we’d definitely come back again! Prices were decent considering
the portions and quality of the food. Perhaps what left the best impression on us
was chef Alexander’s charm – he went out of his way to make sure we were happy
and he seemed to be interacting with everyone at the restaurant! Highly recommended. TripAdvisor

The staff was very friendly, welcoming and available for any requirements we had. The varity of food in the Buffet was delicious and good balanced to any personal wishes (Vegeterian, Meet, Fish & Chicken)
We had a very cosy and joyful evening, with a sure returning clients. Iens.nl

 

Well worth the walk”
5 of 5 stars
My hotel was next to the Plein in The Hague with lots of restaurants choices but to be honest I’d been disappointed with some of the restaurants so decided to walk the 10 minutes down the road to the Alexander.
Well what a difference, great food, excellent, friendly and attentive service and affordable prices. It’s often the little touches that make the difference, like seeing you are on your own and not putting you in the centre of the restaurant, or offering you a complementary drink at the end of the meal. I can see why it is rated so highly and justly so. The set menu is great value and the chicken was superb. I had the Crepe Suzette to finish and it was just as it should be. tripadvisor Restaurant-Alexander Den Haag

Good restaurants for me are not about having huge menus but more about doing a few dishes really well and this definitely falls in to that category. I’ll no doubt be dropping in again. tripadvisor

 

“This Local Was Impressed”
Prix fixe menu at 27 euro each was an excellent value. Inventive, good tasting, quality ingredients and excellent service made for a very nice evening. Favorites were beef main course and killer desserts. Servers were attentive, encouraged us to taste three different wines (we settled on the server’s recommendation), and were helpful with descriptions and our questions. Nice, cozy atmosphere that is subtle and allows the food to be the star of the show. I recommend, not because they are ever going to win a Michelin star, but because the food, service, atmosphere and location are perfect for date night or taking visitors out for a nice dinner. We were impressed.

  • Excellent price/quality and service

I was visiting a friend and he saved this restaurant for dinner on our last night, calling it his favorite spot in all of The Hague. The restaurant is classy and upscale but was vague regarding its specialties. Thankfully, the menu was small enough such that one would expect every item to be exceptional.

After just having spent a few days in Paris, we were wary about ordering the meat & cheese platter but found it to be just as good if not better than some of the spots in Paris where we ordered some combination for essentially every meal. The steak was done perfectly with beautiful accompaniments. Dessert was lit on fire in front of us and was both unique and delicious. The wine was great.

Entree pricing was the most consistent I have ever seen in a restaurant, the a la carte selections all being the same at 25 euros (not to imply this is a good or bad thing). The service was the hallmark as it was speedy and thoughtful when needed but was mostly relaxed. We found ourselves seldom brashly interrupted. I can’t imagine the prices were near what would be considered expensive for the area. yelp restaurant Alexander Den Haag

“Very enjoyable evening”

We had the opportunity to host another couple atbthis retaurant last night. I must say it has become one of my new favourites in the Hague. The food was excellant, the service was terrific and the prices are quite reasonable for the quality provided.
I had two house specialties and both were excellant. Well prepared and expertly plated and served.
I will definitely come back again next time we are in the Hague. Tripadvisor

We made a dinner reservation after the recommendation of a friend. The service was really great and the menu and wine selection were very good. Though we made an attempt to refrain from filling up on bread, the two spreads (basil/parsley butter and olive tapenade) were too good to give up and we finished the entire basket! We had two starters (the tuna with sesame seeds was especially delightful!) and shared two different main meals. Everything we had was excellent and tasty. We did not have room for dessert but we can imagine it’s great too. Hopefully will try it next time!

This is a brilliant restaurant.
The food was delicious and elegant, the staff was incredibly polite and friendly. I made the reservation online, and added that the reason of our visit was to celebrate a birthday. After our main course, the staff surprised us with a cake and lit-up candles, singing the happy birthday song. It was one of the best moments I ever had. I definitely advice the restaurant to everyone. Burçin on Iens.nl.

Enjoyed this place on Sat night. Its family run and the people have their heart in the right place.
Food wise its modern Dutch with a hint of Italian and a touch of Russian. 27,50 buys a week menu
with 2 choices of starter and main course, and a-la-carte is around 9 for the starters and 18
for the mains. Best dish appeared to be the starter of prawns, artichoke and tomato and
there is nothing too flashy or out of this world. I enjoyed my ravioli filled with spinach and
ricotta to start and chicken breast stuffed with foi grass for the main. Nicest thing was
the service which was very friendly. Iens.nl.
