2nd restaurant that i visited. Restaurant offer 3 course meal, but I only ordered the salmon meal not the appetizer, food is good especially the dessert, but when it comes to payment, the lady in the counter is a bit unfriendly.

I dropped in here after strolling along the canals looking for somewhere to eat. Humphrey's was by way the most well supported restaurant that I saw, and based on that fact I stepped into the restaurant and was lucky enough to secure a table. Warm and cosy interior, relaxed yet efficient service, and terrific comfort food. A good find, and... More

Very large restaurant, which you will only discover when walking through it. Very nicely decorated in old wooden style with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and tapestries on the floor. The place is well visited, especially suitable for groups. The food varies between good and moderate, but the menu is well priced, approx 20e pp.

Humphrey's is worth paying a visit, for its the distinct venue and its decor. If you ask for a table in the back, you can eat in a library - which gives an authentic atmosphere to your stay. The staff is very friendly and attentive to one needs. We only had little time for diner, yet insisted to have a... More

Called in here with friends hoping for something special based on other reviews. Unfortunately we were a little disappointed. While the atmosphere was fantastic in a lovely old building and the service was very good, this was let down by the quality of the food. Although, the 3-course menu option offers a good selection, the servings are small and uninspiring.

We both had the three course meal and the food was plentiful and tasted good. Nice wine and beer options as well. Only disappointment they don't offer the creme brule anymore but the carpacchio was good.

The Humphrey's is part of a chain of restaurants in the big Dutch Cities. It lies in the historic City Centre of the Northern City of Leeuwarden. The food is pretty nice and the service good. I can recommend the three course meals from the menu.

Had dinner with a group of friends last night. The service was particularly bad. Sat at a table next to the bar. 3 employees were chatting behind it but could not get their attention. Had to walk over several times to ask them to take an order. When they finally came the server was rude. Food was ok but nothing... More
