Hotel Des Indes lobby restaurant

Hotel des Indes is one of the best if not the best hotel in the Hague in Netherlands and I was staying there for 1 night. I was feeling quite hungry and did not have any dinner plans so I thought I would go to the lobby and try their food and have a nice romantic dinner for 1. The lounge and the ground floor bar at Hotel des Indes are beautiful, with red chairs, wooden furniture, high ceilings and flowers, and it feels trendy and expensive at the same time, and if you are looking for a place to have a drink in the Hague, I would really recommend this.

The service was not great, and there were only a few people in the bar area but still it took the waitresses a very long time to finally spot me and approach me. They did have an English menu, which had some Dutch and some international dishes, and the selection was not big but there were dishes representing cuisines from all around the world. In the end I went for what they said was an “eastern noodle soup with shitake mushrooms”. The soup that I got did not have shitake mushrooms and instead had the more traditional chanterelle mushrooms, and the noodles were quite plain and ordinary noodles, but despite this I did enjoy the soup and thought the broth was flavoursome and also tasted Asian, and I loved the courgettes and asparagus in the soup as well as the chanterelle mushrooms, and also the portion was quite large, which meant I felt totally full after having this soup.

I did not have any other food, but later my friend Alex was telling me he had a charcutterie platter which was excellent, and had many different varieties of things there. He also had a cheese platter, which I had a glimpse at and which was very good with many different types of cheeses.

Hotel des Indes is not a destination restaurant, but if you are there for a drink or if you are staying there, do have the food there, as it will be quite nice and you are bound to find something you like in their international menu. Plus the décor of the lobby is beautiful as I said
