Great bar and restaurant situated in a very cool part of Leiden. Great outside seating area, where you can watch Leiden life go by. Service good, and atmosphere very relaxing. Menu is also tasty and not expensive. Will definitely return.

We ate here all four nights we were in Leiden. The food was very tasty and unusual. Shared plates were encouraged, but the ribs were so good that I didn't share! Staff was very good also.

Easy to order, share platters, or solo or surprise menu. At lot of care was taken to arrange and dress the dishes. We were sitting close to the open kitchen and did see many platters pass.

The food was good overall. There was some better than others. The restaurant is attempting to replicated American southern soul food. It’s a good attempt but need to work on the flavor. I would not give it 6 stars but their attempt was admirable. Please...More

Leiden's only soul food restaurant is located at the Morspoort. De la Soul has a broad menu for lunch, dinner or drinks. Soul food, delicious food that emerged in the southern United States and was influenced by Creole, Cajun and Caribbean cuisines. Enjoy lunch or an evening meal at an intimate table, or order real soul food finger snacks at the bar. What's more, the sunny pavement terrace will make you want to stay longer for a lingering taste of Leiden soul!
