About us

Why the name “LaSalle”? For any Frenchman, it means nothing more than “the room”, a place to meet. For me and my family, Lasalle is the name of the village in the French Cévennes where we spent every summer holiday in the house of grandfather Charles and grandmother Geneviève. Fishing, swimming and roaming all day long; lovely! These childhood memories will linger forever even though the house is no longer family-owned.

Ever since the day that I started working in the hotel and catering industry at the age of 18, I dreamt of having a restaurant of my own. I frequently changed jobs and employers to develop different skills, much needed for an entrepreneur. I was given a chance in several outstanding restaurants, hotels and even a luxury cruise vessel.

In 2008, I took a side-step into education as a cooking and economics teacher. During this period, I learned a lot about coaching young people, helping them to develop their skills and personalities and exploring their respective talents. Even today, some years later, I go the extra mile in order to help my team members get ahead in work and life.

In this culinary adventure, I manage to stay true to myself: cooking “à la Française”, without pointless frills. Our choice to use local products as much as possible makes sense; moving fresh products around has a devastating impact on the globe. The Netherlands produces fantastic vegetables, fruits, meat and fish. Respect for people, animals and the planet are a key value within our restaurant.

We look forward to welcoming you in restaurant LaSalle; A bientôt!

Grew up around the corner of the village Lasalle, Southern France, and can tell you this place is as authentic as it... gets! From the typical carafe water with baguette, delicious seasonal menus, right down to recognising the buildings in the village photos on the wall - very spot on!read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Lasalle. It is a lovely restaurant. The food is hearty, obviously prepared freshly... with the greatest care and attention and the wine is excellent. We enjoyed 3 courses including delicious French cheeses. The owner is friendly and welcoming and the staff charming. The restaurant is cosy, we enjoyed the music and the atmosphere was really conducive to a relaxing evening. It is also excellent value for money. We wouldn’t hesitate to return. This restaurant deserves success and is a much-needed addition to the offerings in the city centre. Thank you!read more

This is an excellent review for an lovely excellent small Restaurant in the heart of den Haag (the Hague) where you are... being offered good value for your money. Because very good food of an excellent French cuisine with chosen wine that goes well with the nice food is being offered and served for a reasonable price. İ experienced immediately that the Chef makes the food with love and passion and is very skilled and intuitive... The staff looked well chosen considering the nice friendly ambience... Having taken a seat in a cozy corner i was not surprised facing soon a friendly nice waitress ready to note the order... What surpassed my expectations by far was surely how this chef and personal takes the customer serious with extensive hospitality from the moment of entering this cozy small Restaurant until also leaving the place. After every visit i left this restaurant satisfied later... Remarkable is also that this place is always being kept clean. Whenever you want to enjoy spending a good warm evening (see opening times) consider trying out this pearl of a Restaurant as i was lucky to experience 😍 Especially during summer time and during warm days it is such a wonderful choice. And the customer has also the option to enjoy their food in a beautifully decorated terrace located at the back side.read more

Excellent service at a superb price! The customer service was amazing. My wife has a life threatening food allergy and... the chef went above and beyond to ensure she felt safe and welcomed! We had a three course meal with wine pairings that were prepared splendidly! Couldn't recommend this place more! Would definitely come back next time we are in The Hague.read more

Free water and bread when we came in, I'm already sold. Next up: the food. Edit: the food was very nice, very good... quality also considering the price. In other words: this is too cheap for what you get.read more

Food is above average and with a nice price tag. The only downside is the admisphere which is so so. Also staff is to... engaged with asking every 5 minutes if everything is well. Maybe this has to do with not to many tables are booked.read more

Great and friendly service, fantastic food and amazing wine. Only the espresso could be better. But a three course menu... for 25€ with that great quality is something, you shouldn’t miss.read more

Wonderful French restaurant in the heart of The Hague. Nothing better than dining on the terrace late into the evening.

Yesterday I had the pleasure to dine in LaSalle. What a lovely hidden gem tucked away in Nieuwstraat right here in Den... Haag! When I walked through the entree I immediately saw two of my favorite things; a planted vertical wall and beautiful desiged wallpaper with flowers. It gives the restaurant that lovely welcome and relaxing feeling. They even have a small back garden, but it is a little too early in the year to enjoy outside dining. But then again we came for the food 🙂 and we were not disappointed! I loved the aperitif which we got to choose from a map of france, and the starter of my choice was was a soft and delicate rillette of mackerel accompanied by fresh french bread (my weakness..). The main course, a ratatouille was so good! They had a good selection of cheeses which I sadly had to pass but the men shared a platter and they were both extremely pleased with the choices of the cheese. We had a wonderful evening here so thank you Lasalle! #lasalledenhaag #denhaag #thehague #diningout #restaurant #restaurantsindenhaag #frenchdining #frenchcuisine #fransekeuken #aperitif #hiddengem #verborgenschatindenhaag #nieuwindenhaag #intimatedining #romanticrestaurantread more

Lovely quiet restaurant in the city center with a small but delicious menu for a very reasonable price, lovely and... dedicated staff (French chef!) and a homely feeling. The cheese platter puts to shame any one I've had in Holland, it's the real deal!read more

Impressie

De trend om in een soort industriële ruimte horeca te bedrijven is alweer op zijn retour. De gast heeft ook wel door dat hij/zij uiteindelijk met een galm in het hoofd naar huis gaat. Een kleine ruimte met een intieme sfeer is toch veel gezelliger? We hebben tijdens en na de verbouwing al veel positieve reacties mogen ontvangen op de keuze van de aankleding van het restaurant en privéterras. De zaak is  volgens velen licht, open en sfeervol geworden (Lisa, bedankt voor je advies!).

Op het rustige privéterras achter het terras kan bij lekker weer worden genoten van lunch en diner. Wanneer andere gasten daarvan geen hinder ondervinden mag daar ook gerookt worden. Het carillon zorgt af en toe voor prettige achtergrondgeluiden.
