When passion rules the game, ideas rise to action

In the beautiful summer of 2018 we started a great journey in the Hague, the city where we live and which we truly love. Given our diverse background it first was an exploration of ideas, trends, but more importantly, discovering our universal passion.

The outcome of that discovery is Bistro La Cigogne, a place where we celebrate life. La Cigogne is French for a stork, the symbol of the Hague, ‘de ooievaar’ . Located on the Piet Heinstraat 97, in the heart of the Zeeheldenkwartier, our bistro delivers a new concept.

Our Team

Our chef ‘s food is predominantly French inspired, with a modern international twist, using seasonality to lead a menu that invokes memory and brings a narrative to each plate. Trained in France, he has more than 20 years of experience, lately at Café Emma in the Hague. As we care much about our environment we continually strive to source locally, reduce waste, and minimize our impact on the earth while simultaneously upholding quality levels of our menu.

Our Restaurant manager has great love of food and passion for people. He brings our guests a truly memorable experience to their tableside. His keen eye for detail, nurtured in different roles in France and the Hague, ensures the dining room is kept at its very best before, during and after service. In the background the team is complemented by our general manager, with unsurpassable organization and financial skills gained in the banking sector, who oversees the running of the restaurant from the finances to promotion to the floor.

Our Service

It’s all about sharing love for each other, enjoying great food, drinks, music and much more. La Cigogne is a contemporary culinary and wine destination where local and international guests meet. You can choose from the a-la-carte menu to a maximum of 9 guests. When you visit us with a larger party, we are more than happy to create a tailor-made menu for you. Just visiting us for drinks, or like us in the mood to celebrate, try our social bites menu.
