We were hooked from the moment the starters arrived. Beautifully presented, created with care and completely delicious. Main course had a tough act to follow but did not disappoint. Very good value considering the standard of food that is provided Peter, the chef & owner, took time to come and chat with us, to check all was in order and... More

A colleague recommended the restaurant to us and given it was close enough to where we live, we decided to give it a go. We made a booking on the day itself and was lucky to get a table. We were running late as our grocery home delivery arrived later than expected. We called the restaurant to apologize and they... More

This restaurant is a favorite of ours. The menu changes frequently, but always indicates original Australian cuisine. There is a good guidance to choose the appropriate wine. The service is excellent and very friendly.

Southern Cross is a badly kept secret. For those of us who have discovered Southern Cross but still have to book well ahead of a table, their success is our loss ! The restaurant is located on the main road from Heemstede to Zandvoort. In the summer you can eat outside when warm enough. In terms of value for money,... More

Social business dinner, including wife and son of one of our colleagues that had earlier lived in Melbourne. GREAT menu -- interesting choices including Crocodile and Kangaroo for those that want to try something different from half a world away.

Fantastic menu with Australian and European dishes, well-prepared, beautifully served. Many interesting appetizers, creative desserts, strong main courses. Price-value is very good. Wine selection is excellent. Tru the wine arrangement. On a Saturday night completely full. Located in a quiet neigborhood near Haarlem.

Good food with sometimes the australian touch and fair prices. Sometimes a bit noisy when there are groups around. Nice wine list.
