Lovely lunch

My partner and I sat outside this lovely restaurant as it was a warm sunny day. The service was very friendly and efficient. We each enjoyed very fresh sandwiches and coffee. A very pleasant and relaxing experience.

The service was nice even though a bit slow. The food was OK even though on the expensive side. OK for a quick bite in the city centre.

Nice restaurant on Haarlem's Grote Markt. We only stopped for coffee but staff members were welcoming and friendly, and the service was good. The restaurant also has an outdoor seating area.

Bodega de Karmeliet was a lovely evening out - the food delicious and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful. The menu is in Spanish, with Dutch translation and we did get a few surprises as our Spanish is a little rusty! Don't let this put you off though as the staff generally speak good... More

Tasty and food using fresh ingredients. The service is good, but as it gets more busy the service is a little bit less responsive, but all together a very nice place to go
