We were a party of 9 which through them off a bit, but they accepted us and opened their back room/patio - which was a great place to sit. We all enjoyed the ambience. The menu is quite different with an array of flavors and countries represented. We had a variety of appetizers - crocodile cakes, calimari, sausage 'rools', soup.... More

Interesting new world wine, pairing with 5 course umami meal was fairly good. The food was not excellently prepared but at acceptable level, interesting choice of food from the South. Yes, interesting is the keynword here, if you are looking for classic well prepared food, try another place.

We had booked a table for the late "shift" (20.30) through their website, and they barely had a table available when we got there. The place was absolutely packed with people, so it is very popular and reservations are in order. They found us a spare table real soon, and we were provided with a drink and a snack fairly... More

Still a great Restaurant with a perfect world food. We still love to eat here, evertime when we are in haarlem. The people are open minded and the team is very helpfull because of some special food. We always try something new and we always get suprised in a good way. We miss some kind of this restaurants in germany.

Do you know that ONE restaurant that you know is ALWAYS good? Where the waiters are always nice and know their stuff? Where the atmosphere is relaxed yet sophisticated? Where you can have NO idea what the stuff on the menu is, but you trust the chef enough to order it anyway? (and he does NOT let you down) Well... More
