Perfect food in beautiful restaurant

This is our favorite restaurant in Haarlem. If you love fish and fine dining, and appreciate value for money, this is a great place. Because most fish dishes are quite light, it's a nice place for an evening out with several courses without feeling completely stuffed afterwards.

I went to this restaurant with a group of 9 colleagues after visiting Vis en Ko with my wife late last year and having a fantastic experience. Maybe a bit risky to go back, as one often finds places never live up to your hype. No need to worry, my friends and I had a wonderful time. We had the... More

My wife and I tasted the sea fruit menu, it was amazing, beside the freshness of the sea fruits, service and presentation were impeccable and made the evening for us 1 to remember.

For the third time, we took the Christmas Eve special at Vis & Ko. As in earlier years, we were treated very well: a multi-faceted, well prepared menu, and a fitting wine choice. Mr, Binnerts and his team certainly know how to deal with seafood. The supporting courses were delicious and balanced, the main course was -in our humble opinion-... More

Vis & Ko lived up to all expectations except for one little thing. We took the menu where you can choose 3, 4, 5 or 6 dishes. The only negative thing is that even though you have choices of starters, and then between cheese and dessert, you have only one "choice" for the main course. It was good and tasty,... More

If you do not like fish. Don't go to this restaurant, because that's only thing what you can eat here. Luckily, I love to eat fish! Very good restaurant, with fantastic food. It is located in a old "pakhuis" (warehouse) and changed the inside to modern with very good atmosphere restaurant. It has nice open kitchen, we the chef Imko... More

Tuesday night. The two of us go for dinner. We arrive at just before seven. And get a table. Within the hour the place is packed. Seriously! On a Tuesday. Yes. Service was great and fast for Dutch standards (something I need to get used to). Food was great. Lots of fish. Go figure. Very nice indeed. The of us... More

I'm an expat in Haarlem and been looking for a special occasion to visit this '#1 restaurant in Haarlem'. Went there with my mother, who was visiting. It all started very well with smiles and greetings from the staff - probably because it was quite early and barely any people were at the restaurant. All went down hill from there.... More
