There are many great restaurants in Haarlem and we thought we had found our favourite at Specktakle. However, our experience at Vis & Ko was so amazing that it is now at the top of our list of favourites. We chose 4 courses and both had different choices. Each dish was so wonderfully cooked, presented and served. My husband loves... More

Just had a really lovely Sunday afternoon meal in this excellent restaurant. We had three courses and chose the accompanying wine selection too. Every dish was perfectly cooked and we thoroughly enjoyed the wines and the explanations. Service was very friendly food great and the atmosphere was excellent. One of the nicest meals I have eaten !

Had a great night with friends. Food and atmosphere was excellent, although the menu is quite limited. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Compared to other places we'd eaten in we thought it was on the expensive side.

A special €25 menu option made us decide to finally try this restaurant after reading so many good reviews. This was great value for money. The food was excellent: nice ingredients, very tasty, beautifully prepared and creatively presentated on the plate. There is a good selection of (also affordable) wines and we enjoyed a very pleasant Spanish one for €... More

Vis&ko is most probably the best restaurant in Haarlem (there are plenty of them) and definitely the best fish restaurant! We will come back soon. Top class, fresh seafood and great selection of wines. The waiters are well trained and pay attention to details (although each dish is served by a different one). Open kitchen, which lets you to sneak... More

Service was very friendly and above all proffesional with a nice explanation of wines and plates. Restaurant is located in centre and modern but with... More

Vis&Ko is one of the jewels that Haarlem has to offer to those who appreciate good high standard cuisine. The fish dishes are excellent, fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. The personnel is knowledgeable, friendly and their service is outstanding.

A wonderful "small" restaurant by the Spaarne (river) in Haarlem. A clean and well maintained establishment with a peaceful ambience. Reservations are recommended. I have had numerous business and Family dinners here. They cook the fish & food within the dining area (info: for those of you who may prefer the cooking and eating places to be separate).The staff are... More

Years ago we ate at his restaurant in Ijmuiden and Alkmaar. They were top restaurants and we were curious to try his new location by the Spaarne river. The place has a modern, clean and classy atmosphere with an open kitchen. The fish and wine were of excellent quality and nicely presented. The staff is young and enthusiastic. We had... More
