The restaurant is along the road the winds through the Spaarne River. So I can imagine that this must be a nice restaurant to visit in spring or summer. The staff was very friendly although a bit stiff when informing us of what was being served and the wine associated with the dish. I took it as a language issue... More

We had an excellent 5-course diner at Vis en Ko. The service was great (although a bit formal as you often see at more expensive restaurants) and the quality of the food was excellent. Every dish was a work of art with well combined different flavours. Vis en Ko also offers a wine arrangement which presents a different wine for... More

Okay let's be honest, The food here is a bit expensive. But good, food has his price. The fish here is perfect fresh. And be aware it's difficult to be creative with fish. They found the perfect mix between creativity and keep it simple. The tuna is the best here. A reason to visit Haarlem.

Excellent fresh fish restaurant with a very tasteful menu and excellent service. I came later than the rest of my table, but they did every effort to make my dinner a wonderful experience.

excellent fish dishes but it is quite expensive. The waiters dress in sailor outfits. You can see the kitchen and preparation area which is a great touch.

This place is great! The staff is friendly and very enjoyable, the room is spicy and light. It's near the river Spaarne, which makes parking a little bit easier. The menu is wonderful. There is a wide range of dishes and lot's of great wines to go with those. Every single plate is a delight and the wines are dead... More

Was here with a group for business. Our meal was pre-ordered but it DID NOT have any affect on how good the meal was. The starter was a tuna tartare topped with a yellow (not sure what it was) sauce which had bits of bacon in it and dark caviar accompanied by some greens. The tuna was very, very good... More
