Set in an old building in Haarlem - lovely ambience - friendly efficient staff - good service - staff very knowledgeable in regard to the food and wine being served. Ask for an assiete of wines to compliment the taster menu. If you want to try something a little bit different Ican certainly recommend this restaurant.

There is no doubt about the fact that this is best restaurant in Haarlem. We had 5 course dinner with the wine arrangement and they were definitely complimenting each other. Loved the food, wine and sophisticated atmosphere. It's not cheap to spend evening here but it's a real treat for yourself and sometimes you need that.

I have eaten several times at ML, and it was always a great experience. The restaurant is set up in a historical building which - together with the atmospheric interior - gives the place a nice ambiance. The staff is kind and professional, giving good explanations and advices on food and wine. The food is prepared with mostly local -... More

We had long wanted to try this restaurant as it had a star and was also a JRE member. We had eaten in other JRE restaurants and found the price quality ratio to be high. We took the opportunity to go during one of the many Dinner Weeks that take place. This meant we had three courses for 40 Euros... More

High quality ingredients and pleasant surroundings were let down by third rate service. Waiters seemed intent on galloping noisily around while barking at foreign guests (who actually speak Dutch -YES we do exist!!) in far from perfect English. This was exemplified by their insistence on calling the menu the card. Food was fussy and little effort was made to balance... More

I have been to several 1 star restaurants and I must say the experience (both food and service) with ML is the least favorable one. It's unusually hard to not impress me with amuses, and they did. The amuses were not impressive and they were not even memorable. I had recently also been to De Bord'eau in Amsterdam and was... More

We went here with 18 family members to celebrate a special occasion and took a 4-course menu, which was delicious. We had a separate room for us at the 1st floor, this is very comfortable. Service was just perfect, could not be better. The waitress anticipated all our needs, came very politely with practical questions / suggestions on how to... More

Together with family from overseas we enjoyed a really superb lunch and accompanying wonderful wines.The ambience in this restaurant is created with a combination of modern furnishing in a historic 17th Century monument. It was actually rather nice to see two young women walk in with a baby in a pram and also settle down for a relaxing lunch. The... More
