After a disastrous meal last night elsewhere, Cafe Colette was a wonderful treat. If only we had come here first! I had the menu Colette: beginning with sweet breads in a very refined, velvety cream sauce with a small portion of pasta... Delicious... followed by perfectly grilled lamb on a bed of creamed potatoes with chard... Absolutely couldn't be better...... More

Good food, fabulously friendly service! One of our fave places to grab a snack, dinner or just drinks and oysters. The guys waiting the tables are absolutely spot on.

We ended here for a quick late diner after a stroll through Haarlem. Surprised by the very quick service we still got (rare in this country). Food was good, not too big portions, and nobody insisted when we only had a caraffe with water to drink. A. It on the pricey side.

The place to be if you ask the locals. Well since we are locals and didn't know it we gave it a try :-). Well it is true it is great food. Pricing is above average but worth it. It is not special decorated inside but just nice and feels welcome. The staff is friendly and is always available for... More

We wandered in to the centre of Haarlem on a Sunday night, wondering if we would find any life as the town seemed deserted. Fortunately we found the Cafe Collette which was full of life and people enjoying themselves. Just what we needed. We both had the Tournedos which was served with a basket of vegetables and looked lovely. I... More

The mediaeval heart of Haarlem looks wonderful, but it is not exactly endowed with many fine restaurants. Fortunately, Cafe Colette is an exception in the positive sense of the word. The mackerel with pickled vegetables tasted quite good, followed by a more than pleasant chicken. The portions were not generous but acceptable, though I am a fairly moderate eater. The... More

This is more a brasserie than a restaurant, food was tasty, served with attention and a smile, no long waiting time between dishes. Better to make a reservation (place was full). Only downside was the noise. When booking, make sure to ask to be placed in the separate 'restaurant' room. I will be back.

Nice atmosphere, the food was really tasteful. Not many choices but that is a pro for me. The starters and the chicken are highly recommendable.
