The place to go in Haarlem

If you have been to Haarlem, you should have gone to Bruxelles. Affordable food, always packed, and nice waiting staff. It's a bit like a diner in the U.S., and this is where you get to know what "gezellig" means. I typically eat here about once a week - they really have a nice deal for their daily... read more

This place is nice, with the belgian beers and the bustling atmosphere being the best parts of the experience. The food is average and not exactly on of haarlems culinary highlights, but if you are out for a wet evening with a bunch of friends it's definitely a nice place to to start in high spirits. Generally full, so book... More

Great food for a good price, not a place what you will find when you search a place to eat in Haarlem, but worth the visit

You really have to be a bar-tiger to fully appreciate this cafe bar. It is smallish, overcrowded and dark inside. The food is nothing more than mediocre bar food. The bar is located in a cute alley in the centre of town.

Would NEVER have found this place but that a waitress in a bar around the cathedral recommended it. What a surprise! Our table was on the ground floor beside the kitchen and the atmosphere was great. Our budget didn't allow us to have starters (same everywhere!) and the main courses were well within our budget. What really surprised us was... More

The food to good but nothing that will blow your mind. The ribs are pretty tasty. The bar on the ground floor is great for a few drinks with friends. Great selection of beers

We went here per the advice of a Haarlem local, and it was advice well taken. The food was good, nothing extremely culinary but what you can expect in a 'beer cafe'. Several vegetarian options, all packed with lots of veg. The atmosphere is cosy and the staff doesn't really have that well of an overview, but they are very... More

Lovely setting, and the decoration was wonderful. We enjoyed the crab cakes, the Surf and Turf and the cheese cake, all well above the norm. Waitress Jessica was a delight.

We visited this café twice whilst staying in Haarlem recently. We both ordered dishes of the day for 6 and 7.95 Euros respectively and were not disappointed. The first time I had fish lasagne and my husband had homemade beef burger with a good salad and chips and both were very tasty and filling. The bill for our meal with... More
