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

I am not sure I'll be going back. If I do, I will not order the chicken avocado salad nor the rasberry cheese cake. The meat in the salad was from a package, like what you put on bread, and there was hardly any sign of avocado. I must admit this salad looked like something else in my mind: big... More

Great little local place with good food and atmosphere. Nice menu and good service. It is one of those places that you do not know about unless a local brings you (which is how I came to eat here) or if you read about it on Trip Advisor. If you want to go to a real Dutch local restaurant you... More

Bruxelles is and always will be an all-time favourite. It has a selection of almost 80 beers, both on draft and bottle, and it has a great menu for reasonable prices. Don't ever expect a 5-star treatment here: it is not a Michelin star restaurant. It is a small neighbourhood bistro, where the staff is friendly and expects you to... More

Bruxelles has a good concept going for them: inexpensive food and a wide variety of good drinks in a good atmosphere with friendly service. Over the last years though: food really declined. Ribs or a chicken like item should be moist and fall of the bone right? It doesn't. I was a frequent visitor of the place and loved it.... More

This restaurant was convenient to our B&B but it had very good food and prompt service. We ate there several times and were not disappointed.

I have been here 4-5 times, if not more. You can't make a reservation, as it's always full. But that's of course for a reason: you get VERY cheap but tasty food, great value for money. Atmosphere is amazing, 90% locals. Nice to experience for tourists, very 'Dutch' atmosphere.

We have been here four times, twice just for a drink, and twice for food. Love this place. The employees are very welcoming and accepting of our inability to speak Dutch :( The service is fantastic, the food so reasonably priced.....almost shocking!!! It also is quite good. We have every intention of becoming regulars because we can eat cheaper than... More

My family and I live in Haarlem. That means that we are always keen to find real nice places where you can eat very well and at the same time is very affordable. Bruxelles is one of those restaurants. This review is based on 6 visits over the past 12 months. Actually it's name is Cafe Bruxelles and the interior... More
