Reliable kitchen with good grilled meat

Been here several times, the food is always ok, especially nice grilled meats, the lamb is lovely! Wine list is simple, but you can find some good options.

De Kale Pater in Haarlem, offers the best food in town. We always go here and have never been disappointed. They serve the best Carpaccio starter you will ever find. The restaurant is well known for it's grilled meat, I would recommend the mixed grill. If you come with a group, the staff and kitchen will always respond to special... More

Respect for the cook working in De Kale Pater, as the food is honestly amazing. Also the atmosphere in the restaurant was very good. It had a very 'bourgondic' Dutch / Belgian feel, where Dutch 'gezelligheid' is an imprortant aspect. Good beers and good wine, worth a try. Thanks, we will be back.

De Kale Pater is known in Haarlem for its generous portions and blue-collar(ish) atmosphere. The fish platter came indeed in huge portions with the unavoidable fried potatoes. It was fairly OK and reasonably fresh, but nothing special. The Dame Blanche that I had for afters was not to be scorned too, but plain average again. The service was slow but... More

Nice restaurant in the centre of Haarlem. The Kale Pater theme was continued inside with various statues, etc. Good food, standard enough steak and fish dishes. Service reasonable, I felt it was maybe a little overpriced for what we had but food was good, tasty, well presented. Would go back there.

This restaurant serves decent food. I had the seasonspecial (3 courses) which was very reasonably priced and had good portions. The dessert was excellent. You can sit near the grill so you can see how your diner is prepared. They have a smoking area outside but it has heating.
