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.

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.

Kale Pater is a nice small restaurant with an open kitchen. Dishes are pepared on an open fire. The cook stands literally next to the guests. The restaurant is situated in the center of Haarlem. Parkin is possible close by in an underground parking. The citu center is beautiful, especially the city square. I can recommend this restaurant to everybody.... More

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.

the restaruant is on a street that is just off of the main square. the restaurant serves the best ribs and steak. The service is generally excellent unless it is busy when it can be a little slow. Though I highly recommend tbis this restaurant.

We were there on a Sunday evening and the place was packed. We had a large table - for 12 people. Large tables can be troublesome, but the service was great and all the food arrived at the right time with no mistakes and without a long wait. The wine options were average, which meant everyone enjoyed something they liked.... More
