My family and I had Easter lunch here during our visit to the Netherlands. The waiter suggested the 2 course "suprise" menu and asked us if there were any foods we did not eat. He also suggested a wine pairing for each course. We're so glad we took his suggestions, the food and wine were excellent! We started with an appetizer of catfish mouse wrapped in smoked eel. Although I never would have ordered this myself, it was amazing! The starter was chicken on risotto, another excellent selection. The wines that were paired with each course really complimented the meal.
We saved room for desert and were so glad we did. The desert was a Grand Marnier creme brule which was outstanding as well.
We will definately be returning on our next visit to Haarlem.
