“Great steak and service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Came here after reading some great reviews, wasn't disappointed. The meat was excellent! I don't remember eating steak this good. The personnel was friendly and took their time to explain the different types of meat. The wine selection was good as well. Will eat here again. If I have to find something negative it would be the decoration. I would not enter this place by simply walking by. With some Wood on the floor and a less noticing commit on the wall most of it would be solved. However all together it was great.

“At last, perfect steak in Haarlem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

I ate here with a fellow meat lover and we were certainly not disappointed! The meat selection is fantastic, the service good (and knowledgeable) and the wine great! We both had the chorizo sausages as a starter and then had 1 selection of Wagyu meats served to perfection.

This will certainly become my regular choice for perfect steaks, something Haarlem has been lacking for a few years!

“Raising the Bar in Haarlem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Traveling to Haarlem frequently for business, we always look for a different restaurant. Knowing that this was a new restaurant in Haarlem, we thought we would give it a try. The restaurant is quaint and comfortable. There are two sections in the restaurant. There is an open section with large glass panels that open to the street and a section that is more private.

We were pleasantly and genuinely greeted by Kamal, the owner. Kamal makes every effort to assure that you fully understand the menu and the many choices available. The menu is very unique by providing different cuts of meat from different regions around the world. Kamal can also adjust the menu to suite your preference. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. We sampled steaks from 3 different regions on the world and taste the difference. This separates the Golden Bull apart from other restaurants. Our dinner amazing.

At the time, we were in town for business with a large group. When our group of 14 planned for dinner, we did not hesitate to contact Kamal and return to the Golden Bull. He easily accommodated our group. The talented staff again delivered excellent food and everyone LOVED their meal.

The next time I am in Haarlem, the Golden Bull is where I will eat.

“Best steak I've had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

If you like a good steak, then look no further!

If you like excellent service, and staff dedicated to giving you an experience as well as a great meal, then you've found the right place.

A relaxed no frills athmosphere and staff that know what they're talking about, a selection of great wines and the best meat money can buy.. Argentinean Angus, New Zealand Hereford, Scottish Angus and Wagyo Kobe from Dutch cattle..

If you haven't tasted Wagyo kobe beef before, you're in for a treat (heck, even IF you've tasted it before, you're in for a treat) it's the most tender, tasty meat you'll ever taste... but what do you expect from pampered cows??? grown up on the best food money can buy, wine, regular massages and classical music?? I want to be that cow!!!

Anyhow, do yourself a favor, try it out! I had the golden combination, kept it simple NO sause or other condiments than potatoes, and it was amazing!
