“Nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

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.

“Nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

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.

“A good decent hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011 via mobile

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.

“very popular - for all the right reasons”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

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. The vegetarians were also catered for plus those with special dietary needs. The ambiance was great even though our table was further back from the street. I believe this place is probably best recommended for meat-eaters as they do seem to have extensive options in the meat arena. Large groups can be accommodated.Parking - park the car at De Kamp parking garage and its a 5 minute walk from there. It is also walking distance from Frans Hals hotel and the Grootte Markt (center of Haarlem). 5 min walk.
