Stumbled across this place by chance and was the best find ever! We had breakfast here and the serving was generous and SO tasty! Value for oney was good and staff were friendly. After looking at the dinner menu whilst here, I knew I had to come back and try- so a couple nights later we returned for dinner and... More

Went for an after dinner drink. Interesting cocktails. Nice outside seating and pretty chilled out spot. They do serve food but didn't sample in this occasion.

Stopped here for dinner and maybe because I had preconceptions about the place as it looks a little scruffy, i had a great meal. Veggie curry served on a banana leaf with chickpeas and chilli was cooked perfectly. Likewise my companions totrillas looked and tasted great. The place has a great vibe about it and was the best value meal... More

Just came across this on our walk. Big portions. Excellent food and serves beer. Amazing chicken salad. Salad in a basket was Delish and small nachos was huge!! We enjoyed our sleeves so much we stayed for an Irish coffee too. Highly recommend.

Were ready for a seat and something to eat after wandering around an extremely hot Amsterdam when we came across Harlem Soul Food. We both ordered cheeseburgers which came with salad and fries plus an Achouffe beer. The burgers were absolutely delicious, the fries were fine; and the beer was okay but not a lot for the price, hardly three... More

After enjoying a pleasant meander around the area we stumbled across Harlem & we're glad we did. Staff were friendly & made us feel welcome. The food took a short while to come but was worth the wait. The better half who had jerk chicken said it was one of the best she's had & I had the beef enchiladas... More

It's a lovely little restaurant with a nice spot to sit outside. We went for the breakfast and were not disappointed, it was really tasty and well cooked but in my opinion a bit pricey for what it is. Nevertheless, good place to eat!

It was very busy (fridaynight offcourse), staff is relaxed and friendly. A place for a beer, not for wine fans. Location is great. Age of customers varies, thats a plus (i think).

Thank Jorinde V
