The different sort of tapas really looked appealing on the menu. However the dishes were poorly executed. Weren't that warm and they burned the garlic gamba's so the smell on my clothes and hands (even after washing) was not very appealing.

It always used to be a coffeshop/lunchrestaurant, but now I found out they also have a choice of "tapas" . The choice is not exhausting but the quality is ok , although it is a liitle bit high-priced, however the location makes it possible.

My partner and I sat outside this lovely restaurant as it was a warm sunny day. The service was very friendly and efficient. We each enjoyed very fresh sandwiches and coffee. A very pleasant and relaxing experience.

The service was nice even though a bit slow. The food was OK even though on the expensive side. OK for a quick bite in the city centre.

Nice restaurant on Haarlem's Grote Markt. We only stopped for coffee but staff members were welcoming and friendly, and the service was good. The restaurant also has an outdoor seating area.

Bodega de Karmeliet was a lovely evening out - the food delicious and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful. The menu is in Spanish, with Dutch translation and we did get a few surprises as our Spanish is a little rusty! Don't let this put you off though as the staff generally speak good... More

Tasty and food using fresh ingredients. The service is good, but as it gets more busy the service is a little bit less responsive, but all together a very nice place to go
