At Hout you may just ask for a good meal and get the best one you have ever had. Without studying a menu. Without being bothered by bragging recommendations. And without wisecracks on wines.

I love eating here. The staff is superb; easy going but very professional. The atmosphere is really good. Busy in a nice way. The dishes are at Michelin-level, and the prices are really very ok. A must go when you are in Haarlem, and the stroll from city centre to this pleasant part of city is very ok.

I hosted a team of 14 people for a dinner at this restaurant and they gave us the private room upstairs. Excellent high quality, very tasty food and drink, And very well served by friendly staff. It's about 20 minutes walk from central Haarlem and well worth the stroll to get there.

We are just back from this restaurant. The waiters/weitresses all made great effort to speak english and were friendly. We had the suprise menu which was delicious,allthou prtions were very small. great effort was put into blending flavours. Presentation was also great. We found this restaurant to be of good value and would highly recomend it.

Located just outside the centre of Haarlem, this restaurant serves very good food in a friendly ambience. The 4 course menu changes frequently and is worth tasting!
