Very nice and friendly staff. Small terrace outside and beautiful inside. The vegetarian "rijs tafel" was gorgeous.

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant - the food is very tasty and if you're not familiar with Indonesian food, they're happy to explain everything and made sure to provide plenty of vegetarian options. Even though the restaurant was fully booked, they made extra effort to accommodate an elderly couple who had been walking in the cold and... More

It being Christmas, the Christmas menu was the only choice available. Thinking that my sensitivity to shellfish might be a problem, I told our very nice waiter and he immediately informed the kitchen. Result: some very clever tweaking meant I wasn't offered anything shrimpy, in fact the chef recreated one or two dishes that normally involved the little critters. That... More

Had a very nice experience dining at this Indonesian restaurant. Couldn't really fault it, good service, good food (and lot's of it!!), lovely ambience. Thoroughly recommend it! Being Indonesian "virgins" we chose the rijstafel (a varied selection of vegetarian and meat dishes). All very tasty! Service was particularly attentive. It wasn't the cheapest meal we've ever had... But it was... More

The restaurant looks very inviting from the outside, we had a lovely welcome from the waiter as we entered and the service was faultless from beginning to end. It's nice the restaurant had an English menu, the selection of main courses isn't massive but more than enough, we were wondering what to have when we saw the "all you can... More

Went here with a group of colleagues from work, we were looking for Indonesian food and found this place by luck. Pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food, service level from the staff and the reasonable prices. Next trip back to Haarlem will include another visit to Flamboyant!

Flamboyant was chosen to provide a simple dinner on a Monday evening after a long day's travelling. Two starters plus a shared main course was the perfect quantity for two people. The flavours were well chosen and it all tasted excellent. The choice of wines was entirely satisfactory and the man who served us enthusiastic and attentive (but not hovering... More

A wonderful dinning experience with helpful staff (Judith) to answer your questions if you are new to Indonesian food. We shared the sample dish that included sixteen choices of delicious food.

This restaurant looks pretty simple and small from the outside, and frankly i was never really drawn to eating here. We got i visited by some friends and were very pleasantly surprised when we went inside. Very nice atmosphere, spacious and friendly service. The food was very nice, and the portions very generous. Hint though... If it is hot outside... More
