This is a must stop, located right under the windmill. We were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day and ate on the patio while drinking in the city of Haarlem across the river. Fun to watch the river traffic and great pit stop after walk from city center to the windmill. Food is astounding and the staff is very... More

Good food, friendly staff, nice location. If your looking for a tradition lunch away from the hustle and bustle of the town this is a great spot. Definitely recommend.

I visited the Zuidam Restaurant together with my three girlfriends, because we lived in the apartment above the restaurant while our trip to Haarlem. The staff at Zuidam is extremely nice and obliging, also fast and attentive. The food was nice, although not really special. The location itself is definitely worth a trip. You can either sit outside and have... More

Find a table on the terrace overlooking the Adriaan Windmill, and the canal boats slowly meandering by, then order a slice of warmed apple cake and espresso. The peace coupled with a beautiful view of brick buildings, Dutch flowers and a wooden windmill will bring you absolute contentment. Apple cake is not served all day.

Had a wunderful evening at Zuidam. Made a reservation, but we could sit outside until it was getting cold and switch to inside. That's great service. Inside it was cosy, but a bit too cosy for my taste. The food was pretty basic; it's only a bit better than a regular "eetcafe". That's fine when sitting outside. But if it's... More

My husband and I discovered this restaurant on our way to tour the de Adriaan Windmill. The day was cold and dreary, so it was nice to escape the elements for a cozy and warm restaurant. We sat by the window facing the water - if I recall, the table was made from reclaimed ship wood! It was nice to... More

First time at Zuidam. It's main attraction for us was the terrace below the mill "Adriaan" and on an small former shipyard. A 5 min walk from the city center. Quality of food looked attractive was quite good. Staff, while friendly and service minded made some minor mistakes. All in all a great dinner and a great evening outside. Will... More

Fill you up in the shadow on a windmill with the canal in front of you. Try the fish soup with cognac cream, it's delicious!

This is actually my second visit but the first for dinner as the previous was in the summer and it was more for beverages and finger food. Dinner....nice concise but complete wine list to accompany your selection of food. Menu again concise with two day specials extra...and those were both really good! The staff and owner whom we met and... More

I have to be honest. I haven't yet set foot inside Zuidam. This review is based on my experience drinking coffee and eating Dutch apple pie, outside at the tables by the canal. The coffee is great. (It's easy to get good coffee in the Netherlands.) But the apple pie was the best that I've tasted in Haarlem or Amsterdam... More
