You don't find many Paris like bistrots in Holland but Colette is a nice exception. The food is good, simple menu, the atmosphere is nice and the service is friendly.

Surprisingly good casual French bistro right in the middle of Haarlem. I'm so glad I followed our waiter's recommendation and ordered the BBQ Spring chicken -- beautifully tender with delicious sauce on a bed of root vegetables, and of course, a cone of crunchy French...More

Nice restaurant, nice atmosphere. The mixed plateau of cut meat is nice but not very french with many nice Italian products. The rillettes de canard were great. Bouillabaisse: I am from Marseille so I get touchy when it comes to the usage of the word...More

Nice place, french style. Good traditional dishes, steak tartare and melanzane. Boot were tasteful. Service is good, fast and polite. Busy, you should make a reservation.

A local told us to go here so we did, but we were not that impressed with the food. The service at the bar was great, and the oysters were wonderful. The chicken was dry and not that special...a grocery store rotisserie chicken is better.....More
