We visited this restaurant last Saturday night and it was a disappointment. We have visited quite a few restaurants in Haarlem and there are some really good ones, unfortunately, this one is overpriced and underwhelming. We were aware of the menu options and were happy with the set menu. The starter was lukewarm at best and average. The main course... More

This is really a nice place to spend a nice evening, eat well, drink adequately and relax. ...and everything would be perfect this way provided that you are aware of few things which might (and indeed have if you reed some of the previous reviews) cause some annoyance at the moment when it is time to pay the bill. If... More

We used our Albert Hsing restaurantzegels here. It was a nice experience, with a unique menu. They had a vegetarian option which my boyfriend thought was better than the meat option (feta wrapped in a crispy pastry and a mushroom alternative to the steak). The food was delicious, but the asparagus and poached egg weren't completely warm. For dessert we... More

Although I was missing the impeccable sense of detail I experienced two years ago when still at their old location it was still very good and worth a good 5 star rating! Would advice anyone to go here for a great experience for dinner. Our server was a nice girl who went above and beyond to make our night superb!... More

A place we go back to almost every year. We take friends and family to enjoy the food and atmosphere. Friendly people, good service, good chefs. Yes, there are two of them! We like the concept they offer: one menu consisting of 6 dishes. Ofcourse, when there is something you can't or are not allowed to eat they prepare something... More

I often used to go Truffels, especially when they were still in their old building (the cooks are aquaintances). Now they have gone bigger and the already big ego of the head waitress (girlfriend of co-owner) has grown the same size as the new building. Our last dinner there, with friends, was the last ever. We went the full monty,... More

I recommend the six course menu and wine pairings - you will enjoy the creative flair and taste local cuisine at its best. C'est peut-être la meilleure table dans la region. Cuisine local soigné.

This restaurant offers one, monthly changing, menu (6 courses for 45 EUR). It is one of the most sought-after places in Haarlem, so booking a table well up front is recommended. We were lucky attending one of its "try outs" including the pairing wines for a consumer-friendly price of 55 EUR. The starter of tuna with pickled cucumbers was fresh,... More

The price is right for a diner menu and the ambiance is ok. But there are to many details one your plate. The same with the taste, nothing is pure. Service is friendly and fast.
