Great little French restaurant serving fresh home-cooked French meals with local ingredients. Barbara made us feel very welcome, and the vibe is relaxed with good selection of local or French wines and beers. Will definitely come back again!

My husband and I travel to Haarlem several times per year and always make a point of having dinner here. The food will transport you out of Holland and take you to a quiet French bistro in Paris. The decor is warm and unique and...More

Where, nowadays, do you find a true French bistro in The Netherlands, with onion-cheese soup and French chansons? The ambiance evokes a feeling of somehow being transported back in time a few decades -- not an unpleasant sensation. The food is decent, but not spectacular....More

I've eaten here several times, and have always had great food. The service was excellent! All of our courses were delicious, and the chef presented the food beautifully. This place should be packed every evening, and I'm not certain why it wasn't during my three...More

Food OK, service poor. We dined on a Saturday night when the Christmas Market was on in Haarlem, so the town was packed. This restaurant was pretty empty (maybe 11 customers). The owner/manager tried to blame the poor service on a new young waiter, but...More

This restaurant, located near our parking station, looked very interesting so we took family for a thankyou night out. It looked lovely inside, great atmosphere, BUT the service was almost not there and the food was sooooo disappointing. We tried the trio of shellfish as...More

Barbara and Gerrit are great chefs and create a welcoming atmosphere. The food is lovely and the resto is located very close to the centre and 10 seconds to the Spaarne river. Apart from good food, you can also enjoy some live music from Gerrit!...More

Located right next door to our vacation rental "Charming House in Historic Haarlem", this restaurant serves great French food and the owner will delight you with his accordion skills. Weds and Sun are recommended for the 10 euro specials.

A very nice little restaurant with an excellent kitchen and good service. All in a cosy French atmosphere and an outstanding price quality comparison.

hidden behind the concrete Parking garage 'de Kamp' is a neat small French restaurant, serving a superb dish, being 'the cote de l'os'. Guess it was a piece of meat of roundabout 750 grams.. Wait till the owner suddenly comes out of the kitchen, wearing...More
