After reading stellar reviews on TA, we made a reservation for dinner tonight. Warmly greeted, we were escorted to a lovely booth in the far rear corner. My husband joked, this is great unless it means they ignore us...how true this proved to be. While the food was excellent, the service was abysmal. The waitress, polite and warm at the... More

A great night! Excellent service with lots of charm and humour! A party of 20+ peoples had a great night. A wonderfull selection of starters and desserts was all delicious -but the lobster made our day! Keep up the good work👍

Very nice decor in a bustling food strip in Haarlem. Friendly, attentive staff, great cocktails (they make a fantastic G&T) and a very nice starter plate with freshly prepared cold meat and cheeses. Tasty food, my only comment is the list of mains is just a little bit limited but other than that, no complaints, a very nice restaurant in... More

It is pretty rare to find a restaurant where they serve great food, have a lovely ambience and where the staff is great, but this restaurant has it all! The oysters, gravad lax, lobster and steak my partner and I had were all amazing. When we asked to have some extra time between the starter and mains they did so... More

On a balmy September evening I returned to eat at Toujours behind the cathedral in Haarlem. It has been a few years since I have eaten here and Wotchao, who owns and runs the restaurant with his wife, has slowly but surely pulled the strings of his dream together. The menu has been slimmed down giving the chefs the ability... More

From the starters (oued cheese and bitterballen) to the main courses (lobster and steak) - a pleasure served by friendly staff

Just. Perfect. The two words that pop up in my mind at first thought. I went here with my friend to have a nice and calm dinner, which worked out perfectly! We had a bread for starters and a Kir Royal for drinks. Then the chaperonne came to us and introduced us to the lobster and the Flank Steak. I... More

Recently in Haarlem we found this restaurant on the main square. The staff were very welcoming and the food was delicious - we went back and I had lobster....twice. The staff were exceptional and a bonus for us that one of the waiters was a fellow Scot. Fantastic! Keep it up and we'll be back in the future.
