Been here with my girlfriend on a nice night out. It is located near the town market place in a small side street. The food here is very affordable and very good and they have a wide selection of beers. We will certainly come back here often!

Pleasant place in the old centre of Haarlem, in a little alley / street off Smedestraat, which itself leads to the Grote Markt. Bruxelles is specialised in BEER. A lot of beers on draught, and a multitude of bottled beers. That alone makes it worth a visit. But you can eat there as well. Relatively simple food, but very well... More

This place serves really good bar food. Simple and straightforward food, was very crowded even on a Sunday..was filled with locals with no sight of tourists at all. We were the only one! Can be quite tricky to locate as the entrance is situated at back alley. The only drawback is expensive beer.. 4 euro for half pint only.

This place is nice, with the belgian beers and the bustling atmosphere being the best parts of the experience. The food is average and not exactly on of haarlems culinary highlights, but if you are out for a wet evening with a bunch of friends it's definitely a nice place to to start in high spirits. Generally full, so book... More

If you have been to Haarlem, you should have gone to Bruxelles. Affordable food, always packed, and nice waiting staff. It's a bit like a diner in the U.S., and this is where you get to know what "gezellig" means. I typically eat here about once a week - they really have a nice deal for their daily meals. Do... More

Great food for a good price, not a place what you will find when you search a place to eat in Haarlem, but worth the visit

You really have to be a bar-tiger to fully appreciate this cafe bar. It is smallish, overcrowded and dark inside. The food is nothing more than mediocre bar food. The bar is located in a cute alley in the centre of town.

Would NEVER have found this place but that a waitress in a bar around the cathedral recommended it. What a surprise! Our table was on the ground floor beside the kitchen and the atmosphere was great. Our budget didn't allow us to have starters (same everywhere!) and the main courses were well within our budget. What really surprised us was... More

The food to good but nothing that will blow your mind. The ribs are pretty tasty. The bar on the ground floor is great for a few drinks with friends. Great selection of beers
