We chose this place on the basis of tripadvisor reviews and were really glad we did. We enjoyed all the food, particularly the vegetarian coconut curry and beef stew with chorizo. We would definitely eat here again if we return to Haarlem.

The food was delicious! Really tender meat. Also the service was excellent. Our waitress really went that extra mile to make our visit as good as possible. When I weren’t sure what wine I prefered, she took out different wines for me to taste. She...More

Intimate restaurant with archaic decoration (great for those who love that). The food was nice but didn’t blow me away. Did like the chipper waitress, she was on the case.

The staff were fabulous. We had an awesome asparagus soup with egg and speck and also seabass with both white and green asparagus. Everything about the meal was delightful.

Location is in the midst of the tourist zoo. And the restaurant is on the mediocre side. Food, ditto. Nice staff. Reservation was not honoured, at restaurant we were informed that they ignore reservations placed after 18:00 — nice. Cannot understand their trip advisor rating.

Nothing wrong with the food, just the seating, where they had, at a minimum, at least 6 covers too many, including a table butted up to the steps to the toilet, yuk! And one person serving approximately 20 people, all of whom arrived within 30...More
