We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard Amsterdam Airport Hotel which was great and this is part of their amenities. Papa's was beautiful, the lake view amazing and relaxing. We had appetizers and cocktails here on a lovely day. Everything was perfect really.

Great ambiance, good food and a great place to relax on the lake. Everytime I go to Haarlem I make time to go here.

The appetizer plate for two was wonderful with 5 samplings (chef's choice) of different appetizers--two each. My husband said his steak was one of the best ever steaks. My salmon was perfectly cooked and also very good. The service was friendly. We had a window seat overlooking the lake. What a delightful evening.

Papa Hemingway decor, and Papas beer. Good for lunch and bites. Got there after 8PM, and dinner service was done. Closes at 9PM on Sunday.

We discovered Papas last summer and have been back at least 5 times. Enjoy the burgers and gin cocktails. They have their own label beer (from Jopen). Nice patio and an also an area to bring your dogs if you like. If you're looking to have a private party you can do this as well. Great view of the lake.... More

Was here recently. Fantastic setting, especially when the sun is out. Had a BBQ style dinner. Was quietly impressed.

In the middle of a park, in front of the water, this place has a fantastic view. Although not in the beach, it has a beach style and the decor is really nice. Food is very good, as the other restaurants of the same complex (Claus).
