As you can read in the other reviews aswell this is a great restaurant. Friendly service, different menu (Kangaroo, Crocodile, Emu, Etc. and a very good relation between price and quality (35 euro will get u 3 courses). Australian wine, australian Beer. Don´t forget to try the Pavlova Dessert accompanied by the 20 year old museum dessert wine.

I went there saturday evening Before thé queens day with my dutch girlfriend on thé idéa to à friend of her. Nice australian décoration Inside beautifull outside garden but it was too cold to eat there this Time. Staff very friendly And professional.
Thé menu is short but 32.5€ for entrée plat et dessert And thé big advantage compare to other restaurant is that you CAN havé starter And main course or main course And dessert for less than 30€ ! For example Spektatel australian restaurant in Haarlem is 32.5€ for 2or 3 courses. Another good point you CAN find à bottlle of Wine at less than 20€ which is very difficult in holland!!

For me my two first courses were very tasty i was surprise by The quality And finest of The food at this price!!
My dessert was thé Cream ganache (Maybe thé only négative point) it was good but not fantastic but i was so good Before than...
I finish as I use to with à very good espressivo at 2.20€ serve with 4 little meringue And 4 little chocolaté with caramel....yes 8 sweetest with thé cofee at this price ! At The end of thé dinner The chief came to talk with us And offered à cofee again with thé 8 sweetest but I only drink my cofee (merde!!!).
OFF course they accept visa And American express.
I mean you understand this restaurant Where I dinner entrée plat dessert cofee And à bottle of Wine And à bottle of water for 45€!! Its clear I cant find this quality for this price in Paris so my table is Still booked When i Will Côme back to Haarlem in 3weeks.

While walking down a street in Heemstede, close to the main Dutch Airport, I saw "The Southern Cross"... While living in Africa, the "Crois du Sud" gives me a total different Idea, but I was curious and went in. It was a restaurant and we got a table outside in a pleasant garden.

Service was very friendly, menu short, and I am not to much into "trendy" so called 'Bush Meat' ( Kangaroo & Alligator) but we ordered and the food was good, it was a bit long to come, ( we said we were in a hurry as we had to catch a flight) as the restauranmt looked busy inside and at arrival the meat was cold, but besides that, it was tasty. I will go there again, next time !
