Now known under a different name: ‘Brasserie de zon’.
We got a very warm welcome when we entered, shame it took them so long to come back with a menu and our drinks order, it didn’t look like it was that busy…
Very nice and knowledgeable sommelier, shame the wines he picked didn’t really match our food. Great wines though! The food was good but nothing special, I didn’t think it was what we expected for this price.
However, we’ll give this place a second try.

We had the four course set menu for about fifty Euros, this was great value for money. Apart from the four courses there was a very nice amuse at the beginning. The fitting wine arrangement with the set menu was outstandingly good. Bread was ample and vey good as well. Nice touch was the unlimited supply of table water in bottles for a fixed price of Euro 2,50 - this in contrast with many better quality restauarnts where they make you pay a lot of money for bottled water. Service was non-intrusive but informative. The restaurant was stylish with a fairly sparse decoration contrasted with some huge vases of pink flowers. Cooking was really good, somewhat conservative with lots of purees and foams which is a bit the vogue of 2008, however very tasty. We ran pretty late but the staff showed no sign of impatience whatsoever.

I ate from the set menu. Superb amuse bouche came smoking to the table. The crab/smoked halibut starter was superb. The main of beef and celeriac was excellent. Unfortunately, I was unable to taste the star anise in the sauce. My partner ate the ham platter which was to die for. This was followed by the salsify risotto with Parmesan foam and shaved truffles. Both were superb. The service as always was brilliant. Translations were excellent. Another fantastic meal. A Haarlem tradition.

My husband and I stayed in Lambermon suites, so the choice for the restaurant was clear!
We had a three-course menu and had oysters to start with. We chose the Dutch ones, and they were magnificent!
Other dishes were also beautifully presented and tasted great!
I wouldn't be surprised if they got a Michelin star sometime soon!

Having seen other reviews we headed to Lambermon's after visiting the Rafael exhibition just around the corner. What a great combination! The restaurant interior was modern, spacious and comfortable. We were seated near the open kitchen adding to the atmosphere and experience. The range of choices was outstanding..wines by the glass or full bottles, meat (aged, dried hams), cheese, fish - spoiled for choice! The service was friendly, efficient and unintrusive. Our special request for a salad starter was accepted without hesitation and the combination of greens, toasted nuts and cheese was creative and tasty! The mains were equally satisfying such that our only disappointment was the end of the meal.
