Day trip to Haarlem as part of a one week river cruise. Noble Caledonia arranged lunch at Stempels and it was surprisingly good. Been on these trips before and lunch for 100 people is often rather a hit or a miss - indifferent food served by indifferent staff. But this was good - a very nice three course lunch with excellent service from friendly, pleasant people. Nicely placed at corner of main square - plenty of seating outside and inside - good toilets and WiFi! Would definitely go back another time.

We were looking for a good start to the day and found breakfast at Stempels to be just so! Walked in off the street for a nice fresh and plentiful choice of food for a reasonable price

The restaurant is set in an beautiful characteristic building where the Dutch banknotes were printed. You can park at the parking garage "de Appelaar", just a few steps away.
We had the new 4 menu course, and had sea bass, duck and popcorn flavoured ice. It was delicious and the service was very attentive.

It had been a couple of years when we last had dinner in restaurant Stempels. This time we went with friends. The food served was more then excellent! Everything was fresh, the dishes were innovative. The service very attentive, helpful and kind. The time between meals was just right. The wines were superb. We all took the cheese platter and we could choose from the trolley. The choice was good. The lady serving the cheese knew what she was talking about when explaining us the cheeses we had. After one plate of cheese and a great glass of Port, all of us wanted more of this good stuff. So we asked if we could and this presented no problem whatsoever. Without hesitation we again were given the choice of these delicious cheeses. All in all a great evening and we will be back. The prices are not very cheap, but the food is worth every penny.

The food at Grand cafe Nobel is actually quite good, their location is great! between the river spaarne and the city center and with an excellent view of the majestic Grote Kerk, you should think it was a given, that this was THE place to go.. However, even though they have a good menu, and quite tasty food, the service is just not good enough. The people who brang the food couldn't take my drinks order, so I was left waiting for the 'real' waiter to come along, and faced with a choice of eating without a bevarage, or eating a cold meal.. That's just not good enough! And this on a day where not even half the tables were occupied.. Try again!
