“Nice brasserie, Good food & service, a bit noisy”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

This is more a brasserie than a restaurant, food was tasty, served with attention and a smile, no long waiting time between dishes. Better to make a reservation (place was full). Only downside was the noise. When booking, make sure to ask to be placed in the separate 'restaurant' room.
I will be back.

“French food with good taste.”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Nice atmosphere, the food was really tasteful. Not many choices but that is a pro for me. The starters and the chicken are highly recommendable.

“Nice Bistro, friendly prices.”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

We keep coming back to this 'international style bistro'. Confit, steak tartare, oysters to start with. Seabass, Petit Poussin, Tournedos Bearnaise as main course. All of good quality and reasonably priced. Service is relaxed, and well informed. Friendly priced wines (Meursault or Chassagne-Montrachet both €50), wide selection of open wines. Mixed crowd, vibrant atmosphere.

“Ontspannen tafelen.”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

After a round of golf on the Kennemer golf club friends invited us to have dinner by Cafe Colette in Haarlem. After a long search for parking space( a big problem in the centre of Haarlem) we arrived at the restaurant. The restaurant is a casual place with a young crowd. Here you eat not in a quiet ambiance but the buzz is good. A little like a brasserie in Paris is I think the right description. The food is ok, average products with average presentation. A good choice of wines some cheese at the end made the evening pleasant. A good place for a relaxed dinner but do not expect to much.
