“A good find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

We ate at Parel's after circling around the restaurants in the area. Despite the waitress lookinng for an English menu, it could not be located, so we did our best to figure out what things where, but she assisted with a graceful patience. They had a reasonable set menu price, however, after two courses, we full, so skipped dessert and the bill was less than it would have been. The food was ample in quantity and full of flavour.

“Nothing to complain about, nothing to cheer about”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

I ate her with family last summer and I never came back since. The food was pretty good, the service quick enough, I just missed a special vibe I was looking for. Cosy, kind of intimate, that was missing I guess. And I don't really get the pearls concept, so random and it has nothing to do with food.

“Great ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

What a lovely restaurant in the old center of Haarlem! It is very close to an underground parking garage. The restaurant is in a narrow but very deep building. Because it is so deep it seats many. The lighting is good, cozy. The service is incredibly good, efficient, quick and friendly.
The menu is diverse and the prices are good. When you get the bill, one is presented with a 10% discount card for the next visit.
All in all good value for money and worth a return visit withour hesitation.
