This somewhat eccentric place is suitable for food and drinks and open all day. The menu features some classics and a few kitchen specials. Arguably the best outdoor location in the whole city during the summer time.

The best thing about this restaurant is its location. Situated in the very center of Haarlem, it can offer you a pleasant evening on the bank of the picturesque Spaarne canal, especially in the summer. With food, it is slightly different, and that's what matters more when you go there in November. My impression is that the cook attempts to come up with interesting and original dishes, but does not quite deliver. For example, I had cod fish fillet with "cassoulet" (beans, spicy sausage, lemon and thyme), which sounded very interesting when I read it from the menu, even though I knew it had nothing to do with the French cassoulet. It tasted fairly good when I tried the first bite. However, with each new bite it became less and less tasty and more and more dull. In the end, it was neither satisfying nor filling. On the other side, my wife did like her white fish (with quinoa, green beans and lemon) and dessert (panna cotta with forest fruit ice cream). I noticed some other people ordered Cote de Boeuf, which looked really, really great, and seemed to be a much better choice than the one I made. Main dishes are around 20 euro. The portions are on the smaller side like in the rest of Holland, with an option to order a bowl of fries or veggies for 4-5 euro extra.

Spaarne 66, as the name indicates, is located along the river Spaarne which runs through Haarlem. Both the exterior as well as the interior of the restaurant look very attractive, reminding me of small cafés in Paris with their debonair atmosphere.

The three course menu that we had started with a quite average scampi salad with artichokes, followed by a surprisingly tasty and fresh sea bass with cauliflower. The dessert of lemon cake was no less of a treat too.

We didn't opt for wine but chose Vedett beer (a somewhat hyped Belgian pale lager for yuppies) instead.

The service was friendly and the prices on par with what you would expect in an expensive city like Haarlem. We paid about 80 Euro for two persons including tea and coffee.

Prima.

We had a very enjoyable meal at Spaarne 66. All in the party were pleased with the food. The al fresco seating was extremely pleasant. The staff was helpful in translating the menu for us. I highly recommend this restaurant!
