“BastiJan: experience Dutch 'gezelligheid'”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

A friend and I ended up here, and we were lucky: they were celebrating their 'anniversary' and they had a special surprise menu. It was delicious! I didn't know the Dutch cuisine could taste that good. Not only the food is very Dutch, also the 'gezelligheid' (cosy) is typical. It's small and unique, even a cat was walking around if I remember well. Staff was friendly and they had nice wine as well. I felt really welcome.

Recommended!

“Gezelig little place”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

What a lovely little restaurant. The welcome was extremely friendly (the chef waved at us as we perused the menu outside), the menu was very varied and the wine list excellent. It was no problem to modify the dishes to deal with dietary requirements and overall very well priced. Would definately go back.

“Always a pleasure!”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

We live in Haarlem, and go to Bastiaan three of four times a year, often to celebrate something. In September we celebrated the sale of our house. You can rely on the same good quality, the portions are generous and the presentation is agreable. Menu changes regularly, mostly per season. The service is performed by young enthusiastic people.
