It had been a while since we had diner at The Wandelaar, but our longing for a good bearnaise sauce lured us to Haarlem. And no regrets. For ol' times sake we had the escargots and shrimp croquettes after we had tasted the lovely homemade labneh. Delicious!! My diner companions enjoyed the mussels (with cream garlic, yummy) and I had... More

After several months in Haarlem, this has become one of our favorite places for dinner or drinks. Fantastic dry aged steaks. Very nice owner. Lovely setting on the "new" church square. Highly recommended.

Last week we had dinner in the small 'De Wandelaar' restaurant before we went to a show in the Haarlem City Theatre (Stadsschouwburg). Food, wine, service and atmosphere were good and friendly. Walking distance to the theatre 5 minutes. Walking distance from parking garage 'Raaks' to restaurant appr. 10 minutes. Prevent to get lost in the narrow streets of Haarlem... More

This restaurant was pre informed about dietary restrictions, but must have overlooked it. Dessert was freshly purchased pine appel from Albert Heijn, not ripe yet (so sour) and without any additives. Why am I visiting a restaurant for this?? A chance to present yourself, but too bad, we'll never return.

We happened De Wandelaar by accident; it is close to Museumplein. It is a terrific wine shop and cafe (coffee bar). We went in our last morning in Amsterdam hoping to get coffee and a roll and were thrilled to learn that they cook a fresh breakfast! It was wonderful! I had eggs and my daughter had pancakes. Staff from... More

I booked this restaurant because it is close to the Stadschouwburg. The food was very nice, and the restaurant looks great. Minus point, the staff, or the kitchen was not so quick. Although we informed them about our theaterbooking, we had to run to be in time.

My favorite day in Haarlem was the one I got lost. It took me to the doorstep of Restaurant De Wandelaar, which is one of my best experiences in this extraordinary city. The place was positively charming on a quiet square in a residential neighborhood. The proprietor was also the server, a handsome Dutch gentleman offering all the friendliness characterizing...

We first came here 2 years ago on a busy Saturday evening when it was full of locals - We enjoyed it so much that we sought it our again on our visit last week. It's a small restaurant tucked away near a church on KerkStraat (Church Street, I assume). Another good alternative to the bigger restaurants in the main... More
