Had a wunderful evening at Zuidam. Made a reservation, but we could sit outside until it was getting cold and switch to inside. That's great service. Inside it was cosy, but a bit too cosy for my taste. The food was pretty basic; it's only a bit better than a regular "eetcafe". That's fine when sitting outside. But if it's... More

My husband and I discovered this restaurant on our way to tour the de Adriaan Windmill. The day was cold and dreary, so it was nice to escape the elements for a cozy and warm restaurant. We sat by the window facing the water - if I recall, the table was made from reclaimed ship wood! It was nice to... More

First time at Zuidam. It's main attraction for us was the terrace below the mill "Adriaan" and on an small former shipyard. A 5 min walk from the city center. Quality of food looked attractive was quite good. Staff, while friendly and service minded made some minor mistakes. All in all a great dinner and a great evening outside. Will... More

Fill you up in the shadow on a windmill with the canal in front of you. Try the fish soup with cognac cream, it's delicious!

This is actually my second visit but the first for dinner as the previous was in the summer and it was more for beverages and finger food. Dinner....nice concise but complete wine list to accompany your selection of food. Menu again concise with two day specials extra...and those were both really good! The staff and owner whom we met and... More

I have to be honest. I haven't yet set foot inside Zuidam. This review is based on my experience drinking coffee and eating Dutch apple pie, outside at the tables by the canal. The coffee is great. (It's easy to get good coffee in the Netherlands.) But the apple pie was the best that I've tasted in Haarlem or Amsterdam... More

We were a party of 4 couples and made a reservation for this lovely situated restaurant on the Spaarne river. They turned the old shipyard "Zuidam" into a beautiful small restaurant with a nice terras overlooking the Spaarne. Service is friendly, the food and the wine was good. Bit expensive: 65 Euro per couple for drinks, diner and wine. We... More

We went there after a sunny day. The terrace was full and the restaurant inside was crowded. Luckily we had a reservation. We had dinner. The waitress did speak some English, while the service does very from one waiter to the other. The recommandable dish is the lamb fillet. Very tender lamb. The prices are on the high side for...

While the food is lovely and service polite and quick, the best thing about this restaurant is definitely the location. Placed on a lovely canal, by the windmill, very close to the station - what else would you want? I can imagine it will be great in the summer, and i intend to come back to confirm my suspicion. I...

It started with good food and a nice atmosphere, having lunch with my family and friends. For some reason after 1,5 hours the restaurant manager came to me and said I had to move because I was consuming beyond the area of the restaurant. He could get a fine for it. I know Dutch regulation can be a pain. Wanted... More
