Best restaurant in Haarlem to my opinion. € 29,50 for a 3-course menu. Food is magnificent. Super friendly staff. Been here 3 times already and it will definitely not be the last time. The place is always packed so do make a reservation

I was strolling around the old Haarlem central square looking around at the various dining outdoor options, many of which seemed a little cliched or touristy. I decided to try Parels based on the menu posted at the entrance, and I wasn't disappointed! The prices...More
