Since the very first it has been my favourite restaurant in Haarlem. Right away you feel welcome, the staff is very courteous. The food is a pleasure, the wine matches, the ambiance is great. I can wholeheartedly recommend this place.

Excellent restaurant in city centre. Ate with two friends - one had duck, one pork belly, one bouillabaisse, all very good. Starters and pudding also good. Not cheap, but recommended.

Had a lovely dinner here last night. The daily menu was absolutely delicious! The vitello Tonato in particular is a piece of heaven. Staff attentive and fast, all in all had a lovely dinner, no negatives whatsoever!
