We were 3 persons waited about one hour and half to get all our food served. Really hungry...The taste of the food is good though. It's not recommended if no booking is done.

Beste Changhong,

Wat vervelend om te lezen, het was deze avond erg druk.
We hebben ons dan ook meerdere malen verontschuldigd over de langere wachttijd.
Ook hebben we u nog een brood en een amuse van het huis gegeven. We weten dat wachten lang kan duren, maar anderhalf uur is niet helemaal waar.
We hopen u nog eens terug te zien als u weer in Haarlem bent.

Hartelijke groet team GRIJS

We have visited Effen Grijs again after more than a year. The food is delicious! Surprising combinations of ingredients. The dishes are made with care, love and look beautiful. Although the restaurant was full, we were able to get a last minute reservation after 20.30. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The surprise menu is a must! The wines are good, but a bit (over) priced.

We were recommended this restaurant by a local. The chef is Australian and prepared some unusual dishes. We had carpaccio of swordfish, samphire, dill and sauce, followed by barramundi fish filets with razor clams, then selection of cheeses.

To describe it with one word; SURPRISED. You can choose to select a surprise set menu but also a la carte. The combination of ingredients are so put together so nicely. I chose the surprise menu; tomato sorbet with parmesan and basil, sword fish with garlic and capers, Flank steak and as dessert a peach sabayon with hazelnut crunch and yoghurt.

The interior is quite dark, but they have really nice light bulbs everywhere.

The waiters are very kind and thoughtful. I really enjoyed my visit and will definitely come back again
