This is a great place!! Period. The food is outstanding and creative and actually, it is too cheap!! No kidding. We've been traveling to Holland since 25 years now. Trust me, apart from a very few places (check out "De ware Jacob" in Bergen) it is still not soooo easy to find really good food in NL. It is, however much (!) better from what it was back then. Paper-thin slices of radishes, marinated and topped with cous-cous in a very tasty way. duck rilette with screaming fresh salad. raw tuna with wasabi nuts...those were just the starters. lamb on fat green beens, slowly cooked beef stew, crispy grilled salmon.... i could go one and one....honestly, that was one of the best meals I've had in the last 12 months and I do eat out a lot. Last not least: a very charming, friendly and well trained staff made our evening at BastiJan a fantastic experience. WELL DONE!

Wife and I had a nice longish meal here. Very well located in old center of Haarlem not far from the Amrath hotel.

Ordered wines by glass.
Service very good.

Food very well presented and prepared.

Ordered grilled lamb loin , very tasty and medium rare as preferred. With Pesto pasta with Spinach and pecorino cheese.

And grilled fish over bed of asparagus.

Appetizers we had Marinated raw tuna with lentils. These were the
Specials of the day.
Also a Nice glass of red wine.

Excellent meal. Good service too.
Will return if have a chance .

The food is like a home prepared meal, not too salty, but it misses some flavor. We could see the part of the kitchen, they prepare the food from scratch which is great and especially these days when a lot of restaurants use microwaved food. They have white asparagus which is the famous one and it is very soft and delicious.

Intimate restaurant with archaic decoration (great for those who love that). The food was nice but didn’t blow me away. Did like the chipper waitress, she was on the case.

The staff were fabulous. We had an awesome asparagus soup with egg and speck and also seabass with both white and green asparagus. Everything about the meal was delightful.
