Very nice atmosphere with friendy staff and good service. They can serve 45 people without a problem. The set menu was great (we could choose one from different set menus before the dinner, and each menu offered more options to choose from on the site), the food was delicius. Local people like it, I would't hesitate to go back.

Was happy to have booked a table upfront. Although waiting at the bar wouldn't have been that bad. Anyway the food is of a good quality and the staff is nice. A good experience all together.

I say wee as when we arrived the place was packed... not that big an issue as there was a bar we could wait at. After being seated we were offered English menus straight away, that saved us the embarrassment of asking for them. I have to say I was looking at the chillies on the menu until the ribs... More

The restaurant is located next to the cathedral. Unfortunately there is no possibility to sit outside. The ambience is fine and so is the food, but nothing special.

Stopped by here on a whim as we were exploring Haarlem. Atmosphere is very festive and music was nice. The waiter was attentive. The food was just ok BUT the margaritas were awesome. I would return here for the margaritas alone.

With a family of 5 it is a great spot for dinner. Extreme casual and nice atmosphere. The interior is quite overwhelming and there are ponchos and sombreros for taking pictures. The food is average but still ok for the price. The portions are rightly sized and tasty. All in all great for family but nothing outranges in terms of... More

We'd already been traveling for two weeks when we got to Haarlem and getting tired of eating out. We couldn't decide where to go for dinner, so I asked a local what his favorite go-to restaurant was, and he recommended this place. We went there, and to double check, we asked two young women eating outside how the food was... More
