We had a family diner (10) here on a Sunday. The staff was friendly and the service and food started out nice. As the restaurant got busier the quality of the food went down, as did the speed of service. Some dishes would take 30 minutes to arrive. Overall it is ok value for money, but I have had much...

As with most all-you-can-eat restaurants I've been to in the Netherlands, the quality of food was not great. The croquets were nearly hollow, and the roasted peppers were doused in some salty seasoning. The fig salad was good.

Very strategic location in the city center of Haarlem, but you may have overlooked it because the sign is just too small. Call in for reservation for their all-you-can-eat tapas for €17.50 which is quite affordable. The tapas selection was a lot so yes, we were very happy. The drinks are also not expensive... Do try the strawberry cheesecake cocktail!

We had a lovely lunch of tapas on a sunny afternoon. The food was delish and good value for money. The location is great for watching the world go by on a nice day. The service was friendly and prompt. We did notice the numbering on the English menu was different from the Dutch menu...so we got to try a... More

On a sunny afternoon I sat down on the packed terrace, it was literally the last available seat. The server approached me promply and took my drink order. I asked for a menu as well and soon both items arrived. The young lady told mecall tapas were € 3 per serving. So I ordered some chicken, goat cheese and prawns.... More

Now I really have a feeling that people don't like to tell others about really good places:-)...As I don't really understand how this place can have such a low rating!!!Outstanding view, so many places on the air, fast service, my favourite tapas - you can order 53 (!) different tapas! 17,5 Euro offer for unlimited number of rounds\orders looks like...

We loved the food and the friendly, noisy atmosphere! 17.50 euro for unlimited rounds of tapas was a great way to try so many different dishes with friends. Lots of choices with different sauces. Probably not a place for a romantic dinner but one for a fun night with friends.

Ate here a few time times already and I always have a good time. The food is good and there is a lot to choose from. When you don't expect haute cuisine, you won't be disappointed. And to be honest, with €17,50 for unlimited tapas (Monday through Thursday), you can't really expect haute cuisine. The place always seems to be... More

Misled by the name, we found a sort of fast food tapas place instead of a cuban restaurant. There was not one single item on the menu that was cuban cuisine.The service was à l'américaine, something we had not yet seen in Europe. Most of the staff appear to be in thier late teens - even the cooks. Waitress came,... More
