Went here for a celebratory dinner and we had a lovely time. Atmosphere is fun, each meal comes with huge portions and friendly service.

Our hotel clerk, Luca, recommended this place. I'm always a little skeptical but thought it was worth checking out. The menu looked good, but what grabbed us was the fact that the place was packed, entirely (as much as we could tell) with Dutch folks. We had the fixed price, three course dinner and were blown away it was so... More

Having a great dinner with the two of us for the second time. First time we had a nice window seat this time near the kitchen (hot open fire plate). Too warm for us to sit so we asked a different table which wasnt an issue. Much better! It was wayyyy tooooo hot. Food has been great just like last... More

We ate here as part of a social deal special offer. We had a three course menu, with three items per course. The food was excellent, and it was lively to sit by the open kitchen and see what was happening and speak with the chef. The house wine is well priced and we really had a fantastic time. Even...

This is not a steak house in the true sense. It is a grill house, they only offer one beef steak, It is very good, but they offer a varied menu. This is couples/family place.

Been there on the 5th of May for a casual dinner. The atmosphere inside is very cozy, the kitchen is open and the meat is grilled in front of the guests on a open fire. Once out you're in the heart of Haarlem. I've opted for the grilled beef and I can confirm that is their specialty, great quality. Only... More

De Kale Pater in Haarlem, offers the best food in town. We always go here and have never been disappointed. They serve the best Carpaccio starter you will ever find. The restaurant is well known for it's grilled meat, I would recommend the mixed grill. If you come with a group, the staff and kitchen will always respond to special... More

Respect for the cook working in De Kale Pater, as the food is honestly amazing. Also the atmosphere in the restaurant was very good. It had a very 'bourgondic' Dutch / Belgian feel, where Dutch 'gezelligheid' is an imprortant aspect. Good beers and good wine, worth a try. Thanks, we will be back.
