We booked a table here for a Saturday night (as we knew it was popular) and from entering the restaurant we were instantly struck by how quaint and interesting the interior was.
We were politely shown to our table by one of the most professional, friendly servers we have every met. She calmly welcomed us and presented us with the menu, whilst informing us that asparagus was in season and there were special dishes including it on the menu (naming them).
I ordered a bottle of white wine from Luxembourg (delighted to see a wine from Luxembourg on the wine list!) and it didn't disappoint, simply beautiful taste.
We both tried the asparagus soup, which was amazing and on a higher level to previous asparagus soup's I have tried.
What we noticed here that most of the other diners were really enjoying their meals too, everyone was polite and smiling and we even engaged in polite conversation with the Dutch couple at the table to the right of us for a very short time.
The female server informed us there was only one lamb left (always a good sign as its clear then they only order a certain amount in to make dishes from fresh). I went for the lamb dish and my wife tried the steak. Both were beautiful dishes, the taste jumped out at you, I haven't tasted lamb that good or cooked that well in a long, long time! My wife commented that her steak was a step above the steaks which she was normally served elsewhere. There were plenty of vegetables and garnish and the sauces on our mains were really tasty.
I can't even remember what we had for dessert, all I can remember is that they were both excellent quality.
From the moment we stepped in, to the moment we left, we felt welcomed here. The servers here are really knowledgeable and most of all, very friendly and know how to do their job very well. The food is top quality, the wine is excellent, the atmosphere is beautiful.
Definitely a place I would return to when I am hopefully next in Haarlem.
