We stopped here for a bowl of soup late afternoon on a cold day. They were quick, pleasant, willing to serve off the lunch menu though it was just past 5. There was an English language menu as well!

This was a delightful surprise for us. We were looking out for some Gluhwein and popped into this restaurant situated on the Botermarkt Plein. The Gluhwein was superb but the all you can eat spare ribs was magnificent. In fact we enjoyed it so much we went back two nights later for more! The second dish was a chicken satay... More

On a sunny Sunday, my friend showed me around in Haarlem. On Botermarkt, there are a lot of terraces and restaurants. We went for a drink and more drinks. Very attentive and fast service.

We went here for a dinner. What is good here is a variety of tasty beers (local and Belgium) and perfect spare ribs for indeed fair price! And of course, bitterballen and other Dutch starters.

The spareribs were really nice and it comes in 3 different flavour (sweet, spicy, and extra spicy). It cost 16 euros and it is free flow (just let the waiter know when you want to order more). Would definitely recommend if you like spareribs.

If you like spareribs or sate you definitely have to try this Cafe. Spareribs in 3 different flavors sweet, medium spicy and hot with a good portion of fries and salat on the side. The Cafe also has a great assortment of different beers to choose from. I reccommend the spicy ribs!

The choice when eating spareribs is often between quantity and quality, with restaurants sometimes serving two distinct products based on whether you opted for an all-you-can-eat-variety. Not here: I think these are some of the best ribs I've had in Europe, and they come accompanied by a wide array of craft beers. Definitely a good place to eat if you're... More

For some reason this one attracts a different audience than the ones next door, roemer and gooth. A bit more lower class.. Not my kind of bar

It does look like there are other offerings on the menu but everyone around us were having the ribs so we went with that. The ribs are meaty, very filling. In some other rib places we've been the ribs have been very small, so these are the super size versions! The spicy sauce is a very strong bbq sauce which... More
