The location right on the river is really nice, and I imagine that sitting outside in the warm weather would be heaven. But, the inside offers a beautiful atmosphere of warmth and sophisticated calm cosiness. It's not a huge place, by any means, and the quality of the space makes one feel that part of an exclusive dining experience...partially due... More

The food, atmosphere and service are all brilliant. By far our favorite meal of the week. The pork with peanut sauce is incredible. Don't forget to save room for dessert! We had both the pear and chocolate with ice cream and ate every bit.

While visiting De Adrianne windmill we saw this very charming place next door and had to try it. Along with the beautiful interior and great service it has been our best meal thus far! We enjoyed the cheese board which was a good sampling of 5 cheeses, a Croque Monsieur and the Malaysian Laksa soup which I loved (if you... More

Lovely location under a windmill overlooking some water. Noise level indoor was slightly high. The food was good overall (beef carpaccio was a hit but the burrata a slight miss), two nice steaks and white chocolate cake and an Italian coffee with amaretto for dessert - delicious!!) The doneness of the steaks were the only small issue but still we... More

Drinks by a canal underneath a working windmill. Great place to watch the world walk and sail by! Please seek this out if in the area.

Perfect canal location next to a windmill in Haarlam. Ask for the "bow skiff" table in front of the folding doors inside the restaurant. Best view in Haarlam. We had a glorious lunch with the burrito salad and the daily sandwich on scrumptious whole grain bread. Did we mention the fries, hand made and lightly fried? A 9.9/10 on our... More

This is a must stop, located right under the windmill. We were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day and ate on the patio while drinking in the city of Haarlem across the river. Fun to watch the river traffic and great pit stop after walk from city center to the windmill. Food is astounding and the staff is very... More

I visited the Zuidam Restaurant together with my three girlfriends, because we lived in the apartment above the restaurant while our trip to Haarlem. The staff at Zuidam is extremely nice and obliging, also fast and attentive. The food was nice, although not really special. The location itself is definitely worth a trip. You can either sit outside and have... More

Find a table on the terrace overlooking the Adriaan Windmill, and the canal boats slowly meandering by, then order a slice of warmed apple cake and espresso. The peace coupled with a beautiful view of brick buildings, Dutch flowers and a wooden windmill will bring you absolute contentment. Apple cake is not served all day.
