We stopped here for a snack in the afternoon to escape the rain, and we ordered two G&Ts and the cheese fondue, which was tasty. It wasn't busy at that time, so we chatted with the staff, who were casual and kind. We came back...More

We were 2 couples and went there with the AH Restaurantactie. I had the cheese fondue as starter, the ravioli and the chocolate tart as dessert (this one was reaaaally nice). Food was good (nothing special though), service was average.

Best restaurant in Haarlem to my opinion. € 29,50 for a 3-course menu. Food is magnificent. Super friendly staff. Been here 3 times already and it will definitely not be the last time. The place is always packed so do make a reservation
