Every time I travel to Haarlem I try to fit in a visit to Chez Bastijan and this week I went twice so a review is in order. The atmosphere, food and friendly service are always top class and tonight was no exception. The spicy pumpkin soup followed by pork stew was just the comfort needed on a cold and... More

Some tables at the outside, heated artificially, were available during "Haarlem culinair". It was well done, the service was smooth and pleasant, and the quality of the food was excellent. The pricing is reasonable.

I dined there with my mum when we were in Haarlem on holiday. The waitress was very knowledgable and friendly and her service was excellent. We had starters (goat cheese salad, and scallops) and mains (swordfish, and duck) and everything was excellent. Highly recommend this place, price was also very reasonable for the quality of the food and the service.

We were attracted to this restaurant by the 'specials' board which offered a couple of asparagus dishes. How lucky we were! The asparagus was great but the restaurant itself was a real pleasure to visit - characterful and good but fuss-free service. I particularly enjoyed the pre-dinner gin&tonic - possibly the best I've ever drunk.

We had dinner in this restaurant. The first time we went there the electricity was broken in the street this restaurant is located. Because of the service and the kindness the staff offered free drinks and starters already showed the great customer service. We returned to try out the menu - and no electricity fail in the street- the staff... More

A most enchanting restaurant, with special staff who look after you so well. Unhurried service, interesting individual decor, but especially delicious freshly cooked local food. We had cod with chanterelles and spinach, hare, beef stew.
