There was nothing intrinsically wrong with the restaurant or the food, it is a middle of the road restaurant, middle of the road service, middle of the road food and middle of the road price.

Service wasn't exactly friendly, but nor was it bad, waitresses were good but didn't really smile or make us feel welcome, but they were efficient.

The food is average in terms of price for Haarlem, quality was just about OK, we have Steak which was pretty nice, also Grandma's Fish Dish which was basically Fish in a cheese sauce, this was OK but a little boring and certainly under seasoned.

Overall it was OK hence the 3 out of 5 scores.

We had actually made a reservation elsewhere, but because the other place did not have good service we ended up leaving. Then we ran into this place as it had good choices for vegetarian as well as other. Very happy with the food, excellent steak and fries, great desert and appetizers. Service was just perfect!! Very good.

When we went to find a restaurant in the center of Haarlem on Saturday night, every one was full, but this one had 2 empty tables. We took one, but we found out why this place was less popular. The food was average and the service confused. After we managed to get the attention of a waiter to give our order, we waited a while, but then we were offered someone else's food. After a longer wait, we finally got our food.
