Chez Bastijan

Reviewed By GiojaA - Haarlem, The Netherlands

I recently moved to Haarlem and searched TripAdvisor for the best local restaurants. Chez Bastijan had such good reviews so booked for a Saturday night with a friend and it didn't disappoint. The service was of a very high standard, the specials were explained and wine recommended. Our mouths were watering just looking at other diners meals and we had the chateaubriand (for two). It was amazing. Beautifully cooked to our taste, which was rare and priced fairly. The ambience was lovely with couples, friends and families all present. I couldn't fault it and will definitely make this a regular dining spot.

Metzo lunch en diner

Reviewed By flyngourmet - Fayetteville, Georgia

Charming little restaurant in the heart of Haarlem. Warm and inviting with a great atmosphere on a chilly night. I had the Haddock and my a pasta dish with a salad. The Haddock was wonderfully cooked to perfection on a bed of tasty risotto. Thr flavors from the risotto were subtle enough to let the fish shine. The presentation was superb. My wife's pasta was cooked to perfection with a wonderful light taste. The salad was an adventure to eat as you dug down through the layers different vegetables and things kept appearing making for a great salad. No problems figuring out the menu even in Dutch. Just ask Amber to help you, and she'll more than happy to go into detail about the dishes.

As nearly as i could tell, this was a locals type place. You could clearly see that interaction with customers was based on familiarity. A very pleasant atmosphere with wonderfully prepared dishes. When in Haarlem and seeking a significant change up from Dutch fair it's hard to imagine a better choice. Highly recommended.

International menu changes on a regular basis and you can put together your chosen 3-courses menu. In the back it's most of the times I've been a bit quieter (noise-wise). Very central location.

Dodici

Trendy 'small dinner' restaurant. Espresso, winebar. 7 days a week a 'dolce vita' experience with breakfast, lunch and dinner or just for a drink.

Reviewed By Chitra28 - Almere, The Netherlands

We had a quick stop at our favorite restaurant again, during Haarlem Jazz Festival, we could get a table without reservation, which is quite unique and again had a great dinner...
Super tasty food and great wines.. the freshly made scroppino's are also highly recommendable like the restaurant!

Landgoed Groenendaal

Reviewed By Silviabyscrapbookcat - Kudelstaart, The Netherlands

I used to love this restaurant: beautiful location, nice food; have been there a few times, also to celebrate special occasions. A couple of years ago we went there to celebrate Christmas; it was so nice that any restaurant we have been for Christmas afterwards was disappointing. Santa was waiting for you outside, you would get a drink at the entrance and be walked to your table in a warm atmosphere; there was music and you could even choose songs; food was excellent. So we decided to go back this year. But there was no Santa, no welcome drink, no music and the atmosphere was cold in every single meaning. The table was at the end of a corridor connected to the main door. When it is below zero outside, not very nice place.... Food too average for the price. Overpriced for what we got. Very disappointed. Not going back, at all.

Luca Ristorante Pizzeria

Reviewed By Charles K - Haarlem, The Netherlands

Not in the touristy area, but accross the river Spaarne at like 10 min walk from Central Square Grote Markt this place is. Really worth a walk.
Close to the only entrygate Haarlem has still left, looking towards the city of Amsterdam (Amsterdamse Poort.. Amsterdam Gate) this is a hidden gem.
Great food, lots of choices of pizza, nice housewine, good service.
Everything we tried was tasty.
Certainly worth a visit.

What a great pleasure to visit this restaurant! Delicious Australian mixed with Asian fusion food. Choose the 6 course surprise menu and every course is a huge pleasure to taste, see and experience especially with the well chosen wines!
Excellent staff! Great professionals and very kind!
My favourite in Haarlem and surrounding.

Cheval Blanc

Reviewed By Martijn T - Overveen, The Netherlands

Le Cheval Blanc serves great food. Delicate, surprising, exquisitely prepared. Combinations you would never think of yourself, and prepared in such quality that I will never be able to prepare myself. In one word; Great! Special feature of the restaurant is the 'BOB-arrangement'. A very small glass of wine to accompany every course, specifically for the driver that wants to drink but also wants to drive home safely.
And this all in a very nice atmosphere. Staff is good, always available but not dominant.
