Decent restaurant, everything fresh made, sometimes you have to wait a bit too long, but the view is amazing from here.

This restaurant offers great views across Haarlem, including lots of things not seen from street level. We visited for lunch, which consisted of 2 large baguettes with ham, a beer and a lemonade for around 14.50 Euros. Recommended.

Lovely food, on the 6th floor of the building with a great view of Haarlem. The bread of the sandwich I had was really nice and soft, the only downside is that the smoothie didn't stay cold for long, I would recommend some optional ice...More
