The brightly lit dining room was only half full on a Friday evening despite the fact that it is one of the few Michelin-recommended restaurants in Haarlem.
The menus start from 33.5 Euro and wines are available from 23.5 Euro a bottle. We took the five course Jeunes Restaurateurs menu (50 Euro).
The amuse-bouche was forgettable, but the following two dishes of salmon and sea bass were close to superb with subtle flavours. The lamb with chickpeas was an interesting idea that paired well with the Bulgarian merlot. The Galloway with asparagus was equally pleasant. The dinner was completed with a wonderful dessert and a cup of espresso. The composition of each dish was creative, well thought out without being distractive.
Service clearly needed more attention with a young and somewhat sullen & grouchy staff.
The bill came to 140 Euro including wine and a bottle of mineral water.
