We live in Haarlem for five years now and for some reason only heard just recently about Het Pakhuis. We decided to try it and loved it. It's not easy to find if you're ain't familiar in the city but just ask or look it up and you'll be fine.

The food was nice. Nothing extraordinary, just good food for a great price (every dich here is priced below 10 euro's). The staff was really nice too and knew what they were doing.
Due to their prices you can find allot of students here.

Go here if you are looking for a cheap meal that tastes like an expensive one.

P.S.
I've read some reviews that they serve "the real Dutch food", this is simply not true. The food is good but there is nothing Dutch about it.

Enjoy!

A cosy place in the heart of Haarlem. We were attracted because it was looking really local and in fact no other tourist was there. The atmosphere was lively but not noisy and the decor simple and pleasing. The service is good and courteous but should be a little quicker. The Menu is not large but gives enough choice of soups, vegetables, fish and meat.
We had onion soup, that was great, sole: also good. The mixed meat on a spit, instead, according my italian taste, wasn't so great. I don't think that the beef cut they use is the best one to be grilled and i didn't like the peanuts sauce, but this probably it's just because I'am italian, we use to dress grilled meet only with salt pepper and extra-virgin olive oil.
Prices are really reasonable.

This restaurant happened to be about 50 metres from our rented apartment so we decided to give it a go and were very pleasantly surprised. The emphasis seems to be a simple menu and value for money and both criteria were fully accomplished. The food was simple and very tasty and the service was really excellent. Our waitress spent about ten minutes talking to us at the end of our meal about Ireland where we're from and how much she would love to visit there. The restaurant was nicely laid out and the Saturday night that we were there seemed to have a majority of mainly young couples as customers. Overall it's a very pleasant restaurant.

We stumbled upon this nice little restaurant during a stroll around Haarlem and were attracted by the attractive menu choices and reasonable prices, plus the good smells wafting out the door onto the narrow street. I had one of the two daily fish plates and my companion had the mixed meat, both with vegetables and a bowl of chips to share. Everything was fresh and tasty. Service was friendly and helpful. Inside is non- smoking, another plus!

The restaurant is large and simple, the food typical dutch: really nice soup and salads for start, and great main course (vegetarian, fish and meet ) served with salads, vegetables and the unfailing french fries!!!!
Everyday they have plates of the day.
Really nice also the desserts.
Everything at good price!!!!
I loved a lot that dinner.
