We were quite impressed with the menu choices, the quality of the food preparations, the wine and especially the deserts and service!! My wife and I ended up going here for dinner 3 times during our 1 week stay. I would say absolutely the best of the best!!!

All of my food was exceptional.... More

WE dine out regularly in Haarlem, usually in the centre, but we fancied a change so gave Sublime a try. We definitely weren't disappointed! Starting with octopus and a lovely fresh house salad, we then decided to try gambas and calf's liver, which is is cooked in a rush sauce with apple, bacon and red onion and flambeed in calvados....

A few changes in staff but the standards have got even better. A change of chef in the kitchen and the old menu brought back and made upto date. A winning... More

It was a cosy place, good food, and helpful staff. Tried it during one of the AH offers for a surprise tasting menu, and was wonderfully surprised. A must try!

Small place in the Kleine Houtstraat, food was good, value great, service could've been a bit better. Did enjoy 2 dinners in different settings. Wouldn't recommend to go here for big groups.

We come here more often, though it has been more than a year ago. The owner changed, though the most important man was still there. They try, and succeed, to make the experience a high class restaurant for a good price. Good food, well prepared, nicely served. One note: adjust your service to the people in front of you. Some...
