There is a limited lunch menu. They charge extra 3 euros for the worst fries I have ever had, and 2.5 for a tiny little extra salad which is some leaves and half a cherry tomato. The burger patty was like a small ball so...More

We stopped here for a bowl of soup late afternoon on a cold day. They were quick, pleasant, willing to serve off the lunch menu though it was just past 5. There was an English language menu as well!

On a sunny Sunday, my friend showed me around in Haarlem. On Botermarkt, there are a lot of terraces and restaurants. We went for a drink and more drinks. Very attentive and fast service.

We went here for a dinner. What is good here is a variety of tasty beers (local and Belgium) and perfect spare ribs for indeed fair price! And of course, bitterballen and other Dutch starters.

The spareribs were really nice and it comes in 3 different flavour (sweet, spicy, and extra spicy). It cost 16 euros and it is free flow (just let the waiter know when you want to order more). Would definitely recommend if you like spareribs.

The choice when eating spareribs is often between quantity and quality, with restaurants sometimes serving two distinct products based on whether you opted for an all-you-can-eat-variety. Not here: I think these are some of the best ribs I've had in Europe, and they come accompanied...More
