Being vegetarian, Spanish restaurants aren't my first choice for cuisine. I was really impressed with the presentation and quality of the food at Patxaran, especially the vegetarian options. We went for the lunch special: 4 tapas + a drink for 12 euros, or something like that. It was well worth it. The staff were friendly, and were all fluent in... More

We had a veil stew tapas that tasted so bad, it was like cat food. After reporting this to the staff, they handled our complaint quite bad. They said the menu clearly stated what would be inside the dish and it's just taste and they didn't offer any excuse or refund. In contrast the service was quite alright up to... More

Dear Benjamin U, Thank you very much for your review. I am sorry you did not like the veal stew; it's a favorite for quite a few of our customers. I have not tasted cat food in my life, so I am not quite sure how to relate to your complaint. I will renew instructions for staff to report to... More

Went there a couple of times and decided to leave a review because today's meal was absolutely outstanding in comparison to the past two times where I almost decided not to eat there anymore. I love Spain and Spanish food and it is rare to find a place in Holland where tapas are creative yet authentic enough to be associated... More

Patxaran has an authentic Spanish (Bask) restaurant in the city center of Haarlem. The pinxtos are fresh made and for lunch we went for a choice of 4, a glass of wine included. The friendly owner explained that we could pick out form the bar and that his cooks worked hard to refresh. Several pinxtos were served with bread, some... More

Being Spanish i am usually very critical of Spanish restaurants outside Spain. They often serve bad quality and touristy kind of food. Well with Patxaran that is definitely not the case! We had a big variety of tapas and some main dishes and everything was absolutely delicious and truly Spanish. We all enjoyed wonderful sangria to accompany the meal. Service... More

Cooking with magic is the only way that you can make this flavorful of dishes. When you go here, you must try the roast pork w/ rosemary and tuna w/ avocado, both are out of this world delicious. With a lively atmosphere, fun and friendly staff, and great food you can't pass this one by.

We loved it. Good value too. We selected to mixed meat platter and chorizo with some wine and had a really lovely relaxed time. Good quality and particularly liked the olives in balsamic vinegar.
