We went to this restaurant after avoiding it for a couple of years. It used to look very 90's inside and also the menu hadn't been updated for a very long time. Now we had a lovely surprise to find everything changed.
They have nice starters, good cocktails and also a nice variation of main dishes.
The main dish portions are not very big so if you do have a big appetite, one or two starters before the main dish are also a good idea.
It's also child friendly. We went there with our 18 month old and they had a chair for her, changing station in the bathroom and a few menu choices for kids.
All in all a nice experience. We will for sure go there again

I am from California and used to really good Mexican food. I'm afraid this Mexican dinner in Haarlem was a lot better than anything I've had in California for a long time. The dish was very distinctive and delicious. Called Burria. The waitress was just fun and helpful. Wonderful location with cozy outside seating.

Hello Dede

Thank you for this positive review. Good to hear that the Burria has fallen in taste.

Looking forward to see you next time.

Always a good place to go to. Yummy food and really good cocktails. Make sure you book in advance, though. Always busy.
