We had a very nice dinner here: good food, fair price, friendly service. Good house wine, too. Busy but cosy place right in the center of our beautiful city of Haarlem. No reservations possible, go there and ask if they can hold a table for you of the next one leaves.

Needless to say we had dinner here 3 of the 4 nights in Haarlem. great food, great service and great view of the passers by at all times. It is a stones throw away from the Grand Frans Hals Hotel where... More

We are regular visitors to La Plume and are very rarely disappointed (and if we are, its because it's so busy, we can't get a table!). On Thursday we visited and had a really lovely meal. Starting with Steak Tartare and fresh oysters for the two of us, we then both had a steak, which is served on a bed... More

Casual friendly atmosphere but a bit cramped and noisy which led to waitress misunderstanding one of the orders so steak was brought instead of tuna. Generous portions and tasty, reasonably priced. Wine was good but from Chile or Spain, not French.

Our host in Haarlem suggested this place for a simple meal. It was anything but by my home town standards. We started with perfectly truffled steak tartare served with hearty bread slices. Giant white asparagus with ham and chopped hard boiled eggs were covered in a buttery sauce ideal for coating rosemary potato chunks. Duck salad with huge shrimp chips... More

We had read about this restaurant, a local place. We had biked and walked most of the day and came hungry. We were not disappointed. Food was good, service excellent. We had the pork satay and spareribs with a small rocket salad. All very well prepared and served.

Started as a quick stop to get out of the rain, enjoying a couple of Irish coffees. The surrounding tables were raving about the ribs, we were intrigued enough to try them. The ribs were great and the service was excellent.

I took my visiting mother, my husband, and my sleeping baby to eat dinner at La Plume. The place is rather small and packed with people, with hardly any space left to move around. It can be romantic, though. But if you don't like a cramped-like space, it's probably better to go there for early dinner. The foods were tasty,... More
