We had an nice lunch and cold beers while sitting in the sunshine. Waitstaff was nice and they had some special for lunch. We ate, lingered, people watched, listened to church bells, talked about how clean Haarlem was and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this restaurant. There is also indoor seating. Excellent location.

We had a great lunch here, right on the Grote Markt in Haarlem. I had beef carpaccio (smoked beef sandwich) and my wife had a smoked mackerel salad sandwich. Both were very good. We shared a side of fries which was a big portion - more than we could eat. Mayonnaise is traditionally served with fries here which is a... More

Its a coasy little coffee shop in the Grote Markt Square. We went there to have a quick coffee and then tour around but instead we had 2 coffees each and did't want to leave. I was day dreaming as I was sipping my coffee. It made me dream about how it was hundreds of years ago, people being hanged... More

We popped into this place for a late lunch after marveling at the Christian Müller organ in the Grote Kerk. The Square is very clean, well kept, well lit, excellent service and delicious food. Wow, delicious food. Friendly atmosphere. Happy staff. I got a mug of fresh mint tea and their Pompoen-kokos soup. (Pumpkin coconut). I thought I'd died and... More

The day we went the local market was on in the square, we had lunch at one of their restaurants and the food was good, service good and friendly and in the background some band was providing music, really lovely atmosphere. The local church was lovely to visit and the little shops quaint. I love Amsterdam and go back regularly... More

I felt good just by the interior atmosphere of the place. I taste the 'The Square Saté' and it was good. Homemade French fries. Also tasted the sandwich 'Geitenkaas uit de oven' , which was good also.
