Great and sympathic service in a really nice bar. I had one of the best Burgers in my life with Jack Daniels sauce and my wife tried the ribs, she was impressed. It was a really nice evening and everything was delicious.

By far the place with the beat spareribs in downtown Haarlem. The place looks really nice and the staff is very friendly. Strongly recommend the ribs, they're absolutely delicious! Beware though.. the portion size is quite large :)
