While in Haarlem, we took the opportunity to have two dinners here. The first night we had the seafood and Irish beef burger, the second night the chicken with ravioli and the burger. Needless to say, the burger, made from beef from Ireland, was very popular and served with the fries. The seafood and chicken were also well prepared, although... More

The location on the main square was superb! We sat outside under the heat lamps and soaked up the ambience! I had the black bean oysters to start which were sensational! I then had the cod which was the best cod I'd ever had. Cooked to perfection!

Arrived at 8pm we just wait 30s before getting a table. They do not take any reservation. You have the choice to eat indoor or outdoor. We have decided to stay indoor. The restaurant itself is small so it can be very very noisy. We went as a couple and were obliged to shout almost all the time. Definitely not... More

I enjoyed dinner at an outside table, a saxophone across the square as an unexpected serenade. The current exchange rate for the euro against the dollar makes La Plume a very good value. Attentive service and frites with every entree. I had a chicken dish, an Italian inspired stewed dish on a bed of some ravioli, snow peas, and sun... More

Visited this restaurant last night as it always looks full. We were not disappointed. Kids food especially (ribs) was outstanding and makes such a welcome change to offerings of chicken nuggets!! We had chicken breast with ravioli which was delicious, and a Spanish stew, again lovely food. Service was fast and friendly. Felt this was very fairly priced and excellent... More

Had the best oysters at La Plume. The waiters attention to details was excellent and he even observed that I spoke English and replaced my Dutch menu with an English one. Seems to be popular among the travelling crowd and in the heart on Haarlem!

Nice little restaurant in a lovely area. Very close to the Frans Haals hotel, so very central. Some seating outside with blankets etc but ate indoors. Service was very friendly and quick, at a very reasonable price. The satay is really good and worth a try but all the starters and mains were excellent. Our group of 3 were all... More

A number of tables outside but on this occasion we selected to eat indoors. The service was very prompt, we didn't have to wait long for the pre meal drink. The waiter was very attentive and the meal was cooked and presented well, prices were pretty standard for restaurants in the area.

I have visited this restaurant at least once a year for more than 20 years now and have never been disappointed. Good food (the sate is my absolute favorite) and nice staff. The atmosphere is also great. I will definitely return.
