Given the big group we had, we booked the separate dining room on the first floor of the restaurant. We were welcomed with a drink in an informal setting. The set menu we booked upfront was excellent as were the wines that came along with the menu. The service had the right touch / balance of formal/informal and was very... More

I have eaten at ML for many years, beginning with their small restaurant near Kerkplein. Been there with customers, colleagues and close friends. Delighted in them getting a Michelin star. Last night I returned with an old friend after five years absence. The cooking, the service - out of this world. A big step up from what was already a... More

My wife and I had dinner here.Reception was friendly and professional. We had a table in a corner, from where we had a view of part of the restaurant,which had a great atmosphere. We ordered a 6 course dinner, which we think most patrons of this restaurant do, mostly because the " a la carte" possiblities are practically the same.... More

All courses were just fantastic. The meat was unbelievably tender. I like the small portions, you just enjoy the taste more. Will definetly return.

I went to this restaurant with my boyfriend. We both loved the warm and relaxed atmosphere, though I expected the customers would bother to dress a bit fancier in such a restaurant. There were people sitting in their jogging pants and sneakers, ruins the atmosphere a bit. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. They explain everything they bring you... More

Rather uninteresting food, and not worth a m.star. Some of the crossover attempts really didn't work. Generally good, but nothing to write home about. We also had a bad experience with the booking.

It was meant to be a birthday present to our daughter and that is what it came out to be. A great birthday present. One of those presents that you will always remember and the memory of which will always bring warm feelings of joy and happiness. They do know how to cook and they really have a way to... More

We enjoyed a celebration dinner at ML. The restaurant has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and weather permitting one can enjoy dining alfresco in a lovely courtyard. They chef accommodated a glutenfree variation of his menu, which was great! We all enjoyed the selection of dishes in the chef's menu, they were delicate and wonderfully presented. With the exception of... More

The restaurant is based in one of the many historical buildings in the lovely city of Haarlem. Not as formal as we expected it to be, same goes for the service, pretty relaxed but very smooth. We've enjoyed a six course meal, all smaller bites but all together more than enough... highlight for me was the Snickers 2016 dessert which... More
