I am from California and used to really good Mexican food. I'm afraid this Mexican dinner in Haarlem was a lot better than anything I've had in California for a long time. The dish was very distinctive and delicious. Called Burria. The waitress was just fun and helpful. Wonderful location with cozy outside seating.

Always a good place to go to. Yummy food and really good cocktails. Make sure you book in advance, though. Always busy.

Very nice atmosphere with friendy staff and good service. They can serve 45 people without a problem. The set menu was great (we could choose one from different set menus before the dinner, and each menu offered more options to choose from on the site), the food was delicius. Local people like it, I would't hesitate to go back.

Was happy to have booked a table upfront. Although waiting at the bar wouldn't have been that bad. Anyway the food is of a good quality and the staff is nice. A good experience all together.

I say wee as when we arrived the place was packed... not that big an issue as there was a bar we could wait at. After being seated we were offered English menus straight away, that saved us the embarrassment of asking for them. I have to say I was looking at the chillies on the menu until the ribs... More

The restaurant is located next to the cathedral. Unfortunately there is no possibility to sit outside. The ambience is fine and so is the food, but nothing special.
