I had dinner in Restaurant Fris last week. My initial impression was that it was a little pretentious but I was wrong. Before the meal nice little entrees are served and bread and the staff are extremely nice and very attentive. As per most French restaurants courses are not large but opting for the A La Carte menu I was full after a starter and main course both of which were delicious. The staff are very knowledgeable about a good wine to go with the food. The decor is lovely. It is slightly off the beaten track for Haarlem but well worth the visit and if you want a special treat I would highly recommend it. Good food, lovely staff and a very pleasant ambience.
