A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Dit restaurant is al bijna 40 jaar een begrip in Haarlem. Eigenaar en chef Jan Stroes begon ooit als kok bij het restaurant en nam het in 2003 over. Dit restaurant wordt regelmatig liefkozend ‘de huiskamer van Haarlem’ genoemd. En gezien de knusse sfeer en sfeervolle roze inrichting met verwijzingen naar Gaudi en Barcelona is dat geheel begrijpelijk. Dat de meeste van de personeelsleden ook al jaren (sommige zelfs al 12 jaar!) hier werken helpt daar zeker bij. Bij BastiJan schuif je aan voor een gezellige en betaalbare Bourgondische maaltijd. Denk aan een Chateaubriand of een coppa van wild zwijn. Wil je liever iets lichters? Neem dan een salade. Zowel gasten die lekker lang willen tafelen als gasten die een snelle hap willen komen doen zijn welkom bij Jan. Niet zo gek dus dat BastiJan veel vaste gasten heeft.

INSIDER tip

Tip van bySam: op mooie dagen is het wel heel erg goed toeven aan één van de tafeltjes aan de gevel. Lekker mensen kijken terwijl je geniet van wat lekkers te eten en te drinken.

    Small restaurant which has been open over 37 years. My wife and I shared a starter which consisted of 4 small starters each one was different and all of them were really tasty. We both had wild boar stew for our main course and we both agreed that it was one of the best stews we had eaten!

    BastiJan’s is one of my favourite restaurants in Haarlem. Great food with friendly and efficient service. I would recommend taking the daily Chefs menu. It’s great value at 34.50 euro.

    Nice little restaurant in the food street of old Haarlem. Waitress very attentive. Food was excellent. The chef served a limoncello on the house as digestif. As only my husband took the four course surprise menu we got the soup of the day as interim for free. Very recommendable.

    Outstanding boutique restaurant. Small, lovely Bohemia meets Art Nouveau place with a small but delicious menu. Impeccable service (Danielle was amazing, informative and graceful). Simple but super delicious food. We had a truly fabulous experience.

    Service was excellent and food was outstanding. Swordfish was good, but the beef stew was exceptional. The goat cheese salad was fabulous Limited number of tables and a little noisy. But an excellent meal.
