Erg goed en original!
Echt een top avond gehad. Heerlijk eten en prachtig servies. Fijne bediening, niks is te veel. Namen echt de tijd.
We hebben genoten en komen graag (als het weer mag) terug.
Always afraid of Michelin restaurants for being very formal. This is not a case. Everything very elegant but cosy. Food perfectly prepared exactly as it should be – tasty and beautiful. Service well organized – we could talk with many waiters, so you get the feeling of being hosted by a friendly family. Last but not...

Service well organized – we could talk with many waiters, so you get the feeling of being hosted by a friendly family. Last but not least – perfect wine presented with elegance and knowledge. We will return for sure.

About Restaurant Olivijn*
In the most beautiful building of Haarlem, a former bank of loan, you will find restaurant Olivijn*. A visit to Olivijn is possible for any occasion such as a luxurious dinner, cosy lunch or business meeting. Experience the charm by the unique combination of a restaurant and art gallery under one roof. Decorated with deep blue colours and works of art. How about tasting the aperitif in the art gallery upstairs?
SVH-Meesterkok Menno Post (known from De Bokkedoorns**) and Saskia de Wal Post are the proud owners of restaurant Olivijn*. Full of enthusiasm she dedicates herself every day to give guests a unique experience. They work with a menu and à la carte, but Menno Post itself is a walking menu. Pleasantly he visits the tables to ask what people would like to try.
They mainly work with organic products. The fish, for example, comes from the North Sea and the meat is from Dutch soil. Menno likes to let his honesty resound in his working methods and makes sure that every ingredient gets the right attention. French flavours can be considered elegant, refined and subtle. All senses are stimulated by Olivine.
Sommelier Milton Verseput and Maître Patrick Reijnders ensure that the guest is not lacking anything. Choice of fine wines that perfectly match the dinner. With a lot of passion, fun and above all sense of humour, the staff ensures that it is an evening to remember!
The restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star in 2018. They received 16.5 Gault&Millau points and are ranked 89 in the Lekker top 100, 2020.
