Restaurant BastiJan

In 2003, restaurant Bastiaan in the culinary street, Lange Veerstraat, closed the doors and made room for the chef Jan Stroes.

Jan, who had been working as a chef in Bastiaan’s kitchen for years, took over the name of the restaurant with the creative change of one simple letter. BastiJan was opened.

Imagine yourself in a romantic setting with a mix of Art Deco, Jugendstil and beautiful images. Our enthusiastic service will provide you with a drink and the tastiest olives from Haarlem while waiting for your meals.

Enjoy together at BastiJan the tender chateaubriand or taste the fried prawns with garlic, which have been the specialty of the chef for 35 years.
You can also be surprised by a changing four-course menu that the chef will put together especially for you.

Prefer a complete vegetarian meal? At BastiJan everything is possible and your food is prepared with care, love and above all, a lot of taste.
