About us:

Monsieur Rouge, a petite brasserie at one of the most beautiful hotspots in Haarlem. Located at river Spaarne, between the Gravesteenbrug (drawbridge) and the Melkbrug. Monsieur Rouge is small, intimate and very atmospheric.

We are proud of our concept, and we love our customers.
Monsieur Rouge has high standards. Both in service and the products.
There is a relaxed atmosphere and everyone is welcome.

We are distinctive in style. The decor is contemporary, warm, with a touch of chic. As the name suggests, French influences are reflected in the interior, the drinks and the menu. Monsieur Rouge serves a weekly changing main course. Our “Suggestion du Chef”. Drop by and see, taste and experience it.

The open bar and kitchen are very inviting to take a seat. Enjoy a drink and shared bite or dinner.

You can enjoy the terrace at Spaarne river, with a great view to the beautiful characteristic buildings, boats and the open water. Our terrace is recognizable by the red chairs! Come and enjoy the sun and let yourself be pampered. Monsieur Rouge also has a small terrace right becide the building. If the weather fails, it is still pleasant to stay here with plaids, pillows and heaters.

Our French Bulldog Sjef is a perfect host and welcomes you all,

A bientôt


Take a delicious cappuccino or espresso from Bocca roastery in Amsterdam. Look out over the water while enjoying the "petit déjeuner". Enjoy a fresh orange juice, yogurt with red fruit and granola, a baguette with scrambled egg or a freshly baked butter croissant.



Our French chef can make a delicious croque monsieur or madame (with fried egg) for you. His traditional French onion soup with gruyere crouton is also highly recommended. In addition, you can choose from two delicious French-style filled baguettes or from two Vietnamese "Bahn Mi". Vietnam used to be a colony of France, which is why these delicious baguettes with pickled sour vegetables and sriracha mayonnaise also fit very well into our concept. And if you don't feel like taking a sandwich, we also offer a variety of "bites to share". And your unch is complete with a matching wine or beer.


Bites & Diner

Monsieur Rouge has a small dinner menu. In addition to the main courses on the menu, Monsieur Rouge has a changing main course every two weeks. Our "suggestion du chef"! So if you come to dine at Monsieur Rouge more often, there is always a new dish to taste. Bavette, confit de canard and a vegetarian curry are our main dishes. For desert a moelleux (lava cake), dame blanche or a small cheese platter. And our bites to share are perfect to share with each other during drinks and as an appetizer.




Due to a covid infection among our staff, we are temporarily closed. We  put the health of our lovely guests first!

We hope to be able to welcome you again very soon, keep an eye on Instagram and the website.
