cozy spot in winter

Decent comfort food, lovely and cozy on a winter day. Not really a kid place, but nice to pop in for lunch or tea after a bit of shopping.

Was walking around looking for a nice meal given my long day of bike riding. Nothing in the area that was open looked interesting then I stumbled on this place making my way to the hotel. I'm so glad I stopped and eat.

The staff were super helpful after a long bike ride up from Amsterdam in helping me finding something yummy and filling for dinner. I went with the 400 gram steak and texel skummkoppe to wash it all down. It was fairly packed inside as it was a little cool but I braved the July evening weather and sat outside on... More

At Thursday evening we wanted to have a simple smal dinner..like an omelet or a club sandwiche. It seems they didn't serve that at anymore at 7 o'clock in the evening but we did want to see the menu and have drink. We decided just to have a drink when the waitress came she had a plate with bread with... More

Our greeting was friendly, the food was lovely and the atmosphere is comfortable. The menu is not in English, therefore it is not aimed at tourists so we assume it is good local food. The staff are really pleasant and they will help with translation if needed. Definitely a favourite place in Den Helder.

This is a fantastic place to eat. A fantastic menu with excellent steaks! I really do advise booking at weekends as it is a very popular restaurant and with celebration dining and parties. I highly recommend this restaurant.

There are not many restaurants in this lovely little town. But I really feel De Oude Gast could try harder..... Had a Caesar salad. Full full full of crostini .... Terrible. Ask for salad without the crostini...

We ate there twice. It wasn't bad, always full and I would recomend a reservation. Nightly specials were good.

We like to go there for the great food and good service. Very nice dishes, thoughtfuly presented and very tasty, and staff that ask you if you want your main course right after your starter or if you prefer to pause a bit. Only downside is that it is not always easy to get a table as they are popular.... More
