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

We had been strolling through the city centre of Den Helder and this was sort of our last hope/option: nice ambiance, the food was good, had a lovely steak and my bf had a chicken tandoori. Yes, it's a bit cramped and noisy, but the waiters were very friendly and they were responding directly at questions. Our food arrived in... More

So let's start to be absolutely honest: if you are looking for a Michelin strar restaurant then don't go here. However if you are just looking for good food, service with a smile, a menu that can be adjusted on the spot to meet your needs and this all at an incredible reasonable price - this is the place to...

We had dinner here and the staff was just lovely. The food was great. We both had the Chicken Diablo and it was a large serving of chicken in a lightly spiced sauce and we really enjoyed it. It came with salad, vegetable and potato. We look forward to going back and trying more of their dishes and enjoying the... More

Had a steak. Poor quality meat and hard to thew. Very cramped and noisy restaurant. Only menu'es in Dutch. Classic Dutch... More

I have visited this place twice and will definitely be back. The atmosphere makes you feel welcome and the waitresses are always smiling. Their rump steak is good and there is all the garniture and chips you can wish for.
