Followed TA's recommendation and went here for lunch. The food was OK. I had the fish pizza and my wife had the salmon roll nothing special but not bad. The reason to go is for the view, it is spectacular. Watching the working port and the ships going by was very special. I have to give this place a 4... More

This restaurant is located at the end of a jetty in Ijmuiden harbour. I love the location since you look out on one side over the busy fishing port, while on the other side you have the entrance to the huge sea locks at the end of the ship canal leading to Amsterdam. Always something to watch. Service is friendly,... More

We enjoyed another fantastic meal at this little gem of a restaurant at the end of the North Sea Canal in Ijmuiden. We try to come here every time we are in Holland. We were not sure if the restaurant is under reasonably new management as the menu has changed since our last visit, it did not diminish our enjoyment.... More

nicely located in the port of IJmuiden, next to the ferry departure. For business people the good thing is that you are served quickly, so you don't lose time. Choose a table at the seaside.

This harbor side restaurant is just across the harbor from a steel plant(Tata Steel I guess). we were taken there in a large group by our Dutch hosts. They do have a menu in English luckily! There is wide selection of seafood. The restaurant has great views and you can watch the ships and boats passing by as you have... More

This restaurant is located near the ferry to Newcastle and (of course) the sea. Make sure you have a reservation for the best view. The food is good, nothing fancy and I have not tried the wine. I took as lunch a plate with smoked salmon, eel and shrimps with toast. Loved it!

From Newcastle to The Netherlands you sail to the city of IJmuiden. Close to the disembarking, at the top of the Harbour is The restaurant situated. You might drive directly to red light districts or coffeeshops, but you'd better have your first stop at "De Kop", have your excellent fish dinner and you're satisfied all the way. Coming back from... More

Impromptu meal after returning the Dutch Pedelec bikes we rented for a 4 day tour of North Holland. Ravenous after a lot of cycling and too tired to contemplate the walk home without a few drinks, we settled down for a starter - sashimi and bread basket - and a beer. The starter was so good and the beer so... More
