If you want to eat nice fried fish, prawns or squid(calamari), you should go. The portions are almost US-style for 13.50 Euros you get at least 350gr of fried fish and chips to go with it. The oven-baked mussels with cheese are nice and reasonably priced 8.95 Euros. The calamari are also very good and dead cheap 5.75 Euros (without... More

Today we went in the evening to have Dinner at Simonis at the Habour. We went already a couple of times there and it is always great. The Restaurant is always very crowded. The portion size is HUGE. for 13,5€ you get french Fries and 3 Fish fillet. Everything fresh and tasty. Of course it is not the most healthy... More

Once you visit Scheveningen, go for a lunch at "Simonis aan de Haven". The seafood is very good and... very important: fresh. In season go for the herring. It's always rather busy but the setting and atmosphere is very particular. Situated near the old harbouw of Scheveningen. So before going to the beachside and the boulevard, visit "Simonis aan de...

The terass outside was very cozy and had a nice atmosphere to it - while the inside deco in my opinion was little bit outdated. It was my first time here (I've eaten many times at other Simonis) and was a little bit shocked by the prices, they felt expensive to me until the food came out! There was so... More

Had the opportunity to eat here during a recent business trip to The Hague. The seafood is incredibly fresh (The baby herring a must when in season). The setting is informal and atmospheric. Great spot.

We found this place by chance. later I've seen some road signs to direct you to the restaurant, but we did not have a clue when we walked in. Looking from outside, I mention to my husband I would rather not stay. On the inside, is so vivid and busy, a bit like a bingo room (not that I have... More

Heard about the place before but this was our very first time and jeez... I was impressed ! Not only by the place, in and outdoors, but by the whole set up. The food/fish was good and fresh, nothing to complain about. However I would want to point out 2 things when going to eat there... Firstly, as you need... More

Usually I get my "kibbeling" (fried cod fish) from another place in Scheveningen, but they were closed due to a rebuilding. My son from Berlin visited me and wanted kibbeling, so I went to Simonis, because it was always packed, so I thought the quality would be good. The price seemed 50% higher than at the place I normally go,... More
