Located in the main street in De Koog, we dined here on our first night on Texel. What a disappointment it was. We were promptly seated by the abundance of personnel at the entrance. The interior of the restaurant was cosy, room enough for every table. Several different waitresses took our order, brought our food, cleared the table, brought the... More

The outstanding thing about this restaurant was the service. Our waiter was excellent and his English amazing. It also helped that they had the menus in English! The food was very good and the portions are enormous. Three of us had the smoked fish and shrimp starter, one had soup. The produce was lovely and fresh. For mains we had... More

We have just come back from four glorious days on Texel and are keen to visit again. However, this restaurant was our only disappointment on the island. Based on the recommendations on this site we visited for an evening meal on a busy Saturday. In their favour we were promptly seated albeit in a grim and dismal corner. The food... More

This restaurant makes the difference by combining a good menu with plenty of choices with great service. Restaurant was packed on this Saturday night, but the service was there at the right time and the food came along at the right pace. Some more variety in the wine list would be a good addition. Certainly a place I would go... More

Fantastic take on mosterd soep with the bite of the gerookte zalmen mixing in with the mustard and a few garnel for interest. Partner had Schinken, kaas en ui pannekoeken which was nicely caramelised. Service was swift, polite and genuinely jolly. Nice windbreaked terrace on the main winkel straat...Dorp. Just down from the post huys and it's adjacent intriguing art... More

If you want to have some nice food in de koog, this is a good location. Also do not forget to try the local Texel beer. A must if you like beer!

We had some very good seafood here. The service was good and the price is right! So we recommend you trying Vogelhuis Oranjerie

We had a quick lunch here at the end of our stay on Texel. The menu is quite extensive and well priced. The kids got a very cool soft toy as part of their kids meal (a super souvenior). The jumpy castle and playground just off the big sunny terrace meant we could sit and relax and enjoy the sunshine.... More

We've just spent a great weekend on Texel Island with my fiancee. At this time of the year (November - off season) the summer-holiday island was clearly deserted. There were only a handful of good restaurants open, but we've been lucky enough to find the Vogelhuis Oranjerie in de Koog. Food is great, the restaurant looks really neat, and there... More

On Texel, this is one of the few professional restaurants. The quality is the highest we found on the island. The atmosphere is less impressive (there are many very nicely decorated restaurants on Texel, where the food comes on the second place), but the food is close to perfect. Coffee and ice cream are perfect as well. For about 40... More
