This was the second or third time that we ate here with the family and as before we really enjoyed the experience, from the minute you walk in the staff make you feel very welcome and look after you throughout the meal.... I would call the decor stylish but 'modern' rustic, not glitchy at all, no rowdy groups of diners... More

Frede parking, good service, places inside and outside are great, one of the better spots in the harbour. Try lunch menu with the wine suggestions, great!

We had a surprisingly warm welcome when we arrived two minutes before the alleged closing time on the door. But the restaurant was still full of diners and it was a warm summer night, so maybe they were relaxed about timings. The menu is relatively short, which to my mind is always a good sign of things to come. And... More

First the good; staff were polite, competent and by any standard very good. They were knowledgable about the menu and the wines that were on offer. The menu is good, with a chef's menu (Table d'hote) and an al la carte selection. This is where things went wrong - it became clear the kitchen was geared to support the chef's... More

I was invited by a friend to dine here. Me being from Belgium, he knew how important it was to make sure I had a good dinner experience.......... It took me half an hour to decide which wine to drink, the list was just so long I felt like I was missing out on a good wine....... :) Food, wine... More

I have been here numerous times and absolutely adore the place. Excellent food, beautiful wines, comfortable dining room and the best place to sit outside along the harbour during the warmer days of the year. The service is always impeccable and courteous. Just great!

This is a top quality restaurant. Good wine and great food. Small portions, so not for all you can eat fans ;) This costs more than average, but when you can afford it, go there and try it!

Hi, it has been the 3rd times we have been to this restaurant on the Scheveningen Harbour (between Mediterraneo and the Belgian place). Easy to park, and chic essential ambience with the warm touch of the owner and his team (the kitchen is open to see....) always professional with a smile. Food is excellent, the Menu' changes with the season... More
