Fine seafood dining, unpretentious setting

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.

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

This restaurant has excellent food, but the real highlight is the sommelier. With an extensive knowledge about the many surprising wines they serve, for example we had an Indian wine as a dessert wine, he helped make a good evening great. Wonderful place for a romantic evening or to enjoy with friends. If it’s warm enough make sure you reserve... More

If you are in the area I can genuinely recommend Waterproef restaurant in the harbor. The food was wonderful, although the menu wasn't extensive, the quality was outstanding. The seats on the harbor were wonderful and best of all were the gin and tonic drinks prepared with and slice of cucumber.

I would recommend everyone to have dinner here sometime. I visited the restaurant with my family in september. We had a lunch menu of the chef, which consisted of 2 or 3 courses. The entree, main course and dessert were all very good. The food was well prepared, the servants were really nice and the view outside, and there is... More
