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

Waterproof is a enjoyable place with very good food and an extensive wine list. The menu is not that extensive, but whatever is served is done in a very imaginative way. The service is very friendly and attentive.

We arrived at 1900 hrs without a reservation, not smart, even on a Thursday, with a restaurant that is so highly rated. We were greeted warmly, but told if we wanted to eat at Waterproef we would have to leave by 2000 hrs and only be able to have a main course, or come back tomorrow. Since this was our... More

We had a lovely tabel for 3 at the waterfront. Nice selection of the menu. My sister and I both had 2 starters and a desert, no problem at all. Lovely service, very cheerful and dear, but never too much. Very good selection of wines.

The food was to die for. The service was excellent. Although it was very busy the servers took plenty of time to explain the various menu choices. We sat upstairs with a lovely view ofthe harbor. My dinner companion had a beer brewed in the Hague, "Kompaan" that was very tasty and I a wonderful housewine. One of the unusal... More

If you are looking for a nice restaurant with perfect food & wine, look no further as this is it. The hosts Yves & Lendl give you a perfect night out and make sure your table gets full attention. The interior is really nice and they have an enormous amount of wine (over 1.000). Every month also a monthly menu.... More

This restaurant is really special. You have a beautiful view on the harbor of Scheveningen while having your lunch - and later in the year - your diner. The food is excellent, the wine card is quite extensive, we enjoyed the choice. The service is sometimes a bit slow. While making a reservation, make sure you are close to the... More

We had dinner at Waterproef with a group, and received a set menu for all of us. The wines served with first and main course were excellent, as was the food. Everything was well prepared and well presented. However, the portions were so small that part of our group left hungry. Also, it took avery long time for the food... More

Food is fresh with an element of originality in its preparation (Thai influence), however, for the price, I was expecting something more elaborated. Service was slow, even though friendly. You need to be tolerant with dogs, as they are allowed (2 of them during our dinner) - frankly speaking, I am not and found it unhygienic. Wine list is impressive,... More

Having been here a few times before we were really surprised by "The best off" menu presented to us. Our favourite the mix of fish and slow cooked meat on a rucola puree really was amazing. The service is michelin star wise but informal enough to have a very pleasant time. I would encourage people to dine in this place.... More
