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

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
