Every time we visit Scheviningen, a meal at Spijs is a must. We usually eat the surprise menu with the accompanying wine selection and have never been disappointed. By choosing to be "surprised" we get to enjoy whatever the chef has selected and the wine waiter takes great care to choose a wine to go with each course. We have... More

With the quality of a Michelin star restaurant, but a more relaxed atmosphere. Great food, friendly and quick staff. The portions are a bit small for big eaters, big enough if you're honost. The fish starter is perfect, also the main course and the dessert. Location is convenient, although the view is not great. However, the interior is great.

This restaurant is in a neat old house in Schevenigen, just in front of Tram #1. Lovely setting. We went for the special lobster 3 course menu. Nice house white wine from.. Spain. Good service, nice appetiser from the chef, and enjoyed the special lobster menu. My husband and son thought the courses were a bit small, but I found... More

Wow. They are only getting 5 whatever-they-ares because that's the maximum allowed. Superb chef, knowledgable and attentive staff and very reasonable prices. It doesn't get much better than this...

We got the tip by a local tram-driver. And it was really the best restaurant in town! The food's quality very high and the service excellent. Rare you'll find a waiter with such passion and knowledge! The wine selection is great aswell! You have to eat in the spijs!!!

Went here during Netherlands' National Restaurant Week in March 2014. We had the 4-course menu with wine selection. Everything, from the wonderfully-delicious-and well-prepared food, to the attentive and professional service of the staffs, as well as the cozy relaxing ambiance of the restaurant, made our evening to be very memorable. We had a starter course of smoked eel and fried... More

The restaurant is not located in front of the sea, that's why the food is excellent. We had a 4 course surprise menu for a bit more that 35€ per person (I'm not quite sure anymore). You can chose if you want a 3 course, 4 or 5 course surprise menu. We had as first starter 3 different small fish... More

Visited with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. Most of us ordered the 4 course menu with wine pairings. We had a vegetarian, a person who won't eat raw fish and a BOB who could only have a sip of each wine and they accommodated all of it. On our way into the restaurant a friend fell, cutting... More
