Restaurant week at Spijs

The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The service was not exceptional as the server didn't even know the special dinner offer during restaurant week. The room was extremely loud.

Came to this restaurant after several recommendations. Location is quite unique, in the, thankfully, original part of Scheveningen. The building dates back to the 1880's. As it was not very busy all the guests were seated in the 'serre'. Decor is quite nice, shame about the TV as a substitute for a real fire place; they could have come up... More

And to put the icing on the cake the head waiter (I believe it is) have fantastic knowledge of the different wines he select for you following... More

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...

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
