“Great fish, casual dining.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We have been eating at Simonis for many years and have never been disappointed. The fish is fresh and delicious and portions are huge!

“Yummy, affordable and polite personal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The squids were just delicious and the location is just perfect - like 100-120 meters from the sea. It was really lovely to sit with my wife and daughter and for an hour to dive into their yummy dishes testing :-)

“Just a fish and chip shop”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Don't bother, the food is mediocre and the "service" is almost non existent. We barely ate our dinners and left. Never again.

“Yummy, great location, helpful people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

The squids and perch were just delicious! Actually we've been to the restaurant that is located right on the seashore but I just couldn't find it being listed here. The waitress was exceptionally helpful and even provided me some hot water to mix with cold still water for my daughter to drink! Thank you!

“Rude personnel !!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I like the seafood here but the personnel in the restaurant is really rude!
My friend had her mineral water bottle in her bag and it was just under the table.
The one old woman (personnel) warned her that she is not allowed to drink from her bottle. Ok, but she did not drink and she had no intention to drink from it. She knows well how to behave in a restaurant. And the second disaster was that the woman warned us not to share from our big plates.
The plates are big and two friends are less eaters and wanted to share but she was strictly against that idea. All in all, i can say is that the seafood here is good but the staff is highly rude and disrespectful and this does not give any joy!

The third thing is that they do not have English cards and they cannot explain you well whats the offer is. At the end you get something unwanted.

I hope they improve it and i can recommend you the Simonis Seafood Restaurant at the harbour (Haven) in Scheveningen!
