“great food, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I love the decorations, they had some very nice antique things, ambience is good, the steak, very delicious, and the service was really good. Not to mention the price is also very reasonable. I recommend anyone who's around Scheveningen to try this restaurant.

“The best ribs in The Hague”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

This place has the best ribs you can have in The Hague!

By the Scheveningen Boulevard and next to the Circus Theater Opera, Bistro Bontje offers a great taste experience with its 3 different flavours of marinated ribs and the big 500gr ribeye!

Value for money compared to the restaurants around the corner.

Rooney does a great job there with the service and the ambience is cozy during the winter indoors and refreshing during sunner with the scent of the sea in the open terrace.

Just what it needs to stimulate your appetite after a walk in the beach!

“Could be better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

I was looking forward toa dinner given the raving reviews. There gins indeed a nice atmosphere (although it was too quiet even for a Tuesday night). Most importanly, I though the food wasn't up to scratch... i ordered lamb medallions or something to that effect, but these didn't impress due to astonishing amount of fat that it came with. I could feel it for the next few days... Definitely, not again...

“Good food, great atmosphere, and awesome service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Very good ribs, especially if you like dry rub, and the steaks (biefstucks & tornadoes anyway) are excellent. Also, the mixed grill & mixed seafood. Service is really good (say hello to Rene), and it is very gezellig (cozy)
