“Typical Noordwijk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

As inhabitant of Noordwijk we like to go to the beach and have a coffee or something more spiritual after a long walk along the beach. So we enter "De Zeemeeuw".
Even for a dinner of lunch we like this place, Doesn't matter what time you come along of what the wheater is outside.

“Very Impressive.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

First time here and I have to say I loved the building and the staff were friendly and attentive.

The beach views are just fabulous but sadly the food does not match up with the overall place, our main course was overcooked and dry and I would have expected better from this restaurant.

However, notwithstanding this I would go back again because the place is really nice and I would give them the benefit of the evening as it was very busy there and we also were with a party of 11 persons.

Remember to book as it gets really busy and as I already said the setting is perfect.

“Great ambiance in a cosy quirky restaurant with stunning sunsets and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Visited Noordwijk aan Zee restaurant as we been to the Keukenhof flower festival which is not far away. We wanted to see the Dutch coastline so did the short drive away and saw the dunes and then the long promenade with many restaurants. there was also a classic car parade with the cars decorated in flowers plus a live band on the promenade. In front of the Hotel van Oranje on the beach you will find the Restaurtant Strandpaviljoen. It has a large terrace and looked inviting. Inside it was very busy as it was Saturday evening but what a cosy fantastic atmosphere inside. Reservations are a must as it was full, We had a drink on the terrace outside whilst we waited for our table. The most fantastic sunsets here over the North Sea. They even give you a rug in case you are cold. Great for a drink but too cold to eat outside on the Terrace in april. We had a wonderful meal, sea food starter, sea bass and pudding. Well presented and good food. The husband and wife team are the owners and are constantly trying to make their guests feel contented. The washrooms are clean which is a good sign and the ambiance of the restaurant with all tables facing the sea is well designed. This is a must visit just to see the sunsets...and of course Keukenhoff close by

“Beach, Storm and health weather”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I visited on lunchtime just before the greatest bulb field show in the middle of April this niece and cosy restaurant at the beach in Noordwijk A little bit of sun, lots of wind and a great lunch. Take just the club sandwich Zeemeeuw and the Focaccia Tuna for your partner. Just enjoy a glass of Chardonnay wine with your lunch and you can walk at least an hour along the water side at this beach.Price and Quality are perfect
