“Soup in the Sunshine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic take on mosterd soep with the bite of the gerookte zalmen mixing in with the mustard and a few garnel for interest. Partner had Schinken, kaas en ui pannekoeken which was nicely caramelised. Service was swift, polite and genuinely jolly. Nice windbreaked terrace on the main winkel straat...Dorp. Just down from the post huys and it's adjacent intriguing art gallery. Hot drink quality could be improved...coffee was bitter and tea not leafy, fresh enough, brood rolls std. Loos good and clean and fresh tra la la...electronic entrance!?

“Great with young kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We had a quick lunch here at the end of our stay on Texel. The menu is quite extensive and well priced. The kids got a very cool soft toy as part of their kids meal (a super souvenior). The jumpy castle and playground just off the big sunny terrace meant we could sit and relax and enjoy the sunshine. Good, quick service. All in all a recommended stop.

“The best restaurant on Texel island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We've just spent a great weekend on Texel Island with my fiancee. At this time of the year (November - off season) the summer-holiday island was clearly deserted. There were only a handful of good restaurants open, but we've been lucky enough to find the Vogelhuis Oranjerie in de Koog.

Food is great, the restaurant looks really neat, and there is a central fireplace to add to that. The waiters are really friendly and adwise you based on your likes vs. trying to offer you the priciest dishes.

Try the starters, with some extra helping of a side, if you're really hungry. These straters are huge, nicely presented and offer a local touch - shrimps / lamb / cheese from the region.

The prices are also the best compared to the other restaurants around. A must try, if you're on Texel.
