It started out by serving us a lukewarm beer! The expensive glass is white wine we ordered was not poured at the table, makes you wonder?!?! Which wine did they give me? Food was ok but expensive, service people were inexperienced. Too bad!
To start with the positives. The restaurant is big and tastefully decorated in a rustic lounge, beach club style. Right on the beach with spectacular views of waves and sunsets. Service is friendly, swift and attentive. Toilets fine.
However, the quality and creativity of the...kitchen is a true let down and the term ‘tourist trap’ comes to mind. Carpaccio and fresh bread OK. Main course kibbeling (deep fried fish nuggets) and pizza carbonara OK. But the sea bass absolutely lacked any flavour, not even salt or pepper. And the BBQ procureur, supposedly a steak glazed with mustard and honey, was so dry and flavourless and had the appearance of overcooked pork chops instead of juicy BBQ steak. When asked if all was OK, this was also mentioned to our waiter.
For dessert the menu showed a ‘sinaasappel magnum’ with ‘dulce de leche’. We ordered this, not ever imagining that this was literally a Magnum ice cream popsicle of orange and vanilla flavour, put to rest on a plate with some garnish around it (see photo). When eating the ice cream we all noticed a strong fishy smell, so we imagine they store ice cream and frozen seafood in the same freezer. To top it off the bill had extra beer and wine items that we did not order.
At check out this all was mentioned. Let’s hope they take these remarks serious and improve we quickly, because this restaurant’s setting deserves a much better kitchen. For us the food was unfortunately a big disappointment.More
Trendy location just outside of the Westcord hotel. Busy restaurant with good food and friendly personnel.
At dinner I ate the mixed grill which was really tasty and a good amount of food. For lunch I had the pulled pork hot dog which was also...really tasty. Location was really busy with good personnel. So I would approve this location.More
Great location! Very fancy place for a beach restaurant. It even has electric glass sliding doors at the entrance! :-/ The ambition is high with an expensive building and high prices for the food. Unfortunately the service does not match that level. Staff is mostly...students who do not have a good overview. For example. New drinks will be served but empty glasses will not be taken back at the same time.
Could be a much more enjoyable place with professional staff!More
Incredibly beautiful beach-restaurant. Probably one of the most beautiful I have seen in NL so far. However, there is a catch, service & food is average however prices are not.
Pity, this could be the best place in Vlieland.
This Brasserie/Bar with a fantastic view on the Beach and North Sea, is hudge and well organised. The menu gives a good choice of dishes and beverages. The service is mostly in hands of students which is normal I would say, but has it's consequences...service wize.... but all in all very nice atmosphere !More
Visited for drinks on our first day on the island and decided to book dinner for the following night as well due to our positive first impression!
Great ambiance, good food, attentive service throughout the evening.
Set at a beautifull location, very stylish and trendy interior, comfrtable terrace shielded from the wind with fantastic views of the beach and sea. The staff is very friendly and the menu looks promising. Then why still only 2 stars? Because the food is just...not good. The meat was tasteless and dry, the scampi's had been far too long in the ,freezer, the salad just tastes like sharp onions. Maybe the cook was ill or had a bad day, but we found it just a shame for such a nice place.More
