Great spot

We ate on the covered & heated terrace, which was really warm on a chilly day. Great, friendly service (really!). Top mussels & seafood and a good burger.

Restaurant right on the boardwalk. Reservation not necessary and can accommodate large groups. Our family of 8 can stop in after an afternoon on the beach and have the daily meal for 12 euros or a large gourmet meal. Staff is always friendly.

We visited this place for dinner on a busy day. There is lots of space to sit (even with a stroller). The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our daughter has a severe allergy for milk and this was a bit of a problem. It wasn't possible to eat fish because it would be baked on a grill where butter... More

Regardless to what some visitors write, the choice is generally very wide. Lots of drinks (also Gins and their tonics), good wine choice and more than enough food choice to satify anyone. On the contrary, I don't trust resto's where they offer 20 appetizers and as many main dishes! We have been here a few times already (with children), and... More

So many different plates to choose from!! A wide range of very nice dishes are served in a pleasant setting. When you sit next to the window you have a restaurant "with a view"! Splendid view on the Northsea! People are very friendly, the food is fresh and the restaurant very clean! A place you can tell your mother-in-law !

We were in transit and looking for somewhere for lunch. The offer on the seafront was fairly restricted. The first two choices were not available (no mussels in Belgium?) and the service was patchy. The cod was good but the chips were poor. I do not think I would return or recommend.

Great food, but extreme slow service! After more than 1 hout waiting we still had not received our starters, and we did not have anything to drink eventhough everything had been ordered within 10 - 15 minutes after our arrival. Between the dishes, the waiting time was extremely long and when we made a friendly comment about it at The... More
