We visited this restaurant on July 26th with two families - four adults and six children. After not being seated for approximately 15 minutes, we asked a waiter for assistance. He rudely responded that he was busy and would get to us later. After being seated, we ordered water and drinks. The same rude waiter gave us a hard time for ordering water because “they don't make money on water”. After asking for a drink from four different waiters and being ignored in all cases, I complained. The same rude waiter proceeded to get into a verbal altercation with me in front of my family.
This restaurant is staffed by poorly trained, rude kids. The food is average at best and overpriced. The one waiter in particular that consistently gave us a hard time had short black hair and eyes that were very close together . Do yourself a favor - pack a lunch or eat anyplace else on the island - just not here!

Take the bike trail along the north side of Ameland and at some point you will hit this little beach pavilion. The secluded terrace area, overlooking a natural phenomenon: the sand hook, is very nice. The restaurant indoors is simple but the food is terrific. Try the squid and you'll be back! ;-))
