The restaurant is different to the norm ... you stand in a queue, order your dish then sit down. Wait for your number to be called out (so you have to pay attention). Good fresh fish, good portions. You just need to know what to expect.

The fish at Simonis is good, but don't expect anything else, the paella, te chips or the salad is of low quality/taste, clean your own table and chair before you sit down, if not you might stick to it.

The upside is a very good quality fish, fast service and low cost and a full belly when you leave.

The food is pleasantly priced, tasty and plentyfull. Pity the wine, at very good prices, for the starter arrived after we finished the course. We were frist brought the wrong wine and when checking the bill this bottle was also on the bill.

All in all we will defenitely come back because the overall experience was we had a very pleasant evening.

The fish is very fresh and their dishes are very good. Portions are really big and service is fast and efficient. Prices are great compared to quality and portions. One of the best places for fish in the Hague.

Every time we come to Den Haag to visit my brother and his family, a stop by Simonis would be a must - sometimes several days in a row! Invariably the same choices would be ordered:

1. Haring op toasts - freshly cut (...vers van het mes...) tender briny fillets eaten raw with toasts...
2. Slibtong baked in butter (...roomboter gebakken...) or dusted lightly with flour and pan fried...
3. Grote gamba's grilled to a succulent char on the outside and bitingly sweet and tender inside...

Sometimes we ordered a salad - which is quite big and should be shared - just to have some greens...

We go primarily to the location in Den Haag, there is one in Scheveningen.

Dutch only menu...

I have to say - it's our all time favorite seafood place: fresh, delicious, not expensive.
They sure do have de beste haring in de wereld!
