“Food from a top TV Chef and a Saintly Beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Egmond aan Zee a quiet coastal village protected by high dunes along miles of firm sand. Great for surfing, kiting, dog walking,keeping fit with a view of wind turbines out in the North Sea. Easy travel from Amsterdam. Close to Alkmaar famous for its Cheese. Used to eating at top London restaurants, like Rules of Maiden Lane, totally surprised when chance brought atmosphere, cheerful staff and a 4 course fish meal where every dish brought back memories from my eclectic past. Cockles as I ate as a child. Freshly caught fish with exceptional taste. A sweet that gave the wine an excellent flavour. "Please give the cook and his guys a drink" I said having started life as a commi-waiter in post-war London. Then met Paul Zwart (23) who became a TV TOP CHEF. He is very good. Amazed at the reasonable price. Owners wife, Elly and her staff treat you right royal. Not a place to miss or the local biological beer 7.5% vol from a 1,000 yr old well named Sancti Adalberti Miraculous Novum Triple.

“Nice place if you are on vacation in Egmond”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

Plenty of places to visit, this is just another one of them. Oysters were good, fish was also very nice. But just another beach restaurant, but great for kids for sure.

“Outstanding place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2011

I had the first set-course fish menu, with tuna carpaccio for an appetizer, grilled swordfish, and chef's choice dessert.

Every element of it was terrific. The service was outstanding. The ambiance is very old style dutch with a small clipper ship. The price was very reasonable given the quality of the food.

I don't know what's up with the person who called this average, but this meal was very non-average and the chef is obviously a real food guy. This is my 9th night in Europe on this trip--most of the trip being in big cities--and this dinner in a remote seaside village in Holland was definitely the best meal of the trip.
