My wife and me spend the weekend of Pentecost there. The package of three nights, three dinners and breakfasts had an excellent price:quality ratio. The rooms were not so much to our likings (quite modern and minimalistic decoration), but they were spacious, quiet and with all amenities. The private parking place is a must, since the location of the hotel/restaurant is in the middle of the quiet village in a narrow street.
There are two main aspects why I strongly recommend this place: the hospitality and the quality, diversity and creativity of the food. All people at Jef's have have only one goal, to make you feel comfortable and to give you the best experience. They have this type of hospitality that is natural but very accomodating. They don't impose, but are there to fulfill your wishes. This goes for everybody, the owners and all of their staff.
The package included a three, a four and a five course dinner. Well, one thing they do wrong is counting. In all the dinners I am sure that we had much more then the number of courses mentioned. The 'amuses bouches' and and he other bites in between made us forget about the number of courses, we simply enjoyed. I am not going to mention one particular dish because the creativity was so enormous and the taste so good of every dish individually so good that I wouldn't even remember. Not once over these three days I had the impression that we ate a dish that we have eaten before or alike. Even the breakfasts were at a high culinary level. If there is one point of (minor) criticism, perhaps normal breakfasts after the culinary dinners would also have been OK. Sometimes bacon and eggs taste wonderful after high level chefs creations. But if you love life and nature go to Texel to Jef.
