“The best restaurant on Texel island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

We've just spent a great weekend on Texel Island with my fiancee. At this time of the year (November - off season) the summer-holiday island was clearly deserted. There were only a handful of good restaurants open, but we've been lucky enough to find the Vogelhuis Oranjerie in de Koog.

Food is great, the restaurant looks really neat, and there is a central fireplace to add to that. The waiters are really friendly and adwise you based on your likes vs. trying to offer you the priciest dishes.

Try the starters, with some extra helping of a side, if you're really hungry. These straters are huge, nicely presented and offer a local touch - shrimps / lamb / cheese from the region.

The prices are also the best compared to the other restaurants around. A must try, if you're on Texel.

“Very good quality food, very professional restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

On Texel, this is one of the few professional restaurants. The quality is the highest we found on the island. The atmosphere is less impressive (there are many very nicely decorated restaurants on Texel, where the food comes on the second place), but the food is close to perfect.
Coffee and ice cream are perfect as well.
For about 40 Euro per person, we've had a very good (three course) dinner.

“we had a very nice waiter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

The restaurant was located in the centre of De Koog on a street with alot of other restaurants. We were seated on the terrace so we have a nice view of what is happening on the streets. It was Texel Culinair (tasting event) that weekend, so a lot was happening on the streets. The menu was very extensive, often this means average to low quality food. But this time it was rather good. A lot of ingredients from the region which we like. Our little girl received a small present which was a very nice gesture. The food was good and the prices all right. And the waiters were very friendly. They say they don't let dogs in, but later in the evening a couple with a dog was seated next to us. We didn't have any problem with that, but this is something I think should be shared with you.

“Lovely prawns!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

The prawns were excellent as was the cheese and tomato pancake. The restaurant lets dogs come in with their human companions so it was delightful to watch them.

“Nice, trendy restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

This is a trendy-looking restaurant with a nice, airy ambience. The menu is quite extensive and the portion is big, with lots of side dishes. We enjoyed the dinner.
