“Great location, friendly service, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

With only 20 meters from the beach the location is great. Friends of us recommended this restaurant for it's great atmosphere, good service and good food and they were right. Although Westewind is not the best restaurant in town, it was much better tahn one might expect at such a touristy location.

“Great place for Sunday morning breakfast or brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the great quality of the food and coffee. For 10 Euro + drinks there is all you can eat buffet.
Good salmon, prosciutto, pastries etc.

“Simple food, nice for people watching”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

This place is located in the middle of the board walk, making it a perfect spot for watching people walk by and enjoying the view on the sea. Meals and drinks are simple but fine. In winter time you can warm yourself at the fire place. Prices are fair considering the location and view. Staff is friendly. On Sunday there is a buffet brunch (check before).

“Nice but overpriced wine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Went here on a recent trip since we didn't have much time and was very cold. The ambiance inside is nice but some prices are way up more than it is worth. Take for example a bottle of "house" wine that you can buy in the supermarket for about €4 and we were billed €18.50 for it.

I have been many times to Scheveningen but it was my first time in this restaurant. I sure now where I won't go again at least for wine.

“Restaurant by the Sea”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Well decorated and cosy Cafe-Restaurant facing the beach in Scheveningen. Restaurant located in Scheveningen promenade, behind the Kurhaus Resort Hotel. The service is fast and friendly. The food and drinks were average.
They also serve Lunch and Dinner. Their closed terrace facing the beach and sea is a good place to relax and do people-watching.
