Restaurant is in a perfect location by the sea and has a great atmosphere. We visited in the winter and it was romantic with the Christmas trees and the outdoor fire heaters. Would visit again.

A nice location on the beach. Large cosy place with nice design. The food is tasty/short selection of typical Dutch fare, but enough to satisfy a family of 5. Waiters could be more friendly though.
