“Fresh fish with a beautiful view!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is located near the ferry to Newcastle and (of course) the sea. Make sure you have a reservation for the best view. The food is good, nothing fancy and I have not tried the wine. I took as lunch a plate with smoked salmon, eel and shrimps with toast. Loved it!

“Happy fish dinner”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

From Newcastle to The Netherlands you sail to the city of IJmuiden. Close to the disembarking, at the top of the Harbour is The restaurant situated. You might drive directly to red light districts or coffeeshops, but you'd better have your first stop at "De Kop", have your excellent fish dinner and you're satisfied all the way. Coming back from all other dutch excitements you might have your last dinner at "De Kop" and you really wish coming back as soon as you can.
On a sunny day the ambiance of the harbour and the sea is gorgeous!

“Seafood, beer, sunshine and a view!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Impromptu meal after returning the Dutch Pedelec bikes we rented for a 4 day tour of North Holland. Ravenous after a lot of cycling and too tired to contemplate the walk home without a few drinks, we settled down for a starter - sashimi and bread basket - and a beer. The starter was so good and the beer so refreshing that we decided to scrap cooking all together and get mains as well. They were equally delicious. The portions are very generous, and come with a side of potatoes and a salad.

Even better, this place sells Texel beer, a brew we fell in love with on our 2 days in Texel cycling. Delicous and a good way to finish up some heavy cycling!

“A Haven of excellence in a harbour setting”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

This place comes as a surprise set as it is in the harbour area of Ijmuiden overlooking coal-fired power stations and belching blast furnaces! However the views towards the harbour mouth are tranquil and the busy marine/shipping activity provides constant interest. The facility is attractive in itself with a wide and attractive menu choice which is reasonably priced.
