Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 August 2013

It's not like it was disgusting or terrible - I mean, it could have been worse. But to take a simple food like the traditional Dutch "kibbeling" (fried cod pieces) with fries and make it so unenjoyable... Although the fish came freshly out of the fryer it was simply tasteless and dry, and at some points where the fish pieces had clumped together - the batter was also somewhat undercooked. Also fries were quite tasteless. Expensive too for a meal like that. The expectations of a good meal of fish at a haven were high (that's why we even were ready to pay a higher price hoping for an appropriate quality) but eventually disappointed. A pity. Seemed like they went for the amount rather than taste.
We wanted to feed the seagulls with what we couldn't finish (and we're no finicky eaters) but that would be considered littering, so the remains had to go in the bin.

Plenty of choice in fried fish. Simple dishes with rather big portions. The restaurant doesn't seem very clean. Unfortunately they had forgotten to change the frying oil.
