“Pizza even better than some Italian restaurants”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

We were here on a holiday, visiting the nearby Holiday Inn.
Passing the boulevard, we noticed a nice small place with a sign saying the best pizza's on the boulevard.
Because we love pizza's we decided to try them out. We ordered a margaritha and a quattro stagioni.
The pizza base is the thinnest we have found in a while and the ingredients were nice and fresh.
Added with fresh garlic, oregano, and sunshine on the terrace we felt we were in heaven.
These were some of the best pizza's we had in a long time.

Service was very friendly. We're coming back again to try the burgers, because they looked awesome as well

“A friendly warm welcome”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

I am a regular visitor to Het Zandhuis in Ijmuiden and one of the reasons I love coming back is the friendly, efficient service. the good food (the burgers are amazing) and the free high speed internet via a Wi-Fi hotspot. The manager is always hands-on and makes you feel very welcome. The fireplace when its chilly outside adds to the atmosphere and for a truly amazing addition experience, the landlord is also a magician willing to entertain the patrons with ropes, cards and sponge balls. A great little venue.

“Landlird service with awesome food”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

If the landlord can keep up this great level of service and food quality this will be a crowded and and successful place when the wheather is better than today.

We had burgers and fries. Service was fast. The place is nice and warm. Smells fine by the way.

Highly recommended.

“Smelled funny”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

Went there for an evening drink. The place is very dark and had a strange smell which put us off staying longer than one drink. The service was good though.

Dear Tara,

thank you very much for taking the time for rating us on Tripadvisor.
As you can see, we get great ratings for our food and hospitality. Therefor we cannot understand a lower rating and would love to know what we can do to improve our business.

Could you please explain the ""smelled funny'' remark. Was it the fireplace, the restrooms, the food, or anything else?

Looking forward to your reply.

Best wishes,

Herman Koster
