Usually great seafood is associated with poche surroundings, nose-up behavior and big bills. This one is all different. Kind of fast food concept, but make no mistake: this is great food. Located in a kind of former fish warehouse and still meters away from the fishing ships unloadingg area, the place is busy,, fuzzy in its service concept, but rewarding with everything excellent from the best Dutch-tradition kibbeling to large and juicy lobsters.

This restaurant is located in the harbour of Scheveningen. There is free parking in front and next to the restaurant but it can sometimes be difficult to find a spot. Inside it looks like you are entering a market. Don't a luxurious restaurant but what you can expect is to eat good and tasty sea food in an informal restaurant. The gambas are amazing (the big ones with a spanish sauce but also the small ones with a crunchy layer). The tuna salad, the "kibbeling" and the other fishes I tried were all good. Most dishes are served with fries, you can get as many sauces as you like. As dessert I can recommend the strawberry ice cheesecake, it's delicious! Service is not the best, a lot of teenagers working here. There are seats outside.

I've been here around ten times and never had a bad experience. This restaurant is always crowded which means I am not the only one who likes to eat here. Food is cheap, with drinks I never paid more than 20 euros per person. Certainly recommendable, enjoy!

If it is good seafood you are looking for at reasonable prices this is the place to go. The medium sized seafood platter is ample for 1 person and great value at approx. €25 including lobster, oysters, scallops etc The restaurant is more akin to a cafeteria and quite noisy however if this does not bother you and your priority is fresh seafood, then you will enjoy.

The squids were just delicious and the location is just perfect - like 100-120 meters from the sea. It was really lovely to sit with my wife and daughter and for an hour to dive into their yummy dishes testing :-)
