After looking online for reataurants in De Haan to be open on a Wednesday, (which is really, really rare) we stumbled upon Bistro Villa Julia. Situated in a nice villa (the owner lives at the 2nd floor) the restaurant is quickly overlooked. But once entered the door, you receive a warm welcome and the even opened a special extra room for us to sit, as the restaurant was full. The hostess was really friendly and the food served was excellent. You can choose from 3 portion sizes, tapas, starter and main. As I was not that hungry, I only chose 3 starters, but my family chose starters and mains. It was not a problem at all and we all got served the same time. The atmosphere was nice, the toilets were a surprise, clean, red, mirrors. Overall the styling really fitted the whole restaurant. I would definitely come back, if I ever happen to visit De Haan again.

Villa Julia is a classic villa a few streets removed from the coast-line of De Haan. It contrasts beautifully with all the stereotypes I had of the Belgian seaside. The setting is wonderful, the service personal and friendly, and the food very good and reasonable value. Definitely worth the visit.

If you go, try the potatoes with shrimps - they are lovely.

We booked a table for 2 - staff were happy to change the original one for another that we preferred. They were attentive and tried hard to translate the menu into english. The food was excellent - i recommend the mash with prawns starter, and their steak was very tender too.

We didn't have a reservation and were lucky to get a table at 6pm as the place was full! Staff were friendly and helpful and the food excellent.
