“Good food at the Waterfront”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Waterproof is a enjoyable place with very good food and an extensive wine list. The menu is not that extensive, but whatever is served is done in a very imaginative way. The service is very friendly and attentive.

“Speed Dining”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We arrived at 1900 hrs without a reservation, not smart, even on a Thursday, with a restaurant that is so highly rated.
We were greeted warmly, but told if we wanted to eat at Waterproef we would have to leave by 2000 hrs and only be able to have a main course, or come back tomorrow.
Since this was our last night in Scheveningen we accepted this offer.
We were served an amuse of aparagrus soup in a shot glass- it was wonderful!
Wife had filet of beef- cooked to perfection
I had two appetizers (served at the same time): Ravioli with a sauce of crayfish and cream and then the Iberico pork belly- both were delicious!
All with a bottle of red wine from their extensive wine list (more of a thick novel than a list).
With the hospitality and quality of the food we will definitely make a reservation the next time.

“Lovely evening”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

We had a lovely tabel for 3 at the waterfront. Nice selection of the menu. My sister and I both had 2 starters and a desert, no problem at all.
Lovely service, very cheerful and dear, but never too much.
Very good selection of wines.

“Great Stake”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

The food was to die for. The service was excellent. Although it was very busy the servers took plenty of time to explain the various menu choices. We sat upstairs with a lovely view ofthe harbor. My dinner companion had a beer brewed in the Hague, "Kompaan" that was very tasty and I a wonderful housewine.
One of the unusal things about this restaurant is that they have very comfortable armchairs at all the tables which makes for leisurely dinning.
Definately a restaurant I would love to have a stake in and definately recommend it over the other restuarants on the street.

“Must Visit, Perfect Food & Wine”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

If you are looking for a nice restaurant with perfect food & wine, look no further as this is it.
The hosts Yves & Lendl give you a perfect night out and make sure your table gets full attention.
The interior is really nice and they have an enormous amount of wine (over 1.000). Every month also a monthly menu. Try it and you'll come back!
