Pannekoekenhuis De pier
I was so busy stuffing my face with a yummy pancake in the pancake house "De pier" that I forgot to take a picture of the restaurant itself. From the outer ring of tables you have a nice view on the sea.
I had an apple pancake with sugar and cinnamon (Appel Suiker Kaneel in Dutch) for Euro 6.95 and a hot tea for Euro 2.05. The menu was in Dutch only. Apart from pancakes they also serve poffertjes, toasts etc.
The restaurant ist located on a satellite of the pier in Scheveningen, ie in the building tower that has Bungy written on it. They charge 50 cents for the use of the toilet if you are not a guest.
There are so many of them: Cafes on the beach
There are so many nice cafes situated along the beach. You are going to have hard time chosing only one, because all of them look great. I especially liked some designes ,so many colors, so many little things that make the difference like candles, vases, flowers ect.
Each of these cafes is a perfect place to relax, on a sunny day
Big Bell: Easy place to get together
The food here is average. Not particularly good or very bad. Since this part of the boulevard has usually quite a crowd, the places here don´t really have to do anything extra to get the place full (mostly with people visiting Scheveningen for a day). But, since this place is located right next to the path you take on the right-hand side from the Kurhaus to get to the boulevard. It is a place that is very easy to find. So, it makes for an ideal spot to meet up with people not familiar with Scheveningen.
Sakura is a chain of Japanese restaurants that started in Arnhem and now can be found in Rotterdam, Scheveningen, and Antwerp (Belgium) too. A bit expensive but worth it, since it's not easy to find a good sushi restaurants in The Netherlands.
The food is great as well as the service.
Second harbour: And then you must choose....
There are quite some restaurants to choose from in the second harbour. The picture shows part of it but if you walk on a little on the city side of this harbour there you can find even more restaurants. Frequented mostly by local people. Tourists have a tendency to stay on the boulevard..
Strandtenten (beach cabins) are specall restaurant/bar/cafe places that are always build up somewhere in the middle of march and broken down again at the end of september/beginning of october depending on the weather. They come in all kind of different ' look and feel'-s. From plastic seats up to lounge-places. I even spotted a hammock somewhere!
The furter you get away from the Pier, the less crowded they become
Favorite Dish: Usually the sate's and spareribs are quite good. But it depends of course on the particular place
Copacabana: Hungry and not able to choose...
We had checked in and felt kinda lagged by the hussle and bussle of leaving home.
Something to eat sounded a good idea, but what to choose? It all seemed to be delicious!
Favorite Dish: This is but one favourite, the one my hubby had (with just the ham) looked great as well...choices choices!

't Pannenkoekenhuisje Scheveningen: Very yummie pancakes
Well actually i usually don't go to pancake restaurants. But we once had to kill some time and needed lunch when one of my collegues came up with this. And now every once in a while we all go and have lunch here when the weather is good and we feel like it. It's right on the boulevard and they have an amazing list of pancakes.. 94 variaties on their list. And if you can't choose.. they have some salads and other stuff as well.
Favorite Dish: So far all pancakes i have tried are very very good.
Price range from a very simple pancake Euro 4.20 up to a complete dinner-type of pancake 11.20 euro. They also have various menu's ranging from 6.40 up to 15.40 euro (prices 2003)
Het brouwcafe: Great view on the harbour
Very nice cafe-restaurant with also a nice terrace which gives a splendid view on the Scheveningen harbour. They brew their own beer which you can sip while you see the sun set over the sea...
You can have diner from the menu but they also have a monthly menu for 16 euo (3-courses) and main courses from the house for 10 euro.
They also do a very decend lunch
Favorite Dish: What i like most i think is their kipsate. Very tasty
Bistro Bontje: Best Spareribs... Ever
Located in the basement of a residential building, Bistro Bontje has a dark and cozy atmosphere. There are probably 20 tables but if they’re full, try sitting at the bar to wait for a table or to have your meal. Spareribs are their specialty, but they also serve beef, chicken, lamb and fish. In a world where restaurants come and go quickly, I’m glad to see one of my favorite restaurants from the late 1980’s is still doing well. Closed on Mondays.
Favorite Dish: Apparently the secret is Indonesian Soy Sauce. There also seem to be some special herbs sprinkled on as well. Ribs are all about the sauce and the sauce used at Bistro Bontje even won acclaim at Texas BBQ contest years ago. I’ve never tasted ribs as good anywhere else, but I admit that I don’t try very often anymore because I’ve been disappointed so often at other restaurants. The Spareribs are served on a wooden platter and if one plate doesn’t fill you, you can ask for another. Yes, the hot version will burn your lips.

Brauwcafe: Restaurants at the harbour
The best of the restaurants in Scheveningen can be found at the harbour. Walk from the Boulevard South until you reach the first harbour (the one near the sea). There you can find some cheap spots where you can eat fish, like Gebr. Simonis (Visafslagweg 20) or Haringhuisje. When you walk further away from the coast, you get to the second harbour. Along the water are built some new buildings with a lot of restaurants inside, like Lemon Grass (Nouvelle Cuisine), Dagvisser (fish) and de Zoute Zoen (also fish). Rainbow is a funny restaurant in tropical forest atmosphere, which is nice for kids. Pasta company is one of the best italian restaurants of The Hague. My favourite place is Brouwcafe, where they have simple but good food, excelent beer and a wonderful view on the harbour from the sunny terrace. If you walk further along the second harbour to the yaughts at the end, you will see the old Visafslag (fishtrade) building with another group of restaurants inside. The first one is Dukdalf, the best but also most expensive fish restaurant in town. But there are also several cousy bars for sailors or yachtclubs.
Favorite Dish: Take something with fish: it's fresh!
Simonis Crangon Shrimps: Famous Scheveningen Shrimps
The North Sea shrimp is also known as the Dutch or "grey shrimp". Its scientific name is Crangon. These little creatures can be found along the entire coast, sometimes even at a few meters from the beach. Shrimp fishery has always been much practised in Holland.
You like sea-food? Here's one of the best and most legendary sea-food spots of The Hague. Its name is Simonis (runned by the brothers of Simonis), a certain comprehension to all locals from The Hague and Scheveningen. Though also in environment far and wide. Any fish you can think of you can find with Simonis, Scheveningen. They also exploit two more fish-stands in Scheveningen and The Hague.
Open: April to Oktober Mo.-Sun. 09:00 - 21:00 uur
November to March Mo.-Sun. 9:00 - 19:30
Favorite Dish: Think of a horse d'oevre with 10 sorts of high-quality fish, a delicious smoked salmon, or even a Japanese sushi. And it is so good to visit Simonis for a short walk-in, order some sea-food with bread and enjoy it in your car ... driving along the Scheveningen coast. For sure you'll drive back for some more sea-food experiences ... like the famous Simonis Crangon Shrimp !

The brouwcafe: Mmmmm t was delicious!
The Brouwcafe is the only brewery in The Hague. Since July 1996 it is at the second inner harbor of Scheveningen.
Each day fresh beers are brewn here.
It s real cafe and we sat at the podium. Still were a bit bothered by the cold draft each time the door opened/closed.
A bit packed but not very uncomfortable.
Favorite Dish: We had to choose between two menu's and I was satisfied bout the choice that was made.

And if outside it's cold, don't worry to stay in the oustide terrace, there are electric heaters.
Favorite Dish: Salade and salomon.
Tropez: Mexican, Japanes and other restaurants
Saw a lot of restaurants and "Strandpaviljoens" with various menu's for a very reasonable price, between 10 and 20 euro.
We dint have dinner here today but we had some great coffee and Äppeltaart met slaroom", applecake with whipped cream.
Coffe isnt expensive either, surprised ,e veru much because being a touristic place u can expect higher prices normally.
1 coffee and this cake was only 2,50 euro.
I think we pay more at Eidnhoven like 4,50 euro for the same product
