    Flavour's: Dutch popular eateries

    by Rosey-K Updated Mar 13, 2014

    Quite a narrow restaurant with simple furnishing.

    Warm atmosphere with chandeliers dim lights.

    Fast and warm service from the waitress.

    Heard that it is best to make a reservation if wanted to dine here, and we did.

    They also cater lunch and breakfast.

    Favorite Dish: Like the Mix Grill which look so appetising.

    Like the freshness of those prawns with piri-piri, but it was a bit salty, thus drank plenty of water when I reached home. Another minus point, the dipping sauce that served with this dish wasn't compliment to those prawns.

    LIke their dessert Bastogneij ice-cream.

  • De Nieuwe Veenmolen: Unique experience!

    by Ivo_K Updated Jan 2, 2014
    View at the first floor from above

    This unique restaurant for private dining for companies from 8 to 40 people is located in a perfectly maintained Dutch watermill that was built in 1625 year! Unfortunately, we visited it in the evening and it was too dark for taking photos of the mill from outside...What I really like apart from the unique interior of an old mill is the fact that according to their rules only one company can use at a time the restaurant for lunch or dinner. The guests are invited to climb up the mill and get a quick guided tour with explanation on the mill origin and its use. We had a welcome drink at the mezzanine of the mill, the owners told us that also have a beautiful garden that could be used during the warm months of the year, but since we were there in November we couldn't use it anyway. We had a ready menu with a choice to make among 2-3 options for starters, soups, main dishes and desserts, everything was looking and tasting perfect. The restaurant is run by a family and the service was also of very high quality, the prices are affordable, there is also a free parking accommodating 18 cars for the guests of the restaurant. I really had a great time and would highly recommend this unique venue to all the people living in or visiting the Hague!

    Cafe van Beek: Steak-Centric Pub

    by nicolaitan Written Nov 16, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2 more images

    Conveniently located between the historic center and the train station, Cafe Van Beek was a welcome respite from inclement weather. Alone among the restaurants we checked out en route, this place was filled with diners, the best recommendation. Apparently in business for at least 15 years, there is very little in the way of internet information and reviews and there is no menu or website. Decor is basic bar and grill, could have been anywhere in the world. Service was efficient if nothing else, a little slow, perhaps not so many tourists stop here.

    The menu covered a broad range but was heavily beef oriented and we had some very good properly grilled steaks with good roast potatoes, accompanied by probably the best vodka we encountered in The Netherlands. Portions were large, prices reasonable. Cafe Van Beek is in no way exceptional but certainly a decent choice when in the area.

    Konditorei Vienna: Another Place For An Afternoon Beer

    by johngayton Written Oct 11, 2013

    Although I just dropped in for an afternoon beer I kinda liked the location of this cafe/ice-cream place. Indoors there are only 22 seats but the terrace, in the triangular "square" of Plaats, is a pleasantly shady location, just a stone's throw from the Binnenhof.

    This is a daytime only cafe with a selection of ice-creams and a short snack menu. If I remember correctly beer was reasonably cheap, service pleasant and swift and considering its central position it was surprisingly uncrowded.

    De Haagsche Kluis: As Good A Place As Any For Your Beer Nibbles!

    by johngayton Updated Oct 11, 2013
    2 more images

    With the sun shining for the first time for weeks every cafe terrace in the city was doing a roaring trade. I'd done most of my wandering for the afternoon and I'd definitely worked up a thirst. So it simply a matter of finding a suitable free space in the sun for well-deserved beer.

    The terrace here at De Haagsche Kluis had one, and one only, vacant table, facing onto the main square as I passed which made my decision instantaneously simple. I was in a nibbly mood, having breakfasted at my houseboat B&B in Arnhem, caught my first New Season Hareng Broodje in Amsterdam, followed by a croquet for lunch later. With a few more beers on the agenda I reckoned a plate of Borrel Hapjes would suit and so beer and nibbles it was to be.

    This is something the Dutch do exceeding well, and here at De Haagsche Kluis was no exception. A substantial platter of deep-fried bitterballen, croquets and something Oriental came with nibbles of cheese, olives and salted roasted nuts which for something like 6 euros was excellent value. A couple of accompanying beers added another 8 and the prime front table was a priceless bonus.

    Just as a matter of interest the name means "The Haag's Safe" which refers to a strongroom installed in the basement when the house was built by a local merchant in 1905. The safe is part of the kitchen's stores these days and has its original door. It can be visited on the annual "Open Monument Day".

  • Grand Café Restaurant Toff Scheveningen: Nice cafe/restaurant next to the Pier!

    by Ivo_K Written Oct 10, 2013
    The interior
    4 more images

    Located on the famous Scheveningen boulevard right next to the beach and opposite the Pier, Toff is the place to enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner with good as size portions. Opened 7 days a week all year round and offering a very relaxed and cool atmosphere/interior, nice, but not very long menu with a focus on Asian food and a view at the wide beach, the beautiful sea and the famous Pier of Scheveningen. On weekends there are DJs and live music, so you can also dance. The venue has some tables for smokers right next to the door. The staff is kind and the food was prepared quickly, prices are average - for a light dinner for 3 people with some beers (they have several on tap) and two glasses of white wine we paid 80 EUR.

    Favorite Dish: Rendang (tender stewed beef with Indonesian spices & pickles, served with rice) and their Fetakaas Salade Vegetarisch (mixed salad with black olives, sweet peppers, tomato, cucumber, feta cheese & croutons)

    The Thai Box: Thai cuisine

    by Rosey-K Written May 13, 2013

    This restaurant was previously occupied by Dim Daily which was closed since last year.

    The interior deco has been changed a bit to match the Thai style.

    Waitress is friendly and fast.

    The main course, Kaeng Kari Kai (chicken curry) and Pad Thai Kai (fried noodles) were so-so only.

    A bit disappointed as we thought it says 'Eat in or take out, come and Judge" slogan didn't serve the purpose.

    Favorite Dish: The starter which we order, chicken satay was good and tasty.

    The price for our lunch for 2 persons is a bit pricey.

    Hollandse Nieuwe Haring ..possibly.: This is not a restaurant!

    by leics Updated Apr 14, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The stall.
    1 more image

    I don't think Hollandse Nieuwe Haring is actually the name of this particular stall: it's just what it sells (along with other fishy snacks).

    But it was very busy indeed with local people (I visited around lunchtime) which is always a very good sign.

    I'd already decided to try a maatje herring and onion roll on this visit to the Netherlands, and here was my chance: I was hungry and the stall was right in front of me. They sold lots and lots of fishy snacks, hot and cold, but it was the herring-and-onion roll I wanted (2.50 euro on the day).

    I cannot describe quite how glorious the herring was. The bread roll was soft, the onion (chopped finely) was mild and the herring literally melted in my mouth. A wonderful combination of tastes and textures which has left me with a craving for more.

    Maatje herring is very young herring, served raw but ripened' in brine for a few days. That makes it both incredibly soft and incredibly mild in flavour...and not salty at all. The Dutch invented (or, more likely, 'developed') the process in Medieval times. Nowadays, EU regulations require that the fish is also frozen at -20C for at least 24 hours, in order to kill off potential parasites, so what was originally an early-summer-only treat can be enjoyed all year round.

    If you like fish..and especially if you like sushi..I do heartily recommend that you try maatje herring, preferably in a roll and with chopped onion (you'll find stalls in Dutch towns other than Den Haag, of course). It is simply wonderful!

    Bibliotheek Den Haag: Friendly place for a coffee and a snack

    by leics Written Apr 12, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Library exterior
    4 more images

    Den Haag's public libarary stands on the corner of Spui and Kalvermarkt. It's a modern building which holds not only the library but also a Tourist Information office, very clean toilets (on the top floor) and a rather nice cafe.

    The jolly ladies who served me with my coffee spoke good English. The cafe is clearly a popular spot to sit and work (or surf) on your laptop and offers a range of drinks, cakes and snacks.

    The library is a pleasant place for a break and a drink or snack on your way to or from Den Hag's central station.

  • Strandpaviljoen Grand Plage: Great beach bar!

    by Ivo_K Updated Apr 4, 2013
    The outlet
    4 more images

    This is a trendy outlet situated right at the Scheveningen beach in Den Haag, not far away from the famous Steigenberger hotel. It's a seasonal outlet though it was working in the beginning of April (even the summer garden was opened and working) and offers several types of Belgian beers (4 of them on tap) plus not a very long food menu, but with big portions, the food is tasty and prices average for Den Haag. The interior, the location of the venue and the great choices of Belgian beers are what is making this place really special for me. The service was also very good, the only disadvantage was that despite of the heating even within the outlet it was relatively cold when we visited it in the beginning of April.

    Favorite Dish: The great choice of Belgian beers, four of them on tap, several main dishes with fish!

  • Diner Thuis: Superb interior, food and service!

    by Ivo_K Updated Apr 4, 2013
    The smaller dining room on the second floor
    4 more images

    I was more than pleasantly surprised when my friends brought me to this old house without any signs that it's actually inside such a fancy restaurant. The venue called Diner Thuis (translates as Diner at Home) is situated in old building from 1904 year with several floors and offers two big dining rooms. With its original ceilings and parquet floors and unique interior from the beginning of 20th century (there are even two original paintings from 1648 year in one of the rooms) Diner Thuis really gives you the idea of going back in time. You are met by the very kind restaurant manager upon arrival -he is offering a drink and showing you around before bringing you to the dining room where he serves the food and explains you in details information about each dish served. The interior, the quality of food and service (as well as the speed of service done by the same manager) is really excellent and is deserving the higher than average prices for Den Haag till the last cent. There is no parking space on the street in front of the restaurant, this is the only negative thing that I could come with when thinking about this excellent venue!

    Favorite Dish: Everything what I have tried was fantastic - the salad with wild mushrooms, the portion of 3 small soups, the main dishes - beef and vegetarian, the super tasty desserts.
