Parnassia has something like a mythical reputation. I live not too far away from Overveen and have always been awed by its reputation which was, I must confess, all 'hear say'. On a nice spring day in 2017 we decided that we should enjoy the warm spring sun and for the first time in our lives visit Parnassia. The weather... More

Came here after a walk in the dunes with my boyfriend. It was big, warm and busy. It wasn't a problem to find a seat though and the staff were attentive and friendly. Food is OK. It's a typical dutch beach side restaurant! It will be busy pretty much year round and especially so in the summer.

We stopped here after walking in the NP. The place is comfortable and staff is friendly and helpful. We had the lasagna verdure which was good, but unfortunately not hot enough. The bread with dip was also very nice and plenty. Prices are good, especially compared to other places on the beach.

They have several areas and we wanted to sit down in one of the quiet areas as all other areas where packed with screaming children. One member of staff said it was ok but after waiting for a while without service we asked about that and where rudely told that there would be no service in that area and we... More

Seldomly I have seen a place that hates its customers more than this restaurant. Lousy service. We waited for 30 minutes and when we said we would leave the waitress said she would be with us "soon". She never arrived and when we asked we found out it was the end of her shift. Locals do get service though.

Two small, lousy pizzas, 24 euros, waiting time 45 minutes. And it was outside rush hour. When I ask the personnel efter more than a half an hour, I got a smirky answer "Look there they are in the oven"....

Parnassia is right off the bloemendaal beach. And if you are thirsty or hungry while there, it's fine. Not worth the trip. Zandvoort has much better options.

After a long walk in the dunes and beach we went for dinner. This day was great to dine outside. We had the fish and chips, chicken satay and the veggie burger. All were reasonably good. Nice staff.

We chose Parnassia as they have a playground area (outdoor). It was a very quiet day and a bit windy, but the windscreens still made this spot nice and comfortable. The playground area is right next to the tables so it's easy to keep an eye on the kids while enjoying a conversation with a splendid view. We had lunch... More

We waited for over an hour for our sloppy food. The food was cold and was served with no cutlery. We saw a sea of waiters wondering around with food with no clue. They need to step up but unfortunately it's the only restaurant for miles and they take full advantage of the situation.

Thank Nadia P
