The Atmosphere is very friendly and the food was simply delicious. I've had the Smoked BBQ Burger and my parents were having a pizza each. The meat had a very rich flavour and it was well presented. I can only recommend the milkshakes as well. As soon as I'm in the area again, I will definitely pay another visit. Atmosphere,... More

We only had drinks here and felt it would be a good place to hang out for a while. No rush, no hassle.

Wonderful customer service. English is excellent, actually everywhere in the entire area, English is commonly used and we felt very comfortable and relaxed. Food was exceptional. Burgers had a lot of flavor, fresh ingredients and nice presentation. The entire vacation at the beach was incredible and this restaurant was a highlight.

Stopped in for a drink during an extended weekend and liked the atmosphere & friendly service so much we decided that before we left the area we'd stop in for dinner.

This is part of Ijmuiden aan Zee, a beach resort a couple of km from the ferry terminal. The owner was exceptionally friendly. He was not bothered that we ordered 3 meals for... More

I shall miss Het Zandhuis for the good food, convivial atmosphere but most of all mine hosts....Herman & Petra. It's been like walking into my local for the last 2 1/2 yrs, food available if needed, a beer or cold glass of Sauvignon blanc but importantly, the welcome you get from each and every one of the team there.

We really enjoyed Petra and Herman. They are wonderful, welcoming hosts and make you feel at home. Burgers and Pizza are the main choices, they customize every order if you have preferences. Give it try, you'll enjoy it and the wifi is excellent.
