We left our hotel in search of an affordable and filling Sunday Brunch. We found a lovely brunch at the Big Bell at a more than reasonable price. We had real scrambled eggs, toast, rolls, donuts, salmon salad, smoked eel, cheeses, meats, yoghurt, fruit and more. The price of 12.95 included two drinks each and the orange juice was freshly...

We chose this place for dinner on the beach side and were really impressed with hte service and the food taste, despite we usually being asian food lovers. The spices, flavours and taste was good and yummy with every bite! The live music was icing on the cake with some great numbers sung during our visit!

We have ben here many times for lunch in the past and that was always very good with friendly staff. This time we wanted to have a drink after dinner with our grand children. They had a live band with a very good singer and we enjoyed that very much, also our grand children liked the music.

We rolled off the overnight ferry very hungry and were so pleased to see this place open when everything was closed and deserted. We had hot chocolates, orange juice, amazing pancakes and a toasts sandwich. All were delicious. Unusual decor but cosy and inviting. Great

Nice Restaurant and good food. We loved the fire spots inside. It was so cold and windy outside, so this was quite perfect. We had a nice evening.

We went for a late breakfast on New Year's Eve and liked the look of the place straight from the outside. Entering it was a wonderful experience - the decor of fake old bookshelves, with the end-of year decorations was very cosy and inviting. We settled for a full breakfast which cost us around 20 Euros and was very generous:... More

On the boulevard at Scheveningen this is one of the nicest restaurants i have been to. Good quality of food and value for your money. The service was a bit lacking, but their positive attitude had a good influence on the dinner-experience.

Good value food and tasty. No rush to move on as you could sit and listen to the live music and have a dance if you wanted to... Always come here when coming to Scheveningen - love the little fires in the conservatory but can't get used to the smokers as people seem to smoke more over there. Doesn't deter... More
