A special dinner in flavourful Scheveningen


If you are planning a city trip to The Hague or a beach holiday in Scheveningen, you should definitely see the harbour of Scheveningen. It is not just a big fishing harbour; there is also a lovely marina for private yachts. Moreover, it has become a popular nightlife destination.

With great terraces, brasseries, exotic and exclusive restaurants and some lovely specialty seafood restaurants, you are certain to enjoy a wonderful dinner at the harbour of Scheveningen after strolling along the water. If the weather is good, most of these restaurants serve your dinner on the terrace with a view of the bustling harbour. We have picked a few exclusive addresses for you.

Lemon Grass (Doctor Lelykade 24) This excellent seafood restaurant is situated on the harbour. With its wonderful terrace and varied wine menu, this is definitely the place to enjoy a pleasant evening.

The Harbour Club (Doctor Lelykade 5) The Scheveningen marina with its pleasure yachts can be found in the corner of the harbour. Go to the 'Harbour Club' with its excellent fresh fish from around the world. They have everything from sushi to lobster, oysters and tiger prawn, and even serve a mean Black Angus Steak. 

Rootz (Dr Lelykade 33-37) For the best Belgian dishes in the harbour of Scheveningen, go to Rootz. This place is located in the Tweede Binnenhaven (second inner harbour) where the fish auctions used to be held. Their menu boasts a range of wonderful Belgian dishes and a broad assortment of beers and wines. As you’d expect, the mussels are extraordinary. We recommend them!

Buiten (Strandweg 67) Enjoy some great food and a drink while watching the sun set – this is something you can do at one of the many beach venues in Scheveningen. We recommend 'Buiten', where you can enjoy wonderful organic meals in tranquil, basic surroundings.
