Beach pavilion De Waterreus is a household name in Scheveningen. For decades, the famous beach bar has been located near the lighthouse. Since 2016, you can even go here 365 days a year: as the first permanent beach restaurant in Scheveningen, De Waterreus is the ideal place from summer to winter to enjoy a delicious bite to eat and a drink with a view of the North Sea. It is not for nothing that De Waterreus was named Best Beach Pavilion in the Netherlands in 2016!
The winter-resistant location of De Waterreus was completely redesigned in 2016. The beach pavilion combines the cool and sleek look of a trendy restaurant with maritime and old Scheveningen elements that give it a homely atmosphere. You are sheltered from the wind on the large terrace, but you do have a wide view of the sea. Ideal for sunny autumn days!
De Waterreus likes to work with beautiful products that really belong to the beach. The extensive menu includes dishes such as North Sea sole in butter and a Scheveningen stew. The cocktail menu invites you to have an extra drink on the sunny terrace in the summer. And in the winter months you can warm up here after a lovely walk on the beach with chocolate milk and a piece of freshly made cake.
Breakfast buffet every Sunday
On Sundays, De Waterreus always serves an unlimited breakfast buffet for young and old. With various types of luxury rolls, eggs prepared to your liking and many types of toppings. Enjoy a relaxing Sunday morning with a sea view!
At weekends and during beautiful summer days, it is recommended to make a reservation for the restaurant.
De Waterreus is the location to celebrate something. Bachelor party, wedding, company outing, team building: at this beautiful beach location they spice up every party. With the tastiest dishes, workshops or something else. Completely taken care of. In short: a party all year round!
