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.

The restaurant as such is probably not the best, although for a lunch or a simple dinner it is totally fine. The best thing is the setting on the top of a dune overseeing the North Sea. I can sit here for hours.

This is not the best. Service hit and miss, staff don't seem to want to be here, when approached bar was told to sit down it is waiter service. Eventually they served us drinks as did not dare order food. Would not recommend

Parnassia aan zee is great fun to visit. You can have some reasonable, simple food (in price and quality), but especially with nice weather this is an outdoors place to rest after walking in the dunes or along the beach. The owner always seems to be transforming the place, but never mind. We come here for many, many years and... More

Amazing location. Outdoor area has a playground for little kids. Menu didn't look very interesting, very few items to choose from, so we just bought drinks and headed to Bloemendaal aan Zee which has many more options for eating.
