First time for me in IJmuiden. Restaurant has a great view over the habor with impressive oil platform. Restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Service was great, menu looks good plenty choice for fish. We has the kibbeling and lekkerbek which was too fishy for me. Further we had fish croquette, mussels and fish taco. Not the best fish restaurant ever,... More

I took my boys age of 4 and girlfriend to this place for lunch. Ordered fish and chips for my children. The normal portion is good enough for two kids, price is good (€8). For myself, I had uitsmijter :) Taste good, price is also reasonable. Surely recommended! Especially with the pretty scenery from the restaurant windows. You can see... More

The building is unassuming from the outside but doesn't disappoint on... More

Stayed at the Holiday Inn. Was very hungry. The ribs were great and challenging to eat. They were more like a loin than a rib. Not many options near the hotel.

Tried Kop van de Haven without researching it, just looking for somewhere to have a few beers to while away a couple of hours before boarding the ferry to Newcastle at the nearby DFDS ferry terminal. Views of the shipping passing by are to be had from the restaurant/bar, but this was just the first positive. There were some (albeit... More
