Quick and friendly service. Tomato soup was excellent, and Mexican style beef was not bad. The best way to get here as well as anywhere in the island is on the bike. Wirh the great hurbor it is worth visiting.

Another place to stop when cycling around the island. Friendly atmosphere and service. A ferry full of bicycles was being returned to next door island Terschelling after a pop festival.

Dear Mike, Thank you for the review. For us it's not a great review, but it is also not very bad. There are some things I have to explain a little bit more so everyone knows how we work. 1- we never make reservations for outside on the terrace. We make the reservation inside, but if you want to sit... More

The staff is very, very good. The view to the sea and the port is awesome. The food is excellent... lunch and dinner. And the service is very quick. The interior is really stylish and modern . You don't expect it from outside.

The location is fantastic. It is situated in the middle of the harbour. There is a terrace with a windscreen, so even on a windy day (often in Vlieland), you can sit outside comfortably without getting blown away. The menu was pretty standard but it was all very-well prepared. The sandwiches and home-made cakes and pies I would recommend in... More

Arrived at 19.30 hrs. and took an hour to be served three scallops as a starter. Two Whole Bass appeared at 21.00 hrs. one was not fully cooked. Sent it back only for it to appear very quickly taken off the bone and in unattractive pieces on the plate. Complained to the manager that this was unacceptable and was not... More

Came here for Sundowners and desserts. Lovely lounge area, missed the lounge music though. We had to wait a bit before being served but was well worth it! Can recommend the ice coups as well as cocktails menu. Lovely spot to enjoy Sundowners and enjoy the views across de Waddenzee:)

Looking for a convenient place when you stay in the Vlieland marina, then de Dining is the perfect location. Nice view, nicely decorated and a bit trendy, personnel is nice, efficient and friendly. So what's wrong... The food comes fast, very fast... Surprisingly fast! So does it mean that everything is prepared in advance or placed in microwave oven. Nobody... More
