The location is fine, right in the centre on the water. The lunchmenu is very small- a tomato and a fishsoup, a salad of the day, a massive burger.
Apparently the dinnermenu is more extensive.
We had a fried fish on bread; nothing fancy, exactly what you d expect, the burger was massive on a slice of bread, with some gerkins and salad. Their coffee was really food. The 3 harinkjes seems to have a better lunchmenu. They serve delicious soft icecream next door.

Lovely location, simple but "gezellige" interior and excellent food. Three course menu at €35 good value. The menu is small which indicates focus on high quality. The owner is very personable and makes you feel very welcome. As there not that many tables, making a reservation during the summer season is a good idea

My wife and I spent a most enjoyable evening at Restaurant de Hinde this evening. It was my wife's birthday celebration, so we wanted something a bit special and we weren't disappointed!

The food, service and ambience were all A1. The waiting staff were extremely knowledgeable and went to great lengths to ensure that we knew what we were ordering! There isn't an English menu, but that didn't matter because the staff were so friendly, helpful and attentive.

My wife ate from the 3 course set menu (€35) whilst I chose from the most enjoyable a la carte. The overall cost was very much as we would have expected for a superb meal with drinks and coffee.

Thank you very much to all concerned. We certainly hope to be back next year!

We had a great lunch here. Nice view over the water, lovely interior, relaxed atmosphere but great simple food. Had a perfect rib eye steak and home made apple cake and some nice gluhwine. Small and frequently updated menu.

There are worse places to visit than Hindeloopen, a small and picturesque yachting village on the Frisian coast which used to provide captains for the Dutch East India fleet. These days the main draw is tourism, with the harbour in full view of the De Hinde restaurant. You'll have to leave your vehicle at one of the parking areas, as the village frowns on car use.
We had something to celebrate and we remembered the warm welcome at this family-operated restaurant we had been given on several earlier occasions. And what a nice place to enjoy the view whilst sat at a perfect two-seater by the window. The busy terrace is a bit of a downside, as the servers are constantly running in and out. It wasn't as peaceful as we had envisaged. But soon, in winter, De Hinde and its typical Dutch dishes comes into its own. Then quiet, peaceful and atmospheric. And tasty.
After a delightful very Dutch pea soup amuse gueule, our roads split: a great rib-eye for me and my wife took the menu with the turbot as choice of the day. 'Preskop' was a rather unusual starter. I'm more familiar with this dish in Belgium. Dessert: summer fruits, ice-cream… Excellent! Price/quality ratio just right. We'll be back.
