After a long walk through the dunes, it was time for lunch. Staff seemed pleasant but disinterested. The interior is a mess, half completed projects, bare walls, plaster missing and very dark. Food was very average, Makro burgers with a Makro salad, totally uninspiring. They mixed our burgers up (salmon and vege) which was unfortunate for my vegan friend who... More

This place used to be an amazing restaurant which blended in nicely with it's surroundings. Now its just some wonky beach house that looks like some sort of dark dungeon from the inside with plastered unpainted walls and dirty floors. My girlfriend and I ordered a coffee, which took forever too arrive. Eventually it was served in a glass cup... More

Due to is somewhat remote location, this restaurant sails relative well by the absence of competitors. I've been here several times over the past years and despite the fancy renewed interior, the place is running down. This time we only had drinks, but the other day, the food was disappointing as well. Toilets had run out of paper and the... More

Parnassia has something like a mythical reputation. I live not too far away from Overveen and have always been awed by its reputation which was, I must confess, all 'hear say'. On a nice spring day in 2017 we decided that we should enjoy the warm spring sun and for the first time in our lives visit Parnassia. The weather... More

Came here after a walk in the dunes with my boyfriend. It was big, warm and busy. It wasn't a problem to find a seat though and the staff were attentive and friendly. Food is OK. It's a typical dutch beach side restaurant! It will be busy pretty much year round and especially so in the summer.

We stopped here after walking in the NP. The place is comfortable and staff is friendly and helpful. We had the lasagna verdure which was good, but unfortunately not hot enough. The bread with dip was also very nice and plenty. Prices are good, especially compared to other places on the beach.

They have several areas and we wanted to sit down in one of the quiet areas as all other areas where packed with screaming children. One member of staff said it was ok but after waiting for a while without service we asked about that and where rudely told that there would be no service in that area and we... More

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.
