Quiet evening meal away from the busy highstreet. Some of the outdoor seating allow a view of the sea, otherwise you may like to watch people gently moving along the dyke. Service and food are of an acceptable standard. No table cloth.

The restaurant is located in the town centre which is very useful. It looks very authentic and quaint on the inside and this is also the case with the interior decorations. It was, however, very dark inside even though we visited on a sunny day. We thought there was no terrace so sat inside but several days later we discovered... More

Nice looking restaurant but with average food. The goose cheese on the salad came from a factory, the carpaccio was poor but the meat was good. Dessert was standard but ok. I suppose this is what you should expect in most places on Vlieland.

A must see! Dining on this terrace at the sea. We ate spare ribs. They were good, but due to the price of €17 I give this place 3 stars

Lovely quaint atmosphere, friendly staff, good wine list but sadly the service was not attentive and the food was very average to poor. Would suggest it is better for coffee, pre- or post dinner drinks. Nice big terrace overlooking the waddenzee.

The staff was very friendly but the food was average, at best. Ordered the Ierse entrecote(Irish Sirloin Steak) and it was cooked as ordered (medium to medium rare and was bright pink throughout) but was dry and a bit tough. Another had the haddock which was as quite good but portion was rather small for the price. Seating was a... More

Fresh food, pure ingredients, nicely presented by friendly staff. And they do give you a voucher for a refund if you visit them again within two months' time. Although they do not really that to have people coming back more than once.

Despite our very late arrival, the staff at De Oude Stoep were very welcoming. Excellent food and a great atmosphere were just what we were looking for. We liked it so much we came back the next night!

If you like the typical island atmosphere and still expect a delicious diner this is the place to be!
