We took our children for a pre-Christmas dinner. Niels and his charming staff did a marvellous job to spoil us with all there exciting different courses. We really enjoyed is and as a bonus we got an extra dish in the form of lovely cheese. Thank you all again, we will certainly come back.

This was a weird experience for us: waiters were very nice and interior is fine. Everything looks good but the food was just not good. Somethings were kinda experimental, ok, but of all 7 courses only the desert we liked. All other plates had something which was just not tasty. And that is what it is all about in the... More

Average for Scheveningen (high) prices for the average meals and slow service. We had 3-course menu and all 3 round were below expectations. We were waiting our main course for 40 min because the waiter forgot to communicate it to the kitchen (at the end I ask and got discount /free drinks/).

When I last reviewed this Restaurant, I found it difficult to fault. My return last week was therefore a big disappointment. Physically it hasn´t changed. It sits in an excellent position overlooking the inner harbour - and yet change it has. We went for the birthday of my daughter-in-law who has also eaten here in the past and enjoyed it.... More

French living in The Hague, after testing many places in the city and around, we definitely vote Het Gouden Kalf the best restaurant in town. For a very reasonable price, you'll discover fantastic dishes, artistically presented and prepared only with the freshest products. Fish are a delight, meat is cooked to the perfection, from the amazing starters to the unexpected... More

这家有些家庭式的餐馆不支持点餐。主厨会在港口码头精选当天的新鲜海鲜(主要是鱼)配合自己的创意烹制当日的餐食。一顿proper diner一般是四道餐食(可选四道或三道),开胃菜和餐后甜点另算。环境优雅服务相当周到很热情。这家餐馆的消费在比较高的那一头,因为他们的食物新鲜并且涵盖的食物范围很广,从西式的Tapas到法式的cuisine到中式的餐点(荷兰厨子做龙虾饺子您各位就琢磨去吧,情怀也许更重要吧,等你见到账单也许就同意我了~233333333),都是由主厨当天现场烹制,加上门店地理位置确实在景区码头,整体还算是公平。Alright!我想我还是会再来的, when I have a girl friend to spoil。我很喜欢。 This restaurant impresses me with their service and the way chef creat cuisines ranging from Europe to Asia (That what I got at least, maybe you will experience more). We enjoyed the food and the value behind it:" to spoil our customers ". I would say that the price is... More

My son lives in Scheveningen and suggested we try the Gouden Kalf. The menu is fixed , however you can choose the number courses. They will make accommodations for allergies and strong dislikes. We had five courses. Each course was incredibly unique and exquisitely presented. The blending of flavours were very original and very well put together. The cheese plate... More

The Gouden Kalf is always great value from a food / price / discovery perspective. Unfortunately we were sidelined by the staff (because we had the courage to bring our two children ?) and had to schedule two hours between courses ...... Kids patient enough, but they were tested a bit too much.

My daughter selected this restaurant near the water in Scheveningen. The location was perfect with views of the water. The staff/service was slow at the beginning but the pace picked up after twenty minutes or so. We chose a four course menu that was the chef's surprise! We were surprised with all the courses: the texture and fragrant spices for... More

Chose the restaurant partly for its setting in the harbour and weren't disappointed. Nice open plan restaurant with a good view of the kitchen. Nice hostess and other staff who got everyone's mood straight away. Knowledgeable, friendly but never overwhelming. And for the food: fresh, tasteful, sometimes quite original and nicely presented. The smoked scallops and the red mull with... More

Description
Enjoying the art of cooking and hospitality with a view of the typical boats in the Scheveningen Harbor. At Het Gouden Kalf, everything revolves around our fresh and seasonal products, a warm atmosphere and accompanying wines. By fresh, we really mean fresh on that exact day. Every morning, our day starts with choosing the freshest and finest ingredients the suppliers and fish markets (known as visafslag) have to offer. These ingredients form the basis of the 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6- course menu and the à la carte dishes that we form to your wishes. Lunch, dinner, meat of the week, fish of the week or vegetarian dishes we create an experience for everyone. Inside or on the best terrace of the entire harbour! We enjoy an easygoing atmosphere and proudly offer you a varying selection of 35 wines that you can order by the glass. Feel free to ask us for advice or experiment with our wines on your own. See you soon
