Locals’ favorites

More and more tourists want to know where and what the locals like to do, see, eat or drink. They, as inhabitants of the city of choice, tend to have better over-all knowledge of the said city. Therefore we’d like to give you a shortlist of restaurants, café’s and otherwise places-to-be, created by the opinions of locals.



Het Plein

Translated to ‘the square’ is an area surrounded by café’s and restaurants where you’ll find a cozy and intimate atmosphere.

De Paas

De Paas cafe is the place to be for beer lovers. De Paas offers 176 bottled beers and the 11 beers from the barrel. Also, in addition to around 11 blend whiskeys, they have about 26 types of malt whiskeys.


Restaurant Lemongrass is beautifully situated in the 2nd inland harbor of Scheveningen and has been a household name in The Hague and surroundings for 12 years because of the excellent price-quality ratio, the much-distinguished wine list, the kind and experienced service and of course the delicious seasonal cuisine where everything is still being prepared by their own chefs.



Athene Palace

Greek Mediterranean Restaurant Athene Palace offers a very diverse number of options. You can, of course, enjoy delicious food and drink, but also company parties, wedding parties and birthdays can be celebrated there.

Brouwcafé De Hofnar

De Hofnar has simple, yet delicious dishes and many ‘package deals’ to choose from.


In restaurant TASCA you will be pampered the old-fashioned way; with the most delicious authentic southern-European dishes. Fresh produce is purchased and cooked on a daily basis. If you have special wishes, you can indicate this with your reservation.





Havana is a cozy restaurant with a casual atmosphere where Thursday through Sunday all tables are set aside after dinner and room is made for the dance floor.


Millers is a restaurant with wine and cocktail bar where, just like in Havana, after dinner, the tables are set aside to make room for the dance floor.

De Paap

This café is a rock-oriented music cafe with a stage where bands can show their skills. On their website, you can find out all about who is going to be on stage for the upcoming week(s).
