We had fresh fish (we know, we saw it before it got grilled)! Nice pototoes, crispy salad, good sauces. Try and fit in a dessert, the cheescake was really melt in your mouth. The service was very good, and the place is pleastantly decorated (sea theme of course). In winter, don't leave it too late, in general people don't seem... More

We enjoyed on two evenings in that week we spent on Ameland the nice atmosphere in the restaurant StrAnders. We like fish and seafood and with the well cooked dishes we spent really nice evenings there. Our recommendations are the fish- and the seafood platter. Enjoy!

We went to that restaurant without reservation and luckily get a nice table during the peak hours. The staff was very kind and even spoke a bit of English and German. The choice of food and beverages are great. The order was very fast and fresh...The ambiance reminded me of a living room with lots of wooden elements and cozy... More

My husband and I just had dinner at StrAnders. What a pleasant surprise. We have known the restaurant from the outside for a while now, having made several trips to Ameland in the last year. The outside and location didn't draw me in, but I'd heard that it was good so we decided to finally try it tonight and I'm... More

Understated from the outside but refreshingly simple inside. Good selection of fish dishes which we really enjoyed. Took quite a while to be served but this apparently is the Ameland way! Just sit back and enjoy.

If you are looking for something more than the standard touristy menu, then this is the place. The fish dishes were fresh and well presented however the chips just the regular Dutch affair. There is a range dishes to choose for the meat lovers. There is also a take away area if you just want to enjoy the food without... More

Tucked along the road from Buren to the beach lies StrAnders (word-play on "beach" and "different"...?), a cosy smallish eatery that is run by a young and enthusiastic crew, with a very high-quality focus on fish & seafood. The moment you step inside here, you feel you've hit on the kind of overall dining experience that is often hard to... More
