Coming to this restaurant was one of the best experiences we had during the Eastern weekend. We didn't ask for the tasting menu but we enjoyed all the dishes, especially the cockles, cod and rib-eye. Regarding the wines, I asked two glasses of different red wines and both were excellent but I realized that other tables eating different food were... More

We dined here during Easter weekend. We were very impressed by the chefs menu and the excellent wine pairings offered. Very interesting flavours and excellent use of local, seasonal ingredients. Highly recommended.

Besides very good and tasty dishes, we were overwhelmed with the large sized portions. I can highly recommend the "groentetuin" that looks as good as it tastes. Also it deviates from the regular ingredients. I usually do not enjoy vegetarian dishes, but this was clearly an exception. When the main course of a (very well prepared) tournedos was served, I...

Dining at Caracol is an experience not available anywhere else on the island. The Michelin star apprenticeships of both the chef and maitre'd are evident throughout the meal. From the moment you make a reservation and they inquire about allergies or aversions so that they can completely customize your meal if you'd like, it is all in the details. From... More

A gem of a restaurant discovered on the idyllic island of Terschelling during travels to The Netherlands. Michelin Star worthy in terms of food, service and atmosphere. Chef owner Werner Zuurman impresses with beautifully crafted dishes prepared with local ingredients, many sourced from Caracol's own gardens. Friendly, knowledgable staff and perfectly lit dining room. Wine list well rounded with a... More

A wonderful night out! Perfect food with fresh local products and a wonderful service. We liked the place: cosy, urban touch, and modern local touch. A shame we didn't stay at the hotel. But for sure we will next time.

This should at least be a MIchelin Bib Gourmand. Local oysters, mussels, fish, vegetables, herbs and flowers from their own garden. Beautifully presented and prepared. The 4 course is not too much. Live a litte!

It was one of my favorite restaurants in Terschelling. Now, I would say: don't go if you are not prepared of paying a nice check. Foods is nevertheless good although for each dish you pay decoration above all. Fish is better than meat, beer is better than wine.
