Delicious food, often made from local products like a variety of Northsea fish, shells, crab and of course Texel lamb. Jef is really a mastercook, creating stunning yet harmonious flavours. I loved the sweet Northsea crab with a mild light sour yoghurt style sauce. Fantastic...More

Michelin-star restaurant with a Boutique Hotel attached, on the tiny island of Texel. We keep coming back here every year mostly because of Jef's extraordinarily good cuisine. His style is focused on a very light, fresh cuisine, using almost exclusively the excellent local produce from...More

Bij Jef is set in the charming village on Den Hoorn on Texel, ideal place to get away from it all. Bij Jef is currently undergoing significant extension work but that in no way detracted from a first class dining experience, produce as you would...More

Visiting Texel during the off season on a foggy sunday evening, we arrived more or less by chance in this restaurant. At the door the reception was very warm. The food was excellent. Don't ask for the menu, but just mention you preferences. In every...More

Although BijJef was already a long time on our wish-list, we only made it today to their hotel/restaurant. We knew Jef was a good cook and Nadine a master sommelier, but we also knew they were on a small island in North-Holland - not really...More

Michelin describes a three star restaurant as 'worth the travel'. Bij Jef certainly is. The place den Hoorn is non-description but the white facade of the restaurant lightens it up. Great appetizers are served in the lounge corner so you get set for the menu...More

The trick is this: do not ask for the menu or the wine list. Just order a glass of champagne and enjoy your first sip and your first amuse in the very tasteful lounge. Imagine milk chocolate, coffee filling with a piece of anjovis on...More
