Good ambiance, no music, precious apetiser, remarkable meal quality and presentation. Relative long wait for the last courses.

I had a fantastic dinner at Paul's Recept during my weekend stay in Noordwijk aan Zee. The place is worth every euro spent there: the service is friendly and attentive, the interior is cosy and relaxing, and the food is beyond any praises. I tried an exquisite tuna sashimi and a delicious tenderloin cooked to perfection (indeed medium rare instead... More

First time in my life ever refused by a restaurant because I have my baby with me. Came in, asked for table, told we have a child with us, and ushered out. In the process another couple came in, said "we see there's no tables free", and were shown to their table.

My wife and I are staying in Noordwijk for a couple of nights, and we found ourselves driving around looking for an interesting place for dinner (this town is dead in January on a wed night and everything was empty). Paul's was also quiet (its also on a back street) but looked warm and inviting so we decided to take... More

The food at this place is excellent. The problem though is the service. Both speed and attention to detail are lacking. On a normal Saturday evening we had to wait 10 minutes to even be asked what we wanted to drink, another 10 to be served drinks and get a menu and I think in total 20 min before we... More

Food was good but the service was soooo slow. It took 2hrs 45 minutes for a two course meal. We chose a wine pairing option but wine glasses were empty before the courses arrived. Very disappointing.

The food here is always excellent. Never had a bad experience here, and we visit regularly. It is definitely one of the best restaurants in Noordwijk, if not the best.

Owners are a family of Portuguese & Dutch origin and they have managed to blend this into a success formula. Beautiful southernly dishes, very high quality of cooking, friendly service and a look through to the kitchen where everything is prepared in a calm efficiency. The prices are "higher end" but so is the food. And it is still cheaper... More

Great food, ambiance and staff. A little off the beaten track but worth seeking out. Good for a special occasion.

Nice restaurant, exterior and interior do not reflect the hospitality given by serving staff or the quality of food. Staff is just great, you ask them any question round how meals are prepared or what ingredients are being used and they tell you right away. ingredients are fresh and pleasantly prepared and displayed on the tray. Price is on the... More
