BIJ JEF charged me with a 200 euros bill as a fine for not attending the dinner reservation I had made for my birthday evening, spent at the hospital for health issues. While it may be understandable that establishments have such laws to cover revenue...More

You can choose from a 3, 5, or 7 course tasting menu, which I believe range in price from 75 euro to 100 euro. Wine pairings are also possible (the pairing is actually a better deal than just ordering a glass of wine a la...More

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

I dont have to tell you this restaurant serves excellent food, the star tells you that, so let's focus on how this place stands out. First the location. Texel is a beautiful and tranquil island. Now imagine one of the smallest villages there and here...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
