On the most western part of the Island Vlieland, you will find the Post-house. It is usually rather busy during the day, but the service is fine. They serve special icecream for kids and some pancakes. For dinner at night, spots are rare, you need to reserve well in advance. I did not try it, but I'm sure it is... More

We cycled along the North coast towards the West. There is one place to stop for a break. Food and refreshments are on offer. Playground for smaller children. Service was unremarkable but sufficient.

Nice terrace and a little play area for kids. Sheltered, and a great sun trap if the weather is good. Can get busy just when the beach tour bus drops everyone off. We just had cake and coffee which was average. Others had what looked like pretty hearty sized sandwiches. Getting served is a bit of a bun fight, but... More

It is a must do to hire a bike and take on the 7 km one way trip to the south west point of the island. Het Posthuys is the reward. If the sun is out you can sit on the terrace and enjoy a good lunch or glass of wine or beer. Friendly people, good service and reasonable prices.

Excellent food in a beautiful location, accommodating multi-lingual staff, contemporary menu if a little limited. My choice of main course was cooked to perfection and after eating in at least 8 of the 'top ten' island restaurants, this was by far the best meal. If you choose to cycle and are using satellite nav, choose the car route as this... More

We enjoyed a relaxing break at Posthuys after a windy bike ride. Their terrace is great, it's spacious, sunny and (mostly) covered from the wind by the glass panels at the sides. We had some snacks and a beer. The kcal Weiss beer is very tasteful although it's not produced on the island. The cheese croquets and the local cheese... More

Went here for lunch during a recent trip to Vlieland. The location is stunning. Next to a bird sanctuary, right on the coast. The weather was too windy to sit outside, so we sat in the small restaurant. The tables are very close and at times we has to move, so others could get past. It was very busy and... More
