IJmuiden still is not a very crowded beach. Zilt aan Zee's staff is alert and the cook is not slow. We had a wonderful thick plaice, with excellent sauce and salade. You can sit at the table for as long as you want. Nice!

Had mussels and sole. They come with french fries and vegetables. Verty well prepared, great taste. We also liked the ambiance of the restaurant, where you can sit inside and outside. Service was excellent but a little slow given how busy it was. In weekends...More
