This is a diner based on 6 to 8 small courses. In every course there's some ingredient from Texel. The ambiance is a over 500 year old building with a few table's. so reservation is a must.

You get about 14 dishes in 4 courses for a reasonable price, about 29 Euro. The quality is all right, but not a high culinairy standard.

On the spot where the schout (sheriff) ate with his companions, is now a characteristic restaurant. The modern kitchen provides a glimpse to the VOC history. The chefs use a range of spices from the East. Eating in the ‘t Schoutenhuys is a definite adventure. We serve the greatest dishes, sized down. “Taste and experience Texel” receives a new dimension.‘Gerechies’You can order various ‘Gerechies’ from the menu. Delicious mini dishes that can be enjoyed through out the evening. Baked mussels, stuffed lambs ham, an oyster with chutney or cheese fondue. Whatever you are served: they are piece-by-piece tasty bites. Sometimes a sturdy ‘bite’ and sometimes with an original character.Taste sensationYou can choose a number of warm or cold ‘Gerechies’, just what you fancy. Would you like to eat more? Then just order extra. There is something tasty for everyone on the menu. To make things easier we have compiled a few menus. You can share a table with friends, family or just the two of you: ‘t Schoutenhuys will offer you an unforgettable culinary evening.
