Stick your bare feet in sea sand and enjoy Set menu 7 seafood courses eat on paper plates. You must bring your own drinks and glasses they have none. Great for parties and relatively cheep as no drinks bill

It is a welcoming beach experience with quality food. We especially enjoyed that they went above and beyond to serve non-fish dishes even though they are a seafood place.

We had such a nice outing with the extended family! 22 of us. Relaxing, toes in the sand, eating until you can no more. If you are looking for a change in scenery and enjoy seafood, you can really visit De Vette Mossel!
