Taste and experience the maritime atmosphere in the Kop van de Haven

You enter and you imagine yourself on a ship. You can see the sea water all around you. Every detail makes you experience and taste the raw, maritime beauty of IJmuiden, all day long. You can tell by the dishes, the interior and the presentation.

Culinary delight

Do you like to linger at the dinner table with, for instance, a delicious cod on the menu? Then you and your guests will certainly love the round table that slowly turns while dining and offers you a different view every other moment.  Of course you can also choose another fine spot for your culinary delight.

Fish & Chips

Do you want a quicker bite the way it is served in an oyster bar? But fancy rather Fish & Chips or a different (fish) dish? You sit (or hang) on the bar stool at the high table in a relaxed manner while you see ships locking in and out.


On a trip with friends or family? Are you going to Newcastle or do you want to see the ships set off over there between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.? Flump into a chair in that part of our restaurant and enjoy all the activities of the sturdy harbour.

Around the Kop

In and around our restaurant de Kop van de Haven you experience a unique combination of nature, harbour activities, shipping traffic and round trips.

You look over the sea, the sturdy harbour and locks and the historical coastal fortification Forteiland.
