Bij Jef Restaurant & Hotel
There’s one thing you notice immediately when you stay at Bij Jef: you’re on an island. There’s something about the fresh colours, clear light and hip but comfortable decor that perfectly complements the Dutch island atmosphere, and the hotel is just a short walk from the beach. At Bij Jef on Texel not only can you enjoy exceptional dining but also wake up refreshed. The contemporary design merges with the restaurant’s innovative and unconventional character. The individually designed unique suites are well appointed with double rain showers and boxspring beds with the famous Texel duvets made from local lambs’ wool. The suites offer beautiful views of the island’s green fields. Chef Jef and sommelier Nadine are true culinary royalty. His dishes gain their distinctive flavours from the pure and naturally saline local ingredients. The perfect place for a gastronomic break with international flair.
