Culinary island adventure with flair

At Jef and Nadine’s 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. Jef’s modern and creative cuisine has classic roots and has been awarded a Michelin Star. For his inspired and elegant dishes Jef uses a wide range of quality local produce. Nadine pours generous glasses of a variety of wines. We recommend the wine selection!

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.

The recently restored Bij Jef is in Den Hoorn, the largest and most southern village on the island. The long sandy beaches, the salty sea breeze and the vast nature reserves ensure breath-taking scenery in every season for wonderful walks or bike rides. The perfect place for a gastronomic break with international flair.

Garden & Terrace

Through the lounge’s patio doors you walk straight on to the terrace and into the garden overlooking the green fields of Texel.



Texel is the largest island of a group of islands called the Waddeneilanden. It is the perfect place for a short or longer holiday. ‘Bij Jef’ is located in Den Hoorn, the most southern town of the island. Wide open sandy beaches, fresh sea breezes and large Nature Reserves are tempting in any season to enjoy long walks or bicycle rides. The picturesque town of Den Hoorn has a rich heritage reflecting a turbulent past, remnants of which are the many warehouses in the Herenstraat and the harbour lock, where ships used to unload their wares.
