A household name in and around Noordwijk.
Bistro Iets Anders (Something Different) is a Burgundian restaurant in the centre of Noordwijk aan Zee. The “Bistro” is situated in a monumental building, between the large hotels, such as Huis ter Duin, Palace Hotel, Alexander Hotel, and at walking distance from the Hotels van Oranje. At Bistro Iets Anders, the kitchen uses the ancient French traditions in cooking, with pure ingredients and without fancy dress-up or frills. The bistro has room to accommodate 64 guests, is full of atmosphere and utterly French! It is the place for delicious dining at one of the cosy tables in the dining area, or for enjoying our food at the bar. Besides that, there is the tiny “Bistro Privé”, where a group of around 25 to 30 people can enjoy a private evening. It is also possible to book the Bistro exclusively, for larger groups.
We are open for business Monday trough Sunday, from 3 pm.
Bistro Something Different is with great pleasure and passion since January 2018 led by owner Arno Havenaar. Together with his brigade they have a high quality and strive to make you experience an unforgettable evening.
