Culinary island adventure with flair

At Jef and Nadine’s on Texel not only can you eat really well, but you will also wake up well-rested. The modern design closely ties in with the surprising and unconventional character of the restaurant. Jef’s modern and creative gastronomy has a classic base and has earned a Michelin star. For his fresh and elegant dishes Jef uses a wide range of quality local products. Nadine generously pours the variety of wines for you. We definitely recommend the wine selections!

The suites, each with their own unique design, are all equipped with double rain showers and box-spring beds with the famous Texel duvets made from local lambs’ wool. The suites offer a beautiful view of the island’s green meadows.

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

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.
