Launch party Restaurant Catch by Simonis


Recently an amazing new seafood restaurant opened in the Marina Scheveningen: Catch by Simonis. The restaurant was built from scratch, in the form of a vessel, giving you the idea you're having lunch or dinner on a luxurious boat or ship. The staircase is one you would expect on a cruise ship, the deck offers wonderful views of the harbour; the "Captain's room" can be used for meetings and private parties. What more can you ask for?

I attended the luscious launch party which was really spectacular, especially in these economically challenging times! Lobster, oysters, caviar, sushi, Champagne... you name it, they served it. The seafood was the best quality ever! That should come as no surprise to those who know the Simonis family. They own several seafood shops and restaurants & supply many restaurants in the Scheveningen area.

As you can immagine, their menu consists of lots of seafood (think salmon, tuna, scallops, lobster and more), but offers some meat and vegetarian options as well: wagyu carpaccio, ribeye steak, caesar salad, caprese and ravioli. The surroundings are lovely, so besides lunch or dinner, why not go to Catch by Simonis for a High Tea or High Wine?

I have to say... it was an unforgettable experience. Delicious food, wonderful wines, Champagne by Veuve Cliquot, a lot of people (approximately 1000 guests) and really great music! Dutch saxophone player Candy Dulfer gave quite a show... the same goes for Berget Lewis and The Crooners. Wow... I danced the night away and will definitely come back soon!
