Located in the heart of the center of the only Village at Vlieland, you can find Restaurant Plezant. During our last visit to Vlieland (June 2021), they completely renovated the inside of the restaurant and we had a lovely evening. The restaurant has a really cosy vibe (nostalgic like they say themselves on their website, which is right!).
You can either have dinner or have a drink (with snack) at Restaurant Plezant. The menu is à la carte and you can chose between diverse options of dishes. They also serve a really nice burger!
Restaurant Plezant is open each day of the week from 02:00 PM until 10:00 PM.
