Food and drinks

The Sealcentre has its own restaurant: the Summer Pavilion. In the pavilion we mainly serve food and beverages produced in the area. Buy local, eat local!

Opening hours

The Summer Pavilion is open from the 1st of April to the 31st of October, between 10:00 and 17:00. When the restaurant is closed, you can use the coffee machine and the vending machine for small snacks in the visitor centre.

"We serve food and drinks, which are locally produced as much as possible."

Should I make a reservation?

It is not necessary to make a reservation. You can sit inside or outside at our restaurant. In both areas there is room where children can play while you enjoy your coffee and snack or a nice lunch. Doesn't that sound great?

Did you know...

In consultation with the Sealcentre it is possible to book the pavilion for an event. For groups of 15 or more people, we can offer a group discount of 20% on the entrance fee and the option to be seated on the terrace. It is also possible to celebrate your child's birthday party at the summer pavilion. Celebrate their birthday in a fun, unique and educational way! All group visits and booking requests can be submitted to the following email address: reserveringen@zeehondencentrum.nl.

Is the Summer Pavilion easily accessible?

Our Summer Pavilion is located at the back of our centre. This means that you first have to walk through our Wadden Garden to get there. You can reach the terrace via the shell paths. What a lovely stroll! Wheelchair users can also reach the pavilion via this route. The path is wide enough for a wheelchair or pram.
