'Gerechies' of meat, fish and vegetables

Sometimes you have to take a risk. Not taking the usual way, but looking for alternative ways. And that is exactly what our chefs in Het Schoutenhuys do every day. They create small dishes, which are changed every two weeks for new variations. What remains the same: the undiminished passion to show the best local and regional products. Because with so many rich ingredients in our island backyard, it’s a joy to cook! The land and the sea reveal so much beauty every season. A selection from the – very long – list: lamb, cockles, asparagus, shiitake mushroom, sheep’s cheese, honey.

We serve both cold and warm dishes. The signature is clearly Texel, but the chefs also play with oriental influences. Progress is slowly being made towards main dishes (hoofdgerechies). The ‘journey’ eventually leads to wonderful desert (nagerechies). Sweet or savory; we keep that a secret too. Come taste and experience for yourself!

The Gerechies van de Schout costs € 41.50 per person.


An unusual dinner requires a special entourage. And you can count on that in Het Schoutenhuys. The Drink and  Spice Room is located in the oldest stone-made building on Texel, dating out of 1652. The Schout lived within these walls and this striking building served as a courthouse. You can still see historical details everywhere. It creates an intimate ambience. Perfect for an evening dining with your partner, family or friends.
