The legend

El Capitan

The sultry afternoon sun glistens on the calm waters of the North Sea, and there is murmuring in the harbour. It is the stories of monstrous creatures and ruthless pirates that are told. Which course is still safe to sail? But also another story needs to be told: that of Ultramarijn, the cosiest secret behind the dunes.


Behind the dunes of Scheveningen

The legend is about The Captain and his hidden gem Ultramarijn. A cosy gastropub where music, a good atmosphere and cocktails come together. A place where travellers from all ends of the ocean sat around the table to trade their newfound treasures from the Spice Islands. A pitstop for those on their way back home.

Bitterballen & genever

The owner, you might ask? You will likely find him with genever in one hand and a bitterbal in the other. The Captain is a Dutch legend who knows more than just salt and pepper to spice food and drinks. He will surprise you with cocktails that turn up the heat and, of course, some Dutch herring, masked in flavours you have never tasted before. From ginger to juniper berries, we can testify you’ll be hooked as soon as you try it.

Get underway

Moving away from the mercurial moods of the sea, The Captain took it upon himself to share his spice combinations with his ‘arrr… hearties of The Hague’. Note that anyone that wants to have a taste is his hearty. His mate. Wanderers, traders or even sea monsters never leave this gastropub without a tale to tell. Ultramarijn is a place for memories.
