Sealicious food for ‘king customer’ TEXT: DAAN APPELS  |  PHOTOS: JACO DUVEKOT

Domburg is home to one of the most beautiful beaches in Zeeland. Beach Pavilion Oase is the heart of this clean and stunning family beach. Just a two-minute walk from the centre of Domburg, Oase offers that little extra bit of service for both parents and children. Most importantly, their seafood is amazing. The lobsters, oysters and North Sea soles are caught only a couple of hours before their final journey to your plate. Adult customers can enjoy their ‘fruits de mer’ while the children play in the big playground. In the meantime, the main duty of the staff is to make you feel at home as much as possible, explains owner Jaco Duvekot. “In our service, we go just a bit further than our competitors. For example, outside we have seats with pillows that heat 36  |  Issue 39  |  March 2017

up electrically on a cold day. And our staff are willing to fulfil almost all our clients’ requests. Oase uses a very Dutch slogan: the customer is king.” Inside the Oase is a freshly renovated architectural delight, with turquoise and sandy colours that make you feel like you are immersed in the surrounding nature.

What doubles that feeling are the windows around you. If you have a table in the middle of the restaurant, you have a 270degree view of the beach. Duvekot: “The lengthy view on a sunny day is stunning from the pavilion, but on a windy or stormy day the experience is even more unique.”
