I wanted a sweet Dutch pancake and the apple one I had was good with powdered sugar. My husband enjoyed the soup of the day. Service was OK, which was not a surprise in the Netherlands. They don't hover over you here and that is OK.

Had our lunch meal here. Enjoyed homemade fish soup, husband and hamburger and fries served wit mayo (sinfully rich combo) preferred rather than ketchup. Nice view and lovely service.

The service is worse than had. If you thought Dutch service is bad, this one sets new standard to bad. The food is OK at most. Do yourself a favor cross the street to an other place.

We were on a sunday in volendam. Had difficulty in general to find a free table on terrace but got one here. Only negative is that there is an other small house between restaurant and the water. So no nice view But the food was really good! Would go back a second time :)

It was very fogging and cold so we decided to go in to the restaurant to get some food and beer. They did have a good beer selection. We ordered our food and asked for a boiled egg for our baby. The waitress looked very puzzled and said they could not do us a boiled egg (despite us ordering omelettes!!).... More

We were visiting Volendam for a few hours when a heavy rain shower started and as it was lunchtime we popped into this restaurant to get out of the rain and for something warming to eat. As we knew that we would be having a hearty dinner later in the day we only wanted something light for lunch such as... More

The restaurant looks nice and cosy. What I immediatly notices, which was kinda unhandy, were the seats/tables located just in front of the restaurant. Due to this it was very difficult to pass to the inside (you literally had to ask people to move). Inside the service was started, but there wasn't really a "welcome" by the host of the... More
