They don't accept credit cards, none! Rude owner kept repeating "I'm sorry?" "I'm sorry?" like he did not understand the need for a tourist to pay with a credit card. They give no receipt either, they just write down the total in a napkin. What a joke. It is all about keeping a low profile for the tax man, I... More

Having a tour lunch in Lunchroom De Koe. Food wise is very normal. The timing for consuming is too fast that we have not finish a the starter, came the fish follow by the dessert. Don't really have time to enjoy the food.

The meals are delicious and tasty, not to salty and love the soup (entree). The main course is steak with salads, so much salads. The restaurant is very busy, people come and go, people in group come and go as well. So busy and very fast serving. Delicious meals!

We visited this restaurant as part of a Globus tour group. The owner greeted all of us and recommended select dishes, especially the apple pie! Each course of the meal was very good with multiple offerings to select from for the main course. Good food, prepared well and served attractively by a pleasant staff. A very nice evening.

Descent food, descent price and good taste. The location is right in the heart of Volendam. The staffs are courteous and efficient in serving the guests, the space is rather small, so better watch out during the lunch hour you might have to wait for a little while

We were drawn to this place because it describes itself as a tea room in its sign, but not how we English would describe a tea room. It was warm and comfortable; you are not given a menu, rather the staff tell you about the set menu, and if that is not what you are looking for you can push... More

If you are in a hurry and don't want to spend too much on a reliable, mostly fishy, lunch, then this little place in the very middle of the tourist street by the harbour is a safe bet. And isn't it nice to be served by friendly waitresses in what is generally considered to be the Dutch national costume?
