The waiter willfully ignored us. The smoked eel and bier was so good I wanted to order more and relax and enjoy the beautiful view there. Despite making eye contact with me when we requested her attention (many times), she would not come by the table. Never came back to us. At one point it was obvious she was pretending she we didn't exist. Other tables near us also got shunned (not locals). The waiter seemed to focused tables with locals, who got excellent service. After, half an hour of waiting, I had to approach her at the register to request the bill. It was a tense interaction. Real shame because the food and the view was awesome. I would have gladly given them a whole lot more of my money. But no worries, plenty of other great bars and restaurants on the strip who care about costumer service.

Someone forgot to wash off the detergent while making our coffees, so their tasted revolting. Incredibly noisy place, talking was nearly impossible. Couldn't hunt down the waiter when we wanted to pay.

This bar has the most kinds of beers of the town Volendam. It's a small pub were you can enjoy good music (sometimes a bit wrong like 'take on me')

Small, cozy lunchroom attended by a very young, enthusiastic and "couldn't-be-nicer" couple. Every time I tried the poffertjes there they were great: hot and dry in the outside, soft and humid inside. It usually gets a litlle time to be served because poffertjes, pancakes and fries are made at order so they are served steaming. If you're not in a hurry, is is perfect. The belgian waffels are also good.

Thank MaryZ316
