I thought I should try the Dutch herring at the edge of the sea, I chose this place and what a lovely choice, I had the best herring sandwich in my whole life (with onions and pickles) for 2.5 Euros, a must try.

There are many places where smoked eel is sold in Volendam, I have tried many of them over the years but the eel at Plat is simply the best. Taste is very good, not to salty. Just great.

We came to Volendam as part of a tour through the Netherlands countryside. The place was crawling with tourist and most of the places just sold useless touristy stuff you can buy back in town. We tried a fish and chips place that was terrible. We then asked where do the locals go? They told us this small place, tucked away from the touristy strip. It looked like a Dutch version of a taco stand. Lots of locals here so we tried it.

We had this sandwich made of raw eel with onions served in a dinner roll...a weird looking sandwich but it was so delicious! We then had their fried fish (Kibbeling) that was also delicious....better than the best fish and chips in London! I would recommend grabbing these two dishes, sit outside of the restaurant and take in the view here in Volendam instead of wasting your time with all the other tourists.

I could not find this place here so I asked TripAdvisor to add it! It's actually a fish shop but TripAdvisor does not have such category, also they do have seating area, so are between a shop and a cafe... Many tourists coming to Volendam only go to the eating places on the main street along the Haven, and miss this wonderful little shop, which is slightly further along. Their kibbeling (fried fish) is heavenly, the best I tried in Volendam, and price is the lowest in my experience. I come with my little boy, and then we sit on the benches facing the sea, nearby, and have our kibbeling, it's amazing! Do give them a try.
