This restaurant overlooks the harbour and offers a reasonable variety of fish and meat dishes. We were with 2 vegetarians and they did not enjoy their meal, which I think was either a moussaka or spaghetti dish. The service was very slow (which partly reflects the restaurant's popularity) and the staff were polite enough, but you would not call them friendly.

We had a nice lunch here. The food was more than satisfactory.
The fried mussels very nice. The cod fish okay, the pork tenderloin with mushroom sauce nice. Service very good, thank you.

Had lunch with my family during a day trip to Volendam. There is inside and outside seating, and on days with good weather the outside seating is great but crowded. Service can be improved. Waitress was friendly but forgot items, and was also unsure about availability of some menu items even after she had checked (multiple checks were needed).Food is good but not sensational. All in all an average experience.

If you have lots of time, go here. It has a nice open seating high up and food is good but service is slow.
The guy has and English menu but after struggling to explain brings it out. The menu says TOAST and they insist that they did not write the menu so it comes untoasted.

Early in the season so the waterfront was not too crowded. The terrace is protected from the cold wind. The menu is extensive and reasonable. Very pleasant lunch in pleasant surroundings.
