We had 2 geb kebbeling for Euro 12.50 each which was perfect and filling. The service was really good and we were very, very impressed. (See photos). Other members of the tour group who opted to go elsewhere later expressed their dismay with their choices for lunch.

We were a little short on time for lunch, being part of a tour that needed to leave at a certain time, so decided to go to the restaurant recommended by our tour guide, “De Lunch”, as we were promised good (or was it “quick”) service and an ok lunch. Well if it was just an ok lunch we were... More

My daughters are addicted to fish and chips and we therefore have to actively look for them. We were recommended this restaurant by our tour guide. Boy did it turn out to be good. We absolutely loved the fish and chips, the best outside of UK that we have tasted. The service was also very friendly and efficient. Highly recommended... More

Fast food! Fast service*! Pretty much sums it up, * We took the meal the waiter recommended. That might have helped to keep the speed up. The food was ok. The premises are cozy (or a bit worn, depending on your viewpoint, I guess). A place where tourists are directed to, but the bus loads. Who one might suspect has... More

Absolutely the best "fish and chips" this American country girl has ever had. Fresh fried cod a generous helping of fries and a small slaw/salad. Very quaint little restaurant setting out on the lake and looking out over the great North Sea. We also had fried mussels they were outstanding. The bill was more than reasonable.

After taking a walk at Volendam village, our tour group had lunch at De Lunch. The cafe is small but cozy, I saw mostly all of the tables were full because it was lunch time. The interior is unique, rustic design. We got table at the back part of cafe. The waitress served us quickly and offered 2 choices of... More

On a recent visit to Volendam , my wife and I decided to have lunch at De Lunch. We decided to try something new for us and both ordered the kibberlings [ fried cod bits] and fried mussels. The meal was excellent. We both like fried fish if it is done with a light touch and that was the case... More
