We had a lunch with a kids there. The place nicely decorated. Welcome and friendly staff. Our dishes was tasty, but nothing extraordinary. Good local beer. The price is higher than in other places like this we visited during our trip.

As the restaurant that we had picked sent us a decline notice 2 days after we made the webreservation on the day we were out and about, we had to switch to another location - and I am glad we had to.

The staff at D'ouwe Helling were fabulous and not stressed about our 11 person party and very welcoming. The decor is a mix between bistro and 'bruin café' - the choice of music was 60's the evening we were there.

On the food side - all smiles around. Good mixed fish, and the fact that they were willing to split a side of ribs for two of the youngsters really made my evening. That's something I like to see - especially as the remainder of the kid's menu was a bit standard.

The smoked eel was very nice as a starter. We opted for a bottle of the Dutch White which actually worked pretty well with the meals we had.

All in all - I would recommend this place for lunch or informal dinner anytime.

had a delightful lunch on the day we went in June. If day had been nicer, it would have been lovely to sit out on the deck overlooking the water. Meal was superb and wait staff were brilliant. Would definitely go again. Restaurant theme is Marine/fishing due to Volendam once being a thriving fishing port.
