We have been enjoying our lunches, aperitifs and dinners for many years in a row now in this marina restaurant. Never been disappointed, often surprised. Recommended.

This restaurant is located on the waterside on a busy waterway. So you can sit here and see lots of ships of all shapes and sizes go past. Personally I love this, so I normally eat here when I visit Enkhuizen. The restaurant itself is attractively furnished and you can stop for a drink or a full meal. The food... More

It is never fun to ask for checking the menu ingredients for our son (wrt food allergies), but it gets really frustating if the waiter is showing no ability/interest to help. After mentioning that we have no choice: to be sure or leave (we do not want him to get sick), the mindset was changed and the lady was prepared... More

This is the first restaurant that I have ever rated as low as a "2" but based on the quality of service that rating is about right. It was our impression that the servers did not care if we were there or not. The location, however, is good. We would not return to this restaurant.

As non-Dutch speaking Aussies, we have found some restaurants in The Netherlands to be a bit of a challenging experience ... but not so at De Mastenbar. We enjoyed every minute of our time there - the young lady looking after us was personable, helpful and thoroughly professional. The food was good - very large serves .... but once again... More

I agree with a lot of people, the best thing if this restaurant is the location. The food is average, but you enjoy the terrace on the waterfront with a view of the ships entering Enkhuizen harbour. The service is very friendly and inside you have a nice fireplace and a cosy atmosphere.

The best thing about this restaurant is its location - the view over the harbour is quite lovely. The food was nice but not exceptional, and we found our waitress to be quite rude. However, they are accommodating of non-Dutch speakers. Overall, a nice meal out.

The place is certainly well located. Pretty cold night and they had a really comfortable fireplace to sit around. But found the food to only slightly better than average. Chef made some good attempts but didn't quite pull it off.

De Mastenbar is located near the ijsselmeer. The view from the terrace or from the restaurant is absolutely stunning. As a vegetarian I am used to be treated as an alien. The food was more than average and the service very friendly. We will certainly come back and back and back again!
