Dinner with Harbor Lights

Casual lunch or a romantic dinner on the harbor, this cozy restaurant never disappoints. As a frequent traveler I have enjoyed it many times. The food is top quality and offers a wide variety on the menu. The service is always excellent and friendly. Love this place!

The inside has more atmosphere, but the deck has a good view. The service is rather slow, even though it was not very busy when we arrived. The local recipe fish soup was very good, but the rest of the meal was unmemorable. Volendam is all shops and restaurants, so there is plenty of choice.

Although the restaurant seemed to have a friendly authentic dutch atmosphere, the experience turned out to be a big disappointment. The food looked good, but the service was so horrible (very slow, and extremely rude when we made a comment about it) that we decided to cancel the meal and leave after our apetizers. There are much better options alongside... More

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.... More

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.
