“A nice, good quality fish restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We wanted to go to a fish restaurant whilst staying in Enkhuisen. We naturally looked in trip advisor and ended up in the Markerwaard. I must say, the complaints about sloopy service were in my opinion, completely unfounded. We didn't order a starter so it did take about half an hour until our meal arrived, but I think this is acceptable. The food itself was definitely good quality and compared with standard Enkhuisen prices was OK.The staff were nice and ( for us) could speak good english. They even had menus in English. I can't really understand the complaints of some of the people. I certainly found no reason to find fault

“Delicious food, lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Visited here on our first night in Enkhuizen. The staff were welcoming and friendly, even to us English-speakers. The food was really well cooked and came with a great range of accompaniments. They also had a good range of beer on offer. The atmosphere was a good balance of lively and local.

“Shame about the service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

The food was nice but my partner and I both found our waitress to be quite rude. Despite having an English menu up outside the restaurant, we found the staff to be less than accommodating towards non Dutch-speakers.

“Nice Food, Rude Waitress.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

We ate here on our first night in Enkhuizen because it had an English version of the menu, and we wanted a nice relaxing start. Unfortunately, that was not to be.

On entering the restaurant and asking for a table, the only English-speaking waitress told us, in a most disparaging tone, that she "supposed" we could have the last table. We were given menus, but found that my partner had been given a version of the menu lacking the English translation. We asked for a replacement, and were, distractedly, told that we'd been given one. When the waitress finally returned to take our orders (with no menu being given), we'd shared the one menu we could understand, and took it as an honest mistake, and due to the fact that the restaurant was busy.

We ordered and, upon ordering a carafe of wine, I was given a dirty look along with the comment "Oh, and you're old enough?".. a similar look was given after she returned my ID and reluctantly wrote it down. When the wine arrived, with a different (much more polite) waitress, who didn't speak English, it was the wrong one, and we had to rely on a kind couple on the table next to us to translate this for us. It was replaced and, when seeing our original waitress again, we were given a smirk and an 'apology'.

The same waitress also performed the same menu trick on us when we ordered desserts.

The food and portions were pleasant, but not exceptional, but the whole experience was rather spoiled by our rude waitress!

“Great value, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We ate here on a busy Saturday night. The set menu was great value for money as well as being delicious. The restaurant was full, so the atmosphere was good and despite some sloppy service we really enjoyed the meal and the evening.
