Efficient and friendly service, small dishes. The food is reasonable, nothing more. Suitable for tourists who want to drink coffee \ beer at the marina. To eat there, only if there is no other place and you're really starving.

My first time to volendam. I walked along and passed so many restaurants, cafes, coffee shop and many souvenir shops. We chose this place among others. It has great view, good place to sit and enjoy the beer.

Cathrien is a favorite among Volendam people, as well as with tourists to this lovely town. It is located right in the corner of the harbor with a stunning view of the water and the busy dyke shops. The service is professional and the food never disappoints. Whether you are looking to relax with coffee or enjoy a full meal,... More

what makes this restaurant great is their location just in front of the harbour so nice beer or warm rum will be good to colour the day after touring in this city.we sat down in the terrace even in the winter time because the ambiance of sun down is just lovely with good beer and friendly staff makes it perfect....

Best view of the harbor in Volendam. I loved their tomato soup with an herb cream design artfully drawn on top while my husband enjoyed their fresh cod and a nice local beer. Prices comparable to elsewhere in Volendam but you can't beat the view.
