Evert Smit coordinated one of our family birthdays. From a warm reception with cake, up to a tour of the smokehouse, the visit to Volendam (including the awesome family photo in local costume) and a great closing dinner all was well orchestrated. The restaurant is located on the waterfront and offers great private parking. I would recommend going here for... More

This restaurant is very nice. The food is delicious and it has good portion size. The staff is very kind and friendly. We had a seafood soup, hering and fish n'chips. The fish n'chips were perfect! Plus, the restaurant had an amazing view of the marina.

We visited Smit-Bokkum on our Christmas trip to Europe. We had seen the family featured on the Travel Channel and my husband really wanted to try the eel. The eel lived up to his expectations and then some. The family was very hospitable and we enjoyed seeing where the eel was smoked.

As smoked seafood is one of our favourite dishes, we booked a table here for a nice lunch in late December. We got on bus 316 from Amsterdam Centraal to Volendam, a 25 minutes ride one way, for only 10 Euros roundtrip. Cheap ride! Arrived half an hour before our meal time and walked around this lovely little town that... More

This family restaurant, located in a quiet, but attractive corner of the touristic village of Volendam offers a selection of the best fish this corner of the world has to offer. In winter, it is cosy and welcoming, in summer it offers a lovely view from its seaside terrace as an added bonus. "Evert", the owner's son and maitre d',... More

On the side of the restaurant you can also buy fried cod bits to take with you. We didn't eat in the restaurant. Seriously, it's a 10 min walk from Volendam Centre, but get your fried cod bits (kibbeling) over here. Delicious. High on the price if you look at the average price, but it's worth it. We enjoyed it!

Super!!! All the different qualities of smoked fish were unbelievable! Never tried something so delicius like this. It was a "note" of smoking but really delicate! And it was only the starter! We closed with a fantastic smoked seabass from the Nord Seas. And a very friendly staff. To visit again.
