Rented a scooter near Amsterdam central station and rode to Zaanse Schans and then to Monnickendam. Nice country side. Took 35 minutes by scooter. The views here while eating like much are amazing and relaxing. Don’t be in a hurry. Service polite but slow. Awesome Sunday. Food is nothing to write home about it that is not why we stopped.

Very nice place with an excellent service, nice presented but tasteless food! It was really pleasant to spend time there but very disappointing to dine. All dishes were without any taste: gambas, meat, escargot.. The only thing that was good - french fries.

Visited here for lunch one afternoon and it was well worth it.

Set in the beautiful surroundings of the old-time harbour, you can sit outside in the warmer months, inside the bar/restaurant has an old-time charm to it, typical of what you may imagine of a Dutch fishing port tavern/bar.

The staff were very welcoming and the local beer went down very well. I ordered a home-made burger from the menu, as my first choice (the fish of the day) had sold out, which the waitress was very apologetic about. But this was not their fault, it was just a popular dish.

My burger tasted very good and it was presented excellently. I got a large amount of chunky fries too, which were seasoned to perfection.

The whole ambience of the place was very pleasant and everyone in there (other than some cyclists from Belgium) seemed to be local at the time I was there, yet really friendly to anyone who came in, be they tourists or not.

Great place for lunch! We had a large sandwich that was very reasonably priced and delicious. Staff was super friendly.

Lovely restaurant. Very reasonable priced. Excellent food and good service and friendly staff. We arrived late on a Friday afternoon and had to find a place to eat. Although the staff were busy closing down for the evening, still offered to fix us a quick bite. We had "bitter ballen" and deep fried cheese balls with a selection of sauces which was excellent. We went back the next evening and had a splendid meal of Scholl fish stuffed with smoked salmon, which was divine! Absolutely a must if you are in Monnickendam.
