Volendam waterfront can be very busy with crowds, so this place offers a very convenient Terrace and inside hall without dozen of people at the door. Service is quite good and food is also very good - especially eel, which is a local speciality.

Reviewed By Emma-Leigh S - Brisbane

Don’t bother wasting your time and energy here particularly if you are only in Volendam for a short period. The restaurant was only around 40% full yet the staff took far too long to order our food and didn’t acknowledge us. When we ordered the food, we then waited 40 minutes!!! Ridiculous considering the restaurant was not at all busy. We needed to leave and as soon as we stood up, they bought the food out. The food itself was less than average. Because of this we didn’t get time to explore Volendam. Wouldn’t recommend.

La Galera

Reviewed By 254Lesley - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

I really liked this place. Simple and pretty authentic. It's also extremely reasonably priced.
The menu is good, in fact some Americans at the next table asked the beef could be be left out of their tagliatell with beef tenderloin (?) the waitress merely asked if there was anything else they would prefer as a substitute for the meat! I was most impressed. All our dishes were terrific, the vegetarian calzone my mother-in-law ordered being particularly good.
Due to an unexpected heavy rain shower we had to move from the Terrace indoors. This was accomplished efficiently and with a minimum of fuss. Full marks for that too.
The restaurant is connected to a bruin cafe, Cafe de Gevangenpoort, also a nice place for an afternoon or evening drink.
We'll definitely return if we're in the area, apart from anything else I want to try the rest of the menu.

We ate at The Posthoorn and enjoyed its fabulous tasting menu. Every course brought oohs and aahs of appreciation as each new combination of taste, texture and flavour arrived. Service was solicitous but far from po-faced or overly serious.

We were so impressed with our evening at this wonderful place, that we went back again for our second night in Edam. Henk and his staff explained the "secret" menu to us, which we were delighted with. We had the meat option on the first night and i went for the fish the second night. The atmosphere/service was first class on both evenings, and the food was both immaginative and delicious. We left feeling full and satisfied. We will definately return on our next visit to this area. Thanks guys for two memorable evenings.John and Alex xx

Tomato soup, salad, and a drink for about 10'euros. Good tomato soup. Good variety of salads and sandwiches. Courses are prepared on the moment. Take-away is possible. Definitely a very good quality-cost ratio.
Mostly frequented by locals, tourists are quite a few.
Staff is mainly composed of youngsters who are kind and helpful with the Dutch-written menu.
Definitely advisable for a quick and tasty snack or meals.
