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.

I was with my 12 year old son at around 20.00 on a Sunday night on a bank holiday weekend away from the u.k. ( easter) and we entered unbooked and enquired about a table and meal. From then on staff customer service, surroundings. Quality of food and drink were without fault. Highly recommend and the seafood platter is memorable... More

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.

Just on the harbour, this locally famous cafe and restaurant offers various kinds of local dishes. We sat down outside terrace facing to the sea with excellent view and had our local beers. Very nice option to take a rest and enjoy the time in the quietness of this tiny village on the sea front part. Recommended.
