During the Shantyfestival (2013) one of the meals was catered by this restaurant. I cannot recommend the food. It had a burnt taste, the pasta was soggy, dessert had nice fresh fruit but a problem with the cream meant that some of us hardly got any.
We had to pay 25 euro per person for what was announced to be a 'festive meal', which in fact was one plate of messy food and a poor dessert. In a restaurant I would not have paid for this.
Favorite Dish: The restaurant menu looks nice but personally I would choose from any other of the many restaurants in Enkhuizen.
A very friendly and clean place. The bistro and cafetaria are next to each other but separate. I also saw an attractive patio for warmer days.
The owner is an Egyptian lawyer who ended up in the restaurant business and decided to make his own croquettes (kroketten). Kroketten are the quintessential Dutch snack.
Home made croquettes however, are very very rare. Especially in a cafetaria. You would expect that in a higher end restaurant.
Anyway, they seem to be hugely popular. For Dutch readers I've included a photo of the story in the paper about it.
Favorite Dish: I had a simple apple and bacon pancake for lunch. Together with a tea no more than five euro. Hamburgers and toasties all looked good and my fellow lunchers were happy too.
I am very fond of Indian food especially Tandoori and Royal Indian Restaurant, Ekhuizen was a real treat.. Excellent mouth watering good, quality was reaaly good.. It's a calm cosy, small restaurant ..I bet you would love it..
Favorite Dish: Tandoori and Indian food is special..
This restaurant has a exquisite cuisine.
As you can see the name is FRENCH, the ALSACE is a regio in France.
Here it means that the cuisine is half Dutch and half French, an excellent mix.
They have a 4 course dinner which changes every week!
When the weather is fine you can have dinner in the walled city-garden!
The place is situated in a monumental old building that dates back to 1570 !!!!
They serve FRENCH-DUTCH cuisine with an influence of produce of the season.
Favorite Dish: Doesn't this sound very inviting?
For Lunch: open Tuesdays through Fridays
from noon till ?????
For dinner: open Tuesdays through Sundays
from 6PM till ??????

This place used to be the shed where members of the yachting club put their sails and masts and other things during winter when we can't sail here till the start of the new season in April.......after winter.......
Soon it became clear that people loved coming there for ice cream and "frites" and they started restoring and enlarging the building and now it is a wonderful place for:
coffee with cake
or just a "jenevertje" at the bar or on the terrace, depending on the weather...
Favorite Dish: the meals are finest quality
there is room for 150 persons
plenty of place to park your car free of charge
terrace at the waterside
and often.....live music
the atmosphere is great and warm, pleasant, welcoming.
The Netherlands are Europe's most intensive melting pot in which the multicultural society doesn't reflect more intensive then in the restuarant business. Enkhuizen - like all other smaller towns - still do have a wide choice in (inter)national restaurants such as Chinese (often combined with Indonesian), Italian, Bourgondian (French, Belgian), Indian, Thai, Mexican and - in the picture - Balkan restaurants.
Favorite Dish: Enkhuizen is already for centuries a very important centre for fishing industry and hopefully will stay that somewhat longer, though many changes do not make it easy on the fishermen. The biggest change however they survived, when their sea became a lake and the water in the Souther Sea went from salt to fresh water (IJsselmeer). Now the fishermen still find their way to the North Sea to fish for hering and other salt water fish, while others specialised in the deliscious IJsselmeer-eel (paling). Hmmm, try it, it is really very tasty.
We had lunch here, its a kind of posh thing next to the harbour on my frontpage. But the view was great and service too. You can see the IJsselmeer and the dyke to Stavoren and also the Dromedaris ans the sailing boats coming in. Its good we had such views because it was raining heavily all the time.
They had a small but good lunch menu as well as a menu for big eaters as they called it. That is when you want warm lunch. Dutch lunch is a sandwich in most cases.
This time i had onion soup (with the little bread with melted cheese on top) and a ciabatta with brie. Both very good eating.
On june 6th 2003 we went to get some chinese/cantonese food from this restaurant and to my surprise the owner and staff offered every visitor/customer something to drink for free! The food is fantastic and not expensive at all.
When u spend more than above 50 euro u get a bottle of wine or 3 times Kroepoek for free as well:-)
I think this chinese restaurant can easily compete with other chinese restaurant in larger cities.
Several floors, very atmospheric, for a dinner à la Carte or for a special occasion such as a golden wedding day dinner......in one of the most SPLENDID 17th Century VOC buildings , situated in the very heart of beautiful ENKHUIZEN opposite the tower called DROMEDARIS (part of an old citygate through which you still can enter ENKHUIZEN.)
Their moderns, refined and creatively prepared dishes are wellknown throughou The Netherlands.
Favorite Dish: Ben and Jedje Eggink are the proud propr. and Chefs.
They are members of RELAIS DU CENTRE and EURO TOQUES........great!
This restaurant offers it guests, who arrive tired after a day of sailing and sunbathing, in the evening, a wide choice of fish-, meat- and vegetarian specialities.
And this all in a pleasant, informal atmosphere with an excellent service.
In short: there is nothing better than finishing a pleasant day here....
There is also a terrace where you can enjoy coffee and tea etc. during the day and.....do have lunch there.....so tasteful!
Favorite Dish: The famous DROMEDARIS towers like a beacon above ENKHUIZEN....
In the immediate vicinity of this remarkable building you can find our restaurant.

Gwyneth Beemster & Rick Jong have a very nice place for those among you who love Italian food....(I do !!)
The service is quick and they are friendly people, also willing to explain to you what certain words mean e.g..
Favorite Dish: My favourite dish is GNOCCHI (now I am not sure if I have to type the H....) but you pronounce NOKKY.
Although this dish of filled pasta squares in tomato sauce with all kind of lovely herbs etc. differs widely from place to place the best I ever had was in my own CAPITAL AMSTERDAM, at MARCO POLO, 100 - 200 meters from the Central Railway Station.....
The worst I had in HEIDELBERG once.....and....that was the most expensive to beat it all!!
This restaurant is situated in the very heart of Enkhuizen.
You can walk to the harbours, the mudeums, the sights to see and the Railway Station..all in a few minutes..
Here in this very nice place you can enjoy 3 courses dinners.
With the greates care possible the Chefs have prepared all kinds if delicatessen that the sea and the soil offer us.
You choose a starter, a maincourse and a dessert from our menu and......you always pay the same price, whatever you want to have.
Fir this 3 courses menu and the prices you can have a look at their page and I shall mention the URL in its specific place below....
Favorite Dish: This snug and cosy family restaurant is situated in an old warehouse and completely refurbished with many maritime objects and model ships, which brings the fine atmosphere and which is interesting./
Markerwaard can serve small but also large groups up till 160 persons.....(can't think of being Chef there.....)
There is also a terrace with some 80 seats which offers a wonderful view over the Old Harbour and the Dromedaris which you know by now is the big tower with the city-gate.
