About Smit-bokkum, Volendam
Palingpop is a very specific sound of pop music developed almost exclusively by Volendam artists. In this museum, above a rather excellent restaurant, is are roomfuls of memorabilia in tribute of the creators who popularized the genre at home and abroad. It explores 100 years of musical history through artefacts, instruments, awards, records, and photographs. The warmly lit exhibit has every wall covered with something or the other; musical paraphernalia hangs off the rafters.
Just in case you were wondering, the restaurant serves famous smoked eel. If you're eating here, they might give you a tour of the eel smokehouse. Outside the restaurant museum is a lovely dining terrace.. There is an outdoor exhibit of sculptures by Rob Cerneus on the beach beyond.
- Buy smoked eel from the restaurant.

The place to eat when visiting Volendam. This cosy restaurant used to be an eel smokehouse (still in use). For smoked eel, a dutch delicacy, you need to be here. You can really taste the quality! If you dine here, and you ask for it when you make a reservation, they could take you on a tour through the old smokehouse, in the pic. The food is delicious, service is great and it has a nice atmosphere.
Such a DELICIOUS restaurant!! Lovely atmosphere, cozy style. The staff is fantastic and the owner showed us the traditional eel smokery. The fish was superb, best warm food in town for a snowy day by the sea. Definitely a MUST!!
Excellent! A lot of specialities since almost 200 years. Smoked eel, smoked fish, great pasta, super deserts, great wines and language fluent & service driven staff! A++ Is there any downside to this place? Main dish costs between 16 and 22 euros.
Very good place for local seafood. This place is situated a little away from the main tourist area, but is worth the short walk. They smoke their own fish and paling here, and you can buy some as souvenirs.
The best fish and chips around ! Don't forget to try the smoked paling, they have been smoking it on site for 6 generations, it's incredible!
