        "De Smederij"


Hidden in a picturesque surrounding area between old harbours, museums, the famous Paulus Potter house and 33 steps from the lake ‘IJsselmeer’, you would not expect a smithy where you can enjoy delicious French-Mediterranean food.

Steef Gronheid is the patron–cuisinier since 1977. Restaurant ‘De Smederij’ is a gastronomic meeting place for the inhabitants of Enkhuizen, guests from the region, sailors and business men.

The restaurant is blessed with a contemporary kitchen and thanks to its cosy atmosphere, created with 11 wooden tables, white linen table runners, 44 comfortable Parisian ‘retro-velvet’ seats, attractive photographs, frivolous filled preserving jars and fresh flowers, this restaurant is the best place to be.

Regularly changing menu lists with dishes, made of daily fresh products of the season. Our tin opener is missing for many years.. We have a friendly priced wine list with quite a range of half bottles as well. Restaurant ‘De Smederij’ did not choose for a king size menu list, because we do our utmost only to use fresh, ecological and biological ingredients from our suppliers in the region.

Reserverations are best made by telephone
