I was brought here by family who live in the area. The prices are great for the quality and the quantity of the food. We had free entrées brought to the table: an amazing fish soup (and I usually hate fish soup) and fish egg...paste which was really good. Unfortunately I live in another country but if I find myself in the area, I will definitely eat here again. Thank you again for everything. Multumim, totul a fost delicios 😃More

They have seating inside and outside, right next to the main channel) which is good for those long summer nights... The restaurant is divided, the more expensive side on the left, to the right, smaller portions and less expensive. I had their Zanderfillet and Bratkartoffeln,...which was generously portioned and of above-average equality. I would definitely recommend this as on of the top choices in Papenburg!More

I was there with a colleague and I had the fish plate with different fish fillets. The portion was of good size and the price reasonable. The fish was very fresh as well. Will definitely consider going back next time.

very nice and typical restaurant. I had salmon with vegetable. Simple dish but absolutely nice. Potatoes were fantastic. We had also boiled potatoes with butter.

Good seafood, nice sea-themed interior and a warm and friendly service makes this a place worth visiting.

Good but really expensive "day´s fish". Price not mentioned beforehand. Otherwise food was good and really big portions.

We went to Smutje when visiting family in Papenburg. Had quite a bit higher expectations based on the reviews here - the service was friendly but I thought the prices were quite high for "home style" meals (mainly different types of fried white fish). The...portions were large but for me quantity cannot substitute quality...More

Given Papenburg's location, in the middle of a farm / grazing country (but they do build BIG ships there) you wonder where the fish boats dock. They do serve a nice selection of regional fish dishes (and some for the landlubber) in cozy nautical setting....Potatoes play a big part, coming in several styles (boiled,pan fried, etc.) and often served family style.Accompanying vegetables are Eureopean style. Did not make it to the desserts. Service is efficient but not overbearing, more in the family style. Enjoy!More

A typical German fish restaurant. Overcooked veggies, very salt potatoes and fried fish. Not impressed at all by neither the staff nor the quality. Very uninspired outdated cooking and decor. I would not recommend this place.
