Amazing dinner

There are two locations for the Seafood Bar in Amsterdam, this is for the one located on Baerlestraat. We were greeted and seated within 30 seconds of walking in and immediately our server Dave came up and took our drink order. He then filled us in on the specials. We started off with crab cakes... read more

First visit to this restaurant and would definitely return. Loads to choose from on the menu for starters and mains. Food was nicely cooked and well presented. I liked the relaxed, modern atmosphere with friendly staff. However, not many deserts on offer, only 3 to choose from, bit disappointing...

This is a great combination of casual but fun interior with absolutely fantastic food. Best King Crab I have ever had. Downside is the service is average (seems to be common in Amsterdam), so plan on a long time in the restaurant. The food is worth it though.

We had the opportunity of eating twice at the restaurant . Each experience was different and great. We had the cold seafood plate for two on our first visit: crab legs, tiny shrimps , large shrimp, eel, cold tuna, crab and one other salad were presented. Excellent bread was served with it. On our next visit, we had the hot... More

Amazing seafood and very relaxing atmosphere. Servers are only serving and not attempting to have a relationship. Go for the food and very quaint atmosphere. Really worth the effort.

Amazing experience with strange, unusual selection. Most of it was good and very nicely plated. The restaurant is modern.

As a Turkish "seafood-lover" I am thrilled by what the Mediterranean has to offer and have the tendency to look down upon Nordic produce, and recipes. LEAVE your past experiences at the crowded door of the Seafood Bar! Go for the combo platters of Lobster/crab/shrimp/mussels/razor shells and all the heavenly wonders of the sea-- or the Seafood Bar! I went... More

Been twice and both times the food was excellent, the service was efficient and friendly. For business it is too loud and the tables just a wee bit small with all the dishes and plates.

Just found this restaurant by accident on the way back to hotel - & what a great find. Menu had an excellent choice & the food was delicious. I would imagine you would have to book if you were dining in the evening as it looked very popular. Would thoroughly recommend.
