We were very impressed by the atmosphere, the service and friendliness if the place. Buzzing but not loud. We had oysters, which I love. Then we thought we had ordered a mixed grilled fish platter but it was predominantly seafood with a little fish. It was very nice though. Would go back. We didn't have to wait for a table.... More

Great place to eat fish. Nice personnel and a good choice of wines. Great collection of fresh fish, shellfish, oysters, fried fish. Always busy but quick turnaround so no long waits.

The Seafood Bar is so popular that I had to wait 20 minutes at lunchtime to get a table. But place is worth of waiting. Food and service are wonderful. Today I was lucky to meet Simona, who is very warm and attentive person - thanks to her! Overall service in Bar is very professional.

We ordered a seafood platter (70 euros) to share. Crab, lobster and shrimp were great, but that only accounted for 50% of the plate. The remainder was filled with clams, welks etc - basically lots of very small crustaceans in shells that really aren't that tasty. Casual and hip ambience and a good but not memorable meal.

After visiting the Rijksmuseum we came here for a late lunch. Had the Deluxe Plateau "Seafood Bar" which had a very good variety of seafood. Atmosphere is very nice and casual. Will definitely come back to try other seafood on the menu!

I suggest you to try this dish: high quality at the right price. The services is very good. It is not possible to reserve a table, after 10:00pm the kitchen is closed, so go there non later than 8:30pm

I NEVER eat risqué fish food before a plane flight, but I was assured by my lovely Dutch wife that we should walk to this restaurant and have some really nice fish. For some, totally unexplained reason, she asked for a table, in English - we were given a 30 minute wait break, so she asked IN DUTCH if we... More
