My best experience in a seafood restaurant for Amsterdam

I enjoyed the service, very smiling and kind. The seafood I had (plateau de fruits de mer, oysters) was very fresh and good. They really took care of absolutely any detail and accepted to modify the composition of the plateau de fruits de mer for me (for an extra, not a problem as every effort... read more

The best food we have ever eaten, We stumbled on this fish restaurant quite by accident. We both selected the set dinner menu four courses for €45. Each course was superb,amazing flavors beautifully presented. A truly memorable part of our short trip to Amsterdam.

My husband has been coming here for years to have oysters and fish. I had ravioli filled with ricotta and mint. It was served with sage butter and served over sautéed spinach. It was excellent. For dessert, I had a memorable chocolate torte served with peanut ice cream.

It's simply amazing seafood. I ordered prepared oysters - wonderful! Oysters with wine are perfect. So I very recommend it for guys who love seafood and oysters.

We stayed one night in Amsterdam last November on our way home and did not have a great Seafood experience during our stay yet. So when we stumbled upon this place on the famous Leidseplein square we just HAD to try it, and we were not disappointed. I started with raw oysters on the half-shell. They have a great selection...

So.... me and the better half headed out for something to eat and stumbled upon this little place. We were greeted by a nice enough waiter asking if we had a reservation, which we did not. He then checked the obviously empty restaurant and then seated us. We ordered the fruit de mer which was absolutely delicious. We are both... More

An excellent seafood restaurant, can't fault it. Quite pricey, though you get what you pay for! I first tried this restaurant 18 years ago when I was in Amsterdam with my parents. This time, I was with my hubby, and he loved it too. It's right on Leidseplein Square. Try it, it may be the best fish / seafood meal... More

If you are on a budget, don't come here. If you are looking for a classic Amsterdam Fish Restaurant, this is it. White and blue tiles on the wall. A large Aquarium. Kitchen at the back. Close proximity between tables. All tables within eyesight of the kitchen. A nicely laid out restaurant. On this evening, I meet up with a... More

first rate experience from the start, very attentive staff who took great trouble to ensure we had a memorable evening. We chose one of their menus but supplemented with deep fries oysters and scallops. The tuna carpaccio was delicious and the John Dory superb. We took their wine recommendations for each course which include a Dutch white which was remarkably... More
