Visited here on a very busy Bank Holiday. Didn't book so had a short wait in the very pleasant bar area. Décor is very grand and the whole place was buzzing. Service was good and the staff happy and attentive. Food was good, but not as amazing as the setting. Portions are large for Chinese cuisine which is just as... More

After a visit to NEMO or the Shipping Museum a lunch at the Sea Palace is ideal. The interior decor is beautiful and there are great views out over Amsterdam. The dim sum menu is extensive - lots to choose from. For a party of four we ordered 9 dishes and that was about right. Our total bill was around... More

We wanted something a bit special to round off our few days in Amsterdam and so after some research decided upon the Sea Palace, as much for its look as anything else. And what a look - a floating Chinese pagoda which looks simply beautiful lit up at night. And inside it is amazingly ornate. The food was very nice... More

Tried to visit this restaurant on Saturday night but we're turned away as it was fully booked unless we wanted to wait for 2-3hrs when a table 'might' be available. So instead of racking up a big bar bill we opted to book for the following evening. To start with this Chinese doesn't have two of my favourite dishes -crispy... More

we returned to this restaurant having been last year and loved it! The food on the second visit last week was out of this world. Amazing. Unfortunately the service was very haphazard! If you got the right member of staff you were fine, but they took a while to find. But overall a good experience

The food is typical fare for a Chinese restaurant - seafood in a bird's nest but the price was high due to location it was 33Euro. We could have split the dim sum with everyone instead of getting an extra mesl. So be prepared to pay 4 star prices for 3 star food. The location and attentivness was very special.

We chose this restaurant for our last night in a amsterdam and were not disappointed we hadn't booked and when we arrived we were told that there would be an hours wait however we ended up being seated before our cocktails were even made! This place is huge however inside the decor and atmosphere are amazing, the restaurant is floating... More
