Large informal

Clearly concentrates on fish (see title) good quality. A bit large and impersonal room. Set menu with limited choice is reasonable value. Service was OK

I don't know much about wines but the staff was both very helpful and considerate. The food was excellent, the help attentive and it was easy to get a table off hours.

The first night, we went and I ordered the special chef's menu, where you do not know in advance what you are getting. The result was the best meal we had in 2 weeks in the Netherlands! We went back the next night, and though the superb dining was not replicated, it was still very good. Heartily recommended.

When I want to spoil myself (and my family or friends) I make a reservation at 'Vis & Meer'!!! You should do the same if you love the taste of delicious seafood and wine. Then spread the word afterwards ...

This is a fairly large establishment and the style is a little rushed and impersonal for my taste. The food is average. I had cod which was well prepared but lacking in seasoning. The bouillabaisse was below average; not spicy and lacking in fish. It was mostly tasteless broth. Service was prompt, but very rudimentary and impersonal. When the bill... More

Vis & Meer is a nice decorated and spacious restaurant in the center of Utrecht. Our expectations were high after seeing the website and the menu (and prices). The starter scallops were really nice, but the main dishes and desserts were just ok. For these prices we expected more. Vis & Meer claimes to be a specialised fish restaurant but... More

We came with a group from TivoliVredenburg after a concert, so kitchen was closed. But never mind, the very friendly staff came with ideas for cold food: oysters, chees plate, even sweeties! The oysters were the best I ever had. Staff were kind, professional and creative! Some 400 mtrs from Central Railwaystation. Nice relaxing atmosphere. I'll be back for a... More

We were here with a group of friends and all our preferences were catered for: most of us chose fish or one of the beautifully presented 'fruits de mer', but you could also choose portobello, rib-eye or duck breast... They also offer great value 'surprise menus'... Service was friendly and accurate, they also have an extensive wine list (I would... More

Atmosphere in this restaurant is excellent. Food is equally good, that's if you like seafood. My main was very good and fresh. Staff were very professional and attentive. Would highly recommend.
