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

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.

I made the reservation online, for one person - I sometimes like to go out and enjoy a meal alone. The place is big and quite noisy but definitely airy; it doesn't become suffocating. The dishes are good and varied but the wine collection is rather limited. It's very central, easy to reach and it gets very lively during the... More

We ordered the seafood platter which has a variety of 12-15 different types,of seafood. All were interesting and very good. Although there were 4 of us, we ordered for 3 and there was plenty of food. Service was friendly from the wait staff to the kitchen chefs who came out to tell us what was on the platter. This was... More

On a few minutes walking distance from the Apollo Hotel you will find this restaurant, which name exactly tells you what they do. Serving Fish and more.... Their fishdishes are very good, but if you don't like fish, you can have meat and...these dishes are very good too. The only thing what I missed was that there was not a... More
