Description: Restaurant Stork is situated in an old industrial building at businesspark De Overkant. The former Stork factory at the Northern banks of the river IJ has kept a lot of original details and therefore the industrial feeling is still visible and perceptible. Cafe and restaurant do have more then 350 seats. In the summer there is a beautiful huge terrace on the Sunny side of the river. Escape from the busy city and enjoy the view over the always busy river and old city.
 Restaurant Stork is a fish and seafood restaurant but has got also vegetarian dishes and meat dishes for non fish eaters. Open daily from 11 PM. For drinks, lunch, dinner. Between October and April closed on Monday.

“Just a great evening at Stork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Amsterdam Noord is like Prenslauerberg in Berlin: fullof surprises.Stork is a fine place, special at agreat location.
The three of us had both fish ( a great dorade; would have loved to have two instead of one piece) and meat: both excellently prepared and equeally presented.
Service was very attentive and generous (never got somuch fine wine in my glass).
Will come back; if you're "into fish" here's the place to visit.You'll have a great evening.

“With more effort, this could be great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

This is an out of the centre, seafood restaurant in what looked like a former factory. The principle was good, fresh fish and seafood (on display) cooked to order but it seemed chaotic. We went on a Monday and there was a lot not available. Sometimes we were told but other times, a substitute was provided without asking. Service was very slow although staff were pleasant. The seafood was OK but not at all special. Disappointing.

“Nice food and service”

Loved it there. The atmosphere and setting of the place were remarkable.
The entree plate is not to be missed and the lobsters were great

“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

This is a huge place (a former factory building?) with a lovely view of the IJ. It is on the North bank of this waterway which runs behind the Central Station in Amsterdam and connects the Noordzee Channel with the Ijsselmeer. It is an up and coming area.
Appropriately the Stork menu emphasizes fish dishes. Our party of three had the Special oysters appetizer which was delicious. As main course one of my companions had the fish soup and I and the other diner had the Zeebaars (sea bass) which was prepared perfectly. With wine (four glasses) and one water "for Kenya", the bill came to 79 Euros.

“Good location and atmosphere, very poor service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Good location and building.
Great waterside and the food is good quality as well.
Unfortunately the waiter had either a huge hangover 20th of July or he is completely unsuitable for restaurant business or hospitality.
Too bad it can influence the complete experience.
Other service was good.
