“Don't bother. A restaurant it is not|!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

The place was closed for a few days. Then it opened (12-19) and I stopped by to ask if they serve lunch. we have arrived at 15;00. I was offered half a lobster(with mayo), there were some oysters sitting on the ice. What else? Chicken burger, tuna burger or crab burger. White wine/ they do not serve wine. A seafood shack? The previous reviewer was luckier than us. Don't bother to get there...The fellow that works there was , however, polite and pleasant.

“A simple seafood shack”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This place is by no mean fancy, it looks like the front entrant of a small super market, three high stools, and a white tiled counter. It serves a good variety of seafood, we found it by surprise while walking around in Amsterdam. Had lunch here twice in two days. The fish soup was very good, so as the crab burger and soft shell crab. Price was very reasonable, friendly staff making the order right there. This place is a bit out of the normal tourist area, but will be well worth the effort.
