“Best fish restaurant in Amsterdam”

What a treat, visiting this excellent restaurant. The menu is reasonably priced. We had a 4 course menu and every fish dish was delicious. Will come back in future.

“Bright & Lively With Fantastic Food - What More Could You Want”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

You won't be disappointed here -- the kitchen offers elegant and delicious treatments of fish and seafood of every kind from perch to oysters to bouillabaisse, plus an excellent wine list to match. The waitstaff is attentive and helpful. it's not in the main tourist area of Amsterdam but well worth a taxi or tram trip out here. The restaurant is a local favorite so be sure to book well in advance.

“The Place for Fish in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Probably one of the better seafood restaurants in Amsterdam I know. Not located directly in the center of Amsterdam but worth taking a cab to have dinner there. Very original cuisine with surprising flavor combinations - some kind of a mix between fusion and french cooking. Great and attentive service which in Europe is not easy to find. The wine list is excellent and although not cheap and has some great finds in there - try the Sancerre d' Antan from Henri Bourgeois which probably sets the standard for other sauvignon blanks.

“Marvellous seafood with pleasant service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

My son booked this restaurant based on the cuisine (seafood) and reputation (good reviews). As the occasion was a family dinner, we arrived early. The staff had reserved a table at the front of the room, but when they realized there were two children and a baby in the group, they nicely suggested a table further back. This was no problem to us. That the house had no baby-chair available despite such having been booked, was. Apparently our 1-year old was the first baby customer!

However, the baby mostly slept through the stay, leaving the adults and older children enjoying an excellent seafood dinner. Not much was left to be desired, maybe one or two dishes were not quite piping hot, but that was it. The service was smooth and prompt, the champagnes well chosen to accompany the meal.

Altogether a memorable experience, this restaurant deserves to be recommended!

“Superb, wonderful, outstanding seafood; you have to experience this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

After a late meeting, our local contacts arranged a late reservation at this restaurant. We had to wait half an hour, but were given something to drink and some small tastes. Excellent service. Coming from western Norway seafood restaurants are usually disappointing, but here we got one of the best fish meals we have ever had. Have to find a way to get back here................
