“Can't judge a restaurant by its cover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

We were totally taken by surprise by this unasuming restaurant near the RAI in Amsterdam. Truly the dinner was excellent and the service was very good. If you are in the mood for seafood do not hesitate at all to make a reservation.

“Off the main track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Almost deterred by the fact the restaurant is a way from the centre (near RAI station, but easily negotiated by frequent trams), we were very glad to have made the effort. The joint was jammed when we arrived, buzzing quietly with contented locals. A huge fruits de mer platter went by, looking tempting. We chose the three course set menu (which enabled us to try everything). Salmon tartare, squid, bass and cod were all fresh tasting and innovative. Fabulous crusty bread. Professional, friendly service. The leisurely pace suited us fine but don't go if you're in a hurry to catch a train. Cost around 160 euros for two with wine. Great place away from the tourist drag.

“Great food, tasty and nice to look at”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

We tried several fish courses: all perfectly made, tasty and so beautiful that they could be artworks.
We got a table right outside the kitchen so we could see the cooks working: fascinating! Good white wine too! Great service, they speak English. We didn't order dessert but with coffee we got some sweets, small but very good mini-desserts!

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was amazing! The service was fantastic and the food was the best I have had in a very long time. We went for the three course option which was more than enough. The chef even came out to explain what was on our plate. No need to go for the pudding though - if you have coffee, you get a lovely selection of sweet nibbles. Booking is required so don't miss out on this brilliant fish restaurant.

“Unbelievable food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Absolutely amazing food, each bite is melting in your mouth. I had the Lobster bisque which was deep in tastes and then the Lobster. What can I say? my mouth was singing out of joy. The plating and the way the feed is served is delightful. Can't wait to go back!
