“Best Fish Restaurant Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We walked into Zeezout in the evening. We did not have a reservation, but the waiter was very accommodating. Our server was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Prior to ordering, we were given fresh bread with various sauces and vegetables for dipping. We then proceeded to order. We asked if we could get any of the fish without bones and the waiter said most definitely - it's good to keep the kitchen busy. As we were waiting for our order, we received a complimentary fish and chips appetizer. For our actual appetizer, we order king shrimps with salad. It was delicious. For our main dishes, we ordered the Tarbot filet with walnut, celery, orange, jus of veal, as well as the Baked Dutch Cod with Jerusalem artichoke, crisp of bacon, iberico, hazelnut. Everything was made to perfection - all the ingredients complimented one another. For dessert, we ordered the caramelized banana with spices and vanilla ice cream, as well as the snicker dessert. What a great way to end our meal. Excellent service, excellent food - we will definitely return and recommend Zeezout to everyone.

“Top notch fish restaurant in Holland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

As a local,I come here on a regular basis with friends and business relations. Service is always extremely friendly and helpful, going the extra mile if something is not on the menu. Great variety on the menu, and great skills from chef Patrick and his crew. Clients is usually a mixture of local business men from the area (bankers,lawyers, Vopak executives) and couples.
Wine list is well sorted and they always have some great Oz or Kiwi wines in stock.
Restaurant is not large, but has a living room feeling, cosy in a good way.
By far the best fish restaurant I've been to in Holland! Try the lobster tempura, which is not on the menu by the way.

“Hooked!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We've eaten here several times in the last five years and most recently this week - this is consistently one of the best upmarket fish restaurants in the Netherlands, itself the place to eat fish anywhere in the world if you exclude countries where they are busy eating the last few babies of their fish stocks (que lastima!). The chef at Zeezout is equally at home with most of the sea menu, though we are especially partial to the cod - however he chooses to fix it. Presentation generally is picture perfect and given its quiet location on a corner in the Scheepsvaaartquartier looking out on the Maas, a wait-staff that knows its stuff and a wine list that also features some good and interesting wines by the glass, great bread and amuses - why go anywhere else?

“Beautifully presented fresh fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Zeezout is an upmarket restaurant that specializes in beautifully presented fresh fish & sea food.
Located on the Maaskade in the heart of Rotterdam with plenty of easy parking around.
The white wines we had with our meal were excellent. Scallop and some salad with a refined dressing, delicious 'groene grutten' with our main fish dish. Hmmm...

Staff was very welcoming and well organized, friendly and with a lovely Rotterdam touch!
