Our hotel recommended this place when we asked for a fish restaurant and we were not disappointed. It was a Thursday evening and we hadn't booked but there were tables free. The menu was not in English but the waitress did her best to try and translate. The food was wonderful. We asked to share a crab starter and when... More

We started with the oyster (French and Dutch). So fresh and delicious! But we prefer the Dutch one as less salty and more cream and more mild after taste. Then we order mussel with fries and grilled lobster. Mussel is something u cannot missed, so fresh and juicy I guess this is the right season to have it! (It's on... More

Referred by our hotel, this was a very nice brasserie with excellent food. Our service began as excellent, but as things got crowded and busy, it suffered a bit. Would still recommend it. Very convenient location also.

Stumbled upon this restaurant while wandering near our hotel (Conscience Hotel Museum Square). We ordered everything from burgers to lobster bisque. All meals were excellent, although the bisque was not as 'creamy' as the menu led one to believe. Still very tasty though! And desserts were amazing!! Service was both efficient and pleasurable. A very good choice!

We happened upon Bark on our first evening in Amsterdam. Observations: 1. Excellent salmon and cod dinners 2. Pleasant seating outside and in. Provide you with a blanket if you sit outside and you get cool. 3. Great wait staff. Attentive but not intrusive into your dinner and conversation 4. Dinners run at least 20 euro each

In Amsterdam people have dinner pretty early, 7 to 8 pm. At Bark then serve until 12. Friendly welcome and as a typical Parisian brasserie it is mainly around seafood and especially lobster. The wine list is decent and you do not need to call your banker before ordering! Worth the visit, it is close to the Concertgebouw, for a... More

Description
Inspired by the characteristic brasseries in Brussels and Paris, Brasserie Bark is a lively seafood restaurant in Amsterdam's museum quarter. On the menu you'll find an assortment of fish and seafood dishes, from oysters to lobster, salmon to sole and even swordfish. The house speciality is the 'fruits de mer', an impressive selection of shellfish served over ice. The restaurant takes particular pride in only using fresh produce, which means that the menu changes 5-6 times a year, according to the season. Rather unusually for a restaurant in Amsterdam, Brasserie Bark stays open until midnight, so whether you are going for an informal dinner or business meeting, time need not be an issue.

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
