Excellent restaurant in the Museum District in Amsterdam (where many restaurants are overpriced and of low quality). Nice service, amazing lobster, good wine. Ambiance is very pleasant, somewhat feels like a Parisian brasserie. Definitely one of the best options in the neighbourhood.

Brasserie Bark is a stylish restaurant with a modern decor. It is near to the Concertgebouw and you should consider this when reserving and arrive after the concert has begun at 7:30. It specializes in fish and seafood, and does this very well. The wine...More

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

There is a wide variety of dishes, other meats are available, and very tasty. Fish is only one option. You'll be fine.

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.
