In the middle of no where in the docks area, this restaurant is an old industrial unit. Love the layout, set up and quirkiness but the food was average as was the service. We were a large group of 16 people and the service could have been much better.

It wasn't bad and is worth a visit, but could have been better.

Excellent restaurant on the north shore of the IJ in Amsterdam, once more a restaurant in the post modern industrial style with an excellent chef behind the oven. Good wines and not too expensive.

If the weather is good, it's a fantastic place to sit outside. You sit at the IJ, the main canal. The food, mainly fish, is OK, although it could be more special, just as the place is. The service is good.

Located in an old warehouse/factory in Amsterdam-Noord: so trendy and hip, with a great view over the Amsterdam harbor, opposite the Passengers Terminal for cruise ships, STORK could have been a success. But halas, the flaws in the cuisine and service noted during the opening era of this new restaurant, have not diminished, but gone WORSE. The food is not good, not well prepared and far over prized. So if you go for the view, do so, order a drink and keep the food on hold.

We had an amazing time at Stork (once we found it - which is my biggest but ONLY complaint). Its a little off the beaten track and when I called the restaurant, they weren't able to provide directions, even though as it turned out we were 400M away.

That said, the atmosphere of this former warehouse now restaurant was fantastic, a nice vibe, and very recent decor. We were seated quickly, drinks and bread came immediately, even for my wife who has a Gluten-allergy, nothing was too much trouble.

We had the seafood platter, pricey at 17ish euro per person, but well worth it. Soooo fresh and delicious! The whole baked dorada was to die for and the cheaper bottle of white wine at around 20 euro was emminently drinkable.

The bill for 4 was around 200 Euro so not the cheapest, but for Amsterdam, this was well worth it, service and seafood the best I've had for a long while. Worth the trip and mystery tour to find it!
