“Love this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

I love the Seafood Bar - good service, delicious food, great location. The sharing platters in particular are very tasty and so reasonably proceed. I highly recommend! Only downside is that they only take a few reservations every night, so you have to walk in and hope! :)

“Ditto. Ditto. Ditto amen. A great restaurant experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Ditto to all the raves about The Seafood Bar.

We just finished our second meal at this cool, hip, fun and fantastic Amsterdam eatery. We're now jiggling our schedule to fit in a 3rd visit before we return home to NYC.

Absolutely top-notch are the restaurant's food, vibe, service and prices. The seafood is ocean-fresh; the oysters are worth a trip. Our advice: If you like seafood, do everything you can to squeeze into your schedule a lunch or dinner at The Seafood Bar. For dinner, reservations are suggested.

“a great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

walking about in the rain after visiting museums, we stumbled upon the Seafood Bar-too bad it was so crowded that we couldn't get it! The next time we went to the Museumplein, we made a point of getting there at 11:30 am-oops, not open until 12 for lunch! They took pity on us and let us sit at the bar for a beer and wine. Finally got to order our long awaited lunch-GREAT! Lobster soup was full of lobster pieces and very brothy-not full of cream and brandy like others. Fish and chips were good, along with the squid a la plancha. So happy we finally got in here!

“Sensational Seafood in superlative surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Excellent, cool and casual restaurant with panache and the right attitude. We dined here two nights in a row and the standard was absolutley superb, so much so we asked the owner to open a branch in our home town of Poole (UK). They may yet oblige with any luck.

The interior was fresh, energetic and convivial. The staff courteous, attentive, but not overly so as to be irritating. The food was on the money each time, and the wine perfectly chilled. Can't fault it one bit. Thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam.
