4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

One of my favorite places to eat in Amsterdam. Great seafood. Very pricey but food is worth it. Service is slow and not very attentive.

“Worth a visit if you like seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Went for dinner midweek with a friend who was last here some 30 years ago! Had the Oysters (of course!!) and went for the flat Dutch varietal rather than the Bretons. They were excellent and very fresh. I followed up with baby soles again, very, very good. Service was very pleasant and the wine list whilst good, was perhaps a bit expensive for what was on offer. This place apparently, is a bit of an institution in Amsterdam and from what I experienced, was worth visiting. Not cheap but very enjoyable. Will go again.

“Fantastic fish discovery in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

A fabulous meal. Martin the attentive waiter was helpful and very welcoming! Our lobster bisque was perfect as we're the turbot and Dover soil. Ignore the neon exterior of the building as the cuisine is exquisite

“Don't ask for the Dover Sole”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

I asked for the lobster bisque soup and was ok but nothing special but the Dover sole was a disappointment. It was drizzled with butter that it was soggy and it came Sami-warm. But was friendly and bathroom very clean
