Description: Bridges Inspired by Ron Blaauw Bridges seafood restaurant is located at the front of Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam, the location and the building are special. Bridges restaurant is all about fish! The best 'fins' possible, caught at the best moment. Always in season, never out of it. We offer a large selection of mainly Dutch seafood, whether it is in the restaurant, the Bar or the Cocktail Bar. Local, organic vegetables complement the seafood; a perfect match of the sea meeting the land, with a French twist. The Wine Room is stocked with 'great whites'; fish just needs good 'vins'.

This restaurant is woth it for the sommelier alone. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! The tasting menue is to die for. It was like having a tutored wine class at out table. If you do one thing whilst in Amsterdam, dine here. Make sure you give plenty of time, this is dining as it should be unhurried and totally enjoyable. We arrived at 7.30 and left around midnight! I say again. Brilliant!

We bought a deal that was advertised and went to Bridges just after Valentines. It's in a lovely location of Amsterdam and very central. The decor was lovely, the service was really good. There was always someone around but never crowding you. Their food was fabulous - albeit, I did not know many of the items on their menu (a lot of old, forgotten or rare vegetables) they were all very delicious and well executed.

A one starred Michelin establishment but quite informal. Service by skilled professionals. The food which focuses on fish was exceptional. Go for the six course taster menu or order a number of courses all of which are quite small. The restaurant is not based on a starter, main, dessert approach. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Yes, some courses were, in our opinion, better than others but overall the experience was great!

Thank Steven P
