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'.

What can be fresher than seafood in Amsterdam and what can be more delicious than a Chef's menu at Bridges. This award winning restaurant presents delicious dishes that will tease and amuse your taste buds. The chef is an artist and the food is his creation. The restaurant is in the gorgeous Sofiten Grand Amsterdam and is worth every penny you spend at dinner.

Exceptional service. Excellent food. A bit pricey - specially the champagne glasses, but absolutely well worth it/

Excellent dishes, wonderful wines, great service. One of the best dinners we ever had. I would install a dress code to add some exclusiveness to the overall experience.

Great food in the hart of Amsterdam. Lobster with food grad is a daring combination, but works well. Very friendly staff. But you want a hamburger after you walk out the door because the portions are very small.

We made a reservation for the restaurant, but when we got there and saw the courtyard we decided to eat outside and order from the Bistro menu. It is located right on the edge of the Red Light District. The staff were exceptional. They knew all the ingredients in each dish, how it was cooked, how it was presented and how each dish tasted. We were treated and spoke to beautifully. When it cold a bit chilly later on, they give you warm blankets to ensure you are comfortable. All of our dishes were so nice. For starters we had the prawn and avo dish which was sprinkle with lime juice and chilli, loved it! and my friend tried the raw meat dish with caviar. That was beautiful. I Recommend you try it. I had the cod served on mash potato with shrimps in a lovely sauce surrounding it for the main. It was the nicest piece of fish I have for a ling time. The other 2 had the steak. It simply could not be faulted. The deserts failed to disappoint in anyway as well. The service, location and food made our night just perfect. I personally did not find it pricey, you get what you pay for and it was worth every cent! Thank you to the wait staff, at the of day they are the ones who make or break a restaurant. They all totally made ours with their professionalism. Lastly........Huge compliments to the Chef! Thank you for cooking us such a lovely meal. A must go in Amsterdam!
