Description: Inspired by the characteristic brasseries in Brussels and Paris, Brasserie Bark is a lively seafood restaurant in Amsterdam's museum quarter. On the menu you'll find an assortment of fish and seafood dishes, from oysters to lobster, salmon to sole and even swordfish. The house speciality is the 'fruits de mer', an impressive selection of shellfish served over ice. The restaurant takes particular pride in only using fresh produce, which means that the menu changes 5-6 times a year, according to the season. Rather unusually for a restaurant in Amsterdam, Brasserie Bark stays open until midnight, so whether you are going for an informal dinner or business meeting, time need not be an issue.

“Fruit de mer (soup) is very nice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

We ordered Fruit de mer and redfish filet with tomato-basil source. Both were very tasty. Especially, Soup of Fruit de mer (soup) was very delicious, not so salty.

“Nice Fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Five different preparations of salmon and a Gorgonzola salad to start - Cat Fish and a fillet of plaice for main. Three glasses of Sauvignon Blanc and a bottle of water - EUR 75.

Very nice although the service was a little slow. Nice outside dining if the weather was a bit warmer. Highly recommended.

“Great Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

A small restaurant with a very nice selection of seafood. Lobster (Maine) is a specialty and available hot or cold. Dover sole is excellent (and expensive)

“Very good service, food and delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

The dinner we had here was very good quality and the service very attentive. We were very happy with the wine list as well. Everything was delicious, the service was attentive (not common in Amsterdam) and friendly. I would definitely recommend and will return as I live in Amsterdam.

“Delightful Dining Near the Museums”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

For us, a real test of a restaurant is what they do for our vegan daughter. Brasserie Bark - primarily a seafood restaurant - made her a lovely dinner of perfectly cooked as well as raw vegetables beautifully presented. My husband and I had salmon in a butter sauce and gorgeous white asparagus. Service was excellent, and the decor very pleasant. If you are staying in the Museum Quarter we highly recommend a meal here.
