“Great food, friendly staff”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Eating at Noordzee was a unique experience. First, we joined the crowd in front of the fish bar to place our orders. This took a while due to the long queues at lunch hour, but we managed to distract ourselves with the divine smell of freshly grilled seafood. The staff here were very helpful in explaining the menu items and recommending which dishes to order. Most of them were fluent in English and conversing with them was a breeze.

It took a short while for the food to be prepared, upon which the staff member shouted my name across the street to alert me. After collecting our food and wine, we retreated to the central table area where we enjoyed our lunch in the warm sun. All of the dishes that we ordered were decent, with the tuna steak, fresh oysters and fried calamari being particularly outstanding. We helped ourselves to another round of the delicious oysters, washed everything down with a glass of house white, and were ready to go. Overall, a very pleasant (but slightly pricey) lunch experience.

“Great Streetfood”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

This place is great. Wonderful, simple menu of fresh fish, prawns and fish soup at reasonable prices.

Good place to watch the world pass by whilst enjoying a snack and a beer.

“Super Oysters!”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

Really enjoyed my oysters, tuna and glass of wine on the terrace! This place is full of life . And the sea food is amazing. It's not a real restaurant though so be aware of this before you go so that you don't get disappointed.

“THIS IS A MUST MUST MUST”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Our tour guide recommended we visit this local spot to eat seafood and boy was he spot on. The staff was dancing around and happy and they also helped us decide what to order. They treated us like we were regulars and our food was ready very fast. By the time we finished eating our amazing meal of shrimp scampi and shrimp croquettes the place was PACKED. We seriously considered coming back right before we left but there were so many people we didn't have time. The view of the church is great and the prices were reasonable too. I loved this place and I will be back!!
