Welcome at The Seafood Bar!

“Trendy decor with beautiful staff make you feel welcome and like as if you stepped off the cobbled streets of amsterdam and into a different age. Range, freshness and selection is truly unparalleled. I have never come across such freshness and quality other than eating it straight from the sea.

Definitely worth a visit.”

Michelin

“Fresh ingredients, capably prepared: simply a good meal.”

Amsterdam City Guide | booking.com

“This light, airy space serves up plates that you can’t help but photograph. What’s best, they know how to pair every fresh dish with a wine that's just right. Top tip, the seafood soup is the way to start.”

Lonely Planet

“Stunning tiling and white-painted timber make this a stylish spot to dine. Sustainable seafood includes line-caught fish, Volendam smoked eel, North Sea crab and Texel razor clams; platters arrive on beds of crushed ice.”

Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report

“The latest is located not far from Amsterdam’s flower market and is a great casual dining address for seafood lovers. The bright art nouveau dining room focuses on a splendid raw bar.”

Iamsterdam

“The Seafood Bar’s varied fare is invariably super fresh, featuring seasonal catches, and (most importantly) really, really tasty.”

GOOP

“It should come as no surprise that the must-orders here are the fruits de mer seafood plates, but the fried cod and simple grilled fish dishes are also excellent.”

Your little black book

“Furthermore, they only work with fresh products. No additives and almost all organic. So looking for a good fish restaurant to have dinner? Go to The Seafood Bar in Amsterdam!”

Amsterdam Foodie

“You can’t really go wrong with a huge platter of fruits de mer and a bottle of chilled Sancerre so long as the seafood is unfailingly fresh.”

Barts Boekje

“Het recept is hetzelfde: seafood, seafood, seafood. En dat dan op één van de beste manieren van Amsterdam. Daarbij komt dat The Seafood Bar te allen tijden ook een puike optie is voor de snellere hap, garnalenkroketje hier, oestertje daar en weer door.”
