Familieportret

Fons de Visscher was a respected fishmonger for 27 years in Helmond; a small city in The Netherlands, when he sold his fish-shop and decided to start a new adventure. He moved to Amsterdam with his wife, and he was driven by his passion for fish and great wines. Fons created The Seafood Bar which he opened in 2012 in the Van Baerlestraat. This started as a combination between an epicurean fish traiteur and a restaurant. After a few months the restaurant became so popular, they decided to completely change it into a fish-restaurant. A fish-restaurant that has set a new standard in terms of freshness, taste, service and design. Meanwhile there are three restaurants in Amsterdam (Van Baerlestraat, Spui and Ferdinand Bolstraat) and one in Utrecht (Stationsplein). Besides that, the love for selling fresh fish never left. Therefore, in 2017 Fons opened his own fish-shop in the city centre of Amsterdam.

What's our secret?

The concept is very simple: incredibly fresh products, no overdone prices. In short, good food and drinks. But the real success lies in the dedication of the De Visscher family - 100% heart for the business, 24 hours a day. With attention for the guests and an eye for every detail. That spirit also reflects itself in the now more than 250 motivated and committed employees.

Sustainability is very important to the family. Together with the suppliers they try to select MSC- and MSA- certified fish whenever possible. There is also strict supervision in the kitchens, to make sure that the whole fish is used, so there is no waste.

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.”
