    Great place!! I can call it "must-visit place" in Amsterdam! Everything is very fresh and tasty! Even a bread with special butter tastes sooo good!! Be prepared to wait for a table in the evening

    Ordered the combination with fruit de mer and mixed grilled.The snow crab legs and lobsters in the cold platter were so fresh and were the best I have ever had. This is the best among the 3 stores!

    Seafood platters!! Such a great selection of seafood including cockles, crab, lobster and mussel. The surprisingly delicious item is the crab salad. They accept walk ins.Also try the Scroppino dessert

    AMAZING! I’d suggest getting a bunch of finger foods. Calamari was the best I’ve ever had. Crab cakes , vongole & shrimp in garlic sauce. Homie had the salmon burger & it was big and juicy.

    I truly recommend the oysters. Get them during the oyster happy hours between 15-17. We enjoyed oysters and shared a Seafood plateau and it was more than enough. A place I’m definitely coming back to.

    The choice of fish and fruits de mer is very big and portions are even bigger. The place is very popular among both locals and tourists so waiting time may be up to an hour. Better book in advance

    Get the mixed grill. Large portion sizes - Very good value. The sauce is good. Bread & butter good too. Service is solid. Not sure why it’s a 9.7 though, I wasn’t mind blown or anything.

    Lobster Soup is a delicious; thick, tasty soup with chunky and soft lobster meat. Slurp! Fried Cod fillet also very crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Highly recommended!

    Excellent seafood. I had oysters from Ireland Tara No 4 and the chef special Dorada fish bake whole stuffed with herbs and a ramesco sauce. Reasonable prices for the quality.

    Great place, fantastic food, fresh, tasty, everything you can ask from seafood. The plateau is a mix of almost everything you might want to try. Must have oysters as well.

    Started with the French fish soup. Broth and most of the seafood was good, but shrimp was over cooked. It was mostly shrimp and mussels. The Mixed Grill was amazing. I had the serving for 1.

    The reminder that it's the best sea food restaurants is totally true, all dishes are amazingly tasty. But stuff is a little bit slow and not not kind at all:)

    I had to order 3 times my wine until it finally arrived. The waitress didn't take notes of our order. By the way the starter and the dessert was really good.

    For a quick seafood lunch or dinner it's always a good place to try. Perfectly cooked fish, great fruit des mer platters and the best fish and chips in town!

    The place must be quite popular as it was full, so you'd have to wait for around 10 mins, but that's fine as you can learn the menu meanwhile. All sorts of seafood one could wish 🐟

    Excellent fresh seafood. Try pulpo a gallega and lobster soup. Bordeus oyster are amazing!!!
  • Karstenheart icon on user image
    KarstenNovember 21, 2018
    Pulpo alla gallega was not as tender and not as tasty as it could have been. Grilled too long and lacking the typical smoky 'Pimenton della Vera'. Note to the chef: Try sous vide!

    Food is good, but service needs to improve! We had to ask twice for our side fries and salad, which only came after we were half way done with the food. They didn’t clean up the table until forever.
