Atmosphere

There are three branches in Amsterdam, and one more branch in Utrecht. In Amsterdam, you can find The Seafood Bar near Spui market, one near Van Gogh Museum, and the other near Heineken Experience and Albert Cuyp market. When you visit for dinner, there are lots of people waiting to get in, so we highly recommend you to make a online reservation in advance. 

The restaurant is quite spacious and there are seats near the door, seafood counter, and much more inside. Most of the tables are reserved. The restaurant is modern and neat.

What to eat

When you are seated, they will give you the disposable apron so that you can freely use your hands to eat seafood without worring about foods spattered on your clothes. 

 

AMSTERDAM BUDGET RESTAURANT

Same as many other restaurants in Europe, they serve the bread as appetizers. The baguette itself is delicious, but when you dip it in the galic butter served together, it adds more taste.

AMSTERDAM THE SEAFOOD BAR REVIEW : MIXED GRILL

MIXED GRILL

This mixed grill is for 1 person, but you can also order the bigger portion for 2 people. This is one of the most famous and popular menus from The Seafood Bar. On one plate, from fish to lobsters, shrimps, squids, mussels marinated with tomato sauce are served altogether. Lobsters are extremely soft and melt in your mouth, and other seafoods are also fresh and don't have the fishy smell. Both the quantity and quality are amazing.

O'BON PARIS' TIP

The staffs are kind and the restaurant is tidy and you can have a nice meal with great quantity and quality. There is also The Seafood Shop, where you can simply buy some seafood and bring home or to hotels to enjoy them. At The Seafood Shop, they sell herrings, kibbelings, oysters, and seafood sandwiches. When you want to have a meal at the restaurant, remember to make an online reservation in advance.
