Good seafood can be hard to come by. Not in Amsterdam, though. The city’s close proximity to the sea shows you have come to the right place. Amsterdam offers a diverse selection of establishments, from casual eateries to upscale and elegant dining. If you are in the mood for fresh, sensational seafood, you are guaranteed to find whatever you are looking for – lobster, oysters, salmon, mussels and everything in between.
10Best has outlined the best seafood restaurants in town. In the broadest sense of the word, seafood is truly their specialty. Restaurants, such as Lucius and Visaandeschelde, serve a wide variety of fish, crustaceans and shellfish. Restaurant Red, on the other hand, makes it easy for their patrons: lobster or beef. Restaurant Nevy and Café Restaurant Stork, both situated on the IJ River, offer a wonderful atmosphere and beautiful view. For a more casual dining experience, try The Seafood Bar. You do not need a reservation; you can just walk in. If you are a night owl or are just looking for a bite to eat after a theater performance, head to Brasserie Bark for some late-night seafood. All of these restaurants offer nice wines, the perfect complement to your meal.
