On the north bank of the IJ-river, you will find not only superlative views over the water and the city centre, you will also find the best fish and seafood restaurant in Amsterdam. “Our whole served fish dishes are true masterpieces in their simplicity,” tells Hanne Blom, who owns restaurant Stork with her husband Erik Buunk. At restaurant Stork, you can enjoy a variety of gourmet seafood dishes, such as the classic ‘fruits de mer’ and whole served fish of the season, which are caught daily and displayed in the fish tanks. In the open kitchen, all dishes are freshly prepared and filleted when desired. “One of our favourites is the Stork Plateau, which comprises a selection of fish, crustaceans and shellfish,” elaborates Blom.
