Pricy but overall the food and service were very good. French fries were way too fatty and unlikely to be home made.

Lovely place with a good French atmosphere, and great quality seafood. We had Lobster and Risotto , both excellent choices! The place can be a little loud, depending of the conversations of other tables. We had a great time!

A typical pre-concert better "fast-food" where one is most of the time in a hurry in order to reach the concert building on time. We were not impressed by this "old" style kitchen with overcooked vegetables and a very tuff steak. Unfortunately nothing has changed...More

We went there to celebrate my birthday and the crew was very attentive. The seafood is out of this world: we enjoyed the paëlla seafood plate. Also desert was delicious. It's not cheap, but worth it.

There is a wide variety of dishes, other meats are available, and very tasty. Fish is only one option. You'll be fine.

Inspired by the characteristic brasseries in Brussels and Paris, Brasserie Bark is a lively seafood restaurant in Amsterdam's museum quarter. On the menu you'll find an assortment of fish and seafood dishes, from oysters to lobster, salmon to sole and even swordfish. The house speciality is the 'fruits de mer', an impressive selection of shellfish served over ice. The restaurant takes particular pride in only using fresh produce, which means that the menu changes 5-6 times a year, according to the season. Rather unusually for a restaurant in Amsterdam, Brasserie Bark stays open until midnight, so whether you are going for an informal dinner or business meeting, time need not be an issue.
