One of the few concepts in Amsterdam which exceed the expectations, definite overachievers! Very motivated staff, food comes at the proper speed, never too slow never too fast.

We dined here last week based on hotel's recommendation where we stayed. Restaurant resembles a seafood market. Fresh fish is on display from where it is ordered. Guests are then directed to the Bar to order drinks. A buzzer on the table indicates when food...More

The first time I was there. It is a cute concept with nice youngsters working. However it takes quite a longtime before one gets served. They have to explain their concept to every customer which is rather time consuming. The food: - softshell crab- quite...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.

Theatre of fish! The opening of a unique fish concept with great fish of exceptional quality in a theatrical experience. It's a warm, cosy and trendy atmosphere where guests participate in the concept of creating their own meal and picking it up only minutes later at the open kitchen. Guests are able to choose their type of fish at the marketplace where the catch of the day is displayed. The fish are offered at surprising prices that vary based on supply and demand. At the market guests can order tasty side dishes to go with their meal. At the bar you can fill your own bucket with ice cold beers or great wines in order to experience the perfect combination of flavours. One of a kind, a new experience, Pesca is taking fish back to the basics. This is the mission of Pesca. Great Fish. Guests Love. Pesca, Theatre of fish.
