We went for dinner at Cafe Stork as the reviews were great. However, the servers were rude and the food was less than stellar. You are much better off going to the Seafood Bar in Centrum. Trust me, you will thank me later.

A nice restaurant set by the wharf. Very large place and fully occupied, so, it must be very popular with the locals. Good seafood there. Had shrimp croquettes and baked Sole

Great place. Well worth the hike to walk to it. Service was spot on, food was first class. We had crab burgers (no potato- hurrah!) and tuna nicoise which was out of this world. Would be even better on a lazy sunny day, you could spend hours here.

Had a lovely salad at Stork, despite being more of a burger and meat than a fish kind of guy. I can only presume however, given the popularity of the place, that the fish biased menu is very highly regarded, whereas I thoroughly enjoyed my tomato and basil salad and bowl of fries. Good coffee too, great service and an... More

We celebrated our wedding at Stork almost 5 years ago and we loved it. The staff is super friendly and helpful and the food quality is outstanding! It's just the best. I would like to suggest to everybody who visits Amsterdam to take the free ferry to visit this hidden gem. I see you soon! Thanks Hanna!

This is a really nice place to go on a sunny day. You can sit outside in the sun or shade. The terrace it quite big. See the boats passing by and enjoy the fish and wine. People are friendly. It is very big inside and it looked nice.

The industrial ambiance of the place is enjoyable - and on a sunny day the outside tables must be nice - but the food was far from spectacular. Some of the snacks were good but the fruits de mer platter had only frozen and tasteless bites. Main course fish was so-so, again not bad but the mustard (I think it... More

Stork was alright. Nothing "wow" but OK. I booked the table in advance as we went Saturday night. The platter was impressive to look at it. Not very tasteful. Its probably because I am not a big fan of cold(str8 from the fridge) food. The staff was friendly and nice. We were lucky with a party next door, so we... More
