Seafood
The Seafood Bar is located in the heart of Soho, London. We are a modern seafood restaurant that offers a wide range of the freshest seafood. It's our dream to provide our guests incredible seafood, and we're living that dream.
The owner, Fons de Visscher was a respected fishmonger for 27 years in Helmond; a small city in the Netherlands, when he decided to start a new adventure. Driven by his passion for fish and great wines Fons created The Seafood Bar. The first restaurant opened its doors in 2012 in the Netherlands and now in 2021 we have opened our doors in London.
From our fresh day boat Fish, Lobster's, Crab's, Oyster's to our larger than life seafood platters, all our food is sourced sustainably. We have immense respect for our environment, and do everything we can to sustain it.

    I have been to their Amsterdam restaurant this one in London is way below the quality... Lobster soup has NO lobster meat inside at all, amsterdam restaurant had a lot, the bread came with soup had to pay, Amsterdam restaurant was free. Service side it wasn't as good comparing to the Amsterdam restaurant as well. I will go back to Amsterdam again but definitely not the London restaurant anymore.

    They had run out of most options by the time we arrived. They served us warm wines and the food that did come was average at best. Mussels tasteless, chips undercooked, linguine overcooked.

    I always want to try this place. For more than one year. I walk by on my way to work 5 days a week and dream about it. Yesterday, was the day to try, and I couldn't be more happy about everything. Fresh and delicious, also good portions for valued. Kaitlin Morgan was so friendly, sorry if I'm not mentioning her name properly, but she definitely made our experience more special, lovely smile and good energy, then we had a Spanish gentleman that even taught me how to eat the crab, and like it wasn't enough we had another gentleman, the French one 🙈 asking us about our experience and giving the perfect final touch. I left super impressed, full and happy. I do want to come back. Thank you for the lovely, professional experience.

    We had an amazing time, the service was excellent and friendly and we definitely will be back for more Oysters on a Sunday. The only problem was finding the place as the numbers on the road were confusing, so I will say it's nearly in the middle of Dean Street

    The selection of food was good - we went for tapas style dinner and ordered 4 starters and 2 sides for two of us: the portions were OK size, and the taste was excellent. Very nice relaxing atmosphere, and good service - special thanks to Adam who was our waiter that night. The price was a bit on a higher side but overall OK for a fish restaurant in central London. It’s not the first time we visited and we’ll come back again.

    It was a birthday celebration for my daugher beautiful surroundings - service was well intended but a little inexperienced. For a Saturday lunch they had run out of a l of a few things, i,e, Burrata, as a starter, Fresh watermelon for cocktails. However, a lovely time was had by all and my daughter said they were the best Oysters she had ever had!

    We went here for my husband’s birthday and I was very disappointed with the discrepancy in the service for different people. I informed the restaurant when making a reservation that it was my husband’s birthday, by the end of the our dinner service everybody but my husband received something I felt so apologetic and sad for my husband. There were people who didn’t make reservations they were given something special such as a couple who just got engaged received two glasses of free Prosecco, two other families who received a dessert with a candle on it because it was their birthdays. My husband nothing! Truly disappointed. Also, everyone else were asked to scan a QR code to write a review but with us. They didn’t ask us at all and I wonder why? Clearly we can hear you and what is happening around us. I didn’t want to make a scene because it was my husband so we paid for my meal and left.

    An ok seafood restaurant in the heart of soho. Menu detailed bowl of crevettes for starter....we were given a bowl of prawns (not crevettes)....no one seemed very worried when I pointed that out. Had to ask 3 times for bread and butter....bread and oil was bought over eventually. Calamari starter was ok but batter wasn't great and should have had more flavour. All in all an ok pre theatre dinner but Service and food was very patchy
