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.

    Food was good but our service was pretty chaotic from start to finish which spoiled the experience. After being seated for 25mins we had to ask if we could order a drink. Bread, plates were forgotten to be brought and staff, although friendly, acted oblivious even when we pointed out issues to them- no apologies. We noticed that other tables did not seem to receive the same poor service as we did so it seemed like we were forgotten about for some reason. Disappointing as this was a birthday dinner.

    Overall food and ambience was very good. Service was a little a little amateurish. Staff appear to be a little naive and could possibly do with a little more training athough they were very endearing and very keen to ensure everything was satisfactory. Lighting system downstairs needs addressing as constant flickering of the spotlights was a little aggrevating. Overall all however Well presented and tasty food and a good discovery.

    We arrived on a bank holiday Monday and ordered the Combination for 2 people. I suppose that being the day after a busy week that the service may have dipped, again not something I would expect when paying £50 per head for food in London. The Fruits de Mer was very bland and tastless. There was no lemon offered to complement the cold sea food which I would usually expect there to be. The Mixed Grill was a lot more flavoursome and juicy. Would suggest to go for the hot platters rather than the cold in the future. I was very much looking forward to enjoying this meal having found it had such a high rating, sadly I will not be coming back here again.

    Excellent new(ish) seafood restaurant in the heart of the west end. Good choice of oysters, great shellfish and they know their stuff. Not cheap but not as expensive as eg Sheekeys/Bentleys. Just edges it over those great icons. Airy and fresh atmosphere. We'll be back.

    The food was delicious - the Chef came from the kitchen and she asked if was all good, which I think it was a very good touch. The wine list was made of good selection and good value. And mostly important , great atmosphere with great team / service. Highly recommend and we will return.

    Probably got a shift change as the service was patchy - pre-theatre meal. Food generally v. good couple of negative surprises including a very chilli dominated "green salad" with tomatoes, peppers et al. The moules were a big hit!

    The key requirement for a fish restaurant is that the fish must be very good quality. This restaurant does not achieve that. The raw ingredients were of a serviceable standard but that is not good enough.

    Never had such a bland seafood. The portion for hot mixed grill was okay but the portion/quality of the cold platter was very disappointing. Oyster they served for £1 happy hour is tiny!

    Decided to take my mother out for Mothers Day, spontaneous decision to pick The Seafood Bar. Oysters were on the house & a drink which was great.. I ordered two Seafood mixed grills which were tasteless, my salmon came well done & my mums was raw in the middle. Fish didn’t taste fresh at all and lacked in flavour tremendously - it was bland didn’t taste like fish. Service on the other hand was great, our waiter Suarez/Joshua was really warm and accommodating to our needs he noticed that we didn’t enjoy the meal and gave us 50% off the bill which was really sweet of him. Overall, I wouldn’t dine here again - maybe if the food improved but I’m not sure if I’m willing to take the chance when there are so many other seafood restaurants who provide fresh and tasty fish.

    The star rating is so far away from my experience I can only assume this restaurant is being fraudulently marked. London has so many great restaurants, this isn't one of them. So as not to be a complete troll, can I describe the tired langoustine? The overcooked halibut? The side orders that never appeared? The pleasant yet utterly clueless staff? The total lack of knowledge regarding the wine list? I could go on. This restaurant is clearly on its last legs. It needs to be put out of its misery

    Food was very good - the tomato and Pernod sauce on the mussels, the crab cakes and the overall quality of fish was high. It was restaurant food, but in a space that feels more like a cafe and it's not quite clear if you are being in cited to stay and linger or get along so they can feed the next set of mouths. Food and environment don't quite align for me. But if you go, have a crab cake. ;)
