I’m not convinced that it isn’t rather too hot to be blogging right now… lying in the park sounds distinctly more appealing than sitting at my computer. So I’ll try and keep this short (for once).
Last weekend heralded the visit of Mr and Mrs Foodie (aka Mum & Dad). After dragging them round a foodie tour of Amsterdam, we went for dinner at Vis aan de Schelde. If you’ve ever been, you’ll understand why it this fish restaurant needs to maintain its great reputation. It’s just by the RAI, meaning it’s not going to get a lot of passing tourist trade. Nevertheless, it was packed. And rightly so.
The menu consisted of a special set menu (2-5 courses), a seasonal menu or a signature menu. You could mix and match between all three, and order two starters if you preferred. It meant that we ended up with a huge variety of dishes, all cooked perfectly and served with pride. In fact, the service was just as exceptional as the food. And here it all is – photographed for your food porn pleasure.
Possibly my favourite dish:
This one sounds like overload but was stunning and looked like something off the Great British Menu:
And finally dessert…
The verdict? You’re looking at around 80 squid each (that means euros), but it’s worth it for the service alone. Especially if your parents are paying.
