John dory is the first ‘fishtronomie’ restaurant of amsterdam
During my most recent stroll along the canals, I suddenly bumped into John Dory vistronomie on the Prinsengracht. With this seafood restaurant, Amsterdam welcomed a new, special concept in town. All is focussed on ‘fishtronomie’ here. I hadn’t heard of it before, but in other words: a lot of dishes with fish! .
And not just any fish, because at John Dory they only serve fish that is caught in Dutch waters. So no salmon of tuna from far, far away, but mackerel and lobster from close to home. The result? Delicious sophisticated dishes made of farm-fresh fish, yum! Chef Arjan Wennekes, who was previously chef at Visaandeschelde, is happy to prepare the best dishes for you.
You’ll find the restaurant in an old warehouse from 1680 at the Prinsengracht. The restaurant has two floors and every floor has a different purpose. Downstairs you can enjoy a good glas of wine and a tasty fish snack. Here the emphasis is on lounging. And upstairs you’ll find the fish restaurant. Here you can sit and dine with your lover, friends and family. You can enjoy a 3, 4, 5 or even 6 course dinner. And trust me if I say you’ll want every course ;-)
