This is an exceptional restaurant featuring creatively prepared dishes mostly featuring fish. Standout choices included the "Club Sandwich" (no resemblance to the usual club sandwich), risotto with mushroom foam, egg and truffles, mullet with langoustine, and tuna tartar. They provided delicious gluten free modifications. Service was friendly and helpful. The room is large and well appointed with tables widely spaced.... More

Waiter and staff were great. Menu is modern European. My wife and I had mushroom risotto and it was wonderful. But primary menu is fish.

We first ate at Bridges last October on our Anniversary and found it exceptional. On this visit we sat outside on the most beautiful spring afternoon, surrounded by Magnolias. The setting was perfect. We opted for the six course tasting menu with the accompanying wines and the meal was truly stunning. From the first mouthful we knew we were in... More

For the last night of our trip before heading home to the US, we (a group of 5) wanted to have a nice dinner. We were drawn to Bridges because of its 1) Michelin star, 2) ability to reserve a table for 5 online, and 3) food presentation, per pictures on Yelp. The dinner started out great. The service was...

Came here for a birthday dinner, wasn't particularly happy with the service and the restaurant was too noisy with a mixture of background music and conversations from other tables - it was tricky to maintain a light conversation over the top of these. The food was good, but not good enough to warrant its price. Also, the interior set up... More

Description
Bridges Inspired by Ron Blaauw Bridges seafood restaurant is located at the front of Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam, the location and the building are special. Bridges restaurant is all about fish! The best 'fins' possible, caught at the best moment. Always in season, never out of it. We offer a large selection of mainly Dutch seafood, whether it is in the restaurant, the Bar or the Cocktail Bar. Local, organic vegetables complement the seafood; a perfect match of the sea meeting the land, with a French twist. The Wine Room is stocked with 'great whites'; fish just needs good 'vins'.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
