The De Visscher family have imported the model that’s worked for them in Amsterdam to this August 2021 opening in central Soho: their fifth venture and the first outside The Netherlands. And it's big, with 190 covers spread over two floors, and decorated with lots of white marble. On the menu – the clue is in the name – fruits de mer, oysters, fish cooked on la planca – and lots of booze too....
Harden's survey result
“No frills or pretension – just generous platters of great seafood” in a “variety of options (raw and roasted)” help make the De Visscher family’s new import from Amsterdam into “a great addition to Soho”. “Unless you have a serious appetite, the plates may serve two or even three with a bowl of fries, making the evening a steal.” And “it’s not a place to worry about table manners – just grab one of their complimentary bibs and your claw crackers and have at it!”
For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
