You will have to travel an awful long way to find better battered cod than at the Urker Fish Shop. It's absolutely superb. Freshly cooked and beautifully seasoned. There aren't many seats in the shop, but they're more than happy to prepare as a take-out...More

Located in the Jordaan area of Amsterdam, Urker Viswinkel had the best beer battered fish I've ever had. We first tried the fried cod "kibbeling" during our Amsterdam Food Walking Tour. It was so good that we decided to go back for lunch another day...More

Found this place after a quick google search. Realised it was an actual fishmonger (that served food) and not a restaurant. Luckily, we managed to nab a seat outside in the sunshine. The kibberling was nice and crunchy but a tiny bit salty for my...More

Hey there, Amari B! First off, thanks for reviewing our restaurant! Funnily enough we've heard our kibbeling can be too salty at times, despite our attempts to salt all portions equally. Just incase you ever visit in the future; just ask for less salt or...More

How do they make them so good? If there is one place I would recommend in Amsterdam for lunch (or tea) it is this place. Great service and just unbelievably good food!

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.

One stop shop for the Dutch fish experience, right in the centre of Amsterdam. Famous for our herring and kibbeling (Dutch-style fish and chips), but also other classics like smoked eel, smoked mackerel, shrimp, calamari and mussels, the Urker Fish Shop delivers the full range of traditional Dutch snacks in a local setting that you've never tried before. Perfect for lunch or a quick bite. Located close to the Anne Frank House, save yourself the fish cart experience and treat yourself to a freshly-cut herring among some Amsterdam natives. Directions: Standing with your back to the Anne Frank House, across the canal you should spot Cafe de Twee Zwaantjes or the Cheese Museum. Take a left after the cheese museum, and then your first right to cross the canal again on a small bridge and walk past Cafe Sonneveld (restaurant with a red-and-white bannister). Store is on the right-hand corner.
