We had dinner - good food although the combo of sauerkraut and salmon left us thinking. The mussles were very nice. Waiting staff was friendly and seemed knowledgeable when we asked for a wine suggestion. Kitchen is open which, considering the small size of the place, is maybe not the best choice. Has the potential to be noisy/smoky. Can imagine... More

We had diner at Vislokaal Kaap. We were a little surprised when we came in. The place is a bit greasy and there are spiders in the toilet. Apparently their focus is on fish because it was very fresh. We had a mixed platter only the gamba's came from the deepfreeze, but everything else was very fresh and excellent

For a Saturday evening with family we booked a table at Kaap Vislokaal. First we sat outside, enjoying the appetizers and wine, while looking around at Deliplein. The staff was friendly and helpful, so when it got colder we could get a table inside right away. The food was good, although we had to wait quite some time for it.... More

The place has a unique flavor, with a decoration which cannot be described as chique, but I found it pleasant and unique. We ate inside as it was getting late and chilly, but the tables outside had a very nice look on the pedestrian Deliplein. Service was excellent and friendly. I ate sardines, which I found fresh and perfectly prepared.... More

We visited this restaurant late on a Saturday night. The area is really cool and there are lots of hanging lights and bistro sets outside. The menu had a lot of fresh seafood options, and there were a bunch of specials. We selected a white fish and tuna, and were very happy with both. In addition, we ordered the house... More

The restaurant is very simple but nice, like the open kitchen. We ordered the day special and it was delicious at a pretty honest price. Definitely a place to come back to for an easy dinner with friends and family

I finally made it to Kaap a couple of weeks ago and have been back again since! Simple and unpretentious bistro-type restaurant serving fresh seasonal produce at its best. I love the idea that most dishes are available in small and large portions to create your own menu in terms of starters and mains. The dishes are really tasty with... More

We had a beautiful fish soup, tasty scallops and a nice ray fillet. Eveything was very well made and tasty. I was not allowed to come in this neighbourhood as a kid, now I'd like to return to Kaap or one of the neighbouring restaurants.

Kookstudio & Vislokaal De Kaap is located between two harbour basins on the left bank of the river and quite far from the city centre. Nearby you have a choice of restaurants and cafés. De Kaap restaurant is serving seafood and fish dishes. The open kitchen appears far from spic & span. The toilets are hidden behind a stack of... More
