Fantastic service and excellent food, even for those who are not really seafood lovers. Excellent choices of sides and great choices of sauce to go with the fish. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. My 2yr daughter felt very welcome and she thanked them for her lovely dinner! Can select the size and how well you would like your fish to be cooked and they all spoke very good English! Would highly recommend it. Worth every penny would come back again soon.

Nowhere near the coastline, but with fresh catch and a selection of sustainable scrumptious fish & shellfish.

We booked a table, turned up and were greeted with a big smile. It was a Thursday night & not busy, so we were given plenty of attention. Went “alfresco”, as it was a warm evening.

Taken to the ice counter - we were told to select whatever we fancied and they’d grill it and add sauces: White Wine, Lobster and Lime Chilli.

We chose Mussels to share as a starter, followed by Monkfish, King Prawns, Octopus and a White Fish (can’t remember what it was - Sorry). All so tasty, fresh and served with cauliflower and pink grapefruit.

For dessert, we shared chocolate cake, with a soft Centre - accompanied with sorbet. Hot & cold, a lovely palette cleanser and so naughty to finish with.

Next time I’m in Berlin, I’ll be taking a bunch of us back to Seaside, Mohrenstraße and sharing even more of the daily catch...

Great, friendly and relaxed service, just a stone’s throw from the U-Bahn and Hilton Berlin...

Oh - you pay, based on the weight of the fish!!

After a long, hot day of sightseeing we decided to go for some seafood at the Seaside. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. As this was our first time at the restaurant we needed direction as to how to go about ordering. The menu has a list of side dishes; however, you will want to go inside to view the fresh fish that is being offered that day. It is there you will choose the fish you'd like cooked as well as the size portion. There are also a variety of sauces that you can order to go with your dish, but these are not necessary for your food to delight your pallet. We also enjoyed the mussel risotto as a very tasty addition, along with a small salad. Being American, while at home one of my go to drinks is ice tea. This item is not so easily found in many places across the globe. Hot tea can easily be found, yet ice tea not so much. The Seaside not only makes some of the best ice tea I've tasted, they also sell it by the glass or the carafe! We were quite tickled with this restaurant. I'd love to back again!

My wife and I, together with another couple, literally stumbled upon this restaurant last week (June 2018). We were staying in a nearby hotel and needed a place for dinner, so we simply started walking around to see what we could find. As luck would have it, it started to rain as we were passing by Seaside Fish & Seafood Bar so we ducked inside for cover -- and I am very glad that we did.

As the name implies, Seaside specializes in fish and shellfish. The atmosphere and decor are informal, bright, and cheery. After being seated, you are invited to visit their seafood counter where you pick what you would like to have for dinner. What you see is what you get and it is all fresh, having been delivered earlier in the day. The evening we were there, we found a wide variety of fish and shellfish from which to choose. You can also select a variety of side dishes to accompany your meal. Your selection is then grilled to order and served at your table. You can share a large order or place individual orders, as you prefer. We began with an appetizer order of avocado and shrimp tartare, which was wonderful. Our group then shared an order of sea bass, bream, shrimp, scallops, and flounder -- each of which was delicious and grilled to perfection. I almost forgot to mention that this is the sort of place that serves freshly baked artisanal bread and it was absolutely delicious, as well.

The staff is very attentive and it is clear that everyone is focused on preparing and serving a first class meal. The wine list is rather limited, but the offerings are excellent and quite reasonably priced. Our group of four shared a bottle of dry German Riesling recommended by our waitress and it was the perfect accompaniment to our meal.

Folks, this is a really good restaurant that serves a really first rate meal, notwithstanding its informality. As you might expect, it is not for the budget minded, but the price of a meal is reasonable for a major world capital and very modest in comparison to what one would expect to pay in New York or Chicago, for example. Bottom line: you get what you pay for and our meal was worth every Euro!

We throughly enjoyed our dinner at Seaside Fish & Seafood Bar and will definitely return on our next visit to Berlin.
