A superb fish restaurant and a million miles away from the traditional trattoria of yesterday. Very stylish, elegant restaurant on the North bank of the Arno. The fish was delicious. I had sea food couscous followed by turbot. Sara had spicy prawns followed by salt crusted bass.

We had read the reviews and was in the mood for sea food so we decided to try this one out. The restaurant was very nice, friendly staff and quite decent serving time.

The food was good and probably what to expect for the price, but nothing to look back on to remember.

This place is rather expensive, but offers special lunch menu for 14€ / set. (We did not try it)
Usual menu - starters around 14€, main course around 26€. Very tasty and fresh. Men waiters are good, but not very friendly - seems like they keeping the distance, supporting the high status of the place

Bravo! In a city overflowing with of ordinary food for the masses, what a lovely surprise to stumble into this gem of an oasis.

The impeccable service, genuine attention, and warm ambiance and especially the deliciously high quality of the meal at welcomed prices quickly boosted this riverside restaurant into one of my favorites in Florence, if not THE favorite.

The elegant director himself was omnipresent, but discreet, since the machinery was already in place to function as flawlessly as the eye-pleasing modern decor might suggest.

Agree with others that it is a welcome break from classic Tuscan fare, but one is still very much reminded of being in wonderful Tuscany with several proposed dishes. Highly recommended example: a twist on the local "pappa al pomodoro", this time topped with large tasty shrimp, untainted with any extras, as the sheer freshness of the shrimp married so well with the traditional pappa.

An unforgettable and affordable lunch. Note to return soon. And let's hope Bistro del Mare helps set higher standards for other downtown restaurants. Bravo!
