The Scheepvaartkwartier has so many hotspots that it’s practically impossible to list them all. Those definitely worth a mention include the two-starred restaurant Parkheuvel, the ever-popular La Pizza, and petit restaurant Louise.

The city’s top fish restaurant, Zeezout, can be found on Westerkade. Everything’s perfect in this beautiful corner building with its striking red gurnard tile tableau wall decoration. Patrick ‘t Hart and his wife Annette will stop at nothing to make sure you experience the true meaning of Rotterdam hospitality.

Patrick likes to work with zesty flavours, creating dishes with Asian influences in his galley-style kitchen. His tuna with made-in-Rotterdam soy sauce, sesame seeds, tobiko eggs, cucumber and furikake wasabi ice-cream is to die for. As is the lobster tempura, prepared on long, wooden skewers and served haphazardly on the plate (a bit like the Mikado game) with a variety of dipping sauces on the side.

Classics such as sea bass in salt crust with beurre blanc can be savoured alongside amusing surprises such as a mini-serving of crème brulée – hidden under the saucer of your coffee cup!
