Overlooking the Maas, this posh restaurant is run by chef-owner Erik van Loo. It is said to be popular among the harbor barons, who can oversee their dockside territory from the bay windows of this tastefully modern, semicircular building. Tables are covered with cream-color linens, and wood-frame chairs are elegantly upholstered. The service here is as effortlessly attentive as you would expect from one of Holland's top five restaurants. Luxuries such as truffles are
added to the freshest ingredients, with the day's menu dictated by the availability of the best produce at that morning's markets. Kudos and salaams are offered up by diners to many of the chef's specialties, including the ravioli of black Bresse chicken with pan-fried langoustines.
