Fodor's Expert Review Het Pomphuis

$$$$ Oude Stad and Het Eilandje Contemporary

The name translates to the Pump House, and in its heyday it drained the neighboring dry dock to allow for ship maintenance. It still looks the part; a vast interior boasts an impressive 23-foot pit with iron parapets and round Art Nouveau--style windows with their original metal rods. The bistro-style menu includes bubbling bouillabaisse, succulent sweetbreads as well as great slabs of tenderloin drizzled in béarnaise sauce. Make a trip to the washroom to view the heavy steel pump doors.
