Fodor's Review

In the heart of the Red Light District is a small alley that leads to this charming oasis, complete with the innocent chirping of birds. "Blue on the Quay" is set in a courtyard that once belonged to the Bethanienklooster monastery; it now offers a restful environment with multiple dining areas. Original wood floors and exposed-brick walls hint at the building's 1625 origins, but the extensive and inspired wine list and the open kitchen employing fresh local ingredients in its Mediterranean-influenced cuisine are contemporary and chic. Three- and four-course menus (€55 and €67.50, respectively) change weekly and might include anything from a frothy pea soup with chanterelle mushrooms and pancetta, or a melt-in-your-mouth, herb-crusted lamb fillet.
