    In a tastefully modern, semicircular building, with bay windows overlooking the Maas, this posh restaurant run by chef-owner Erik van Loo is one of the Netherlands' finest eateries—with service as effortlessly attentive as you would expect.

    Reputed by locals to be the city's best Cantonese restaurant, Asian Glories serves lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch in a tasteful modern interior or outdoors on its terrace. It's hard to choose what is most delicious: their fresh oysters, mussels in black bean sauce, and Peking duck consistently get raves from fussy eaters, but make sure you also leave room for an exotic dessert such as ice cream with rice and red bean sauce.

    Lofty ceilings, a cavernous warehouse interior, long reading tables stacked with international magazines and papers, and a mezzanine at the back looking out over the Rotte River—it's little wonder this place attracts an artsy crowd. It is perfect for a lazy afternoon treat of delicious homemade pastries, but you can come here for breakfast, lunch, high tea, dinner, or even a snack after midnight, and they also offer a small selection for vegetarians.

    Adjacent to the Stadsschouwburg (Municipal Theater), this popular spot—a favorite with local and international regulars alike—doesn't look too inviting from the outside, but the interior is modern, light, and airy; the staff are friendly; and there's a beautiful garden at the back, complete with birdsong. Better still, the kitchen produces excellent food using fresh seasonal produce.

    On an elegant riverfront terrace, the charming "Sea Salt" mirrors the freshness of its oceanic menu, with crisp linens and a spotless open kitchen where the bustle of the staff whets your appetite.

    The international kitchen of this former townhouse has created a loyal following, who flock here for excellent food, a view over the Westersingel, and an intimate setting (tables are very close together). The very friendly staff are more than helpful with recommendations, as are your next-table neighbors. For a special taste treat, try the truffle soup or the skate wing with garlic sauce. While there is a menu, daily seasonal specialties are always available and often the best choice. The house recommends you simply let the chef "surprise" you, and rest assured you won't be disappointed.
