A La Plancha is a pop-up restaurant: it pops up in summer when the sun shines. This outdoor fish restaurant on the riverbank started as a neighbourhood initiative on the old bridgehead of Willems Bridge. On sunny days, fishloving Rotterdammers flock to the outdoor grill for fresh fish with a view of the city’s skyline.

Mondial Fish

Nieuwe Binnenweg 1

This bright and colourful eatery is a good place for high quality, affordable snacks or a well filled fish soup. The herring is fresh and cleaned on the spot. The soles and sea bass steaks beckon in the display, waiting to be fried. Sit down for a meal, or get a take-out.

The concrete walls and simple furniture of this ‘fish hall’ make for a basic setting. The presentation may be no frills but the fish steaks, fruits de mer, lobsters,
oysters or fish soup are all of superb quality. Order a side of fries, pick a wine from their nice selection and you’re good to go. The menu also has some
vegetarian options.
