There are several lists of the best terraces in Rotterdam, and most of the terraces on the list they are really good, no doubt about that, but there are a few terraces really refreshing because of there location at the waterfront of a river or lake.
Hotel New York. / Hotel & Restaurant
Once a busy quay where the liners of Holland America Line used to set sail. Nowadays a trendy hotel and restaurant and a great terrace with a good view over the city and harbour
Location: Koninginnenhoofd 1, 3072 AD Rotterdam at the ‘Wilhelminapier’ , Rotterdam’s ‘Manhattan’, with a few large buildings, New Orleans, Montevideo, The Rotterdam
Terace: in front of the Hotel, direct at the river ‘Maas”, there is alway’s a cool breeze.a very large terrace and often very crowded, but when you ask a waiter for a table, most of the time he find something for you. Friendly serving. We used to order the “krabbepoten’ (crab legs) with some other sea food and a good bootle of wine.
At the green field in front of the terrace you could pick up a ‘beach chair’. You could easily order a drink or some snacks at the terrace bar and take it whit you to your favorite spot in the green field.
(Look out for the special Dogs ‘poop zone’)
Transport:by metro, bike, or the best way, take a water taxi, fast, funny and cool.
