Courzand

Another golden oldie, this one a little further from the city centre. Tip: get there by water taxi or the Waterbus, getting off at the Heijplaat stop. Between the Eem and Waalhaven container terminals lies a residential area originally built for Rotterdamse Droogdok Maatschappij (RDM) employees. Nowadays there’s a school campus there and the old industrial buildings, including one that was once used as a launching site for submarines, are now used as events venues. The nearby Courzand café was originally set up as a “relaxation area” where dock workers could go for a cup of coffee or a glass of jenever after a hard day’s work. The former harbour café has since been transformed into a grand café and restaurant with art deco features, black-and-white photos of ships that were once the pride of the RDM shipyard and a few heavy-duty authentic portholes. The menu consists of classics such as “havenuitsmijter” (ham and eggs), horse steak, meatballs and more contemporary dishes such as poké bowl and flammkuchen.
