Sea Palace information
It's a funny thing about floating Chinese restaurants: they look like tourist traps but so often serve superb food. The Sea Palace's three floors are busy with locals and visitors who aren't only here for the great views of the city from across the IJ. Try the incredible array of dim sum or the fiery hot pot. Reservations recommended.
