Aloha

Modern European in Rotterdam

With a glass dome that looks like a Victorian palm house, this former swimming pool has been transformed into a restaurant and bar with far reaching views across the Nieuwe Maas river. Tropical plants are dotted around the tables as chefs create seasonal dishes like pumpkin curry with raisins and fried chickpeas and homemade bitterballen (deep fried croquettes).

Aloha is hot on sustainability too. It has its own bee colony for honey and turns its food waste into compost.
