“Unique concept for delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Great location, tasteful freshly grilled fish together with some nice starters and not to forget a nice glass of wine! Can you imagine having your diner on the water in one of world's biggest ports, but having the feeling taht you are at a small fish restaurant on a beach in soutern Spain? This is exactly the place!
So enjoy the food, the drinks and the views and get fully relaxed!

“Quirky restaurant with simple, nice fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

The idea of an outdoor pop-up restaurant has an exciting ring to it and A La Plancha mostly lives up to that promise.

The decoration is very simple, which is understandable since the decoration has to comply to 'pop-up standards', and it gets better as soon as it gets darker and the lights are turned on. Still, a few placemats and candles wouldn't hurt during the long light days of the summer.

The fish is fresh, and prepared perfectly! But as with the decoration, it lacks charm. When ordering the fish, you will get a plate with just that and you will need to order side dishes. The bread is great, but a quartered (?!) lettuce crop with some sauce, anchovies, and onion does not a salad make.The restaurant seems to work with good ingredients and they serve enjoyable food, but they could spruce it up a little.

Be adviced that it can get quite windy, since it's located on the river, but luckily there are plenty of blankets available. Service is okay, the people are young, cheerful (although sometimes rather present), and they try to let you have a nice dining experience.

I would definitely recommend a visit to A La Plancha, because the food tastes good, the view is stunning, and the Noordereiland area is lovely.
