hmmm… delicious fish at Opporto Rotterdam
A brand new restaurant has opened at Station Hofplein in Rotterdam: Opporto! Earlier this year I went to Rotterdam for Your Little Black Book for the city guide, everything was still under construction. I walked past it and I could already see that something cool was coming. And look at it now!
Just like neighbour Lokaal Espresso the interior of Opporto is really so nice. The hofbogen (arches) of the station are quite charming to me. At Opporto they play around with lighting a lot to create an even more magical atmosphere. The interior has a lot of earth tones, wood and furnished with fun design chairs. It’s a bit romantic but also very relaxing and cosy. Perfect for a date or just a nice dinner with friends :-).

What’s on the menu of Opporto in Rotterdam you ask? Well, mainly a lot of seafood. There are a couple of options on it for people that aren’t too into seafood. But this is really a restaurant for real seafood fanatics. The tuna steak is very good. You don’t see that very often on the menu! Other than that I think the seafood platters are always a good idea. You can order these warm or cold (fruits de mer, yum!).
Tip: Station Hofplein is nowadays packed with different cool shops and cafes. So walk around a bit to check it all out and then walk up the Luchtsingel. Then you can also walk to the cool concept store Groos at the other side!
