“Laid-back gastropub with a hip/alternative crowd overlooking the Easter Dock canals, great vibe on the large terraces when the sun is out, you can moor your canal boat in front. Good selection of craft beers. Order a portion of 'bitterballen', a typical Duth meat based snack to accompany your drinks. Live jazz on Sundays.”

“Just a few minutes away from Pllek, you will find Noorderlicht. This place is just as nice to enjoy a couple of drinks or a nice meal. Compared to Pllek, it's got more of a hippie vibe going on.”

Caribbean Restaurant

“If the weather is nice, then there is no better place to be then Waterkant. It gets sun almost all day as it opens up onto a wide canal. It's under a parking structure, but has tons and tons of outdoor seating along the water. On busy days, boats will dock along the edge and everyone will be enjoying the sun, good food and drinks.”
