"Loos Café" in Rotterdam, on the ground floor of the monumental Atlantic house, is a grand café where you can experience the city in its old glory...

Loos Grand Café, nestled on the ground floor of the monumental Atlantic House, offers a charming escape overlooking the serene Veerhaven. Stepping through the sturdy steel door, you're transported back to 19th-century French elegance, a stark contrast to Rotterdam's modern skyline.

Inside, the ambience is timeless. The personnel, clad in black and white, move gracefully between round tables adorned with Viennese wooden chairs. The attention to detail is well done, from the brightly lit cava behind the bar to the art-deco façade's vitraux glass panels.

During summer or winter with a ray of sunshine, the terrace becomes a haven for locals seeking a dose of vitamin D. The interior reveals two distinct areas—the lower section with dark wood tables for casual lunches or dinners and a reading table, and the back adorned with white tablecloths, creating an elegant ambience for lunch or dinner.

Loos Grand Café offers a wide range of dishes to satisfy different tastes, offering a menu rich in fish selections while ensuring there's an array for meat lovers and vegetarians alike. Whether enjoying a leisurely breakfast, aperitif, or a stylish dinner, this spot captures the essence of Rotterdam's old-world charm, providing a welcoming space for the young and the old.
