It is over 400 tonnes and spans over 90 square meters. In order to access the restaurant, diners have to walk across the pier and step down a long winding staircase to the restaurant
The wild array of fishes and sea creatures are attracted with an artificial reef built around the restaurant, which has led to many different fishes and sea life. The food is no pushover either, as it is created by chef Bjoern van den Oever who often has to compete by making his dishes as exciting as the view, which is always a challenge.
