This impressive listed building consists of three separate historical buildings: an orphanage from Westzaan dating from 1717, a merchant's house and a small warehouse. They have been tastefully combined to form De Hoop op d'Swarte Walvis.
This exclusively luxurious restaurant is magnificently situated on the river and surrounds a shady terrace overlooking boats, windmills and the fabulous old houses on the opposite bank. Weather permitting, sit back and relax with a drink, and watch the boats go by.
