Went here for workrelated event. Food is very tasteful. In the summertime you can sit outside near the water. Would recommend this to anyone!

The location of the Proto restaurant is stunning. On a sunny day you can dine outside on the terrace with a view on the Rijn and the little bridge. Very lively with al the boats passing. The food is great, something for everyone.
