Restaurant Wilhelmina-Dok, which was rammed by a cruise ship on April 3 this year, is to reopen on Friday August 5. From August 6 you can eat there again.
The restaurant is located at the North side of the IJ, the water at the back of the Central Station.
After the restaurant was rammed by a ship in April, a lot of damage repairs had to be carried out.
As it is located along the water where the Amsterdam Sail 2005 will take place, it is fortunate that it can reopen before the event starts. It has a nice terrace from where you can see the activities on the IJ.
You can get there by taking the (free) ferry behind the Central Station, to IJ plein-Meeuwenlaan (make sure you take the right ferry). Then you walk 300 meter to the right. The ferry goes 4 times per hour, and the last one back is just before midnight.
