Restaurant on water: Vessel 11 is a perfect example of F&B concept.
Vessel 11 is a perfect example of a great Food & Beverage concept located in Rotterdam but able to transfer to any location. Cooking Europe provides a full concept development with the right implementation anywhere.
A successful hospitality concept is the result of a lot more than just a fantastic location or menu. It requires much more knowledge and operational skills in order to get to the guests feelings. Jan Visser, Bronte Flecker and their team achieve a vibe and humor that is selling for its own. They create a fresh mood with all the classic elements that guests can expect from a boat placed in a Rotterdams pier. Seems easy to create this in such a fantastic location but it is not really that easy. Here you feel the passion of the team but also the identity of the leaders, reflecting their personality and taste into the concept.
This authentic venue represents an antique ship with that pirate young look but with the timeless interior feeling. Not looking for any trend but just the perfect mix of colorful and sober interior. The ornaments, the plants, the pictures, the classic furniture… all represents the story that is going to begin and that you will not want to end because eating and drinking here is like being immersed in an amazing book.
The menu is casual and tasty with British influences, representing a fine pub experience through dishes such as Beef Wellington, Fish & Chips, Salads, Burgers and the superlative Roast Dinner on Sundays. Cooking this type of food on a boat in Rotterdam could be a crazy idea but this city is full of energy and full of people from all over. The port brings and attracts all these cultures and gives us the opportunity to taste the different cuisines. Rotterdam is a living city and Vessel 11 is exactly what the city wants.
The kitchen team cooks with passion using fresh ingredients. Some simple dishes blend together with others that need extra technique and then here is where it all becomes a party. The service is kind and easy giving to the guests that comfortable ambience that you like to see in this type of gastronomique concept.
Live music is central here and Vessel 11 provides an agenda of different styles every week. Jan and Bronte are passionate about music themselves and that is a small example of what an entrepreneur should achieve, creating a concept that is identified with the character of the team. These days, music is hard to see in hospitality branches due to city regulations but here, it is the main ingredient. The posters announcing the bands are calling the right public three times a week, giving the boat a feeling that rocks the audience.
Any type of event can be arranged in this iconic location, the different rooms of the boat have a different look and feel, splitting the ambience into parts and providing guests options for their celebrations.
Vessel 11 is a perfect example of a great Food & Beverage concept located in Rotterdam but able to transfer to any location.

All interested entrepreneurs or investors have the opportunity of having a fully tailored made idea ready to go.
