The Rijnmondveilig security region will examine whether the “trick” a Rotterdam star restaurant uses to stay open is permissible. The star restaurant Joelia in the Coolsingel continues to welcome people who can enter via the adjacent Hilton Hotel. You will then be registered as a hotel guest for an additional 10 euros.

“We tell people, don’t cross the line like Prime Minister Mark Rutte said. We will therefore take a look at this construction, ”a spokesman for the security region replied to a message in the AD.

Boss Mario Ridder doesn’t think he’s doing anything wrong. “This is within the rules. If you are a hotel guest, you can use the hotel’s facilities. The same goes for the restaurant, which has an entrance through the lobby. Inside, of course, we adhere to all measures such as keeping our distance, a maximum of thirty people and no more alcohol after eight o’clock in the evening, ”he told the newspaper.

Due to the tightening of the corona rules, the catering industry had to close its doors for four weeks on Wednesday evening at 10 p.m.
