We had dinner here this week with 50 colleagues from 20 countries and had the place for ourselves. Great service, good location and really good food. Especially the starter was amazing, the chef's special they told me. A cut of lukewarm salmon with a small scoop of ice. Sounds strange, but try it.

We ate here after a concert by the Rotterdam Philharmonic. It was not close by the theater, but it was an easy taxi ride away, located on the harbor. We chose the 3-course fish menu (there are also a 4-course and a 7-course choice) as a number of our party don't eat meat. The first course was a lovely little... More

This restaurant is on the water and quite a beautiful location. The food choices were good and the food certainly delicious. The wait staff was friendly. You can also sit out by the waterside . . . So what could go wrong? Well do you have a minute? I went there in the light of day and completed my meal... More

We ate here recently as part of a large party, which may account for the slow service. The good was outstanding...we had the four course 'surprise menu' and were asked ahead of time if we had any dietary restrictions or preferences. While I can honestly say that I am not a fan of surprises, especially when it comes to food,... More

Allure is a restaurant on the harbor docks of Rotterdam, old part of town that has been refurbished and old warehouses been restored. Very nice & unexpected place to be. We made a reservation using the website "Seatme". We ordered the 4 course surprise menu and told the waiter what we would not like to have like pork. The menu... More

The Allure is in every respect an exemplary restaurant. The service is friendly, the food excellent, and the décor contemporary but not stark. My wife and I had the 3 course surprise menu. You simply tell the server any foods you might want to avoid and then the chef does the rest. The surprises were all very pleasant ones. We... More

Few months ago we had a three course surprise menu as well as an intermediate selection of cheese. While food and service both turned out to be very good, it was actually the wine which was most remarkable. It was one of the rare cases, in which every wine (at least in our opinion) perfectly fitted the corresponding course. Thus,... More

The restaurant is not so easy to find, but is located in an old part of town with a lot new buildings. It is next to a harbour for private boats, in summer probably a great spot. Service is great: friendly and attentive. We had the surprise menu of 3 courses, without a dessert but with a in-between course (although... More

We wanted a meal to remember, something different..and we weren't disappointed. The service was excellent from the start. We had the four course surprise menu. What a treat.. All courses were excellent, but the salmon with curry ice cream was amazing with wonderful combinations of flavours I had never tasted before. We had a half glass of recommended wine with... More

I went to dinner here on 18/6. We sat outside, but since it is in a small harbor with parking nearby, there was constant noise and distraction from guys playing music in their cars in the parking lot and drinking/relieving themselves into the harbor. We arrived a little before 7 and were there for several hours. The food was nice... More
