Had a great dinner food was great as you would expect at a 2 star Michelin restaurant. What I particularly enjoyed was the relaxed yet very professional service. Was a great experience, something I would recommend

Its true...this amazing place was introduced to me by my old boss, a great foodie and a native Dutchman who knew his food and wines. I can still taste the cheeses from the cheese board, the food overall was amazing as was the wine, a real experience.

we visited Fred on a Saturday for diner. There's no 'à la carte', the 7 course set menu is explained at the table, but we went for the surprise. Tastefull appetizers (4, of which the eel is certainly to be remembered) were followed by starters and mains all cooked to perfection. The scallops with belotta and foie as well as... More

We had a great experience at Fred and would love to go back again. The only thing that was a bit surprising was the "informal" service considering it is a 2-star restaurant. I appreciate friendliness to some extent, but please take my silverware if it has been used and do not reach over my plate to pour water or wine.... More

no doubt, this is a top location. Great food, nice wines, service on a high level. However this is what one expects from an expensive place. Do you get value for money? It is worth the experience. Place is frequented by The beau chique of Rotterdam.

They lost our reservation, but after explaining that our company was already on their way and came from far away they managed to find a table for us. After arriving we were spoiled with great food and wine. The service was not too stiff like other 2-star restaurants and this made us feel relaxed, but still very well looked after.... More

Great service and great food. We tried the 7 course meal with wine package to 290 eur pr person. A memorable evening! Thanks to Sven and his colleagues for taking care of four Norwegians on a weekend trip to Rotterdam.
