Unigue molecular dining experience. Everyone shall try once in a lifetime. The service, surprising dishes and turning the ordinary into something magnificient is one-of-a-kind. The nitro cooking experience was fantastic. We ordered the 9-course lunch, which was a bit too much, but still every course was unique and tasty. Our lunch experience has taken almost 3 hourse so plan accordingly.

We ordered the 4-course surprise menu it it took well over 2 hours to get 4 quite small pieces of food. And this after we asked for the food to arrive faster. It's fair to say that we still felt a little hungry after this. The flavors are OK but not exceptional. The size of courses is pretty small. The... More

We had something to celebrate, so we decided to go for the 11 course tasting menu. I must say the service staff is much better (professional but not too stiff) than in the previous years. The food was excellent and the portions not to big. One of the table partner did not like one of the dishes (due to his... More

It is well worth its 2 stars. The dishes are surprising and offer a great variety in flavors . The only downside for us was the wine pairing. We had 5 sweet wines (which is a problem if you don't like sweet wine) otherwise this place is excellent. We would definitely go back, but choose the wine ourselves.

First of all, the smell from kitchen had been all around restaurant. My trufle pasta was too salty. And everything were not so tasty to pay that money

Went for diner as a gift to our best friend. Decided for the 7 course diner, which if you include the amuses and additional cheese board ended up as an 11 course diner. Service staff is young but cheeky, which was a welcome addition to the whole experience. Francois Geurds was in the kitchen himself. Nice location in Loydskwartier in... More

At a place this this it's a shame not to get the tasting menu. So that's what we did, 11 courses. Plus some free appies they bring everyone. The food was great, and the service was generally even better. They did this choreographed thing where they'd bring and take away the plates at the same time, lots of really nice... More

We had a wonderful meal here. the tasting menu was inventive and showed off his culinary genius! the service was fabulous and the atmosphere was great. we didn't feel rushed, although at times it felt a little slow. the flavours were fantastic and would certainly eat here again if i was ever in the area again.

We went to FG/Ivy with high expectations having had a five star meal there a few years ago not long after it opened. It is still an interesting place for an evening out with a very pleasant welcome, comfortable chairs and a quiet Rotterdamse view of the river and surrounding apartment blocks. We had booked via a dining scheme and... More

I went here to start of a weekend in Rotterdam with my wife. Let me start with the most important thing : the food is excellent and very nicely presented, the food wine pairing was perfect. Some minor drawbacks unfortunately too : i was not prepared for the relatively long waiting periods between the courses, the tables were positioned quite... More
