FG restaurant - Last night experienced fine dining in Rotterdam's Michelin 2-star restaurant- FG, formerly known as Ivy. The chef promises so many things - on many, he delivers, while on others, well.. Its a matter of perspective. Food that surprises and inspires - The courses keep to their element of surprise.. one does not know what to expect, and... More

We went to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday and it totally exceeded our expectations. We did expect incredible food and what we had was a feast for the senses. We had the 11 course tasting menu which had so many extra little surprises that it was more like 15! Each mouthful was an experience! What made it extraordinary was... More

We were invited to a birthday celebration for a dear friend. This is one of the innovated, full of surprises and most fantastic food. From the first course to the last, everything was amazing. The wine tasting was a festival.

I have long thought this restaurant has been undiscovered but news of its 2nd Michelin star a few weeks before our dinner there in December has ensured it is now on the radar. This is one of the best dining experienced I have had. The food is exceptional (had 11 course tasting menu), the theatre is great fun and the... More

Taking into account this is a 2 star Michelin restaurant, you can expect something special. I can confirm that for me they really earn their stars. The food is extraordinary special. It tastes superb, looks great and has combinations of tastes and structures you would not expect to work, but I assure you, what this chef presents, does work. The... More

The food is very tastefull and prepared with lots of care! Michelin star worth! The service staff is very arrogant and laks hospitality! Carrying for guests and asking if every thing is ok. Not worthy the price they charge.

This restaurant is certainly very special and is highly praised but I have to admit being very uncertain how many stars I should give. We were a rather big group and there were good and not so good reviews among us. Let me start with the good ones; it was a show in food creation, artistic, fascinating and excellently presented...

Wow! I'm struggling to find words to describe this restaurant...it really is the ultimate dining experience without the pretence and theatre of establishments like The Fat Duck. We had a surprise menu with accompanying wines with each course. In total I counted about a dozen courses including some delightful amuse bouches...and each course was delightful in its own way. Stand... More

I had the pleasure of dining in this restaurant a few month ago, when it was still 'Ivy's', and it was a remarkable experience. The restaurant was packed (saturday night), hot, loud and buzzing. Almost like walking in a night club. You are immediately grabbed by this atmosphere. the audience was young and hip, where other Michelin-star restaurants nearby tend... More
