very nice location, good food but portions could be bigger

Ver nicely located near the Kralingen area in Rotterdam, this restaurant is regarded by locals as one of the best places to spend some time and have a nice meal. I agree that is certainly possible and the quality of food and drinks is good. However like many other restaurants, the cook at this... read more

Every detail of our evening at this charming eatery was perfect. The food was DELICIOUS, the service prompt and comfortable (no fussy trying-too-hard vibe) and most impressively, the staff was kind and genuine. For a relaxed, yet still upscale and quality meal look no further. This is my new favorite restaurant in Rotterdam. **also they are incredibly vegetarian-friendly, with dishes... More

The location and the authentic old building give In Den Rustwat a very special and charming atmosphere. Service is very good, efficient and attentive. The food is classic French-inspired with original elements. The Bib-gourmand menu is very good value. Good wine selection as well. Very good place for special occasions.

I was invited here for a group dinner (the restaurant has a larger room at the back) and it was a very good experience. The setting is idyllic, the food tasty and the service personal. Highly recommended for a special night out or a romantic dinner.

By now I have been several times to In den Rustwat, and have to give it to them; it is always really good. The setting is very nice, in fact the whole area is wonderful. The food is always good, what I would call classic modern. Service is wonderful, friendly without trying to be too chummy. The price-quality ratio is... More

We spotted this restaurant when we went to the botanical gardens a few months ago and I decided to take my parents there the last time they came. The restaurant looks like an old rustic house and has a very charming feel to it. Staff is incredibly professional, our waitress actually spoke French and explained to my parents all the... More

My husband's family are Dutch and we went for a family dinner (14 of us) for Oma's 90th Birthday. The service was excellent, friendly, efficient and accommodating. The building is hundreds of years old and very quaint inside and out. For a Friday evening it was surprisingly empty.. Our party and two other tables, which seemed surprising.. I am not... More
