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

I have not been to Fred yet, even though i do expect a lot from them. But its going to be hard to beat this restaurant. The thing is that the price is sooooo good for what you get, I came with my dad and we really could not believe what we paid. If fred is going to beat this... 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

We were lucky to get some coupons to pay half-price at In den Rustwat, a very charming restaurant looking like a cottage in modern Rotterdam. Service is perfect and warm, waiters are not trying to impress you but are clearly here to help you. Food is good, but I still wonder why they call it French. It felt more like... More

Entourage and decoration where great. Professional and friendly waiters. Good food and wine combinations!! We where with four and had an wonderful evening. One point of critic. Because it is a small room it can be noisy.

The sommelier really helped out; I was pregnant and he gave me just a sip of wine with every course. Food and wine where great.

The place is fantastic, a kind of cottage in the park close to Stadion Woudenstein, in the Eastern side of the city, with a nice furniture in style. Though, when entering you're just close to the toilets, and I can say that the smell is not so inviting... Just to make things clear: it doesn't smell like dirt, but anyway... More
