A Rotterdam Heritage Restaurant

This is a great place in Rotterdam, not exactly in the center but, easy to get to by either public transport or by car/taxi about 5 min from the center. It is located in an old farmhouse which is redecorated and has a really great feel to it, great atmosphere. The food is old school Dutch ingredients but, prepared, served... More

A very pleasant exterior. Paid parking with plenty of place available (booo!) Highly tasteful interior. Attentive, well trained but slightly remote staff. Excellent set menus, with the "Bib" menu (for the Michelin Bibendum this restaurant has won) and the day's menu (3 or 4 courses) as toppers. The chef's specialty is fish, but his other dishes are most excellent also.... More

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 restaurant seems to think that `... 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
