Lovely food, nice view

This place - basically a couple of converted containers - serves wonderful Turkish mezze overlooking the Rijnhaven. Very nice view! Service was friendly, but a bit messy too. Ordered coffee and sweets for desert; sweets came 20 (!) minutes after the coffee. Tip: ask for a window seat.

The only thing good about this restaurant is location and their decor. Rest, it is super expensive, food is not worth the prize.Quantity of portion is very little and quality pathetic. We were two people and ordered same dish(falafals) as starters each along with some champions and bottle of wine. But, the waitress got both the portion in one small... More

Horrible staff, rude and unwilling. Markthal has better places to go. Didn't get our food, didn't get our drinks.

Obba has two locations in Rotterdam, one on the Hillelaan (at the Rijnhaven) and one in the Markthal. I ate at both restaurants and I really like Obba at the Rijnhaven. The food is very nice, spicy but not too spicy and at a interesting location. If you're on the south bank and want to have some good food, go... More

We had lunch here in the Markthal in Rotterdam on a Saturday. Really nice place with great food, quick service and very friendly people. Value was also very good with a big selection of mezze and grill meat on a big plate with bread, rice, fries and salad. Nice place to go for lunch. There is also a restaurant in... More

Obba is situated near water with a nice view. The atmosphere is relaxed and we were sitting on couches. We ordered a 4 course menu and we enjoyed the various dishes. Many different plates to share and enough for everyone.

I don't go to Rotterdam often, but whenever I go, Obba is on my list. Obba has chosen to be different and pulled it off. The menu is not Turkish, but a creative mixture of styles and tastes based on Turkish cuisine. This is not a place for travel memories and traditional dishes, but for sharing experiments and combinations. So... More

The restaurant is entitled mediterranean but it's basically Turkish. The staff is very friendly and the ambient is very cosy. Only the food can be a bit too spicy, depending what you order, of course, if you're not used to this kind of food.
