Having tried various restaurants in the city, I would say this is, without doubt, the best in a city filled with excellent eating places. Here, the service, quality of preparations, inventiveness, fine wine list guided by a passionate sommelier and the presentations were simply superb. Each dish at dinner was an elegant and flavorful treat, with gorgeous composition and finely-balanced... More

Don't miss. Wonderful place, excellent expositions and collection. Currently Gold of the Gods, which no one should miss. Great café.

The food was lovely, the wine was great and the service was excellent (and friendly, made you feel very comfortable). The restaurant itself is very nicely decorated, amble room between tables and a lovely location beside the river. Best meal we have had in Rotterdam, thoroughly enjoyed it.

This restaurant is housed in the Wereldmuseum in beautiful period rooms. The tables are well spaced apart giving a very upmarket ambience. The menu is provided in English and there is both an à la carte and set menu. We chose to have a main course only but were provided with several amuse bouche before it arrived. The wine list...

This museum defines what a boutique museum experience should be. Great art in a gorgeous building, views, a charming outdoor waterside café AND the most amazing restaurant that knocks your socks off. If only all museums "got it" the way the Wereld does. It's a jewel for the city of Rotterdam.

We have eaten at this restaurant a number of times over the past few years and have always been very happy with the service, quality of food, interest and diversity on the menu, choice of wines and general ambience. One complaint this time, albeit minor: we sat in a row of diners with very little room between the tables, which... More

We visited the restaurant on July 25, 2014. Ordered the 5-course menu. Food was good...maybe even great, but not outstanding. This is often the case with restaurants offering a set menu and fine dining...sometimes you hit things that appeal to you, sometimes not. The service was outstanding...really flawless. Among the best I have ever had. The wine list was wonderful:... More

I tried it for lunch and was disappointed. The staff is very nice, but the choice of food very limited. They do not really live up to what they pretend to be.

Very nice environment, right at the border of the river. Had a wereldburger, which was one of the best burgers I ever tasted!
