This restaurant is located in one of the most beautiful historic buildings in Rotterdam at the waterfront of the river. The building also houses the ethnographic museum. But not just the atmosphere is great, the restaurant is a star-restaurant with excellent service and delicious dishes. We enjoyed a great 3-course dinner, it was a perfect evening.

Overall it was an enjoyable experience. The decor is very tasteful and the chairs extremely confortable. The service was friendly, but can be improved, particularly with respect to explaining the dishes in english. As for the food, most of the dishes were well balanced and cooked perfectly, but some flavour combinations were not of my liking (e.g. the desert with... More

As we came the staff was not very willing to have the extra guest. During the dinner we almost had to beg for drinks. We had the wine arangement, however a bottle on the table... More

The museum is not listed on the English version of the Rotterdam Tourism website Rotterdam.info. Luckily, we found it and the amazing Gold of the Gods exhibition by accident. The English version of the museum website also gives just very basic details of the restaurant, not that it has a Michelin star and that the chef, Wim Severein, is well... More

We have chosen this restaurant on the basis of the menu information we found on their website. We were attracted by the choice of ingredients and the modern twist in the combinations thereof. We certainly did not regret it. There is a nice atmosphere, and we were warmly welcomed. The restaurant has an open kitchen, but in no way does... More
