Casual Tuesday with a mate. They have their own brew which is a rich slightly malty beer, much better than the industrial Heineken that most pubs here serve. We had all you can eat Ribs and Fries for €10. Good ribs, nice rich marinade well cooked. Went back for seconds. They told me the record was 8 rounds! Atmosphere was... More

Cannot really judge the food, only ever had a tomato soup there, and it looked and tasted like it came from a can. Nevertheless, the atmosphere and decor are impressive. Just go there to drink and not to eat!

This place is located on the way to the center in Oude Binnenweg. It has a terrace outside which is great to observe the people passing while enjoying a good beer. But I visit Sijf predominantly for lunch, especially during Autumn and Winter. I just love the internal of the restaurant. It is very old with a cozy feel, all... More

This is the kind of place you just walk into by coincident, ending up having a great lunch. I had excellently butter fried Dover sole served with vegetables and French fries (always these fries) and a chilled glass of white wine. Service was a bit slow but very friendly. I recommend this place for a stop while doing the city... More

Atmosphere is great and the staff is lovely. If you is a fan of belgium beers they've got a nice selection (both taps and bottles). La Chouffe on tap is always a good call and Westmalle Dubbel always work well as a nightcap. The Guinea Fowl with maple syrup is was well prepared and is a fair portion. Total spend... More

Sijf is one of my favourite Rotterdam hangouts. It has a nice terrace and the inside is cosy too. The spareribes are the best in Rotterdam- check their all you can eat spareribs day! Lots of different beers to choose from. Good atmosphere, good price!

If you are in Rotterdam you HAVE to lunch here. This is my favourite eatery in Rotterdam because it is so unpretentious. The interior is authentic & aged but it feels cozy & welcome. Had a few meals here as well as just stopped in for a coffee, cake or drink. Staff are honest & must be commended. My uncle... More

Had a really nice evening here and returned for lunch the following day. Feels very typically dutch with a really nice ambience. Service and beers excellent and the food was to a very high standard. No complaints at all, and we will return next time in Rotterdam.

The service is good, and the whole place offer you a warm and cozy feeling, you start to feel relax once you open the door. People are always smiling at you there, although it was my first time to visit there but felt very familiar with it. Food is not bad and is reasonable with its price. Nice place to... More

Great beer and atmosphere. Its right in the center, and on a sunny day its a great place to have Weihenstephan or D'achouffe. I will definitely come back.
