Old Dutch Pub

Very atmospheric old pub inside and good pedestrianised street terrace outside. Good range of draught Belgian beers. Traditional dutch pub food. We had Rotterdam croquettes and a "Plank" of bread cheese ham and salad. Good value at around €7.50 each. Worth a visit for the building interior. English... read more

Went to restaurant Sijf last week and on the terrace I had a great dinner. All you can eat Sateh. Really well done, tasty fries and enjoyed a nice wine during dinner and a great cappuccino afterwards. Highly recommended!

Went to visit Rotterdam, so couldn't resist visiting Sijf, one of my favourite bars in Rotterdam since my student days. What strikes me, is that, even though I left Uni 17 yrs ago, the Sijf is still as appealing as always! Great vibe, service, drinks, food, music: all top notch. If you like bars and pubs, that serve quality food... More

Went to this pub with some friends. The service is great (something normal in Rotterdam), and the reservation system worked just fine (and right on time). The food is very well made, we ordered fish n' chips and the lamb, both perfect! Also, there's plenty belgian beers. I can't remember wich ones i've tried, but I assure you they were... More

The Sijf is a very handsome pup, the best part is that it is also the food. They have a varied menu and very nice waitresses. I had a salad and mustard soup, which turned out to be a culinary dream. We recommend.

It's amazing to leave the large modern city of Rotterdam and walk into this cozy dark candlelit space with wooden floors, stained glass and low ceilings. There is an English menu available on request. A lot of traditional dutch items on the menu. I had a salmon omlette served with a small salad and two thick slices of dark bread.... More

This inner city pub-on-the-corner boasts a traditional, warm decor. Staff are friendly and very efficient. As we have recently moved to the neighborhood we are quite pleased with this find. Dinner menu had Holiday specials, all very tasty and totally worth the modest price tag. The champagne we ordered complimented a very nice meal. Jazzy music, all in all a... More
