Hands down the best pork satay I've ever had. Great beer selection as well, and conveniently located close to the buttplug gnome. Staff are great as well. You cannot go wrong with a visit here.

Went there based on the good reviews. The atmosphere was a stressing because there was a group of 8 people from UK in their 30's and they were just so noisy - yelling all the time without no need of it! On the other hand the food was good and the other hand not, like the lobster soup was pretty... 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

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 menu.

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.
