Bitterballen & Best Brewed Beer

Right next door to the Pilgrim Father Church is the city brewery Pilgrim. Nice atmosphere, good beer and yummy Bitterballen (savory fried dough balls). Great for a late afternoon break from touring Rotterdam!

Ate hear on a quiet Sunday evening. Very pleasant waitress with excellent English. Chose a 300g steak and it was the most tender and perfectly cooked that I think I can ever remember. Whole meal a very enjoyable experience.

A marvelous stop on a walk around Delfthaven. Nice food, (great soup) and of course the famour Pilgrim Beer, which is exceptional in all of the incarnations. The pub is certainly atmospheric, and the resident cat checks you out to see if you are up to standard. Delfthaven is really an interesting diversion to the modernity of Rotterdam, and well... More

Called in here for a couple of drinks and a bite to eat with some friends. The staff were very friendly and together with some visiting Norwegians we were given a quick tour round the brewery. We loved the fact that like the UK microbreweries like this are thriving. Long may it continue. Loved the beer and loved the food.... More

As the only brewery in rotterdam, this is a must see! Great beer and an extensive menu as well. I'd suggest the recipe from the 1500's.

This is an interesting part of town. The restaurant is actually a "brew-pub" and is located next to the church from where the Pilgrims departed toward their Journey's end at Plymouth Rock (although they stopped in England on the way). They have a variety of their own beers and pub food, which, based on what we had, is not at... More

This is a really nice location on the water - even exceptional by Rotterdam standards - and the room is sunny (or at least light) and comfortable. Pleasant staff serve some really nice craft beers and the core 'stoombier' is a very decent session drink. If it were only a bar than 'poor' would be unkind. Perhaps we hit a... More
