good local restaurant

The menu had a number of delicious italian dishes, with a couple of vege options for my friend. We picked some of the antipasti selection from the cart, and had the risotto as a main.

Since most good restaurants are closed on Sundays, I was happy to find Lux open, because had something to celebrate. Besides, as the name and website info implies, expected it to have a classy, intimate setting in a very appealing price range. Didn't find that. First of all, the restaurant is located in a rather shady neighborhood...or so it seamed... More

It had been quite some time ago since my wife and I had visited Lux (i.e., 2012), and this time we found the restaurant back reduced by 50% in size, and run by the former chef de cuisine who had taken over business in 2013. The reduction in size has benefited the restaurant; there was much less echo and therefore,... More

I went to this very nice restaurant couple of times with my girl friend while we were visiting Rotterdam. After long days of walking in the beautiful streets of the city what could have been more rewarding than enjoying an absolutely wonderful food in a very cozy and inviting atmosphere. Overall the service was excellent. The food was very good.... More

The menu was only in holland language. The translation from waitress was " this is fish, this is veal..." And the cook admit himself drink a beer right to the entry to the restaurant at his working hours!

During my two weeks visit to Rotterdam in May, I was lucky enough to try this home style restaurant not only once but three times. The restaurant itself has a very beautiful, relaxing surroundings with a soft well chosen music playing on a turntable. Everything seemed to be very authentic and well thought. The waitress was very friendly and attentive.... More

One of the best italian restaurants i have been to. As an italian food lover i can say that every bite you take makes you feel like you're in heaven. While sitting in the back garden, feeling like you're in Italy, i tasted one of the best homemade desserts. Everything was so fresh and tasty! Can't wait to go again.... More
