Awesome place :)

This is my favorite restaurant by a long shot! Went there again last thursday and was great once again. Had the escargot to start and then the tournedos, both of which I'll definitely recommend

Spent evening with colleagues in Rotterdam and was looking for something unique, with good food. De Pijp met all expectations, although from the exterior you would get a different impression. After having visited > 10 restaurants in Rotterdam definitely a place to go with good food (chalk board against the walls). Don't expect luxury seats, original wood is what you... More

Worth a trip to Rotterdam, even if you weren't planning it. Host/owner Jilles is warmest guy you can meet in this restaurant that exists since 1898 - absolutely impossible to find, with writers, politicians, CEOs sitting together at long tables. My kinda place since 1987...never disappoints!

Tonight P and I stepped back in time at de Pijp. From the entrance where greeted by Phillip, charming, holland tall, and efficient, in the traditional waiter white coat and shirt, black pants..and tie...to become significant later...to one of the most enjoyable dining experiences P and I have ever had. After pushing through a darkly lit, heavy wooden door, we... More

Atmosphere is very particular and worth seeing, food is ok (not amazing), kitchen is almost in the middle of the room so you can actually see the preparation of what you are going to eat. improvement areas are the service (not very friendly and even least professional) and the price, which is way too high given the type of place...

Back in de Pijp after an absence of some years. Nothing had changed, food still good, interior interesting and pleasant, but... More than in our previous visits we noted that the noise level is really very high, of course related to the large number of people on not so many square meters. After some hours we really started to feel... More

This was my first time in Pijp. The atmosphere of the restaurant is great. Traditional, with excellent staff, and loved the fact that the kitchen is open and in the middle of the room. Good variety of plats, and yammie deserts :) They have english menu, or you can try to translate the plats written in the wall. The staff,... More

Surprised to sit shoulder-to-shoulder in between two parties but it was still an enjoyable evening. So glad we made reservations (called the afternoon of) as it was a packed house not long after our 8pm appt. on a blustery, rainy night. The food was very good despite it being previously rated as 'not for the food' --- get the 'packet'... More

Dining at De Pijp is a unique experience. I am told the Décor is pretty much unchanged since the day WWII finished. I have never come across anything to match it ANYWHERE. Take note; NO CREDIT CARDS! Literally a hole in the wall, it is not easy to find Gaffelstraat, 90 RM 3014 Rotterdam 010-43 66 896010-43 66 896. Tourists... More
