“Nice little harbor with a windmill and local beer brewery.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Nice place for a walk if you want to feel like in “old Holland”. Nice for a local beer and some snacks.

“Delfthaven”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We arrived in Delfshaven at around 10.45 a.m. and everything seemed closed up. This was on a Thursday in August so not sure if this was a closing day but there were no cafes open for coffee and all shops shut , so seemed a bit dead really. We enjoyed the walk around and saw where the Pilgrim Fathers set of for America. Went back into Rotterdam and found some brilliant clothes shops and shopping malls. . Great for shopaholics! Next time we go we will take the train to Delft only 9 miles outside Rotterdam. The coach from the ferry drops you at central station so it is very easy reach for a day out and back for the 5p.m. coach back to the ferry (P&O from Hull)

“Wonderful surrounding through the water channel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Wow, exciting, a beautiful place, a pleasant walk along this channel, without a doubt one of the most beautiful areas of the city.
Walking up and down the canal one has the impression of walking in the history of this wonderful city.
Along this avenue, plenty of pubs, restaurants and shops. Unforgettable adventure.

“SPECIALITY FOODS FROM AROUND THE WORLD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

A brief stop-over for a snack in Delfshaven gave rise to some serious ethnic shopping. For a small town, I was delighted to find items such as Portuguese Goiabada in a local shop and also at a reasonable price. There was a plethora of such stores here and the supermarket was also full of a great selection of items.

“Pleasant harbour with nice bars & cafes & shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Delftshaven is easily accessible by tram & metro. It is a pleasant quiet harbour, a scenic pleasant oasis away from the concrete and glass of central Rotterdam. There are some excellent bars, cafes and art shops on the waterfront. My favourite watering hole is De Pelgrim brew pub. Its beer are excellent and the food is good.
