“Lovely covered terrace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a lovely meal with bouillabaisse and asparagus with good service on a quiet Sunday evening. This is in a glass covered restaurant and bar area close to the centre next to the Erasmus bridge. Lots of choice if one place is fully booked.

“Loved it...!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We had a delicious 3 course surprise menu, which was very very tasty... Presentation of THE dessert could be better... But, that is a minor detail, THE taste was good and that is what counts ..
Restaurant itself is located in a sort of old warehouse, which is transformed into many different restaurants. We love to eat here when in Rotterdam and have tried many different places in this building. Van Vollenhoven looks very trendy and classy... We loved THE decoration... Good athmosphere...
You can sit outside, but this means: outside THE restaurant, but still under THE glass-roof of THE building. Nevertheless... You can see people walking by, on their way to THE other restaurants also located at THE Westelijk Handelsterrein...
In THE area enough parking both outside as in a parking garage, both NOT for FREE, off course!!!
Or within walking distance from public transport, such as tram, subway, waterbus-stop and even a water-taxi..!

“Only appearance”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I come to this restaurant by chance, beautiful environment with an open kitchen next to tables, and from there depart sorrowful notes, while very young chefs prepare dishes using a rag to do everything, clean the workbench, the pots and even the plates served which will then be served to the guests, if the kitchen is a open space also the caliber of the chefs must be consequent fact, the dishes are hit with disproportionate use of microwave.
