“Great atmosphere. Good food. Not great for vegetarians.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Really nice restaurant. Completely different to how it looks from the outside! Very friendly service from our kind waiter, who took the time to explain the menu to us.
A good selection of meat and fish/seafood dishes. Mains are around 20 euros. A very homely feel, nice to see the open kitchen. Recommend!

“Excellent food and informal dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

The atmosphere is informal but pretty dark and not very stylish. same for the restaurant exterior appearance and entrance in a residential neighborhood side street. No linen tablecloths here and guests are put together on large tables. I like this kind of atmosphere and the food is excellent which is where my 5-star rating comes from, but this kind of dining atmosphere is not for everyone. The tiny kitchen is open so you can see how your food is being treated. Cooks and waiters are all students or at least that age, but they know what they are doing and the overall result is a very good and interesting experience. I left this place with a nicely filled stomach.

“Good food and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I was in Rotterdam for one cold night alone when travelling on business and was looking for somewhere to eat and De Pijp was just what I needed. The description on Trip Advisor was accurate, this is a cosy quirky place, with mainly male customers. But is was very friendly, the service was helpful and the waiters spoke very good interest. I was seated close to the open kitchen area to make me feel involved and this was great. The food was good (I ate seafood) and the small wine list was good too. It was not cheap, but was good value.

“Diner in an old cycle stand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

One of the best meals I had in Rotterdam was undoubtedly at Pjipe. The atmosphere is crazy with all the old fraternity photos and ties on the wall, and especially after knowing that this place was earlier a cycle stand.

Also got to know that students of a particular university actually queue up to get a server job at the Pjipe and it is considered as a great accolade.

I had the carpacchio (pic attached) , oysters and "back of wild hare" ... Saw one of the most awesome food spread on the menu and was pleasantly surprised.

I strongly recommend the oysters and carpacchio - hare was a hit or miss
