We accepted the proposed menu and we have been happy doing it. The courses were quite sophisticated but really an excellent combination of flavors. Every course was accompanied by a different glass of wine: started with deutsche white wine (the best of the evening), then a French white wine (good but not comparable with the previous), last but not least...

Two weeks ago, we moved to Rotterdam. My aunt and uncle had planned a trip to Europe to celebrate my aunt's birthday, and decided to include us in their itinerary. Between unpacking boxes, and just trying to remember my way home from the market, I had to find a fabulous restaurant for my aunt's birthday. My uncle had given me... More

We ate here for Valentine's Day, the food was excellent. Service was friendly but they obviously had it quite busy, attention for bread and drinks were lacking a little. Beautiful and stunning location, never would expect it in the middle of the city

This spot holds a special place in my heart. My parents celebrated their wedding here ages ago and I am glad it has become a modern, delicate restaurant. A glorious garden for summer time dining. A calm inviting inside space and a fab hanging menu plus the location hidden away is a gem. There is great dining in Rotterdam and... More

This is a great place in Rotterdam, not exactly in the center but, easy to get to by either public transport or by car/taxi about 5 min from the center. It is located in an old farmhouse which is redecorated and has a really great feel to it, great atmosphere. The food is old school Dutch ingredients but, prepared, served... More

A very pleasant exterior. Paid parking with plenty of place available (booo!) Highly tasteful interior. Attentive, well trained but slightly remote staff. Excellent set menus, with the "Bib" menu (for the Michelin Bibendum this restaurant has won) and the day's menu (3 or 4 courses) as toppers. The chef's specialty is fish, but his other dishes are most excellent also.... More

Ver nicely located near the Kralingen area in Rotterdam, this restaurant is regarded by locals as one of the best places to spend some time and have a nice meal. I agree that is certainly possible and the quality of food and drinks is good. However like many other restaurants, the cook at this restaurant seems to think that `... More

Every detail of our evening at this charming eatery was perfect. The food was DELICIOUS, the service prompt and comfortable (no fussy trying-too-hard vibe) and most impressively, the staff was kind and genuine. For a relaxed, yet still upscale and quality meal look no further. This is my new favorite restaurant in Rotterdam. **also they are incredibly vegetarian-friendly, with dishes... More

The location and the authentic old building give In Den Rustwat a very special and charming atmosphere. Service is very good, efficient and attentive. The food is classic French-inspired with original elements. The Bib-gourmand menu is very good value. Good wine selection as well. Very good place for special occasions.
