Restaurant is located near the Erasmus bridge in Rotterdam. The food is good and friendly priced. Also the staff was friendly and the view across the harbor is also very nice. The restaurant is small and cozy. The only minor downside was the long wait before the food was served, but we were in no hurry.

Set in shipping containers between the road and the water, it doesn't look anything special, but once inside - or in the outside area - it's very pleasant, especially as the sun goes down over the water and the city beyond. It's relaxed and friendly, and the food quality (and quantity) is exceptional for the price. We had a shared... More

It's worth a visit for the lovely view over Rijnhaven and the interesting decor here. We had really friendly service too. The food was good but nothing special though. I think i'd like to go back to enjoy the view with a drink and some Mezze but I am not sure I would go regularly for dinner

The only thing good about this restaurant is location and their decor. Rest, it is super expensive, food is not worth the prize.Quantity of portion is very little and quality pathetic. We were two people and ordered same dish(falafals) as starters each along with some champions and bottle of wine. But, the waitress got both the portion in one small... More

Horrible staff, rude and unwilling. Markthal has better places to go. Didn't get our food, didn't get our drinks.

This place - basically a couple of converted containers - serves wonderful Turkish mezze overlooking the Rijnhaven. Very nice view! Service was friendly, but a bit messy too. Ordered coffee and sweets for desert; sweets came 20 (!) minutes after the coffee. Tip: ask for a window seat.

Obba has two locations in Rotterdam, one on the Hillelaan (at the Rijnhaven) and one in the Markthal. I ate at both restaurants and I really like Obba at the Rijnhaven. The food is very nice, spicy but not too spicy and at a interesting location. If you're on the south bank and want to have some good food, go... More

We had lunch here in the Markthal in Rotterdam on a Saturday. Really nice place with great food, quick service and very friendly people. Value was also very good with a big selection of mezze and grill meat on a big plate with bread, rice, fries and salad. Nice place to go for lunch. There is also a restaurant in... More

Obba is situated near water with a nice view. The atmosphere is relaxed and we were sitting on couches. We ordered a 4 course menu and we enjoyed the various dishes. Many different plates to share and enough for everyone.
