This is one of the unique restaurant that I like. Serves good beer and British food which aren’t bad at all but tasty! What’s unique about it is that the restaurant is a boat. I love the friendliness of the service staff and coziness of...More

Lovely situated in an old lighthouse-boat in the Rotterdam old harbour. Service is very friendly, food is OK. It was listed as "tapas" but it's more pub-food. Had some lovely drinks and the nachos, then went off for dinner elsewhere.

A return visit here and equally good as the previous ones! Quirky, with friendly staff and delicious British themed menu food. Well worth a try....

I liked vessel 11, it has alot of character, being an old light vessel. It is however English based, which put me off eating there a bit. That is not to say I'm not partial to fish and chips or a pie, but being British...More

Vessel 11 is the Netherlands' first British gastropub. The restaurant, bar and live music venue is a magical location onboard an old British lightship docked in the heart of Rotterdam. The ship's kitchen serves British pub food with a modern and seasonal twist. On weekends V11 offers what the Brits do best; a full English breakfast and a Sunday roast. In addition to Vessel 11's bar and restaurant, the ship also has a regular line up of great bands that play in its intimate venue in the belly of the ship. Furthermore, if you are up for a taste of the outrageously decadent you can book a ride in V11's HotTug - a boat and a hot tub in one. Soak in steaming water as you check out the sights of Rotterdam from one of its historic canals. V11 has the welcoming feel of a friend's living room and is an enchanting mixture of comfort, quality and quirkiness.
