Just out of the main thoroughfare, just on the edge of the city center... An old building with the right atmosphere, that dominates this square... You can't miss the Wester Paviljoen. It's usually packed with a lunch crowd, so don't be late or reserve in advance. The menu offers no surprises, but everything is what you would expect for the... More

Visited Wester Paviljoen on the 15th August. It was a lovely warm evening so I sat outside. The location is great , the staff were lovely and the drinks and food were reasonably priced. I was unfortunately leaving the next day , if I wasn't I would have definitely gone back. It's only up the road from the busy, but... More

This restaurant is away from the centre of Rotterdam on the corner of a crossroad. It has a large and pleasant outside terrace perfectly positioned for people watching. It is very popular with locals and we enjoyed a reasonably priced light lunch here on a hot day. The service was good. The interior is also large and has a traditional... More

This bar restaurant is a meeting place for people who would like to show themselves as hip or interesting. Quality of food is not spectacular, staff is not very interested or professional. Could be nice for a quick lunch but there are other sides which serve better food, have better staff and better prices.

This place is really close to my work so we come here quite often to eat and drink a beer after work. Service is always quick and good. On a sunny day sit outside and enjoy a white beer.

I love to go there with my partner for a weekend lunch. Delicious selection of sandwiches with a freshly made bread, yoghurt or scrambled eggs will reassure you a good beginning of the day. Dinner is also great, with a quality Dutch food. Do not get fooled by a simplicity of the menu as all the ingredients are carefully selected... More

Both meals were served with fries, excellent. For dessert we shared Lemon meringue pie it was very good, not too tart! I thought this was reasonably priced. I bill with... More

I went here for breakfast twice, the food was good and the staff very nice. The restaurant has a nice large sitting area out in the front which was great to sit in the morning sun.
