“A nice little place”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This is the kind of place you just walk into by coincident, ending up having a great lunch. I had excellently butter fried Dover sole served with vegetables and French fries (always these fries) and a chilled glass of white wine. Service was a bit slow but very friendly. I recommend this place for a stop while doing the city tour of Rotterdam.

“Great food. Good selection of beers. Bit expensive.”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Atmosphere is great and the staff is lovely. If you is a fan of belgium beers they've got a nice selection (both taps and bottles). La Chouffe on tap is always a good call and Westmalle Dubbel always work well as a nightcap. The Guinea Fowl with maple syrup is was well prepared and is a fair portion. Total spend for a pint of La Chouffe Houblon and the Guinea Fowl: 26€.

“Wonderful hangout”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Sijf is one of my favourite Rotterdam hangouts. It has a nice terrace and the inside is cosy too. The spareribes are the best in Rotterdam- check their all you can eat spareribs day! Lots of different beers to choose from. Good atmosphere, good price!

“Beautiful authentic bar/restaurant”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you are in Rotterdam you HAVE to lunch here.
This is my favourite eatery in Rotterdam because it is so unpretentious.
The interior is authentic & aged but it feels cozy & welcome.
Had a few meals here as well as just stopped in for a coffee, cake or drink.
Staff are honest & must be commended. My uncle left his credit card in the bill wallet & we only realised hours later. I made a call to the restaurant, spoke to the manager & he confirmed the credit card was there & in the safe. Before he confirmed, he double checked I knew the full name on the card & made sure we were legit. We drove out immediately to collect the card & couldnt have been more appreciative for their honesty. Of course, we bought all the staff a round :-) Amazing to know there are still 100% honest people like this around.
Highly recommended.

“Very nice, relaxing bar with great food”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Had a really nice evening here and returned for lunch the following day. Feels very typically dutch with a really nice ambience. Service and beers excellent and the food was to a very high standard. No complaints at all, and we will return next time in Rotterdam.
