“Great food & exceptional service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We wandered past this restaurant in the afternoon & like the look of the menu - particularly the 26 euro 3 course daily special so we returned for dinner. The meal was a herring, beetroot & granny smith apple salad, followed by steak with handcut chips & a pear sorbet, rhubarb compote & cake dessert. When we mentioned to the waiter that we (visitors from Australia) had tried herring for the first time the day before & really liked it, he produced an extra fillet to go with our salad. A lovely touch.

The service here was some of the best we have ever experienced. The two waiters were so friendly & helpful. They treated us like we were well-known regulars when we were tourists who had walked in off the street. I could see that they were just as friendly & attentive with all the other diners too. It is well worth a visit.

“Restful and tasty break !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Heard about their Club sandwiches and wanted to test, had the classical one, excellent with fresh and very tasty products, added their home made fries, perfect... after so many kms by foot to enjoy Rotterdam by a sunny day.
Delightful welcome, peaceful decor and music

“Nice new venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Rodin is a newcomer in de Witte de Withstraat but a good one! Try the truffel vélouté, it's wonderful. Nice people, nice place, good food. Good place to take your parents for example, like I did :)

“Perfect for both lunch and dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I love this place! I've been there a couple of times this year for both lunches and dinners. Food is delicious, the wines are great and service is excellent. The waiters make sure you have the best experience possible, are extremely helpful and they surprise you with their attentiveness. These are people who love what they do and are all about the details. The cherry on the cake: the excellent value for money! It can't get any better than that!

“Good food at nice location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We had a light lunch here consisting of the the goosebreast salad, the truffel soup and a club sandwich. The salad was smaller than I expected, but contained lots of goose and the combination with mango was very nice. The truffel soup was very truffely in a good way and the club sandwich was filling.

We were the first clients of the day and service was very prompt, with the waiter holding the door open when they saw us enter. There were also some toys to keep our two-year old busy. Also nice was the fact that at just slightly after twelve o'clock we were actually able to order a hot soup and goose-salad and not only the sandwich.

The place itself is quite big with high ceilings. It's not very intimate, but would probably be very suited to large groups, but it is in no way an eating shed.
