“Exellent food, great variety”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

Since my discovery of this little gem some years back, I've returned many times. Rest assured, I've yet to be disappointed.

Upon entering you feel the warmth of the interior as well as that off the staff. You feel at home right away.

The food is a Mediterranean/Caribbean fusion, so the food is fresh and fairly light. The dishes are small and are served like tapas basically. You order a few different dishes and share them amongst the table. My favorite being the Piská ku funchi hasá (fish with fried cornmeal; a delicacy back home on the ABC islands.) You can order all at once, or one after another, it doesn't matter, as the food comes out quickly. Still hungry after you've downed 4 dishes? No problem, just order more!

The owners are a husband/wife duo, with the husband (from Aruba) in the kitchen and his wife working the front end. She's a very gracious host who's always in for a chat.

Try it! you won't be disappointed.

“Great caribean-mediterranean food in the heart of Rotterdam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

I have been in Taberna Dushi 4 times already and it has never disappointed me. This well located small restaurant offers great comfort food.

They offer a small menu that keeps being updated according to the available seasonal ingredients. The recommendation is to order several dishes to share between the diners. Their meat stews are great, I highly recommend them! They also have really good fresh fish.

Staff is really nice too, which makes the overall experience even better!

We have sometimes gotten a table without reservation. But since the restaurant is not very big, you better make a reservation, specially in the weekend.

“Good food, splendid staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Taberna Dushi has a basic interior. But staff is very kind and helpfull, so you’ll get the idea to be at home soon.
Kitchen is Mediterranean and dishes are small, so you order some dishes and share these. With 4 adults we took 8 dishes, but ordered them in two rounds.
The food was more than sufficient and well spiced, but not too much.
We liked the spare ribs, entrecote and pieces of patato in sauce best.
Water is free and drinks – as all costs – are not overpriced.
Dushi offers very good quality and again: staff is very helpfull and friendly!
