“Nice place to hang with friends but do not eat here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Through the years I have tried the food: breakfasts, lunch and dinner and the verdict has always been the same: just barely acceptable.
The restaurant should not be in the top list in Rotterdam.
But the vibe is good and atmosphere relaxed, nice terrace as well so go and enjoy with friends.

“Lunch wasnt so tasty..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

This place may attract with wide beer selections but my lunch was kind of vague.. i had an burger which had way too much ketchup on (why not to serve on side so one can choose the proper amount, if any!) which overwhelmed the taste of food. Didn't really enjoy it. Hopefully cook had just a bad day.

“Awesome breakfast, terrific lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

As I live in the neighbourhood of this nice restaurant/grand café located on the western side of the Rotterdam city centre, Wester Paviljoen forms a fantastic place to have breakfast, lunch, or just have a drink.
The lunch menu is down to earth, good food, so that alone is a reason to recommend it. It was only untill recently that my friends and I were hung over and looking for a place to eat so that we didn't need to bother making stuff ourselves. That's where a good old fashioned omelette is the perfect answer. With a cup of Joe on the side, this plate was like a divine light, shining through our miserable, head-ache filled head.
On a nice day you can site outside so the fresh air will help you recover from an unforgettable night in Rotterdam's club culture. A+!

“Exceptional traditional Dutch breakfasts, good beer list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

We don't bother with the hotel breakfast, preferring to eat here every day. Good value cafe type food, but good quality. The bar has 5 or 6 decent draught beers (prefer coffee & orange juice with breakfast though). The real winner is the efficient service and friendkliness, and good quality of spoken english (including English menus). Once lunch & dinner starts it gets quite busy, particularly sitting outside if the weather is good. The popularity amongst locals a tribute to its quality 7 good value.
