Delicious! The service was amazing. Very helpful if you aren't a Dutch speaker. Open kitchen so you can watch the cooks work their magic. Restaurant is located in an alley, so easy to miss if you aren't looking for it. Great atmosphere & highly recommend!

This place was recommended by a person at our hotel and if they hadn't described it, we would have walked right by as it is very nondescript on the outside in a small side street. The inside, however, is just amazing. It is an open kitchen and grill in a warm and welcoming pub/restaurant like atmosphere. The service was extremely friendly and they were very knowledgeable about the specials, which were proudly displayed on chalkboards along the wall. I decided to have the hare special and my friend had a pork plate selection. Both were very tasty and perfectly cooked. The sides were very good and aesthetically pleasing. The desserts were also very nice and the perfect way to finish such a terrific meal. Search i out, but be careful because you may miss it!

Visited with coworkers on a Tuesday evening. Looking at the entrance, I would have never gone in had it not been for the favorable reviews on TripAdvisor. Also not speaking Dutch would have concerned me because the place looked very Dutch. It looked like the kind of place where only locals would visit.
I was pleasantly surprised. The staff greeted us very professionally and made us feel welcomed. Inside was very interesting and comfortable. The food preparation takes place near the center of the room. The food was fantastic. I had the Tournedos steak. They don't ask you how you want it. If you want something other than medium rare, let your waiter know.
I was surprised they only had one type of draft beer and two in bottles. I would have expected more choices but none the less, the Blond Belgian beer was very good.

Don't hesitate to visit this great little place.
Like all other reviews it looks like nothing from the entrance but it's an Aladdin's cave when you step through the door.
It was great to visit Rotterdam and be able to find some local cuisine- which was absolutely delicious.
The service was impeccable and very helpful with our limited Dutch!
Most mains are in the regions of 20euro, which is a good average for the area.
I had the deer goulash which was divine and my husband the rib-eye steak- also delicious.
It's fun, quirky, good value, friendly and the food is fabulous- you can't go wrong.
We were lucky enough to get a couple of seats without a booking. If you are a larger crowd you definitely need to book.
Just around the corner are a plethora of great bars for a post dinner drink- all equally great and it was hard to choose.
Thanks De Pijp for a great night (our only in Rotterdam!)
