Enjoy having dinner in this lovely restaurant once every couple of months and can certainly recommend it to everyone visiting Rotterdam. The food is outstanding, serving excellent wines and the service is just great! Located near the center of Rotterdam and they have an outside terras (great during summer period).

Very long waiting times for each corse of a 3-course pre-set ("surprise") menue whereas the restaurant was not full at all. Food was good but not excellent. Ambiente was nice.

Slow service beyond belief especially when the restaurant wasn't busy.One main course took over 2 hours! Drinks service poor. Nice location. Try's to be something it never will be. Maybe a visit to Wolseys in London would be educational!

Nice location in a small harbor in Rotterdam. Service is nice and what you would expect from this price level. Food is good; presentation is excellent. Would prefer a bit more outspoken combinations. Had 4 course surprise menu; first three courses where nice except for the sweet dessert. The base of the dessert was creme brûlée (to me boring for... More

Having mentioned an allergy for nuts and almonds to ALL staff attending our table we were presented with a dish that contained almonds. The manager was to arrogant to say sorry and prepared the same dish again mentioning something about being burned again ??? Shame that this person could not grasp the fact that being nearly poisoned by his staff... More

Unplanned visit to this restaurant on a rainy Sunday night. The service is a bit over the top, almost to the point of being uncomfortable and hovering. We we were one of a few parties there and at times the wait staff outnumbered the customers. Food was in small portions but very interesting and delicious. The highlight was the "cheese... More

Extremely knowledgeable staffs and they strive to be like a michelin star restaurant in termsof service and food. amazing cheese cart. Wine standard is abit behind the food.a couple of servers behaved quite snobbish but I wasnt affected. Onyl draw back that the waiting time between starters and mains is abit long.

The tempo in serving full 7 course meal is too slow. Some dishes and combinations are exceptional surprising and tastefull. Curry ice cream......mannnnnn what a sensation The wines... More

Restaurant at a great location in Rotterdam with easy parking nearby. After we were shown our table, the very friendly service staff presented us with the menu, where we decided to go for the 4 course surprise version (3 course as well as 7 course tasting menu are available) I will not go into details about what we ate, but...

We had a fantastic experience during our lunch in Allure. The service was great! We thoroughly enjoyed all the seven courses and the fantastic matching wines. We will definitely come back one day and recommend this restaurant to friends!
