We enjoyed this restaurant very much. We wanted a neighbourhood place and this fit the bill. It was a bit hard to find, but worth the search. The waitress was wonderful and helped us order. The soup tasted just like my Mom's! We lingered over...More

We were looking for an authentic Dutch restaurant and found it. Good food, good prices and exceptionally friendly staff. We relaxed, ate well and enjoyed the walk back to our hotel.

On this location the restaurant "Eeterij Vader Jacob" was established until this restaurant closed very suddenly in January 2013. This sudden closure made me sad, because "Eeterij Vader Jacob" was one of my favorite restaurants, despite the fact that it was situated in a tired...More

Don't be mistaken by the first appearance of the restaurant, the food and service is excellent. We used a Groupon to try this restaurant and we can recommend it. The service is excellent, the waiters really want you to be satisfied.

This restaurant serves well cooked food for a reasonable price; the service is attentive and polite. (Really better than the average service in Dutch restaurants). As this restaurant is located in an unobtrusive shopping mall in a Rotterdam suburb, I would like to draw the attention of my fellow travelers to it. If you looking for a posh luxury restaurant, do not go there, but if you are looking for an excellent cooked meal for a reasonable price, this place is a gem.
