We were here during a private party with family and friends. We could here the whole evening tasting various wines. The owner and operator could also tell us a lot about the different types of wines. During the evening we got a dozen dishes. All equally tasty. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, the good food and the different types of... More

We came with 7 to enjoy the surprise dinner of the chef. All good. The waiter really listened to what we didn't want and the cook managed to please us all with a nice variety of dishes - when necessary slightly adapted to individual taste. Wine is really a passion here. Rare wines were very well combined with the dishes😋.... More

We have a lot of get togethers with friends and since all of us work in hospitality sometimes it's nice to go out and see what and how our colleagues are doing. A bit of support but also the chance to get pampered for a change. This time the occasion was the introduction of a new boyfriend to the rest... More

't Ouwe Bruggetje is a cosy restaurant in the historic, posh part of Delfshaven along one of the waterways that make up the network of canals in the area. Although it was a midweek visit, the restaurant was reasonably full, so booking is probably advised, particularly at weekends. Thankfully there was no English translation of the menu. Much more fun... More

We live a couple of houses away from this restaurant and are frequent visitors. Every time we have come, the staff was absolutely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They know the food and drinks inside out and achieve the perfect combination for you. The menu is always changing and has been fantastic every time. A lot of fresh and seasonal products... More

Then Old Bridge has a repuation for good food and excellent wines. They are also wine merchants who obviously love their trade. The reputation is well deserved, we'll be back here.

My husband and I had a memorable dinner at t' Ouwe Bruggetje. We walked to the Delfshaven area of Rotterdam and stumbled upon this restaurant- not recommended by our Fodor's guide, which we were using to find good restaurants. At 5:30pm, the owner and chef greeted us and sat us on the patio though dinner would not be served for... More

T ouwe bruggetje (the old bridge) is a small restaurant in historical delfshaven in Rotterdam. Service is very good, the owner explains the wines that are accompanying the surprise menu, and they take the time to help you properly. Food was good as well, although I believe the meat dishes are better than the vegetarian dishes they prepare. If you... More
