Had dinner with a group of friends, most of whom had not been here before. The atmosphere here is great, with a nice view over the river. The reception very friendly and the various dishes ordered (a.o. mussels, salmon, tuna steak) very well presented and really tasty. Staff were quick, knowledgeable and friendly, with a quick joke here and there (without being impertinent)
All concerned were rather impressed and we had a great night !!
NB: Zalmhuis also caters for wedding and other parties.

not eating animal products can be challenging when travelling, however, this restaurant offers a couple vegetarian options.
i had the dish called "Boulcourgette", which consists of a warm tabouleh salad within a round courgette, along with braised potatoes and other vegetables. for dessert i had "Koude soep van vers fruit" which consists of chopped fruit, a berry 'soup', coconut sorbet and mint.
both dishes were delicious.
the decor is french art nouveau and there are views on the water.
it was raining when i visited, however, there seems to be a nice terrace as well.

Great old atmoshere, food is ok, nice views on the river with a lovely terrace. Reachable with the Watertaxi! A rebuild monument in Rotterdam. And yes it is called the House of Salmon and yes they are catching salmon in the river! Lovely bar. Great for business as well.

We had a great table on the deck, overlooking the River Maas, with the Erasmus Bridge in the background. Our party of seven overal was pleased with the service, but ended up with mixed reviews. The flat iron steak, tender and tasty, went over well. Sautéed Mediterranean vegetables, including zucchini and eggplant, made up for the tin-shaped potato-cheese side, which cooled quickly to a solid yellow blob. This vegetable mix wasn't mentioned on the menu, and I had to ask for a second plating without the usual suspects, red bell pepper and cherry tomatoes. Since their juices had spilled onto the plate it wasn't a matter of just taking the allergens off.
Two of us ordered the "Steak préparé; Dutch grass-fed beef with classic garnish, tomato salsa and chips." There was nothing classic about this dish, and neither diner was impressed. Anyone who has enjoyed the traditional steak tartare will be offended by excellent meat mixed up with chopped red bell pepper (reason why I couldn't chance a taste) and other ingredients.
Our two vegetarians enjoyed the salmon combi, and the stuffed portobello.
Cooling evening air sent us inside for desserts and coffee, all of which were fine.
All over it was a nice experience, and with the exception of the "steak preparé" which didn't go over well, good value for the price of the 3-course menus.

The restaurant is a short 7min drive from Erasmus University, and located on the river with very nice views. We had lunch with a larger group here. Service is friendly and efficient. Larger groups are easily accommodated. Very well suited for a business lunch or dinner. The salmon salad is really nice as a lunch option and highly recommended.
