This place could be truly great. More than 100 years old, super friendly staff and authentic decoration with kitchen stove virtually next to the tables. Unfortunately, the waiter placed us at about the only table with a clear view into the back kitchen where the...More

Oldest restaurant in Rotterdam and a great discovery. An informal and historical place full of amazing people and good food. We had some croquettes, a salad, a delicious duck confit and a Ribera del Duero bottle of wine.

Totally unique. I can't begin to describe the decor. You need to go and see this place for yourself. Bench style tables mean that you can sit with complete strangers - we found ourselves sitting next to a Russian businessman, now living in USA, who...More

This restaurant is a Rotterdam institution, and for that reason it is worth eating here. Interior is dark with souvenir stickers on the walls. Food is typical Dutch, better than normal but not the best

Had a filet mignon with mushroom sauce with some potato. The meat was very well cooked and tasted delicious. Overall the food was very good and the atmosphere is very cosy and pleasant. Do not recommend for romantic diners because the service is very casual,...More

Oldest restaurant of Rotterdam. Not just a restaurant, De Pijp transports you to a richly textured and authentic world, where tradition still has a warm and friendly meaning and the food is absolutely delicious. A place for a completely memorable and unique experience. You can watch the chefs in the open kitchen cook your food to order, and it will arrive at your table fresh and piping hot. Service is fabulous -- fast, friendly and professional.
