Outside Rotterdam in the "polders" this nice restaurant/brasserie is a fine place to have lunch or diner. You have an extensive menu with choice for every one. From a small dish/appetizer or an extensive meal, you have it all. Profesional and very friendly staff give a swift service ! Good adres, don't hesitate !

Four of us were entertained by a bubbly young waitress who tried hard to help. There was enough variety of food to satisfy us, and we enjoyed quality food matched by quality house wine in a relaxed and interesting setting. Sadly, we were too full for the desserts by a famed patissiere.

This restaurant is situated in a green environment near the marina and golfcourse of Rhoon. And near the willow wetfields (grienden) of Rhoon. The atmosphere is laid back and relaxed, the food is ok and staff is friendly. There' s also a playground for children.

Very nice place overlooking the pitch and putt golf course nearby the actual golf course of Rhoon. We had nice salads, which were huge, and I had eggs with bread, bacon and ham, which was very good. The young personnel was very friendly, but lacks a little bit of experience. The terrace is well located. Around midday sun at the... More

An unplanned visit to this slightly over-trendy restaurant (wooden chairs, wooden everything, more reminiscent of a beach hut than a "grand" café, delivered a great experience. Our local was closed on a Monday evening and we decided to give Abel another chance: the previous visit sent me home hungry on a meanly portioned salad. This time the waiter was cheerful... More

Recently the hubby and I enjoyed a pleasant meal at Abel, where the staff are very friendly and - what's more - very competent. The pasta with tenderloin, mushrooms and parmesan was a surprising but lovely combination; accompanied by a very nice house red, and finished off with a refreshing sorbet, and all this for very reasonable prices, in a...

Restaurant Abel at Albrandswaard offers a great selection of food for both lunch and dinner. I enjoyed a business lunch at Abel last summer and we were sitting outside on the sunny terrace, which provides a very relaxing view on the greens of the "pitch and put" that Abel operates directly next to the terrace. I have ordered a very... More
