One of the worst services in Rotterdam. Terrible attitude. Turkish food, nice to have once in a while for lunch, when nice weather, but nothing spectacular. And if to choose by worse food but better service I would rather go to similar place but definitely not this. As its close to office and sometimes we decide to close eyes to the bad service, We do go there 1 or 2 times a year, just to enjoy location.

When the sun is shining this is the place to go for a romantic dinner while the sun is setting in the Maas river. With the Turkish music on the terrace you really feel like you're in the Mediterranean or at least not in Rotterdam.

The food is excellent although I must say that it is always a surprise. I understand the no menu concept and it's great you get to chose fish, meat or vegetarian but the hostess does not want to say what kind of fish or meat you are getting. I have so far never been disappointed but I can image in it is off-putting to some people if you just want to make sure you have a nice meal.

I would like to see more variety in the dessert. Its often baklava, which I don't like.

Would absolutely recommend this restaurant for a summer night out

We had lunch here last spring, but it was way too expensive for what you get. The dishes for lunch weren't very special or tasty and lacked any spices it seemed. The staff was also responding quite slow and it took quite some time before we got our meal. This really is a pitty because the location is wonderful with a perfect view on the river and towards the Wilhelminapier. There are however much better Turkish style restaurants in Rotterdam than this one.

We stopped here with family after doing some shopping and couldn't have picked a better spot! It was late July and the weather was perfect for sitting outside and enjoying the views of the water and Rotterdam. After having a glass of wine, we decidex to stay for dinner, the waiter came over and asked if we wanted beef or seafood and having six of us, half did beef and half did the seafood. First we were brought some loaves of what was the most amazing bread we've ever had, fresh warm, garlicy and cheesy. I noticed that at another table, that when they were fknished with their bread, the owner's wife gave it to the little boy to toss out for the seagulls, the little boy was so happy, it was very sweet. I think we must have had 4 big loaves! Then a little bit later they brought tapas to the table, great with that bread, there were several different types, along with tomatoes and eggplant, vegetable salsa, cucumber and such. A little while later our main course arrived, I had the beef, it was so beautifully presented, ln a bed of seasoned rice wkth a fried banana slice and vegetables. It was melt in your mouth delicious! After the main meal they brought us two quarter watermelons , tjey were presented in tact but sliced so they could be easily pulled apart. The perfect dessert after a savoury meal, sweet, yet cleansing to the palate. A tasty cup of coffee finished off our meal. There is something to be said about the way people in Europe take the time to enjoy a meal at a leisurely pace. We were there for four hours and it was a truly enjoyable experience. If you're in the area, check it out. One of the best meals we had on our 3 week long tripto Europe!

Not knowing Rotterdam we walked down to the Maas and came across this restaurant...
'Hmmm... no menu?'
That sounded interesting
And so it proved, it took a few minutes to attract someone's attention and I suppose it must be a bit of pot luck as to what is on food-wise but the staff were reasonably efficient and the night we were there (the veg and the fish main courses) the food was fine. (The bread was delicious.. and my wife is not a big bread eater!) It is the fact you're almost in the harbour that is the best thing though, watching the barges and water taxis and people's children being encouraged, by the owner, to feed the seagulls. The trams roaring over the bridge next to you, locals wandering along the riverbank etc etc. Thank heavens the weather was good as it wouldn't have been the same sitting inside.
