“Different and historical ”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

You have at least one time to go to this restaurant.

The student tradition is literally all over the place, the staff is nice and the kitchen is also in the middle of the room and pretty interactive.

So, positive points:

The variety of the wine list is quite impressive.
The staff, the atmosphere, the place full of photos in the walls and the kitchen are also nice and gives a touch of uniqueness that you won't be able to find nowhere else.

Negative points:

It's a little bit expensive, I think mostly because of the points above, because we have eaten the specialities of the house and they don't stand as impressive as the place self.

Bottom line,

You really have to experience de pijp yourself. It's an experience and a way to get sense of history in Rotterdam!

“Interesting and excellent”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Wouldn't have found that restaurant without trip advisor, but wouldn't want to miss it.
Tried to go there at first on a monday (it's closed then during the summer months as we know now) but came back a few days later and loved it.
Great food, nice people there and a great view on the kitchen that is located in the middle of the one small room that is the restaurant.

“Eat and hang out like a local, good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

I was taken here by a colleague who is a regular. The restaurant-bar is like secret hole in the wall, it looks scary from the outside, and probably doesn't attract a lot of tourist walk-ins.
It's a kind of spit and saw-dust atmosphere, where you have peanuts served, and then you're expected to throw the shells on the floor - but oddly with a formally dressed waiter serving like a pro!

Food is hearty - think steaks, and other meats served with vegetables and potatoes, and desserts are pancakes served with a selection of Dutch toppings. All of excellent quality, served with lots of beer and wines as you please. Friendly service too! Definitely a place to go!

“Excellent”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

Best food and atmosphere in Rotterdam.
The menu is available in English, but the staff are more than happy to help.
The open kitchen is great entertainment

“Interesting and nice”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I almost missed this place and hesitated to walk in initially, because it certainly didn't look like a restaurant from outside. But the staff were friendly and their authentic Dutch food was great. I had an enjoyable dinner.
