Restaurants in Rotterdam


Port city Rotterdam is the place to be for the hip and modern. Culinary innovations are churned out at high speed, but the city also has many good traditional restaurants. You can eat and drink 24 hours per day, not just in the city centre but throughout town. The Scheepvaartkwartier and Museumkwartier also boast countless restaurants serving food from around the world. We have selected a few for you...

Stroom (Lloydstraat 1): A trendy restaurant in a former power plant, with great staff serving excellent food. You can even spend the night here.

Parkheuvel (Heuvellaan 21): This special Michelin star restaurant is located in the park by the Parkhaven. Famous for its special flavour combinations and matching wines, this restaurant definitely deserves two Michelin stars.

Boudoir (Meent 65a): From finger food to excellent French cuisine, eat on velvet couches in a glamorous, stylish interior.

Citroen (Prinsendam 130): Located in the 'Kop van Zuid' (Southern head), this restaurant serves excellent Mediterranean dishes in a modern, romantic atmosphere. A lovely terrace in summer!

Dewi Sri (Westerkade 20): This stately merchant’s house on the Meuse serves a wonderful ‘rice table’ and other great traditional Javanese and Sumatran dishes.

Bazar (Witte de Withstraat 16): Colourful tables, eye-catching lighting and dishes originating primarily in Northern Africa and the Middle East. Wonderful, flavourful and great prices.

Eau Lounge (Boompjes 750): The best-kept secret of Rotterdam... Eau Lounge serves food on a wonderful terrace with views of the Erasmusbrug bridge. This is the place to go for fusion food combined with world music. Quite literally!
