    Food and drinks were reasonable for Dutch standards but needed to wait about 1 hr just for sandwiches to be served. I do not think is acceptable.

    food and service good, tables very small, very noisy place, it was raining so everyone had to sit inside, would probably be more pleasant experience if not raining

    Awesome little pub with a gorgeous patio overlooking an inlet from the canal. Beautiful view - very picturesque. Definitely recommended - great neighborhood

    Bien, atención muy esmerada, gente simpática. Comida bastante bien, Nada que decir, simplemente es Paises Bajos, y esto implica vino caro para lo que te sirven, y falta comida fresca. Pero para Paises Bajos, nivel top.

    Lovely restaurant close to the harbour. We sat inside as it was cold and rainy and it was lovely, very dark and cosy. We had some great wine and beers with our deep fried combination platter. A good way to try some of the local cuisine.

    Everything was great. This is one of my fav places to go in Rotterdam for food and/or drink. I will be back for sure. Their beef stew is well worth the time and the money, along with the view

    The Ribeye was delicious and perfectly cooked, service was attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was warm and comfortable for a cold Saturday evening. We will definitely be back!

    Great location, great service, lovely food, inviting ambiance. We did only have the cheese croquettes and the bitterballen, but they were the best I've had (and I've had a LOT). So good in fact that instead of ordering from the varied and inviting menu, we had a second order of them instead! Server was very attentive, responsive and very friendly. Lovely view of the White House (we were sitting outside) and being under the parasols didn't get wet when the rain hit a couple of times. Superb selection of beers, presented in their branded glasses, freshly poured and cold. A fab way to enjoy a Friday evening.

    Lovely experience at Vader Kleinjan last evening. We asked for a table near the water with a great view. The food was good and to compensate for a slight delay in service due to a misunderstanding, they offered to give us a round of free drinks. In conclusion, come to Vader Kleinjan, you will not regret it!

    Dined with six colleagues. Ambiance was great, beautiful wheater, table at the waterside. Service was accurate in the beginning, later for coffee we needed to search the staff inside. Food was dissapointing, more on a snackbar level than a restaurant level. Very very salty chicken saté with cheapass salad (iceberg! snackbar!). Some had an average hamburger, nothing special. One of my colleague took the vegetarian special of the day: sponach lasagne with 3 cheeses. It arrived in a breakfast bowl looking like a burnt brick, with black sides, and nothing else on the plate. When I said it looked burnt the waitress took it back to the kitchen and it came back the same, this time with some ice berg lettuce, cherry tomatoes and some grated cheese on top. According to the chef it only looked burnt, she said, "caused by the bechamel sauce". What a complete nonsense, as a chef I know better. Cut it short: great ambiance, snackbar food, bad price-quality ratio. ps: the zeebaars looked good and tasted good, which helped make it a 6.
