About the restaurant Restaurant Meatcave

Dining in a unique setting

A little exciting it is, to dine in a basement that looks like a cave. You don’t know what you get to eat, the menu is a big surprise. Robert Lobensteijn is the chef and Big Green Egg expert, tonight this grill master is your best friend. The drinks are original and totally not what you're used to. Go for adventure and discover the good side of life.

What a very good restaurent with high quality food.
As we had 1 person allergic for some ingredients, they made a special meal for this person. Really a good service on the day itself, knowing that we didn't inform the restaurent upfront of our day.
Looking forward to visit this restaurent again !

Restaurant has a very good concept, always full and if you want to eat here don't forget to book table few days, sometimes week, upfront. Meat was delicious and soft, nice wine pairing.

Very good quality food in a nice and quiet environment. I like the Green Egg concept and the way of cooking. I recommend Meatcave Rotterdam for a relaxing and tasty dinner.

It was a really nice experience. The kitchen staff and waitresses did a great job. They know how to prepare food and present it to the customers. It's not a real fine dining, but you can be sure to get very satisfying dishes. There is cosy atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

The Meatcave, found via Internet, newsletter Esquire. Looked at the reviews on IENS and decided this was the restaurant for family dinner. Made easy reservations via FORK-app. Welcome was impressive, a 2 mtr tall Viking-waiter said hello and took our coats. After being seated a nice amuse arrived at the table. Then a new waiter came to explain the concept....no menu, option is to choose the number of courses, 3,4 or 5..... The food is amazing, high quality meat, with additional explanation from the waiter. We have had an enjoyable evening and very good dinner.

Good food; steak was excellent.
Can benefit by serving bread in between courses or just have some bread / butter on the table.
Friendly staff and good service.
Excellent wine list.

Everything was excellent! We were all very satisfied.


The uruguayan steak was one of the best steaks I've had in years (and I'm Argentinian).


Please keep the quality and prices as they are, it is perfect.


We still miss you in Leiden :-(


Cheers,


Roman (&Robin, Michiel and Hans)

Excellent eating experience! Nice ambiance! Menu is perfect! Meal was served hot and flavorful.The meats are the star dishes and were always perfectly cook well seasoned! juicy! nicely rested! and very tender. We had around 7 courses with wine paring, each courses were presented, plated, garnishes beautifully! Chef Luca and Chef Robert nailed it perfectly. In addition to a nice dinner, we had a delightful sommelier JILL. She has the perfect balance of friendliness and efficiency and made sure we had the perfect evening.

Yesterday was out first time at the Meatcave! The host was very friendly and helpful and he and the chef were very easy to talk to. We had an allergy, but they managed to work with it so we could both enjoy the meals.
All meals were meat-centered (as expected), but after a 4-course dinner, we were happy and content.
They use various really well-cooked meats and all meats are soft and nicely seasoned without too much else going on. We will certainly return there!! So nice!
