Everything ordered from drinks to food was of a standard so poor never seen before in Rotterdam. Even the kebab shops at various dodgy street corners performs better!!! First gin tonic ordered... Served without tonic. Then mixed grill ordered served with out any explanation of what the four different kinds of (very dry and boring) meat was. Then the dessert... More

And service was still lousy! Genuinely had long waits to get served and food to be delivered. The staff seemed more content to huddle together at the bar than serve customers. 2 nights I was there, same both times. Both times they did not have the correct change. Food was OK.

Service is very slow; the first twenty minutes we were wondering "are they all on their cigarette break?" because we didn't see any staff at all. Aftering ordering food and... More

The food was absolutely wonderful and the view stunning. The staff wasn't really friendly, but the food made up all of that.

S.S: Rotterdam is a former flagship of the Holland America Line. It is a mixture of museum, hotel, bar. We visited the upper-deck terrace, sat on lounge chairs, had a stunning view of the skyline of Rotterdam. Good bar, friendly staff and occasionally a DJ! You can visit it free and can also have a tour which will cost you... More
