We enjoyed this restaurant very much. We wanted a neighbourhood place and this fit the bill. It was a bit hard to find, but worth the search. The waitress was wonderful and helped us order. The soup tasted just like my Mom's! We lingered over a cognac and did not feel pressured to leave. Loved it.

Eetcafé Vader Jacob is tucked away in a tired shopping center in a north Rotterdam suburb; the restaurant offers a casual atmosphere. But boy, they can cook. And they offer a three course a la carte menu for an incredibly low price (for Dutch price levels). High quality ingredients are used; my starter, carpaccio, was delicious (luckily the chef goes...

We were looking for an authentic Dutch restaurant and found it. Good food, good prices and exceptionally friendly staff. We relaxed, ate well and enjoyed the walk back to our hotel.

On this location the restaurant "Eeterij Vader Jacob" was established until this restaurant closed very suddenly in January 2013. This sudden closure made me sad, because "Eeterij Vader Jacob" was one of my favorite restaurants, despite the fact that it was situated in a tired '60's shopping center in a Rotterdam residential area. When I received information from a friend,... More

Despite its location (in a street with some very tired shops) it is truly a gem. My husband and I both choose the fixed priced menu, for each course there is a large variety to choose from, toasted bread and butter come on the side.They also surprised us with a delicious "amuse", this time a small glass of onion soup.It...

Last year I bought a Groupon voucher for two persons for the "Eeterij Vader Jacob". Groupon vouchers are a perfect way to test unknown restaurants for a limited outlay. The GPS brought us to a tired local shopping center, built in the sixties of last century. The advantage of the restaurant being in a local shopping center is of course... More

Don't be mistaken by the first appearance of the restaurant, the food and service is excellent. We used a Groupon to try this restaurant and we can recommend it. The service is excellent, the waiters really want you to be satisfied.

Description
This restaurant serves well cooked food for a reasonable price; the service is attentive and polite. (Really better than the average service in Dutch restaurants). As this restaurant is located in an unobtrusive shopping mall in a Rotterdam suburb, I would like to draw the attention of my fellow travelers to it. If you looking for a posh luxury restaurant, do not go there, but if you are looking for an excellent cooked meal for a reasonable price, this place is a gem.
