This restaurant is housed in the Wereldmuseum in beautiful period rooms. The tables are well spaced apart giving a very upmarket ambience. The menu is provided in English and there is both an à la carte and set menu. We chose to have a main course only but were provided with several amuse bouche before it arrived. The wine list...

This museum defines what a boutique museum experience should be. Great art in a gorgeous building, views, a charming outdoor waterside café AND the most amazing restaurant that knocks your socks off. If only all museums "got it" the way the Wereld does. It's a jewel for the city of Rotterdam.

We have eaten at this restaurant a number of times over the past few years and have always been very happy with the service, quality of food, interest and diversity on the menu, choice of wines and general ambience. One complaint this time, albeit minor: we sat in a row of diners with very little room between the tables, which... More

We visited the restaurant on July 25, 2014. Ordered the 5-course menu. Food was good...maybe even great, but not outstanding. This is often the case with restaurants offering a set menu and fine dining...sometimes you hit things that appeal to you, sometimes not. The service was outstanding...really flawless. Among the best I have ever had. The wine list was wonderful:... More

I tried it for lunch and was disappointed. The staff is very nice, but the choice of food very limited. They do not really live up to what they pretend to be.

Very nice environment, right at the border of the river. Had a wereldburger, which was one of the best burgers I ever tasted!

I was part of a group that had a private visit of the museum (Fantastic and worth visiting), followed by dinner in the restaurant on the top floor. The room and view are amazing. The staff were friendly, however the food on offer was very poor. This may have been the result of what was ordered on our behalf (as... More

This was superb. First time I managed to get table for dinner, since its hard to get, I was completely surprised by service and food. Everything was as per highest standards. Not a cheap place but definitely enjoyable. If to go there, dressing up needed. Very elegant and nice place. With amazing wine list and very nice food. When I... More

You can order from the a la carte menu or go for the 5 course chef's menu for dinner. As other reviews have noted a great deal of care is taken over presentation and, unlike in some upmarket restaurants, the portions are good: I was suitably impressed by my main course of sea bass. The service is attentive, as you... More
