Regular for take-out here. It's mostly vegetarian and very flavored. Moderately priced but decent choice and advice. It's a gem in this street.

The interior has a nice concept which was not executed and delivered to its full and correct potential. The space subdivision and decoration are not really coherent from a design point of view, so you are not sure whether you stepped into a hipster café, an italian restaurant, a spanish shop or a portuguese deli. Nevertheless, it is a spacious... More

Food was amazing, staff was very friendly. You can order several different small dishes that you can shade with your company. We were with 4 people so we ordered half the menu. All dishes were super tasty! I will surely visit this place againn

Good but rather over priced. Personnel is great, wine list is usually super. Terrace option is a tad noisy as it is in middle of traffic and sidewalk back' forth to shops. Easy to walk from city center, even easier with tram 4.

Good no-nonsense food place with a very pure kitchen cooking stilo. Menu changes every 3 months or so and keeps the place interesting to go back. Not a real restaurant in the sense of romanticism but certainly value for the buck and good for biz or friend diners. Perfect choice between vegetables, fish and small meat dishes. Wines are excellent... More

We went here to dinner on a friday night, it's a trattoria so there's a store-part and a restaurant-part. The atmosphere is really good, the place looks nice, cosy tables with a cute little flower piece. Our food and wine was really good, was fresh, tasted great.. Too bad the staff was a little unprofessional, they served our main before... More

We visited Westerkaatje for lunch after reading about it in a local newspaper. It is in the North of Rotterdam in quite an exotic neighbourhood. Nice area for a walk-about. Much more colourful and interesting than the city centre. There are some nice coffeebars and foodplaces in this area. Westerkaatje is one of them: It is different and authentic. Very... More

I live in Noord and there are not so many places around the have a light lunch or a coffee with cake. When my dad came to visit we decided to try it out for Lunch. The menu is not very extensive and there are many vegetarian options, so if you are a meat lover this is maybe not the... More

We just arrived in Rotterdam after a long flight. We were hungry and had time before we could check into our apartment. We stumbled upon Westerkaatje - what a pleasant surprise! The interior decor was simple, yet modern and inviting. Talk about less is more! Our waiter was most helpful with translating the Dutch menu. We decided to go with... More

Very nice interior and cozy atmosphere. The food is predominately French lunch/brunch material. Very good deserts. Proper food albeit rather steep prices.

Thank Whekau
