    Rodin: Free lunch (for me)

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Dec 10, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rodin is a great café-restaurant. For years I get the Rotterdam Tourist Office newsletters by email and to my surprise I was the winner of a price of a campaign that's a part of the newsletter. To my surprise it was a Euro 50 lunch at Rodin, at that moment unknown to me, although I must have passed the restaurant in the past.

    So, at an exceptional warm october Saturday we went to Rotterdam to enjoy the price for one thing. We were warm welcomed and we took a seat at the front window. The staff was really helpful in filling in a special menu. My wife had the day's special lunch with matching wines and I went for a BLT club Sandwich. We finished our visit with a nice piece of cake and drinks.

    I really recommend this restaurant for a lunch and BTW, the dinner menu looks great as well.

    J.J. Bootsma Volendammer Vishandel is a booth shop at the Coolsingel street.

    Raw herring is a Dutch treat you should try once in your life.

    But if you do not fancy this Dutch Sushi, try some of the other seafood that is sold over the counter.

    Mockamore: Coffee, anyone?

    by Rosey-K Written Dec 3, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The interior deco is new and modern, it was rather busy and have to wait for a seat.

    This is a 'SELF-SERVICE' cafe, so you need to order and serve it yourself.

    They have bagels, some sandwiches as well the famous Dudok cakes.

    Favorite Dish: Like the fresh brew coffee.

    A nice break for chilling after a hard day shopping around the centre of Rotterdam.

  • ShabuShabu Sushi Restaurant: Eat All You Can

    by JennDonn Updated Apr 4, 2011

    It is a new Japanese restaurant in the city, at West Blaak. My Romanian friend and I who are crazy about Sushi went to have a dinner after work on Friday evening. The weekend price per person is EUR22.50, varies according to the time and day.

    For the first timers, there was an introduction by a waitress on our table. With the fix price, we can order till 8 round in 2 hours time. Maximum 5 orders per person per round. All from the cold sushi menu, till the grill, baked, cooked or fried.

    Drinks are not included in the price.
    Big eyes, good. But we gave up to go for the fourth round. Almost couldn't finish the food on 3rd round (took 3 orders per person), otherwise we would have to pay for the unfinished food.

    We ended up paying EUR35 per person including drinks and tips.

    Tips for you: Don't drink too much, and don't waste time talking if you want to reach the 8th round for little money.

    Favorite Dish: We tried most from the cold menu, tried some from the grill and they are all lovely.

    Siriporn: Thai food

    by ATLC Written Jul 13, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Enjoyable food at reasonable prices (to our Dutch standards anyway). Most main courses around 16 euro.
    Next to the restaurant is a Thai shop where you can browse to your hearts content!

    Opening hours: Tue-Thur 16.30-22.30 hrs and Fri-Sun 12-22.30 hrs.

    Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the shrimp in green curry, coconut milk, peppers, Thai basil and eggplant. It was spicy and good.
    A little warning: the fish sauce (essentially a fermented fluid) may not be to everybody's taste. It was recognised as authentic. I liked it a lot.

    The crunchy deepfried shrimp, fried beef and fish cakes were also good.
    We spent 55 euro for 2 persons, including drinks. Coffee was on the house.
