In 2002 Dudok won the price of best coffee in Holland. So if you like a good cup of coffee, pay a visit to Dudok. Be sure you take a piece of applepie as well, because it is delicious. You can take your breakfast, lunch or dinner as well here. The only bad thing is that it can take quite a while to be served because of its popularity. But your patience will be awarded for granted.
A very plain-looking restaurant just in front of ABN-AMRO bank, but it's run by real Italians and as said: the tomato soup is heavenly!
Favorite Dish: Crema di Pomodori (tomato soup)... smooth, velvety, garlicky... big bowl with a basket of fresh bread and garlic butter. A cheap and perfect lunch which I have eaten regularly between work hours over the last 6 years.
If you are looking for some great Dutch food in downtown Rotterdam, I think this place is a must! If nothing else, the service there is the best I've seen since the employees are very friendly. They serve great pancakes, but of course some delicious sandwhiches too.
Pizzeria Ristorante Colosseo
Cheap prices but good food. Not luxury or clinical hygeine, but I don't care!
Favorite Dish: Macaroni Carbonara
