The location of this lovely restaurant is excellent, near the most oldest part of Rotterdam with a view of the canal. Although it is out of the way of Rotterdam City center, when visiting Rotterdam one should take the extra mile and experience "old Rotterdam" as well and when convenient eat at a restaurant like Soif. The menu of the restaurant is not big but just big enough to have a choice for everybody. Do not forget to look at the large board in the middle of the restaurant for specials.
The food we ordered was well prepared, nothing fancy, but good. The staff was quite pleasant and they were well up for a joke or 2! We all enjoyed our meals and washed down with decent beer and wine we left happy. Except that the soup of the day tasted more like a mushroom broth than the announced lobster soup.
Address: Mathenesserdijk 438, 3026 Rotterdam.
Directions: Right at the heart of the old and historical Oude Delfshaven.

Attracted here by the canalside location and a barge moored outside, well below road level to sit on. Interesting to watch the road bridge raised several times to allow canal traffic through.
Anyway, the food! splendid hummous salad for Mrs B, freshly made and very tasty - kroketten and old favourite for me plus herself very happy to have a couple of krieks as well.
Enjoyed our visit here very much.

A very nice place, close to the church of the pilgrims of the May Flower in the historical disctrict. Good food, and you can visit their own brewery!
Favorite Dish: The beer... and a smiling angel saying 'Tot zins' at the exit.
Address: Next to the 'pilgrims' church.

Traditional food - if you ask around - doesn't officially exist. This means that it's really hard to find a place that serves it. One exception is the Restaurant Hiernaast: their food is a mix of traditional fare with an innovative touch.
The restaurant is located in an old wooden building in Delfshaven: you can eat outside in the little beergarden, or inside in a dark candle-lit room overlooking the old lock and canal. We chose to stay inside and found it very nice and romantic.
Favorite Dish: Particularly delicious were the desserts - I'm still dreaming of a heavenly Poffertjes, small pancakes topped with sugar, fresh strawberries and plenty of whipped-cream.
Address: Havenstraat 7a
Directions: Delftshaven. The entrance is the middle door at the back of the building.
It's the only one brewery in town, but it's really nice. As it accidentially happend to be a part of guided touristic routes thru the city, but it's a nice stop over to have a glass or two of beer...
Favorite Dish: BEER! ;))
