Who knew that you could have dinner at Nieuw Rotterdams Café? You can go here for drinks, bar bites, lunch and dinner. We were here recently on a press dinner and were certainly positively surprised about it. There was a good atmosphere, the food (and drinks) was really delicious and the service was good. When our eyes fell on the prices on the menu, we were also happy to see that it’s certainly not expensive. For example, for just €12.75 you already have a delicious poké bowl. There are also a lot of vegan options at NRC! The location on the Witte de Withstraat is also ideal of course.
