12 Delicious and affordable restaurants in Rotterdam
Who knew that you could eat out 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 €11.50 you already have a delicious falafel burger. The location on the Witte de Withstraat is also ideal of course!
