Kite is a very unique Afghan restaurant where you can either go for shared dining (always a good idea) or order a surprise menu. They serve traditional Afghan dishes with their own modern twist. Vegetarian options are available. Next to the amazing food, Kite also offers tasty, refreshing cocktails that are super pretty (see photo above!).
If you’re walking past this restaurant on the Westblaak, you’re eyes will immediately be attracted to the gorgeous interior. Pink suede chairs, marble tables, the black and white tiled floor… It all just fits perfectly together and make for a good Instagram shot.

2. The Markthal
The Markthal is an impressive and iconic building in Rotterdam. Whether you are a tourist or a local, every time you’re here there’s so much to see and taste. The ceiling and walls on the inside are covered with products you can buy at a market, like fruits, veggies and flowers. Thanks to the glass windows in the front and back, you have a great view of the pencil building and cube houses. Be creative and find some great angles to make amazing shots!

We love Lilith! Lilith looks like the hidden gem of the city, however it is fortunately not so hidden anymore! The interior has a special vibe due to the dark colors and the aesthetic of the food is also very photogenic as well. With their delicious pancakes and specials it’s a popular spot to have breakfast or lunch and shoot some great Insta pics.

You can dine like a real filmstar at Wes Eettentje. WES is a very Instagrammable place, and how couldn’t it be? This hotspot is named after director Wes Anderson and that is reflected in their interior. From The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Royal Tennebaums to The Darjeeling Limited, you can make cinematic photos everywhere in this place. Oh, and their Jewish-Persian dishes are superb too.

There are a lot of cool wall paintings in Rotterdam that can function as the perfect subject or background of your photo. Our favourites are in the neighbourhood around the Witte de Withstraat.

Everything about Gracy’s is Instagrammable. Both the food and the interior! Because of the cool pink walls and American Diner vibes that the restaurant has, it seems like you are going back in time to the 1950s.
