Dinner with my lady after a road trip to France and back. Time for something different so thought we would try Lokanta. Off the beaten track a little in Rotterdam but worth finding. Park and walk in to the neighbourhood or take the tram. Cosy/gezellig atmosphere. Friendly staff. Wonderful tapas selection - we ordered a variety of hot taps and... More

Definitily my favourite Spanish restaurant in town. Delicious tapas and friendly people. They serve traditional spanish tapas but the cook also likes to use his own imagination. This makes a mix of original and traditional food in a very cosy atmosphere!

Our best meal yet in Rotterdam. This little Tapas restaurant in a quiet residential neighborhood is within walking distance to the new Mrkt Hal near the Blaak railway station. Must haves are the figs, potatoes. and portobello mushroom. The staff was very accommodating in making both a meat eater and vegetarian very happy. Prices are very reasonable and the food... More
