Located at the side of a big lake this is a place you should visit in summer. Nice lounge areas outside. In winter the restaurant is an okay location. Crouded during weekend but doable the rest of the week. The menu is simple but tastefull.

Such a great place to end a long walk in the Kralingse Forest. Stuck between two windmills, this old house harbors a grand cafe. Typical Dutch fare like kroketten en bitterballen, but also nice salads and a great burger. The views on the Kralingse Plas are amazing from every corner in the house.

I would like to clarify that I was here only for coffee time with my friend, so my review is not presenting the cuisine at all. But from my experience, I had a nice view (you have to be in a nice weather too, a warm day is recommended to go here), and an ok coffee. The service was kinda... More

located in a fancy (green) neighbourhood, directly at the waterfront we expected to overpay and have little choise on the menu. We got the opposite! Especially the starters impressed us very much, the bresoala and the lam were very nice.

The service was so sloooooooow... The weather was unusually warm for September so yes the crowds were out and yes we had a 20 people with us, however we had hoped for more attention. We had only 2 people serving 3 tables of 8 each...resulting in our first drinks after 20mins and the starters after 60mins. The mains took nearly... More

We biked here for a drink. My husband said This place has improved a lot since they changed the owner a few years ago. We sat right next to the lake with the magnificent view at the sunny afternoon. The only downside is If you want a proper meal, you need to move to the dinning table.

Yesterday we visited De Tuin for the first time with friends, while on a family visit in Rotterdam. We sat on the waterfront, the weather was lovely and we had a few drinks and a little snack. A nice experience, the service was attentive and quick and we will be back for a meal for sure some day

I have visited this restaurant scores of times over the years since 2000 a couple of years into the tenure of the current owners/managers - I must declare that they are friends but my review is nonetheless an objective one! The Very Good: The restaurant is located right between the Kralingse Bos (forest) and on the lake. It is an... More
