Had a lovely lunch here with friends when visiting after Christmas. Appreciated the variety on the menu (something for everyone), except they had sold out of something that was a "first choice", but we were very happy with the other items ordered.

Nice and relaxed. We were here for the International Film Festival Rotterdam. After the movie we had a nice dinner. Friendly staff, despite the fact that it was very busy. Definitely coming back soon.

Very promising, ood place for movie and have a simple dinner before. Nice atmosphere, but .... Since we didn't want to watch a movie, and only wanted to have dinner it seemed others were prioritised and the suggested waiting time of half an hour even went up to more than one hour. And then we left and had a lovely... More

If you like non-mainstream movies in a unique relaxed atmosphere, then you need to try the LantarenVenster place. You can eat before (or after) the movies at the Cafe, or just chill out at the bar listening to the music.

This is an interesting location by the docks that serves a dual purpose as a cinema for some of the material that is rarely accessed by multiplexes and as an eating area with drinks. The place is reasonably accessible for mobility impaired folk but some of the ramps are a bit steep and the toilets are quite a long trek.... More

One of our favorite spots in Rotterdam. Quality movies are being shown here, you can hang out and have a drink or a meal, meet friends in a relaxed atmosphere. Also great for concerts, mostly jazz but also the occasional blues or other styles. We come here on a regular basis, as locals. In my opinion, this is the only... More
