This is a restaurant serving excellent high quality food in a nice setting with good views over oude haven. However my one comment would be that the meals are rather pricey but the steak i had was excellently cooked!

I come to Kaat Mossel on occasion and this time we had a table on the street. It was a pity that when we wanted to order a selection of oysters as a starter, the waitress informed us they were sold out except for some special French oysters that were relatively expensive, but, when they were served, were they tasty!...

very good experience, food is very tasty, service is also nice, but price is almost the same level as Michelin one star. Three persons cost nearly 150 euro.

It was very busy when we went but friendly. The staff are happy to help explain each course. If in Rotterdam it's a must place to try

This bar/restaurant is perfect for those who love to have food and stay out afterwards. We were welcomed in as soon as we came through the door, we sat down and instantly had someone waiting for us for our drink orders. Which we like. The food did not take too long to come at all and it was absolutely delicious.... More

Kaat Mossel was recommended by the concierge at our hotel and it was well worth the walk. A wide choice of fish dishes on the menu and a nice atmosphere. The waiter told us the history of Kaat Mossel a famous lady in the history of Rotterdam, and a nice area by the side of one of the large canals... More

I have been in this restaurant on a nice August evening so I had dinner outside. The place was charming, waiters are old style but nice, food is great. If you really like fresh fish cooked in the right way, this is the place! My girlfriend had a well cooked tuna steak, I had a huge mussels pot with three... More

Great place to visit with nice cosy atmosphere, friendly service and great food. Do go here if you are a seafood lover. The mussels are great in all variaties. You can't make a wrong choice! Enjoyed our dinner here and all food was perfect from starter until coffee after desert. Great Rotterdam experience!
