One of the best places in Rotterdam for Tapas! Always busy but always a chill atmosphere. Great Gin & Tonic drinks too!

We visited Destino again after some time since our last visit. And we were slightly disappointed. Although the food is still nice, the prices seem to have gone up significantly. Our past experience with there wines were great but no so much on this visit. The white blend in the wine list was very uninspiring given the price. Some classics... More

Excelent tapas selection with Good quality products in a nice location. In my opinion there is still margin yo improve and quotes may be still a bit high. Keep up the good work.

We had dinner last night at Destino. I have had the pleasure of dining at some of the top-rated Michelin 3 star restaurants but the food/price/delishness of Destino was truly unbelievable!!! We shared 5 tapas for the 3 of us which were creatively presented and absolutely delicious. The eggplant fritters and the dessert-warm chocolate cup-cake-were a great topper to a... More

I've been here twice, and both times enjoyed it. Good tapas, interesting menu including most of the classic pinchos you'd expect to find. Stand out were some sardines and of course the Spanish omelette! Good atmosphere on the weekend, and good selection of drinks for the bar including some local gins. Efficient service, but not cheap. Enjoy!

My wife and myself went to Destino and we had a delicious diner (we had rice-fish balls fried in bread crumbs, croquette, and of course Iberico ham). All so the wine was good, and we could sit outside, which helped with the atmosphere of the evening. Also the personnel was friendly and new exactly when you needed attention and when... More

We go regularly to Destino. Our favorite place to eat good tapas. Fresh and good products in a relaxed environment. Not the prefab and heated stuff you get elsewhere. Nice wines and gins. Friendly staff. Not being able to reserve might be a turn off, but if you take this into account in advance and take some wine and pinchos... More

Had dinner last Friday with a friend. As usual the place is busy, we got a table within a couple minutes. Great choice of house wines which they serve by glass, water free of charge, bread and very good olive oil to dip! The kitchen is extremely small and every time amazed how they manage to make so many dishes.... More
