We found this place while going around town. We thought we had the food we wanted so we went inside. It was a bit crowded but we ignored it. But we waited for sooo long for our order. When my husband complained, the waitress said our food was almost done and when he checked it, it's not even close to... More

We had lunch here during our visit to Rotterdam in July and it was a pleasant experience. Friendly and quick service, good food and a nice wine. Recommendable for a quick bite to eat....centrally located

Nice place for lunch, very good salads and big big plate goes as a main course. In busy days very well occupayed. Service is VERY slow. You have to wait for 40-45 min to get your meal. Good news they bring drinks very promply so you can enjoy your talk with your friends.

The atmosphere in Raoul is sophisticated. Service was very good. However the food wasn't that great and it is overpriced. I ordered a baguette basket and I was disappointed because it wasn't fresh nor warm.

This place is located just outside De Bijenkorf departmental store and is a good place to watch Rotterdam go by (it has a wide range of external as well as internal seating). I suspect that it is OK to get a drink (service for these seemed OK) but it took more than 30 minutes for a Dame Blanche ice cream... More

Ambience is nice but the food is really bland and tasteless kind of like hospital food. My friends different choices were badly executed (literally!) as well. Too bad as its a good location and interior design.

We asked for soup and main course, they brought soup for both of us and the main course for my wife only. We reminded them about my main course. After we finished our soup, the waitress came to collect the dishes and when we asked for my food again she responded very aggressively they need time to make it!!

Quality food combined with friendly efficient service. Very nicely presented snacks combined with a strong cup of coffee. What more can your heart desire?

In a sunny cold day of November I decided to seat at the outside terrace of this cafe and enjoy a quick lunch and the sun. What a wrong choice. After many tries I got the attention of the waitresses and order a Club Sandwich and a beer. The beer came fairly fast, but for the sandwich I had to... More
