Nice restaurant, in the "epicenter" of Rotterdam top-restaurant (Francois Geurds, Mario Ridder, others) at stone-through distance. We opted for the 6-course dinner, very nice but portions could be slightly smaller to credibly make it to the end of the dinner. Wines were surprising and not all of them equally well received, with the exception of the Spanish tempranillo with the... More

This is a spectacular restaurant, which I greatly recommend. Chef and staff are young and enthusiastic. The food is very innovative and intelligently created, and the staff is very friendly. The wine pairings are also very intelligent. You would normally need to spend a fortune for a dining experience like this. Instead, this restaurant is reasonably priced. This is worth... More

I really liked the food they served at De Jong restaurant, it was creative. They only serve a surprise menu, which ensures you get something experimental you wouldnt usually choose in the first place. I was pleasantly surprised by the "flower ice cream" they served for desert. Service was very friendly and knowledgeable, but between meals waitingtimes were too long.... More

Was never really a fan of veggies until my visit. OMG! The dishes were amaaaaazing! And the staff was just so pleasant and helpful. The dessert was surprisingly good and every dish kept us excited and interested! Will definitely visit again!

The decision to only serve nature wines is a really bad choice. They wine production style dominates in general and also dominates the subtle dishes. It's hit and miss. The night we dined the service was horrible. It took 30 minutes after our first drink before someone finally came to take down our order. The waiting time between each dish... More

Rotterdam is full of good restaurants, but Restaurant De Jong is unique! Do yourself a favor an go! Better to call for reservation. They cook/prepare everything fresh, so be prepared to a 2 hrs meal, which is okay if you have someone to talk and wine ;)

I went with three friends and we had a wonderful meal together. We were two vegetarians and two meat eaters. In my opinion the veg. menul was nicer than the meat/fish menu, which I think is a great thing. Service was wonderful, not rushed but we were not waiting too long either. I am looking forward to go again!

Innovative, delicious dishes. Excellent taste of extreme quality ingredients. Absolute surprising combinations of flavors that we would never have thought of. Surprisingly well to accommodate for food allergies as well.

Only surprises -in a good way- in this off the beaten track restaurant. Started off with an exciting vermouth drink. Chose the vegetables surprise menu (meat/fish combo also an option) with accompanying wines (half's an option). The look and taste of the dishes were simply marvelous 😋😃 Compliments to the chef and his companions in the (open) kitchen / hosting!
