Mouthwatering chicken dishes and beer on a sunny day on the outdoor space was an amazing experience. Nice and helpful lady staff.

The food is generally centred around chicken, which is of decent quality and overall well prepared. Service could be a little bit more attentive though. Average value for money.

We visited this restaurant for a spot of lunch, we had half chicken rotisserie with chips and salad (tasty and filling) washed down with a selection of beers. For dessert I tried the butter cake and ice cream (not good) very sweet and stodgy. You...More

Scharrels en Schuim is a cozy and nice place with a large terrace on one of Rotterdam's most popular streets. We went there also because it's open until quite late and it was one of the few places you could book a table for as...More

Fellow business traveler: we have all been here. Road trip took 50% longer than expected. You arrive tired, hungry and in a bad mood due to the traffic. You know what you want: food you recognize; beer-a-plenty; leave full, happy, and slightly impaired. Check, check,...More

Good place for a drink and food. Good menu. The chicken is the specialty here. Friendly, fast service and delicious food. A short walk from the Holiday Inn Express. Mingled amongst many restarurants, with seating indoors and outdoors.

Yummy chicken but a bit greasy. Good chips. Service always slow but always busy. Maybe would go back.

If you want chicken, this is the place you’re loooking for. It has indoor and outdoor seating space and it’s an excellent choice for lunch on a sunny afternoon. We were a group of friends and ordered chicken burgers, chicken salads and pulled chicken sandwiches...More

Most of the dishes are chicken based. I can’t say this place would be convenient for a vegetarian.

Nothing smells as good, nothing tastes as good. There's nothing quite like a tender roast chicken. In the afternoon, evening and at night - grilled chicken always tastes good. We're all about top quality grilled chicken. We can roast forty chickens simultaneously on our cool rotisserie, the largest in the Netherlands. And we have more on the Scharrels & Schuim menu: chicken soup, wrap filled with grilled chicken thighs and barbecue sauce, a serving of chicken nuggets, various sizes Caesar salad. And chicken salon, the counterpart of the Rotterdam 'kapsalon'. One particular eye-catcher is the antique scale. The terrace features large picknick tables, ideal to enjoy a meal, beer and the weather. Spread over two floors, Scharrels & Schuim has a seating capacity of one hundred guests. Ten specialty beers are available on tap including Grimbergen and Peroni, triple the pleasure per bottle. The best gin tonics in Rotterdam are served on the top floor.
