My cousin and I were staying at Mainport Hotel Rotterdam. One of the best hotels Ive seen in a while. After enjoying our breakfast and view for 3 hours we had to check out and decided to go for lunch because it was already 12:30 and I mean why the hell not. Next to mainport, you have Inntel hotel. Inside you can find a cute little restaurant with a view of the water/river outside, probably one of the main reasons why the restaurant is given that name.
Prices start at around € 8 euros but can go up to € 20 depending on what you get. They even had the typical dutch dish called “Kapsalon” on their menu. This is pretty unique because I have never seen this dish on a menu in a brasserie, usually just in snackbars or cafe’s. The rest of the menu was pretty basic but had a lot of variety. They have something for everyone.
I got the club sandwhich and my cousin got the penne pasta. Both were very good (especially the pasta) the only dislike I had was that my club sandw
hich didnt have fries or chips on the side. It is not mandatory but I dont know the sandwich any other way.
We had to wait a while for our food so we ended up getting free drinks. So nice and attentive.
Vibe: What I really enjoyed about this restaurant was how peaceful it is. It is on a corner of a very busy road at the Erasmus bridge but that does not bother you at all. And the view you get with that is not too bad either. If you sit on the other side of the restaurant youll get a view of the water/river. The waiters are very nice. They dont bother you too much.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars. I like the chill concept and the name of the restaurant. Definitly worth a try to check out that view and have some lunch!
