Once again we migrated to Rotterdam for our annual Stocexpo exhibition and as always we always go to the Sijf for dinner. The food is typical Dutch. The service is brilliant and the staff are always accommodating. I will recommend a visit to this establishment to anyone. 5 star rating from me.

There seem to be plenty of good eateries near my hotel but this is my favourite. Good food and drink at reasonable prices. Friendly staff.

The food, staff and atmosphere is always good. This is an excellent place to have dinner if you prefer meat. The pulled pork is my personal favourite.

It is now already some time ago, but I decided to share my experience anyway. I have been here many times for a beer. Although the service can vary depending on who is helping you, the atmosphere is pleasant and cosy. Until that day that we decided to have dinner there. I have a food allergy and therefore have a...

Simply the best. Sijf has a charm and warmth that welcomes you whether you sit outside or venture in. The staff are amongst the best in the trade and make every visit special. There is a phenomenal range of local and international beers to choose from - each one served in it's own makers glass (presented carefully with the name... More

This has been one of my worst eating experiences in Holland. We have been presented with two vegetarian hamburgers served with very old and dry bread, which we essentially left almost completely on the plate. We made this very clear when the waiter came to ask how the food was, his reaction was a simple smile and went away with... More

Walked in from a bitterly cold walk around the streets to a beautifully warm welcome. Old school bar, excellent staff and jazz hanging in the air. For those that know the Old Duke in Bristol.... just think the same, dialled back and without the bands!!

Busy bar in the evening when we went. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The inside of the bar is really characterful. This place is well worth a visit.

I am from Rotterdam and been living in the UK for over 10 years now and whenever I'm back in Rotterdam my wife and I make sure we catch up with old friends at Sijf. It is very central, so ideal to finish a day of shopping or sight seeing in the City Centre. Upstairs they serve nice pub-style food.... More
