What a wonderful surprise! Friends took me here and I expected basic pub food but it was far from basic. We all had 'the menu' which included several courses of the most delicious food served in sensible portions for lunch. I can't even remember what we all had but it was delicious... Chicken soup, heavenly, and fresh crusty bread with... More

Hemel op aarde (Heaven on earth) is a restaurant where you can order different kinds of tapas and mezzes (small dishes). You can choose between fish, meat and vegetarian dishes and because of the (small) size you can order a lot of them! If you can't make a choice you can let the chef make a choice for you. Also...

We were a group of 7 people. The restaurant was fairly cramped. The service was mostly OK. We went for the set menu tapas with one vegetarian option, but the number of veggie options (for non fish eater) at each course was very limited. Overall a good meal (for meat eaters) and more than enough food!

Despite the friendly/enthousiastic staff, our experience was quite disappointing. Every dish was lacking the effort to make it above average. You just hope some driven cook would join and make this place worth its money. Because the atmosphere deserves it.

Visit this restaurant recently for the first time. It was busy during weekdays. They were a bit under staffed in the restaurant but they react very helpful towards our requests. The food, several tapas, was just ordinary. Nothing fancy. Taste was okay but had not a wow effect on us.

Great food, great service. Good times! It was the perfect meal to end our trip to Amsterdam and it was great they had more than one wine on offer. Everything at heaven on earth is super.

Very nice Tapas Restaurant in Kralingen. Definitely recommendable. Reservation is a must, the restaurant is usually fully booked in the evening which proofs the class of this restaurant. A few seats outside offer the chance to enjoy the food in the sun.

I often have visitors from overseas and this is one of the few restaurants in Rotterdam that I come back to over and over again because I know I can rely on this place for good food, service, and a good experience. Hemel op Aarde takes Mediterranean food (Spanish, Greek, Italian) and serves it tapas style without taking away from... More
