Whenever we visit family in Barendrecht we'll enjoy a meal at Diggels. Wooden tables, low lights and lively atmosphere, surround generous, straight forward and well prepared- and presented dishes. A very comfortable place to eat with efficient and friendly staff. We will be back.

Real good pancakes can be tasted at this typical Dutch restaurant in a very typical Dutch setting at the banks of the Oude Maas. Large variety of pancakes, from sweet, to spicy, from desert type to real full blast main dish. Suitable for larger groups and look for the specials on specific days.

Prachtig plekje in het groen aan een recreatieplas. Het is hier in de zomer goed toeven, vast en zeker. Op deze winderige dag was het binnen voor de lunch ook prima verblijven. Een mooie geitenkaassalade en prima gebakken mosselen, met een vleugje kerrie...erg lekker met huisgemaakte remouladesaus.

Had dinner here with friends. 2 star restaurant. The food was excellent, although there was not one dish that really stood out, something we will remember a year from now.
What was disappointing was the service. I do not mind casual style, but this was often beyond casual, more indifferent.
Food was not well explained, order of (great) cheeses not explained, and twice food was served while some of us where in the bathroom.
If they level the staff with the kitchen crew, it would really merit the 2 stars

Compared to the numerous restaurants in the neighbourhood, this one is fully booked. Our spirits rose as we entered the restaurant and saw the rest of our group nicely settled in and enjoying their wines.
This was the best part of our experience that evening. We had to constantly call for service. The first course came 1.5 hours after we arrived. The food was disappointing and the two serving sizes were miniscule and tasteless (I ordered fish and fish). At the end of the meal, the waiter brought two one person servings of fries and salad to be shared among the ten of us!! Same on you, Kwiezien! Only the dessert managed to saved the day.
I will not return.

If you're a fish lover and enjoy dining out in beautiful surroundings, add this restaurant to your list of must-go when visiting Rotterdam.
We had the pleasure of dining here last night for a celebratory dinner. We live in the area and pass the restaurant daily when out walking the dogs. Last night we were delighted to be on the inside looking out at the occasional passerby.
The food was really truly delicious with every course and each mouthful giving a different flavor. The wine choice was excellent. The service was also excellent as one would expect in a top notch restaurant.
We enjoyed every moment and at the moment of receiving the bill we found it to be very good value for money. Really not too expensive for what you get.
You will need to reserve a table.

Who'd expect this in Barendrecht at the end of a 'promenade' of bars and restaurants? Let's begin with the environment: nice terace overviewing the water surrounded with modern houses. Calming. Then the people: relaxed, focussed on you enjoying the experience. Not havig chosen anything yet after having the menu with us for half an hour, we asked 'could you just serve some oysters while we choose?' In the middle of the table? No problem. 'We have two varieties available'. A mix of both to taste the difference? No problem. I choose a second dish as starter: no problem. We'll have that grappa (out of an excellent choice of 3). But could we just have a few drops of that other one to compare? Sure, (followed by some explanation of the difference. The lady happened to have made a study on grappas...)
And the, the food of course. I'll hardly ever have steak in a restaurant. I'll do that at home, and they never serve it sufficiently bleu. Here, the had drymatured meat (I'm not sure of the translation here). So I went for the steak, 'as bleu as the chef dares'. Great! Not to mention the first dish: a simple but highly rewarding coquilles (scallop) with a brandade of grey shrimp. I was tempted to order another serving...
So why not 5 stars. The menu offers almost exclusively traditionals (sometimes with a twist). So little excitement there.

The lunch menu is very diverse (lots of choice for vegetarians). The coffee tastes great and they have freshly squeezed orange juice. The staff is very friendly and nothing seems too much trouble.

Food was about oke. Nothing spectaculair, but you wont be disapppointed.
Ambiance was good, though there is so much noise inside we had to shout to the other side of the table to have a conversation. Keep in mind, we where with just with a company of 2.
Maybe go again if nothing else availble, but the place is to loud for me at present age (45-ish).
Having to crawl out of the place through pissed up youngsters is not ideal to realy.
Acceptable food, ambiance to noisy to have a comfortable evening.

Since traveling to my favorite holiday destination (Lisbon, Portugal) isn't something we can do on monthly basis, we decided to check out the Saboroso restaurant in Barendrecht. Being spoiled with all the culinary greatness Lisbon has to offer, we knew it would be very hard to please us. Well, Saboroso certainly did not disappoint us. On the contrary!
Ok, the harbour in Barendrecht is not as beautiful as Praca do Commercio. But the location is quite good. A lovely, not too busy square near the harbour offers a nice view and that already brings you in the mood for a cozy evening. A perfect spot to order a bottle of vino verde and just enjoy the view.
The menu offered classic Portuguese dishes. Like ameijoa or pasteis de bacalhau as a starter.Or bacalhau a bras or grilled octopus as a main dish. And yes, very tender and crispy charcoal grilled chicken which was really perfect. The menu does not have too much choice, but there is plenty enough to choose from. Definitely quality over quantity here. Prices are also somewhat above average (check the website for the menu & prices) but then again, it's value for money.
All in all it was a wonderful evening. great service by the owner (from Lisbon, actually) and his wife. The wine recommendation was excellent and went along fine with the dishes we'd chosen.
