Situated on the Schiedamse Vest, a restaurant-infused side street of the Witte de Withstraat, you will find The Walk’Ín Fish. As soon as you walk in, you know you are in for something special. The interior is eclectic in a very relaxing way and the staff are always welcoming.
As the only restaurant in Rotterdam which is allowed to serve Roca i Amat cava, usually a lovely vintage, it would be a shame to miss the opportunity to start the evening with a glass. Having popcorn to nibble on when deciding on what to tantalise your palate with just adds to the fun. The restaurant is – as the name suggests- very fish-oriented, however vegetarian and meat options are available. The tuna tartar with chimichurri is hard to beat, the bouillabaisse instantly transports you to Marseille, the ceviche with passionfruit is a party in your mouth and these are just the starters! If you are an oyster lover, you are in luck — I highly recommend the Umami Moscow Mule.
The mains are of equal exhilaration; the seabass with Middle Eastern flavours and the Asian inspired sole is mouth-watering. The lobster variations are a treat; trust the non-standard combinations, they’re pure foodgasms. The surprise menu has brought gems which I hope to see again. My go-to dessert is the date cake with pumpkin and chestnut as excellence is hard to beat, but the chocolate cherry dessert is a dream as well. Just walk in!
