With Café Restaurant Erasmus, Rotterdam has a new hotspot! Expect grand café classics in a historic building, in the heart of the city centre!

An iconic location on the Coolsingel

There is hardly a more central location than the Coolsingel! This former bank building is an iconic building, where the large windows and chic interior welcome you. You may also know the location from the previous restaurants that were located here, such as La Buvette and drinks bar Floryn.

Owner Aren: “Previously you could only enter through the entrance of the office building above. We have had a beautiful entrance made so that we are more accessible. People now walk in much more easily and we have noticed that in recent weeks. In the last weeks of the year, the finishing touches have been put into place and now we are really going to have a blast.”

A Rotterdams grand café

After a complete renovation, the end result is impressive. The renovated restaurant has the appearance of a grand café. The large windows that let in a lot of light and the use of natural colours and materials provide a serene and accessible appearance. In addition, there is a large reading table, a restaurant area with low seating areas and high bar tables for drinks, suitable for any time of the day.
