Nice restaurant with normal quality, but what makes the place special are the garlic dishes... everything is garlic-based here.

This place is so good! Small and family run. I've met the mother and father and two of the daughters. The food is delicious. Garlic is sweet not bitter. The flavored are so complex. My leg of lamb had rosemary and garlic and was so good. My wife had the halibut. It melted in her mouth. You have to try... More

Yes every dish has garlic in it! At the end of the dinner, I thought I would be sick of the garlic but I didn't. All the dishes and garlic was cooked and seasoned nicely, matching with each dish. It was very unique and would like to try it again. (Leuk thema en goed gegeten)

We were here on Saturday night with my niece, her partner, my husband and my daughter. We had a lovely meal and all of us loved the food...the lamb shank was just delicious. 10 out of 10 for food, ambiance and staff. We will definitely return the next time we are in Rotterdam.

Saw this restaurant in a guide book and LOVE garlic so thought we would give it a go on our long weekend away. As we wanted to eat on a Saturday night we did book a table and was probably a wise move. The atmosphere, service and food were all great. Whole baked Garlic and Garlic soup to start, we... More

Apart from a very nice, intimate space, they do a great job with garlic. The look menu is a great deal with three ample sized portions. Garlic soup, chicken and then dessert including garlic ice cream. Easily the best garlicky dishes I've had, but if it's not your thing... Kind of a no brainier to come here or stay away,... More

The name Look is derived from KnofLook, which means garlic in Dutch. The dishes are inspired by garlic (although many non-garlic alternatives are available), which is not only delicious but good for the heart! They also have a very affordable set menu with various choices. Even the dessert, garlic flavored ice cream is a must-try! Furthermore, the atmosphere is very... More

This evening was the fourth time I came to this restaurant. I try to come here every time I visit Rotterdam... What can I say? I love garlic so I love this place. It is a level up from a garlic restaurant in Amsterdam (certainly not a bad one but this one is just better). I you're looking to get... More

Alles staat in het teken van de knoflook. Het sublieme is wel het knoflookijs; een zachte mousse met een verrassend subtiele smaak. Het restaurant bestaat nu al meer dan 10 jaar en is een vermelding/ beoordeling zeker waard.
