First thing I'm wondering is, how on earth did they get 4,5 stars? Friends/Family? Because this place is awful. Small menu, over priced 'tapas', nothing what you expect from a real tapas restaurant. Not even close. (Chubby) Waitress is busy with everything exept for the customers. Waited a very lonv time till she took our order. The open kitchen; 2... More

One of the best places in Rotterdam for Tapas! Always busy but always a chill atmosphere. Great Gin & Tonic drinks too!

We visited Destino again after some time since our last visit. And we were slightly disappointed. Although the food is still nice, the prices seem to have gone up significantly. Our past experience with there wines were great but no so much on this visit. The white blend in the wine list was very uninspiring given the price. Some classics... More

Excelent tapas selection with Good quality products in a nice location. In my opinion there is still margin yo improve and quotes may be still a bit high. Keep up the good work.

We had dinner last night at Destino. I have had the pleasure of dining at some of the top-rated Michelin 3 star restaurants but the food/price/delishness of Destino was truly unbelievable!!! We shared 5 tapas for the 3 of us which were creatively presented and absolutely delicious. The eggplant fritters and the dessert-warm chocolate cup-cake-were a great topper to a... More

I've been here twice, and both times enjoyed it. Good tapas, interesting menu including most of the classic pinchos you'd expect to find. Stand out were some sardines and of course the Spanish omelette! Good atmosphere on the weekend, and good selection of drinks for the bar including some local gins. Efficient service, but not cheap. Enjoy!

My wife and myself went to Destino and we had a delicious diner (we had rice-fish balls fried in bread crumbs, croquette, and of course Iberico ham). All so the wine was good, and we could sit outside, which helped with the atmosphere of the evening. Also the personnel was friendly and new exactly when you needed attention and when... More

We go regularly to Destino. Our favorite place to eat good tapas. Fresh and good products in a relaxed environment. Not the prefab and heated stuff you get elsewhere. Nice wines and gins. Friendly staff. Not being able to reserve might be a turn off, but if you take this into account in advance and take some wine and pinchos... More
