We had dinner at Roots and really enjoyed our evening. The food was delicious and beautifully plated. The staff were attentive and took really good care of us. We will definitely recommend and come back! Thank you

Very good bistro for a hotel restaurant. large variety of food items from a quinoa salad to eggs benedict or mussels. You will surely find something appealing. My food was very good.

I opted for the set menu, which started off with a stunning smoked trout dish followed by pork belly. I had a local beer to accompany although in hindsight I should have gone for a crisp dry white wine. The starter could not be faulted whatsoever but although the main was well-presented, the meet was tad dry and required extra... More

With friends to the Stadshal in the Hilton Rotterdam. Service was good and very friendly. The meal, however, gives me some puzzles. The ladies ordered "Zeebaars". that was tasteful, but: Keep windows and doors closed since it was so little food it would be blown away from your plate. My piece of meat was ordered Medium but was welldone. With... More

Have eaten here a couple of times when staying here but just never that impressed I'm afraid ..... The lobster ravioli was way too salty, the sauce was tasty but too runny and just not main course sized - nice fries and ok burger on another visit. The bread is actually really really good :-) Rob

During IFFR we have had a fast bite in this restaurant of the Hilton in Rotterdam. Nice surprise! Carpaccio and Cesar Salat were both perfect and as we liked to share, the staff even asked us if we needed a small or larger plate; this is what hospitality means! Wine was good, but bit costly. Overall: good experience!!

The restaurant is located inside the Hilton Rotterdam and is separated from the bar so no worries about noise. The menu had a mix of expected bar classics as well some slightly more refined dishes so there was something for everyone. The staff were very friendly and made an effort to get to know my preferences. They were polite and... More

This restaurant/bar is connected to the Rotterdam Hilton. We have been there on Boxing Day (26-Dec-2015) which is the busiest time in Restaurants in Rotterdam. Although busy, the friendlyness and quality of employees were outstanding. Our thanks to the Hilton Staff.

Had a very pleasant lunch here recently in the relaxed setting of the Hilton hotel. The food was very nouveau but very tasty. The bread basket was awesome! Definitely much better than just a hotel restaurant! Service was a bit slow though, but maybe thats the relaxed Rotterdam approach.

Hotel meals are often uninspiring, lacking in quality and lukewarm. The Stadshal in the Rotterdam Hilton was not like most hotel meals being good quality, tasty and hot. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her lamb chops and my sea bass was cooked perfectly. Certainly a restaurant I would return to.

Thank Antarctic
