Rotterdam Faves: dreaming of Paris in Bistrot du Bac

Over time you will notice that many of my Rotterdam Faves are located in one area: Katendrecht. This favorite of mine is no different, and is located on the deliplein. Once I step in this restaurant, I am transported temporarily to Paris…the vibe, the smells coming from the kitchen and the look…Bistrot du Bac really takes me to Paris every time!

The night before my birthday I went there with a group of friends, to catch-up over dinner and good wine. Since this is walking distance from my apartment, it always makes for a nice walk along the river over Wilheminapier and across the bridge to Katendrecht. The decoration of Bistrot du Bac feels extremely Parisian and chic, with white tiles and old-style French posters on the wall.

While we were waiting for our group to be complete, they brought over some eggs with a delicious saus and a good Montepulciano wine. The three course menu is €37.50, which is great value for the delicious, beautiful food they serve.

As a main course I had bacon with blood sausage and vegetables, it was delicious!! Also, really….how cute are their non-matching, but matching plates?!

My dinner  – not the best looking, but definitely the best tasting!

My dessert was a cute, delicious pistachio cake with fresh raspberries. It was small and sweet – the perfect ending to a delicious and filling meal.

Incl. wine I believe we paid approximately €60 pp (we enjoy our wine…), and the meal is definitely worth it. In my opinion Bistrot de Bac is perfect for romantic dates, special occasions or long weekend lunches!

Visit Bistrot de Bac, and then head over to Café de Ouwehoer for whiskey or Fenix Food Factory for a beer – Katendrecht will surprise you and win you over <3!
