Parisian Hotspot in Rotterdam

One of the things which I love to do is to discover “Parisian inspired” places in Holland. Two weeks ago I discovered a Parisian hotspot in Rotterdam on a Saturday afternoon.

I don’t live far from Rotterdam so I spend much time in this city which has so many to offer for everyone’s interest. Architecture, museums, the port, many shops and wonderful addresses to rest the feet 🙂
My husband and I walked a different way then we normally do. We crossed the Coolsingel and took the Meent route,  a street full of wonderful shops like Profuomo, Nikkie, American Vintage, Replay, Nespresso, State of the Art, Smaak Amsterdam and the famous ice salon “de IJssalon” which I can highly recommend.

You also cross the Saturday market which I always an happening and I had to visit more because of the variety of products and prices. But now we felt a little bit hungry so we decided to go straight to the Parisian hotspot, called “Brasserie Pierre”. When we entered the brasserie, I felt that I was in Paris immediately. The interior is very French, with small round tables close together, wooden chairs and leather couches. I loved the photos on the menu and the many delights which were on it. I couldn’t chose, till I saw that they had “steak tartare”. Steak tartare is a dish which I don’t order everywhere because it is raw meat. But here, in this Parisian setting, I had to order it and I could say that I enjoyed it to the fullest. My husband chose the goat cheese baquette which looks delicious too.

Brasserie Pierre is a very crowded place and we were lucky that we had a beautiful table with a streetview. I enjoyed the “Parisian” atmosphere and I could imagine that we were in Paris that hour and not in Rotterdam 🙂 It is a place which we will visit regularly, for a drink, lunch or dinner to get that Parisian feeling!

  1. Leuk om jouw parijs-gekleurde visie op Rotterdam te horen! Eigenlijk heb ik niet zo veel met deze stad, ik denk omdat hem te modern vind.

    Toch vind ik het charmant om te horen dat je in Rotterdam ook zulke knusse plekjes tegen kunt komen als Brasserie Pierre. Ik zal het onthouden voor de toekomst. 😉

    Ik zou trouwens zelf voor de geitenkaas zijn gegaan, ziet er goed uit!

    • Ik kom al jaren dagelijks in Rotterdam en ik moet zeggen dat ik met de jaren deze stad ben gaan waarderen. Zelf hou ik meer van steden met een oud centrum, helaas heeft deze Rotterdam niet. Toch kan ik soms het moderne wel waarderen en is het leuk om het af te wisselen 🙂

  2. Ah super leuk! Ik hou ontzettend van knusse cafeetjes en zeker als ze beïnvloed zijn met Parijse sfeer <3 En Rotterdam is inderdaad een stad met veel mogelijkheden, ik was afgelopen weekend nog naar de Peter Lindberg tentoonstelling~

  3. Erg leuk om te zien! Ik ben Rotterdamse en loop er zo vaak langs, maar nog nooit binnen geweest. Dat broodje met geitenkaas ziet er echt lekker uit. <3
