Restaurant Fitzgerald is named after the famous writer Francis Scott Fitzgerald. The writer who once said, "Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right."
We really enjoy this motto and therefore we offer you a great selection of wines from almost every important wine region and in many different styles.
Moreover our chef Michael Verhagen and his staff have managed to ensure the kitchen is considered to be one of Rotterdams most interesting in a short period of time.
From 2018 on Fitzgerald has been awarded one Michelin star.
Fitzgerald is a contemporary culinary and wine destination where Rotterdammers and international guests meet. A restaurant, with a beautiful private dining, a spacious bar, and a private garden. It is located on the modern Gelderseplein in the historic Oude Haven.
The international interior combines modern design with vintage classics.
The kitchen, under the guidance of Chef Michael Verhagen, has a classical basis, but with a modern twist and serves mainly seasonal ingredients.
Restaurant Fitzgerald is open from Wednesday till Saturday for lunch and dinner.
You can choose from the à la carte menu to a maximum of 5 guests. Will you be visiting us with a larger party? We are more than happy to serve you one of our set menu's or create a tailor-made menu for you. On Saturdays we offer no à la carte options.
At Fitzgerald we have a strong passion for wine. Therefore we can offer you a selection that is amongst the most interesting in our country. Many wines are ready to be drunk young and are fruit driven and approachable. But just as many of "our" wines are cellared and aged and only offered when we feel they are ready for you to enjoy. It is a very diverse selection where we often present you the top producers from the respective regions. A selection for wine afficionados and we love to advise you when needed.
Currently we can offer you around 4000 different wines, from young vintages, to classic vintages and even some of more than 50 years old. We are the proud recipients of the 'Star Wine List Grand Prix' for 'Best wine list in The Netherlands' and the 'Best of Award of Excellence' from Wine Spectator. In 2022 the wine list was chosen as 'Best wine list of the year' by Gault&Millau.
That we also love Champagne can be seen from our motto: "Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right" F. Scott Fitzgerald

Restaurant Fitzgerald offers the option to book a beautiful private dining room for a party from 10 up to approximately 28 people, depending on how the table setting will be arranged. This space can be subtly closed with see through sliding doors, whereby your private company is still part of the restaurant.

Depending on your program and/or number of guests there are additional costs for the use of the private dining.
