Eating and drinking in the depot

The depot has a (literally) glistening exterior and a spectacular interior. Another special experience awaits visitors who take the express lift to the sixth floor. The Depot’s roof not only provides a spectacular panoramic view of the city, but it also has a a restaurant, named Renilde, beautifully situated in a green oasis. And all of this in the heart of Rotterdam!

Currently, restaurant Renilde is closed until 25 January 2022, just like Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen. 

Rooftop restaurant Renilde

The sixth floor is located at a height of 34.5 meters and has a breathtaking view of the city of Rotterdam. The rooftop forest houses Restaurant Renilde with 120 seats and the events space, Coert, reached via an express lift. The catering concept has been desiged by Concrete. Food, refreshments and alcoholic drinks are served throughout the day to visitors with a valid entrance ticket. Restaurant Renilde is also open after the Depot closes and can be accessed free of charge from 6.00 pm, during opening hours of  the restaurant. Due to Corona measures, it is not possible at this moment to dine in restaurant Renilde. Hall Coert can be hired during the day and in the evening for all kinds of gatherings and events (evenementen@boijmans.nl). When the weather permits, visitors can dine on Restaurant Renilde's terrace in the roof garden and enjoy a beautiful view of the city, surrounded by greenery.

Restaurant Renilde, the name

Renilde Hammacher-van den Brande was curator at Boijmans from 1962-1978. She laid the foundation for one of the most important museum collections of modern art in the Netherlands. In addition to our Rothko, Renilde also bought work by Dalí, Magritte and Man Ray, among others. She also made major exhibitions in the museum, such as the legendary Dalí exhibition in 1970, which was opened by the surrealist master himself. Renilde Hammacher passed away in 2014 at the age of 101.

Hall Coert, the name

Coert Ebbinge Wubben started working at Boijmans in 1941, became acting director in May 1945 and was director from 1950-1978. Under his management, the museum acquired the collection of D.G. van Beuningen, with masterpieces by Van Eyck, Bruegel and Titian, among others. In that year, the name Van Beuningen was added to that of Boijmans. Together with Renilde Hammacher, he also gave space to modern art and took the initiative to expand the museum with the Bodon wing. He obtained two bequests, which are still active as important funds for acquisitions, the Lucas van Leyden Foundation and the Van Rede Fund Foundation. Coert Ebbinge Wubben passed away in 2014 at the age of 99.

Locally sourced food and beverages

In de keuken van restaurant Renilde wordt gekookt met ingrediënten die in het seizoen zijn, een duurzame keuze. De drankenkaart krijgt ook een regionaal karakter: zo schenken we Schiedamse jenever en passende lokale bieren.

Restaurant Renilde uses ingredients that are in season: a sustainable choice. The drinks menu also has regional character: we serve Schiedam jenever (gin) and local beers.
