After an excellent evening with a group of 18 friends, enjoying good food and very attentive service, I am happy to recommend the De Engel to visitors.
However, there were a couple of slight issues, which luckily did not spoil our night. Our organisor had been in touch with the restaurant some significant time in advance, to agree the arrangements, inc table location etc, which was confirmed by email. When we arrived, we were told they had the booking for the following night.
The second issue involved the fire alarm going off, caused by a smoke machine in a part from an adjoining room. The fire brigade arrived and charged into the building. We carried on drinking (after receiving re-assurances !)
We all chose from a 'table d'hote' menu, whcih was 3 choices of 3 courses, for 28 Euros.
We would certainly consider returning if we happened to be in Rotterdam again.
