Restaurant & Convention Centre De Machinist Rotterdam

De Machinist is a multi-funcional venue located in a historic part of Rotterdam called Delfshaven. The café-restaurant serves international food but the fish dishes are specially recommended. De Machinist is also the right place to book a meeting room. The beautiful waterfront terrace on the river Schie makes the Machinist a nice venue for parties, weddings or meetings.

At De Machinist you can enjoy live music such as jazz concerts. And for sure the stand-up comedy night will make you roar with laughter every 3rd Saturday evening of the month. Inaddition, De Machinist Rotterdam is also a small-scale movie theatre: every Thursday evening you can watch a movie and it's pretty cheap. The intimate cinema can also be booked for corporate events and presentations.

" Nicely located restaurant in an old restored building. Atmosphere is warm and service is friendly and fast. Food is okay; bit too much salt on mushrooms and on the octopus which for the rest was well-prepared. Kids menu is limited. Hotdog menu is not self made and lacking other good food. Overall nice place for drink and quick food near the water."

" Nice view over the river in the cafe section (where you can also get drinks and dinner). Excellent drinks - was very impressed with the "bobby" Gin and "brand" beers. Food was expertly cooked. I had the veal stew which was extremely tender with a nice sauce. Highly recommend also because the service is excellent. Bartender was very attentive and charming."

" What an amazing experience tonight in De Machinist! We went here on the last day of our vacation and everything was just perfect. The service staff was very friendly and did everything to make us feel welcome (we received a free bottle of tap water and I was asked if I wanted to taste the wine before ordering a glass) and the food was DELICIOUS. The amount was just right for us to finish everything (even though we could have ordered more fries for free) and the taste was really exquisite. The price for everything was more than reasonable in my eyes. Thank you so much for making this evening a wonderful end of our visit to Rotterdam."
