We always enjoy the Appel. Very good friendly and personal service. The food is not special but very tasty and in normal portions. Also they try their best to grant special wishes like gluten and vegetarian. Also the lunch I highly recommend.

Lovely food and good location in town. It was a nostalgic re-visit back to Hengelo, where we lived 18 years ago. De Appel used to be one of our favourite places to have a drink.
