The Elfde Gebod literally translates to the "11th Commandment" and for any good (or recovering Catholic) this should be your newest 11th Commandment: Thou shalt not miss this bar when traveling through Antwerp. This is my favorite hangout in Antwerp (and the one reason I keep dreaming of a permanent move here). Drinking a lovely beer (I suggest Judas) amongst... More

A total no-go! Despite being completely empty inside and having only a few non-dining guests on the terrace, it took the waitress an hour and 10 mins (!!) and two reminders from her colleague to realise that she has forgotten to place our orders in the kitchen. That after pulling faces (!!) by taking our orders (how dare I, a... More

I loved this place. Very unusual to drink a delicious pint of robust Belgian beer under the watchful eyes of hundreds of religious statues. Beautiful inside and out.

Worth a quick visit to have a drink as it’s near the Cathedral. The service is probably not the best we ordered two bowls of chips as a snack but only got one despite asking a couple of times for the second bowl. The beer range is average but it’s a good place to visit just to look at all... More

This bar has to be seen to be believed. Been to bar's near the cathedral in Antwerp that had religious item's in ,but this bar was just mind blowing. As you enter and your eye's adjust to the low lighting you are hit by every type of religious statue you can imagine. It was a tad over the top for... More

Sort of discovered this restaurant while touring Antwerp city with friends from Constanza, Romania last month. Although we had visited Antwerp many times over the years, we were not aware of the restaurant or its history and reputation. All well-deserved we think. Centrally located, imaginatively and creatively decorated and furnished, themed eclectic, one might say. The lunch was hearty, economically-priced;... More

Good selection of beers, limited selection of wines... Service is OK. However, what makes you come in to have a drink in here is the environment of the huge amount of catholic statues and the impressive old building.
