Great place to drink beer in Antwerp. A very good staff. Place makes a big impression . Different from all the cafes in which I had the pleasure to be!

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.

In this place you go to sit, have a drink and look around. The service is probably not the best, but that is not what you go for. You go to sit there and look around and be amazed by the decoration. I can't say too much as I would spoil the surprise. Go!

I was tempted to go into this restaurant for both the decor and its own brewed beer, called Het Elfde Gebod. I did not try the food, but it looked very nice. The beer is lovely and costs €3.20. They will not sell bottles of it till sometime in 2014, but you can try it on tap.

I guess this is where all the catholic statues ended up. If you like a bit of quirky with a good selection of beers then this place is worth a visit. I guess it is a bit of a tourist venue but I have never seen anything like it before.

My husband & I just couldn't resist going into this restaurant! We felt if the menu didn't look good or if it didn't look clean we could just have a beer and not eat lunch, but regardless it was going to be worth a look around! The restaurant is next to the cathedral hence it's nickname the cathedral cafe. We... More
