On a business trip in Antwerp, we accompanied our group to this place. They all called it simply "Statue Bar" so after scouring google earth, I found it! We visited after a huge dinner nearby, were full of wine, so we didn't want beer and it was FREEZING cold, so we asked if they could do irish coffee. They didn't... More

We have been coming here religiously (!!) every time we visit Antwerp, but we were a little concerned that their website seems to have gone, the name seems to be changing to "Cathedral Cafe" and the reviews have been less than encouraging. A "Cash Only" notice on the door didn't bode well either. We needn't have worried. The service was... More

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
