The location, building and, most of all, the decor set this place apart from all similar places. It is crammed with original (mostly) religious statuary that could have been lifted from the beautiful cathedral almost next door. Absolutely loved it. It serves a great selection of Belgian beers and has a more than adequate menu. Lots of people were eating... More

This beautifully decorated place has one problem - big problem.. It is more of a museum of religious statues than a pub. Because to get a beer you have to wait and wait and then they forget you and then they do not look at you. At times when we came the place was full with no single table left.... More

We had read about this bar and peeped through the window...and the next day we called in for a drink to take a proper look at the interior and soak up the atmosphere. As you would expect, there is a good selection of both Belgian and Trappist beers, as well as wines by the bottle or glass. My (rather old)... More

Just go. It is difficult to express the amazement of this place. Once you have been you will have to go again. The food and the beer are good. It is always busy. The fire is so welcoming in the cold and damp. But it is the decor......go.

Such an amazing place. I have never seen a decoration like that. All the bar is full of Saints in different sizes.The bulding looks quite antique and adds to the wire atmosfere. I would not miss it.

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
