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

We often end up eating here during business trips because it offers a dazzling array of beers and a delightful menu. And that's without mentioning the unique atmosphere inside where a startling number of religious decorations, busts and statues adorn every shelf, nook and cranny. It's almost as if you are being judged as you quaff different beers under the... More

If you are not into religious statues, this is perhaps not the place for you - there are hundreds of them! On the other hand they do have a great selection of Belgian beers in unique surroundings including the 10% St Bernardus which we enjoyed. As with all Belgian pubs, the difficulty was deciding which beer to choose. Not the... More
