Good food from Marocco!

I heard a lot of nice things from El Warda in Antwerp, so I've tried it with some friends. We ordered the plate with 12 little different 'tapas'. It was oké, but not overwhelming. Some bites were a little bit boring and not too seasoned. My main course however was very good. I ordered the tajine... read more

This restaurant is promoted in many brochures and booklets and in all kinds of local papers. They also profile themselves as authentic Cooking, well honestly for me it was a disappointment. We took a set menu with lots of different food items and Me personally enjoyed hardly anything, it was not spicy, I missed the typical herbs of the kitchen... More

The restaurant is nicely located, close to the dageraadplaats. The place itself is not the summum of coziness, but I thought it had a nice atmosphere. The staf was friendly, but as often a bit short in their answers. Waiting times were ok and the bathroom clean. As in many restaurant these days, they stack people to close on each... More

We went there a group of 8. After a twenty minute wait we were able to ask for the menus and drinks. Another ten minutes later they arrived. Between us ordering an appetizer and main course, and the main course actually arriving, two hours passed. Luckily there's bread, butter and olives to pass the time, but still. The food was... More

Ate here with friends and family on a trip to Antwerp. Down a road leading to Draaksplatz, one of Antwerp's many squares and directly on a tram route. It doesn't look that appealing from outside but don't be put off by that. A table for 10 had been pre booked. It was a bit of a squeeze on one side... More

Yesterday we went for the first time to El Warda, and it won't be our last. We tried the 12 amuses, which were all really tasty and different. Afterwards we tried the tajine with lamb and the egyptian bouillabaisse, both delicious! The service was also great, very friendly and genuine! A must do in Antwerp!

The Moroccan food at El Warda is just average. The plate of starters gave a nice taste of different flavours with some nice bread. However, as a main course, we had to eat the chicken tajine with the same basket of bread. I would have expected some rice or couscous. There were hardly any fresh vegetables to be found In... More
