Cosy pub/bar, good food, nice restaurant

The main dining room is nicely decorated and has plenty of room for groups of 10-12 persons or more.The bistro (same kitchen) area is cosy and relaxed. The bistro joins the pub/bar, which is also cosy. Overall, good food, friendly service and value for money.

De Kroon is an old coaching inn on the Breda road in Brasschaat, Antwerp's upmarket Northern suburb. It has had a mixed history over the last 12yrs, but is now in the capable hands of one of Antwerps most successful entrepreneurial families in the HORECA industry. We ate there last week for the first time under the new patrons. The... More

After renovation of De Kroon, it is really worth a visit to enjoy a nice meal. You have several possibilities to eat, either in the "bistro" or the restaurant, separated by a hall. The food is really good, and both the quality and the portions are OK. We had tagliatelle with ttruffle and my companion took the seafood pasta. Both... More

Had dinner here over the weekend - four adults and two kids. The great thing about it is that there is something for everyone, which rarely happens when kids are involved! We had some great mains - Veal, Steak Tartare with a nice twist (on the specials), the usual Belgian suspects - shrimp and cheese croquettes, eel etc. and the... More

We had a wonderful New Year's eve here. The food is very nice, great flavours and very friendly staff. The menu serves both very expensive excesses and more casual dining, accomodating all needs. We really liked it and will definitely return. This restaurant is part of the 'Velvet Group' (Umami and the former Velvet Lounge) which are also very respected... More

Average food. I like my fish fresh, not from the freezer. Service is also cold and without a smile. Love the terrace!

I went here for dinner with my mother and I hadn't dressed up, I was wearing jeans and a polo shirt. It appears that this meant we were "quantite negligeable" to the waiter who took 10 minutes to acknowledge we were even there, then brought us our menu. Another 15 minutes later he came back to take our order after... More
