"Whole baked Sea bream",said the genial voice on the telephone, "Yes we do wholl fish". Yeepee! I am in like flynn. the weather was cooperative and beautiful so we ambled for an hour or so prior to our booking,savouring the street delights. We sat outside and were promptly attended to. My interest was piqued when observing the platters of mixed... More

We visited this place in November 2012 on a quick jaunt to Antwerp, and we found it to be really enchanting - simply cooked, perfectly seasoned, incredibly fresh seafood in a cool environment with excellent and friendly service. It was about the exact opposite this time around. I booked online a couple weeks in advance just to be safe. Upon... More

We were staying around the corner from Fiskebar and had wanted to try it the last time we visited Antwerp. We tried our luck on a Saturday night and got a table quite easily - the weather was lovely and most people were sitting outside. We had wonderful oysters to start with a glass of champagne. We had whole-baked sea... More

Fiskebar is really the place to be in Antwerp to enjoin a freshly made fish platter; also the sea-food platters are very good. Enjoy also the ØSTERSBAR next to the Fiskebar where no reservation is needed (but always crowded).

The fish is extremely fresh and the environment very informal but trendy. The restaurant is split in two parts, one that need reservation and the second that is intended for a quick drink or meal. They have been very nice to accommodate us in the second room, even if we had no reservation. The selection of seafood is impressive and... More

We had a great first impression. It is atmospheric on arrival. However when we were seated we waited 30mins to be offered a menu (at least). After we ordered we waited an hour for our entree, with others around us being served before us despite arriving after us. We had empty glasses and were not offered new drinks, had to... More

We went to the Fiskebar on our Antwerp City Bikes - the setting is casual, the crowd ranges from couples on holiday (like us) to groups of friends, to families taking their grandma out for lunch. We got three starters and a glass of sparkling Belgian white(who knew?) to split. The cod cheeks in salsa verde were outstanding, the crab... More

Food is very good, servers are very kind. The neighborhood is beautiful with a very nice statue just next to the restaurant. Especially, house smoked salmon with mustard caviar is strongly recommended.

Absolutely fantastic. Good menu. The food was terrific, the wine suggested fabulous and suited the meal perfectly. Waiters friendly and helpful. Open kitchen which fits the atmosphere. The only minor detail is that we were seated next to the kitchen exit, therefore underneath a fluorescent tube and there are a lot people squeezed into the restaurant - so not the... More

Fiskebar set a high standard for seafood restaurants in Antwerp. The atmosphere is quite crowded and busy, but service doesn't suffer and is smooth. Last time I visited they didn't serve tuna anymore and actually that's a good thing. There is a nice choice of wines available too.
