Cozy gourmet food restaurant

Cozy little restaurant that is very popular. We had to wait just a few minutes for a great table by the window that the hostess recommended for us. Very delicious food, in fact the best mussels that I've ever eaten! Rabbit and beef also very good.

I have been several times to Mampoko and I am always very pleased with the food and the service. They serve great dishes and have always special choices. The only disadvantage is the loudness of the restaurant. I really recommend Mampoko!!

Sunday - sunny - morning in Antwerp. We are early birds so the friendly waiters let us choose a table on the terrace since we did not have reservations. We go for two English breakfasts and coffee. Again nice, friendly service but nothing special in our plates. Just regular ingredients smashed side by side. And overpriced. There are numerous of... More

The name and wall decorations of Mampoko have everything to do with Belgium's colonial past. It is located on the main thoroughfare of central Antwerp. On a nice day there is sidewalk seating. We had breakfast here. Everything tasted fine, and the service was friendly. By the time we left, the place had completely filled up.

Great food, nice place, reasonable prices, fast and very friendly service. Mampoko is perfect in many ways. It can be busy and loud sometimes, but it's all part of the charm. Don't forget to make a reservation!

Saterday-evening. On the phone we were told the restaurant was fully booked so they could only squeeze us in at 9:30 p.m. which eventually became 9 p.m. in the end. When we arrived it was quite busy nevertheless we got the only free table next to the window which was great! The service was great, the food simple, good ingredients... More

We went for brunch on a fairly miserable rainy Sunday morning and were delighted to find a quiet piece of culinary sunshine in Antwerp. The restaurant suits all tastes and menus, has books, games and highchairs for children and is run by a laid-back but professional staff. There was no problem in ordering a gluten-free meal or checking the ingredients... More

On a shopping spree to Antwerp my wife had heard about this place "local brasserie for local people" so we went for a walk to find it. Twenty minutes later we were there. From outside it has a great wide glass front which offers a very nice view in and out. It has an African feel to it since all... More

We had heard about this cafe's amazing breakfast called Mampoko Royal and it was as good as the hype. A three tire platter with salmon, cheeses, ham, eggs, fruit, crossonts etc. The Art Deco decor is fabulous and we were very pleased that we went looking for it.
