Excellent place for lazy Sundays.

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... read 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.

Came here with a friend as we were traveling south, as it had good reviews on TripAdvisor! We came in quite early (about 6pm) and were able to get a table without a reservation, but it seemed that they were reserved for later in the evening. Definitely not meant for tourists, the menu is only in Dutch (but the waiter... More

We were a large one of around 16 and they gave us two adjacent tables, which was good. We moved from table to table (a little like dinner dates!) and the staff were cool. The drinks came quickly, there was a good selection of local cuisine - all in a nice laid back atmosphere. As many of us did not... More

This is great place for any meal, it has a decent menu but always has a very good suggestions board, from a croque to duck legs in wild season the dishes here are always to a high standard.

I had the chance to celebrate my birthday with my family and friends in this restaurant. Great atmosphere very warm and friendly. The menu of the day is written on a blackboard which is presented to every newcomer! The food was delicious. I had a special dish with vegetables and cheese in the iven and it was delicious. They were... More

Adequate service, considering it wasn't particularly busy. Nevertheless, the food was delicious; it was the first time I'd tried Shrimp Croquettes (bit on an Antwerp specialty, I hear) and the courgette soup was delightfully fresh and peppery. A perfect lunch combination! Disappointing range of Coeliac options for my dear grandmother, but hey-ho... everyone else seemed pretty darn pleased with their... More

We managed to get the last outdoor table for lunch on a Saturday. The place was full of locals and is clearly popular. Unlike most places we went to in Antwerp, Mampoko had several staff on hand and they were efficient and helpful - offering to translate the menu for us. We had very good meals at a reasonable price.... More
