Arrived late on a Sunday evening. Very friendly staff, had an exceptionally good stoofvlees with good, Flemish frites. Wide selection of local beers. Agreeable pricing, even on a student budget.

This local brasserie pub in Mechelen is an excellent place to enjoy the local Belgium beers and dishes. The price/quality is in balance and the suggestions are renewed weekly depending on the seasonal vegetables and meats. Worth a visit.

It is nice to have a place where you can go and enjoy a good meal without any fuss. Also taste the food and wine suggestions as they can be surprisingly good. The food is above average and of good value for money. Drink one of the many beers in their selection and if you dare, ask them to suggest... More

One of the few places you can eat steppegras (steak covered with thin fries). Plate was huge, but very yummy. Service wasn't super friendly but reasonable. Restaurant is fully booked moest of the time. Reservations can be made using the website.

Great selection of beers, relaxed atmosphere, very friendly staff and owners! We had a few meals at d'Afspraak and all of them have been very enjoyable and their food is value for money. It is located a few 100 meters from the main square. Make sure you bring cash coz they do not accept debit or credit cards.

This is a very nice address in Mechelen. The food is always delicious, and in addition to the menu, you have a special "daily dish", which is almost always truly recommended. If you are really hungry, you can also try the "Steppegras"... For drinks, you can choose from about 100 different beers...

You can say a lot about D'Afspraak, but it is a nice place where you can eat simple food for a very good price. They also have a wide selection of beers and you're more than welcome to just come in for a drink. But don't expect too much. I come here quite regularly just because it saves me the... More

While the interior of the place is nice, and they have an amazing list of beers here, the food showcases everything that is wrong with bar food in Flanders. Bland, overcooked, loveless staple dishes of pasta and meat. Drink here, don't eat here.
