“One of the last genuine oldie worldie cafés in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

This is one of my favourite places: The Entrepot refuses to adapt in a world of change. You can come here and sit the entire day with a pint or a coffee, or you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner as well. It's basic fare, but always good and reasonably priced. In the Summer, they've got a terrace on the street.

“Fresh tasty food for an ok price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

I had quite a positive experience and think this place deserves a better rating.
It is a bistro style place and I went here with friends and my 8 year old daughter.
Dish of the day 9 euro, pasta's around 11 and I ordered a classic Belgian dish "Chicon Gratin". The portions were more than enough and the pasta was cooked just right and looked delicious. My daughter had a kids pasta, which really had the same size as the adult ones!

Service was okish.., more cafe style. House was full (Sunday lunch time) and popular with families.

Overall bill 65 Euro for 5 persons incl. drinks and coffee.
Don't think that is too exaggerated.

I liked the food and the atmosphere and I will be returning to this place when around.

Well-known (hence often full) brasserie in Antwerp, next to the Fine-Art. Omlettes, salads... a typical brasserie menu. Not expensive.
