Far away from tourist trap
This is where locals hang out
Very close to the square and it's walking distance to almost everything

Quaint sympathetic pub right by Mechelen's historic center and Market. Extensive Belgian beer menu, served just right. Great ambiance where the locals wet their whistle. Very decent pricing and service. My wife and I enjoyed sitting back chilling whilst watching people go by.

But calling it 'The Golden Fish'? I don't quite get that....

I love this bar.

Great atmosphere. Good music.

Nice outdoor terrace area.

Good selection of beer and reasonably priced.

Would recommend - a chilled place to spend an hour or two!

On a lazy Sunday evening I reckon that I saw De Gouden Vis at its best. I like relaxed “early doors” drinking and the mood in here was perfect. It was half full, with people enjoying quiet conversation; service was relaxed and friendly; and the beer was good.
Certainly during our two days in Mechelen, this was one of the best bars we found.

This bar is perfect for sipping on a couple of Belgium beers. Out the back is an artfully ageing conservatory looking over a small courtyard overlooking the canal- a space that would be perfect in the summer. For us it was raining and watching the rain whilst listening to the pitter patter on the glass roof was very relaxing! The beer was good, both draft and bottled. The service was excellent even when all the tables filled up. We had a plate of cheese with our last round which was delicious. I will be back to this bar!

If you go, try to find a table outside with the view of the canal. Its a fantastic place, lovely atmosphere. Every time I receive family from home (Argentina) I take the there!

I did go there a couple of time, living in the neighborhood.
A great place to drink something with friends, and to have the sensation to be in the golden times of the '60s
Nice and kind waiters, and of course: great biers :)

Off the beaten track, i.e. not on the central square, but only by some 100 m. Half the price. Many beers, nice terrace. Worth a visit. Cash only.

I sat in here last night enjoying a nice glass of cold Westmalle. Surrounded by the most interesting décor. Again like most places in Mechelen the staff speak English. High ceilings, a very curious building indeed. Left with an idea to look it up and research the history.
