In a 16th century building hidden away at the end of a tiny cobbled courtyard, the Barbue d’Anvers is as much as institution for the locals as the lucky visitors who find it. It’s an estaminet – the Flemish word for a tavern, an absolute...More

Typical regional dishes of rustic food served in a traditional way. The restaurant is very special “ hidden” place in a backyard but entering through the doors opens up a very cozy and special atmosphere. Prices ok. Service good.

This restaurant sits in a sort of building backyard, preceded by two others more economical places I'd say (judging from what it was served), so it was found almost because of a chance and - at the net of my experience - I wish I...More
