Greatly enjoyed the typical Flemish beef stew prepared with dark Belgium beer. The waitress was very attentive and nice. I'm an American who would return here. Terrific old city location. Check it out.

Nice visit to De Pottekijker. Small restaurant with local flavors. I had a stew that was good. My wife’s meal was not as pleasant. I think it’s probably a consistent staple to the area..... Enjoy.
