We sat inside as it was a dismal, dull day in Antwerp. This is pretty tired looking to be honest and multi roomed. The staff were good though not attentive. In other words, if you wanted something then grab them when they were in the room. The food was very good though: we had the steaks which were excellent quality... More

Located not far from the Groenplaats, you should go there for a lunch in an informal cosy atmosphere. Weather permitting; you may enjoy your meal in the court. The portions served are quite large and of good quality. Various special beers are offered and the staff is friendly.

This is a fantastic bar/restaurant tucked away in a courtyard, it has many rooms and also offers tables in the courtyard. It has a great selection of beers, a great atmosphere and it even has a secret chapel which you can view. this is one place not to miss.

We booked a dinner in this typical Belgian restaurant because of the nice environment in a building with a long history in the old town. Most reviews were positive and the menu looked attractive. However it didn't last long before we realized our mistake: we were served by an uninterested waitress who seemed bored with her job and the customers.... More

Frequented by locals and families the traditional Belgian fare was reasonable but not that great. There are better places

Set in a nice ambiance, with a nice terrace. Used to be a very nice place to enjoy Belgian specialties. This time probabbly the staff hadn´t their day, even if there where few customers. As we expected a long stay enjoying our visiting friends, we decided to order a portion of French fries to accompany some fine beers, unfortunately the... More

The service was very good. We got our food very quickly. It was delicious. The beef stew was excellent, with some Belgian fries and a salad. Well worth the price.
