A warm welcome in a cosy place in the centre of Antwerp that serves you a decent plate of tastefull food at a reasonable price. Open kitchen, authentic "real" cooking. Not cheap but good value for money.

If you want to have a nice dinner in the old Antwerp city centre, this might be a good choice. Very attentive and friendly staff, a nice decor, not too many tables so even when full, you don't have the "overcrowded and packed" feeling and above all very good food. One negative point, the menu was rather limited as far... More

This is a nice place to have dinner with friends or family or as a couple, the atmosphere is quite cosy. Its also located on a narrow hidden street in the city. The meals are excellent, I absolutely love the filet mignon and their sautéed potatoes are too good! The staff are super friendly and understand actual customer service.

Knock-off 4€ from every dish and that would have been more acceptable. 18,50€ for spaghetti carbonara and 20€ for a salad was a little steep. Nevertheless, the restaurant is pleasant and the waiter was kind and welcoming. The chef came to check if we were doing ok, which is always a sign that people cook with care. My filet mignon...

A warm, relaxed environment in which to enjoy genuinely home cooked food. You can see the food being prepared and cooked from your table.Sit at he bar or eat at a table. The resturant has a cosmopolitan but homely feel. Prices were reasonable, very reasonable when you consider it's in the heart of a tourist area.

We went here last night without a reservation but we had no problem getting a table. Our table was on the first floor. We had three pasts and one meat dish; 2 tante tis,one BB and one meat dish. The service was fast. We will visit this restaurant again.

This was about the 30th restaurant we rang in an attempt to sample Antwerp's World-class dining scene and was STILL good enough to justify a personal thanks to the chef. There is no city like it and Sjalot en Schanul not only has superb food but the atmosphere of a gathering place for friends.

Good food, good service and certainly a good price/quality ratio. We selected this restaurant based on the Tripadvisor reviews and it matched my expectations. If any suggestion for improvement it would be to reduce a few tables. We visited on a monday and not all tables were used. A bit more space between the tables would improve the privacy of... More

The name may be difficult to remember but dinner at Sjalot en Schanul is a meal, I assure you, you won't soon forget. The meat and fish are always of the highest quality; the sauces are divine; the service is gracious and the prices are almost too good to be true. I've eaten at this hidden treasure three times in...

Another place that is slowly ageing with grace and becoming a valued point of reference. In the back street of the Grote markt, good food for a very good price, very family friendly, healthy meals : simply good, very good
