Lovely little restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Lots of options on the menu. I had fish and chips which was delicious and my boyfriend had the squid tacos. Well worth a visit.

Small but delicious menu of mostly fish dishes. The sauces were delicious! Off the beaten path but worth the trip.

Try out this Fish n Chips restaurant. Location right in the center of the Old Town of Antwerp, while eating you’ll get a good view of the Cathedral, Grand Place and City Hall. On the menu panko fried daily catches, with deliciously made fried potators...More
