We found this place, tucked away outside the city center, because of the Lonely Planet guide of Belgium. It has a nice atmosphere. The beer menu alone is impressing, both draft and bottled beers. My friend ordered the 'steppegras' which is a basically a (good) steak buried under a pile of very thin, crispy fries. It's an impressive sight and... More

This small restaurant seems it's a good choice for traditional Belgian food. We ordered croquettes and carbonade and it was very good. I recommend you to drink a Golden Carolus, the special local beer, very strong and tasty. The staff was nice and the spoke English so it was very helpul explaining the Menu and the service was fast but... More

The taxi driver bringing us to our hotel recommended this restaurant and we decided to go straight away. It had just opened and they were having power trouble but I'm glad we stayed. With 2 fantastic Belgium beers to go with the Prawn D'Afspraak & rice, I was 100% impressed and satisfied with the meal. Perfectly cooked and fantastic flavour... More

Best goat cheese and bacon salad in Mechelen. Also the only restaurant in town that serves authentic 'steppegras' which is a steak covered in super tin fries.

Arrived late on a Sunday evening. Very friendly staff, had an exceptionally good stoofvlees with good, Flemish frites. Wide selection of local beers. Agreeable pricing, even on a student budget.

This local brasserie pub in Mechelen is an excellent place to enjoy the local Belgium beers and dishes. The price/quality is in balance and the suggestions are renewed weekly depending on the seasonal vegetables and meats. Worth a visit.

It is nice to have a place where you can go and enjoy a good meal without any fuss. Also taste the food and wine suggestions as they can be surprisingly good. The food is above average and of good value for money. Drink one of the many beers in their selection and if you dare, ask them to suggest... More

One of the few places you can eat steppegras (steak covered with thin fries). Plate was huge, but very yummy. Service wasn't super friendly but reasonable. Restaurant is fully booked moest of the time. Reservations can be made using the website.

Great selection of beers, relaxed atmosphere, very friendly staff and owners! We had a few meals at d'Afspraak and all of them have been very enjoyable and their food is value for money. It is located a few 100 meters from the main square. Make sure you bring cash coz they do not accept debit or credit cards.
