“great neighbourhood pub”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Great neighbourhood pub on the edge of "Zurenborg"-hood (actually it's in "Haringrode"). A mix of great atmosphere, excellent beerchoice of Belgian goodies and a simple but very good limited choice of food. My during the week hide-out for a good diner 'nd chat. Def worth trying !!

“Good food, cheap prices”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Limited choices, but always one vegetarian dish. The mood is very laid back. A true neighborhood pub!

“Food is ok, but setting is very basic”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I was surprised to see this bar/restaurant so full on a week day.
It's one of the it-places in town apparently, where everyone is welcome (including parents with small children). They offer a limited choice of dishes but I thought the food tasted really good.
Downside: if you like a real dining experience (like me) with a relaxed atmosphere, more than just a place for a quick bite, this isn't for you. The lighting (my sensitive spot) was more like TL-lights... and that just ruins it entirely for me. Also, screaming children... no thanks.

unpretentious local bar that serves food too, always packed. Friendly staff, best to make reservations on weekends

“Excellent meals in a no nonsense atmosphere.”
Reviewed August 3, 2011

Café Stanny used to be a pub where older locals met, but since the place is ran by a bunch of young people, it has become one of the hipper places in the Berchem/Zurenborg area. It has a no nonsense atmosphere and parents with young children are welcome.
You can choose between 4 or 5 different meals including at least one vegetarian plate. Prices vary from 9 to 12 euros, but you can get soup or sandwiches too for only 3 or 4 euros. The cuisine is simple Belgian, but excellent. The place can be very crowded on friday and saturday evenings and is closed on sunday. So get there in time because you can not make a reservation.
