A small but cosy restaurant with two mezzanine areas, good atmosphere and great food. The waitress was particularly helpful, translating the more challenging parts of the Flemish menu with patience. The small kitchen means you might experience a longer than usual wait for food at busy times, but the portions are generous so it was ideal for us. All tastes are catered for - meat, fish and veggie - highlights for us being traditional beef in beer stew and a substantial fish stew. Starters included fish soup, krokketes and tapas-style prawns in garlic.

One of the best meals I've ever had. No experimental nonsense, just real, rustic, hearty food. Lots of meat. Has a balcony inside. Highly recommended.

We had dinner there once and the food was good: large portions and good price. The next time we wanted to make a reservation, the person answering the phone was very unfriendly, arrogant and unprofessional.

In the old town part of Antwerp this cosy restaurant serves great meat dishes. We felt welcome and at home in the warm atmosphere of the Pottekijker. Service was nice and quick and the quality of the food was good.
This is a great place to go for a meat dinner!
