For our singing group of 10 we were looking for a nice restaurant in Antwerp and I stumbled on the site of Sjalo & Schanul. At first sight I was charmed by the interior and the reasonable prices. There is no on line reservation so I was forced to call, which turned out to be a good thing since I got to speak to the very friendly owners who, in spite of being very busy on a saturday night, simply made place for our group.
On arrival we were welcomed by the very friendly employer who led us to a table on the first floor. Again, struck by the charm of the place, we had a really great evening.The food was amazing, no complaints about 10 different dishes on a busy night!
Standing outside for the obligatory cigarette break, the owners came out as well and we had a great chat with those sweet ladies. All in all very reccomendable!
We are coming back for sure, and thanks for making us feel so welcome!

We choose this place based on the reviews here and it was a disappointment for us.

We are vegan and when we called we were assured that it would be no problem and that the chef would take a moment to discuss with us what we eat and what we don't eat. We were thrilled and always truly appreciate when a chef is willing to cook for us!

But, on arrival, we were a bit disappointed that the waiter hardly took the time to listen to our dietary concerns. We do not think the chef was even notified to have that talk with us.
We were not sure what would happen so we played it safe by ordering a vegetarian pasta without cheese. We are usually always happy to eat a nice pasta but this was a bowl of spaghetti drenched in slightly spicy olive oil with 5 cherry tomatoes and 10 pine nuts. Something any home cook can whip up in 15 minutes. Knowing that the pasta goes for 17€ per plate we felt like the value for money was below par.
After the meal, they cleared the plates and the staff was too busy with each other (although the restaurant was starting to empty) to ask if we wanted some dessert and/or coffee. So we asked for the bill.

Bring cash, they don't accept cards.

Although we looked very much forward to eating here because of the incredible friendly people we talked to on the phone... given the huge choice in Antwerp, we will give this place a miss in the future.

We had dinner here on a Friday with a group of friends and the overal feedback is very positive. For a start we were not restricted to a number of menu items as you often are when coming as group. The menu itself offers something for everyone without being complicated. The food is well prepared and looks and tastes as homecooked food should leaving you satisfied after the meal. The service was friendly and efficient so no complaints there.
I would happily return to try out the other items on the menu.
