We used our Groupon voucher to eat mussels "as much as you can".
Booking the table, in the first place, was a real downer: I had to e-mail them twice and still no response. Then I called them 4 times, the first time I was treated very arrogantly, the next two times the ladies on the phone could'nt help me as they said they couldn't take reservations by phone and finally, on a Sunday morning at 11.30, I got the owner who said that, altough no table was free for that evening, we could come in later that evening.
We were given a nice table and were looking forward to our meal. However, to our surpise, we were not offered the possibilty to specify our preference of how the mussels would have to be cooked, but merely they were served as such. The first serving was OK: tasty and with a lot of veggies.
When we then asked for a small supplement (" eat as much as you can") we were given two pots for the for the 4 of us. This serving was totally tasteless: the mussels were overcooked and without any vegetables. Also no sauce was provided. Additional fries were billed.
All in all, we had a good time with the friends, but the meal itself was well below expectations. My advice: there are plenty of other mussel restaurants in Antwerp where you can eat as least as good as Chez Rini and where you will be treated as a customer.
