“Fantastic Cafe culture type area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

There are upwards of 40 restaurants in this area, great choice and a buzzing atmosphere in both the restaurants and the bars. Much preferred to the touristy (Although still lovely!) Groote Market centre of the city

“Upmarket, but friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

An upmarket area in the South-west of the city. Homes to lots of small restaurants and bars, with nice reasonably priced food and drink. Friendly service abounds here. There is a cinema club - called Zuid at the side of the Fotomuseum which has a really good selection of films for only 5 Euro a film. Bus 34 takes you there with bus 30 a short distance away. Tram 12 also stops nearby.

“Love this neighborhood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

I love 't Zuid. The antique shops, the many restaurants and bars, the party scene, the museums and the closeness to the river. Can't go wrong here; There is simply something for everyone.

“Not quite all its all hyped up to be?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

OK, we did visit in the snow and the tramline (no 12) to the area is being dug up at the moment, but I couldn't quite see what all the fuss is about this area - I was expecting a lot more interesting shops and restaurants than there appeared to be. I imagine its a lot more lively in the spring and summer.

There're a couple of good cycle shops - one (a big Specialized and Brompton stockist) on the Vlaamsekai and another cheaper place at the SW end of Waalsekai, near the FotoMuseum.

Not a patch on Brighton's North Laine area.

“chic neighborhoud of Antwerp”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

It's very good and cosy there! You have a lot of restaurants and cafés where you can eat very well! In the summer there is a big fair where you need to go to! You have beautiful buildings there like museum van schone kunsten and some churches. It's easy to go there by tram ( 12, 24 and 4 )
