“Great place for a quick lunch”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

I love going here when I have finished browsing the shops on the Kloosterstraat. Tasty lunch at a reasonable price. Staff efficient and very friendly. Have been also at night and had a superb steak, cooked to perfection.

“Trendy bistro”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Brasseries come and go, but “Chez Fred” is definitely here to stay - it’s probably one of the best bistros in Antwerp.
The total “package” is really nice : extremely friendly staff and delicious food. We’ve had lunch and dinner several times and always had an amazing time. Everything we order is delicious, from starters to desserts : thumbs up. The atmosphere is trendy, but relaxed, you instantly feel comfy - I could eat at “Chez Fred” any day of the week !

“be sure to check the bill”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

went there for the first time with friends a couple of weeks ago
good food and friendly service... but be sure to check the bill, as they try to charge you drinks you didn't have! when we asked where the 2 beers came from (we had water, soft and wine, starters and main courses, ... but no beer) the waitress said something like 'yeah sorry wasn't sure if it was this table or the other one that had ordered the beers'... as if...

“Excellent choice”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

This quaint restaurant is at the well-known antique shops Kloostertraat (between Town hall and the museum of Fine Arts).

The retro decoration gives the place an unpretentious, cosy atmosphere.
Trendy clients.
We were helped by young and very friendly staff who understand English.
During the good season, al fresco lunches & dinners served also under a parasol.

The food is obviously very fresh and is well prepared. Prices are more than reasonable. The special of the day is an excellent choice!

Restaurant to be recommended.

“Bets place in town: quality / price”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

I've been several times eating chez Fred during the summer, and The food is just excellent.The quality and quantity you receive by every meal is perfect.
Atmosphere of the place is absolutely cool, and during the summer on a sunny day, the terrace is great. Situated in the middle of the antique sales neighborhood, Chez Fred has definitively a lot of charm and style. Not to be missed !
