The Anker is a big, bistro-type restaurant, located on the premises of the Anker (anchor) brewery, where the traditional beer of Mechelen is still brewed. Traditional Belgian food. The atmosphere is pleasantly busy. The beer is absolutely worth a try. There is also a hotel on the premises.

We came here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday with 11 friends. We chose out of 5 nice menu's and bought him dinner. We each paid about 40 euro's for 3 courses (soup/ main dish/ dessert) and adjusted beers with each course.On top my boyfreind got a special little glass for his birthday. Really nice food that went well with the beers they served us.

Came here 3 times for food/beer whilst in Mechelen. One of the few places open for food on sunday nights. Lovely beers. Had the Mechelen cookoo (bit tough) and the flemish stew (excellent). would also recommend the freedom bread and cheeses or ham as both were very good. Lovely atmosphere. Bit let down by the staff who were friendly but a bit forgetful (possibly as a result of being overworked).
