“We only had beers...”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

3.5€ for a well served Gouden Carolus Triple on draught was a give away. We took 2. And although it turns into a restaurant at 6:15 pm we were not kicked out and enjoyed beers till almost 7 pm! Mechelen gets lest sour?

“A 'must go' on the Main square”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

You will find a large choice of classical flemish dishes at Den Beer adn they are well prepared and well served. Beers and wines show a large and interesting selection. Prices are at the higher side but still OK. Menu is in dutch but they will translate it for you without problem.

“typical brasserie”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

unpleasant brasserie as you find thirteen in a dozen in all belgian towns. The food is good but rather expensive for what you get. For same price you can have better. Brasserie mostly visited by locals who think they are somewhat better than others or by innocent tourists

Had the pasta with scampi which was great, portion larger than expected and some good wines on their menu. Pricing is very reasonable

“Very nice location, very professional, very good food, a little expensive”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

On the beautiful main square of Mechelen, surrounded by many other taverns, Den Beer is one of the best addresses. Here you can go for fish or meat, it will always be very fresh and well prepared. Local people know it perfectly : They are plenty visiting Den Beer for lunch and dinner. All belgian specialties like shrimp croquettes or baked sole and tartar beef are on the list. The wine list visits most of the wine countries of the world.
