If you are looking for a mussel and beer fix, then you have come to the right place. The selection of Belgian beers is awesome and you can also have a decent waffle (if you have enough space. Service was adequate.

Enjoyed a few glasses of beer with our mussels(cream sauce served in the side).

No worries about it being a bit chilly as blankets were provided. No outside heaters, but blankets were perfect.

Stopped in to have a drink after wandering around the waterfront. The beer was good; the ladies chose tea. Staff were very friendly. Did not have anything to eat.

When you visit a restaurant at least once a week, and sometimes more, you can't help wondering if there's going to come a day when it's just not as good as every other day. Happy to report, after 3 years, and even more frequent visits recently, that day has not yet come. From the friendly then slick booking service, to the warm welcome, the friendly and knowledgeable staff and maestros in the kitchen, every visit is superb. And that's not even considering the delicious range of beer (tap and bottle), quality wines, and really really delish food (including amazing desserts)! I've always been a huge fan of their seafood, but a recent decision to try the pork belly for a Sunday lunch was one of the best I've ever made! Because the belly dish was one of the best I've ever had! Den Anker just never disappoints, and even with very regular visits, still manages to create "Wow" moments almost every time.
