Great place for a romantic dinner. I had the Carbonnade flamande (small chunks of beef stewed in beer) with fites. It was delicious! Would love to return.

Le Barbue d'Anvers is a nice estaminet. It serves a very nice food including a lot of dishes typical from the North of France and Belgium. The food is nice and it comes in large enough portions. The place is very nice: a very old...More
