What a fantastic restaraunt. The portions were healthy and it was the best mixed grill I have ever eaten.! The food was superb.... my only complaint was that there was not enough sauce for the size of the meal.... Beautiful

We walked by De Pottekijker and noticed it was quite crowded, checked out the menu and came back the next day to make a reservation for that night. Upon arrival the restaurant was packed and we were able to snag a cozy 2 top by...More

We went here based on fellow TA's reviewers opinions and we too would have to join the vast majority in saying this is a quality restaurant. Located very centrally in Antwerp it has both indoor and outdoor seating and a relaxed/cosy environment. The food quality...More

We never got any bread and the service was slow. We waited about 40 minutes for food. The dishes and ambiance and location are good. As we payed the waiter explained that they were currently understaffed.

Very nice ambiance, excellent staff, good service. Food was good, but portions were way to much for 1 person. Mixed grill was enough for 2 and the fish pot for 1,5. Waste of such nice food. We will definitely return.

The setting and the atmosphere at this restaurant were both lovely. Very Gezellig upon arrival. The space is tight, but charming and beautifully candlelit. The service was fine, though a bit detached. The food was quite good. The owner himself ( sadly) seemed quite stern...More

We visited this restaurant on a Friday evening - our first in the city. This small and quaint location seemed very 'local'. It reminded us of a ski chalet, due to the lovely exposed woodwork and mezzanine floor that was literally a few feet above...More
