A warm and cozy place. Very welcoming with the most friendly staff. The serving is exceptional and the food that I had was delicious. It reminds me of my grandma’s cooking.

Really nice, intimate restaurant but not for the feint hearted. Portions here are big and the food is good quality and well cooked. My only complaint was that is was very warm but otherwise would recommend. Prices seem much more reasonable than all the other...More

If you like traditional oldie worldie restaurants with atmosphere and character (a bit cramped for space), but also with good food you should come here. Food was fresh and well presented/prepared. Two starters and 3 mains plus some drinks cost €130. So not cheap but...More

Some restaurant proprietors do their clients' dieting for them, and for a starter provide flaccid lettuce topped by two small, scrawny prawns floating in a vague-tasting pink sauce. Not at De Pottekijker where North Sea brown shrimp comes bulging, no bursting, with plump shrimps. A...More

We usually start our weekend of beer and culture in Antwerp with a Friday night at Pottekijker. The prices may creep up a little but our meal is always great value, both quality and quantity. The mixed grill is a firm favourite but nothing will...More
