We had a couple of drinks after diner here. Cosy place and had a relaxed evening. At the end however, the bartender ostentatiously refused the (little) tip we gave him which was a couple of euros on a bill of 100 euro. We had no incidents during the night and it ended with the tip being thrown at my face,... More

Very nice atmosphere and good traditional dishes (my sanglier stew was tasty and tender). Was busy though and in spite of swift attendance the food was slow to come. But it was in the holiday period and the place was very busy!

A very nice Brasserie, we went there without reservation, but in less than 20minutes (just the time to drink a beer) we were given a table. Average prices (55/60€ for 2 beef fillet with mushroom sauce, with salad and of course french fries + 2 Duvel), big portions and kind waiters. I will definitely come back.

The waitress said we wouldn't be disappointed but we were. Small portion size and we were expecting tender meat but it was not - needed cooking for longer. Also food not piping hot. Very busy (fine) but servers couldn't cope and mistakes with menu and order made. Really looking forward to some traditional food and Belgium experience - I guess... More

Nice setting in the midst of the historic center of Antwerp this restaurant is a nice option to go for local cuisine. Rustic and cozy inside furnished in old wood, very friendly service and good food for a just price. Had the stoemp (local dish mashed potatoes with seasonal vegetables, Bacon and sausages) which was hearty and delicious. Also tried... More

Characteristic and relaxing place, where you can spend your cold and wet days . Typical food well cooked, extraordinary snails and good beer. With good friends you can spend splendid hours.
