If you are looking for hot chocolate cake in Antwerp, do visit this place. They really have other good desserts as well. Nice place. Good service.

I love going to the Walrus for lunch. The food is honest and good value for money, the setting cosy and the staff very kind. Despite not taking my father that often, when I do, the staff always remember his special needs and help out. They do a daily dish for 10,- euro but their a la carte options are... More

Sunny evening, we did not book in advance, lucky we arrived before the rush and could get a place on the terrace. Ordered 2 kid portions of vol-au-vent and 2 adult portions of mussels. When they served the kids menu, I thought they had made a mistake and brought the adult version. Not the typical "kiddy" version but a nice... More

Very friendly service indeed. Suggestions (papardelle with river lobster) and main menu courses (salads/stew with french fries) are cooked to todays standard, nothing more, nothing less. For a fair price. Bistro for daily purposes.

Thank Marko B
