A basic, spacious, unfussed, welcoming restaurant (and bar) offering what I'd call "farmhouse" cooking of regional dishes. Quiet, contented parties of locals were the main customers on a cold March evening. The stoemp was splendid, as was the rabbit stew and the pork hock. This isn't sophisticated, refined stuff (the salmon tartare was properly delicate, though). If you are tired... More

Tons of great beers. Waiter was friendly and the server was kind enough to write down some really great bars to go to after.

My husband and I stopped in for some afternoon drinks and snacks. We had a selection of wines and beer - all were great! We also ordered a salami plate and cheeses. All were really good and a hearty serving (even by American standards) ;) Will definitely recommend to others. The service was also really good and it seemed to... More

This place has all the local food you can wish for, and a great selection of Belgian beers. The complimentary dark bread they serve is moist and tasty. We had the stew, steak, salad, and pork, so sampled very different types of food, and all were great.

Brilliant food, good beer list, exemplary attention from the staff. The food was amazingly good and from either the specials or the standard menu.

We were excited to have dinner here, due to raving reviews on this website. It was very busy on Friday, but they we're very accommodating in finding us a table. We had beef stew and chicken, but we both left disappointed. The stew was alright - the meat was tender, but had no flavour. My partner only got 4 tiny... More

It was too cold for the courtyard in November but it was a pleasure to be inside this bar for an evening meal. The menu was perhaps a little limited but featured some excellent authentic Flemish dishes. As ever there was a fine range of beers available. A definite place to visit for either a beer or a meal.

One of the reasons for spending a few days in Antwerp was to sample some Belgian beers and of the bars we tried this was the best. A good and varied selection of bottled beers and decent ones on draught, all supped in comfortable surroundings and a delightfully unpretentious space. The service was diligent and helpful and whilst we didn't... More

The beer selection was great, and we enjoyed everything we ate. I still dream of the cheese croquettes. We actually came back the second night in hopes of more cheese croquettes but the kitchen had closed. Both nights the service was good, and we really appreciated our waiter's dry sense of humor.

Thank mandrid
