Outstanding fish restaurant in Antwerp - pretty central location on Marnixplatz. Simple no nonsense setting with a wide range of fresh fish. Menu changes daily and is displayed in Flemish on blackboards. Don't worry though, the young staff will translate everything.
Reasonably priced food and drink. Booking is a must. We went on a Tuesday evening and it was packed.
An old style house, close enough to walk to Antwerp city centre, visit museums and eat Belgian chocolates, while being the sort of place where you don't feel the need to go out. Each room is individually furnished so it feels your own - a terrace, a luxury bathroom with particular style. There are DVDs to enjoy and little touches of luxury; special bath salts, complimentary liquors and a fridge with champagne and wines. It feels private but welcoming. Breakfast is champagne on the house with varying home made treats which make it extra special. The hotelier is warm and friendly without being intrusive. It feels a mile away from home while being easy to get to, in a city unimpacted by tourists and where you can be yourself. Don't forget to enjoy moule frites, see Ruben's house, browse the old quarter, eat plenty of chocolates and go to Cafe Jazz for some live music with Belgium beer. Perfect!
Great snack and coffee house.
Very cosy with lots of vegetarian snacks and organic and fairtrade products. Plus the capuccino is great!
Den Engel is one of the oldest bars in Antwerp, very basic and patronised by the odd rum sort (not that it's dangerous or anything), like all good pubs should be. Like most bars in Antwerp it serves the local brew which is called De Konninck. Beers in Belgium are ordered by the name of the glass they are served in. In De Konninck's case it's a "Bolleke", a round glass which can be comfortably cupped - I think that says it all. To order one in pukka try "een bolleke alsjeblieft". The locals will appreciate the effort.
Dank u wel.
