Dropped in here for dinner and a few beers. Was quite busy, and they only had one barperson working, so service was very slow. Beer list was solid, lots of choice good prices. I ate the meatball with cherry, which was good, they also had pasta and a couple other Flemmish dishes to chose from.
Worth a visit for sure.

A very good pub, always grate food made with beer and at very desent price. Always choise out of 3 main courses with beer. Also a changing tap. Also the place to find the beer Zeppelin on bottle special made for this pub

Reasonably-sized place with interesting decorations. Almost completely empty on a Saturday evening, which made it feel a bit characterless.
The beer list is not terribly extensive, but has some special beers (like the Zeppelin by Steenberge). I wouldn’t consider this place a must.
They have food, but we weren’t tempted by the menu and went elsewhere. The service was OK.

Was there sept 2006. Although classified as a Restaurant on this site, this is as much a pub as about all other places classified as Bar. This is more a pub that serves food than a restaurant that serves beer. Not easy to find, not a place you’d just walk by as a tourist. Amazing setting, a truly beautiful pub with a very cool kind-of-patio in front. Relative to belfium the beer list is rather small, less than 100 bottles. Although small the selection is interesting with some unusual beers. There’s also an exclusive beer (Zeppelin brewed by Van Steenberge) that is really worth trying. I had diner there. Food was ok but not great, I got my money’s worth. Friendly service. A must if you’re in the city.

Probably the surprise packet of our recent Benelux jaunt. I hope my positive views of this place are not tainted by the fact it was the first place we found that actually had Westy in stock. Comfortable layout, almost English tavern style inside, and a fantastic beer garden out front. As others have stated the beer list is focussed and very well priced (all Westy under e5.0). As the great man said ’do yourself a favour’. 6 taps and ~100 bottled offerings. Food menu looked solid is unspectacular (pasta e6.0, omlettes e4.0). Service above average.

Solid biercafe all around. Excellent setting, excellent design, wonderful food. I had the spinach soup, some coffee, and an order of olives for around €5-6. The only beer I tried was Zeppelin, which is supposedly made specifically for this cafe. It’s a bit of a walk, but it was good to travel through the university district and see some more interesting restaurants and shops in the area. Worth visiting.

Quite nice atmosphere, and even has a non-smoking back room (the personnel was smoking in there, though). We were the only customers there in a friday afternoon. Friendly staff. Not the greatest selection quantity-wise, but has all the essentials and a few house beers. Worth a visit.

this is a bit off the beaten path in a small square but definately worth the pillage. cool outside courtyard area and awesome old wooden bar. we had several westvleteren blondes and a boon marriage parfait served in the appropriate basket. huge cheesplate as big as your head. highly recommend.

I found this bar by coincidence, wandering through Antwerps streets. Situated a bit hidden on a square, ths bar offers a completely own atmosphere, with some locals (couples mostly) sitting outside, and a man was drawing or painting, probably inspired by the nice setting and/or the good Belgian beer in front of him. I went inside and saw a pretty empty, but cosy bar. Selection seemed very OK, I was helped well, but as I mentioned, there were not a lot of people around. To me it seemed like a nice beerbar, with a very proper beerlist and a nice atmosphere. Probably hard to find for tourists. That’s cool.
