Back on track after a decade in the doldrums. Used to come here 20 years ago as it was one of the few places to drink Westvleten - they no longer have that but the beer list is better than it has been for years and the ambiance is lovely. The foodís not bad either. Back to being one of Antwerpís essential visits.

Went there for dinner to eat and offcourse looked at the beermenu and tried som beers. the beer list goes from standard every day stuff to the little bit more refined beers and beers from smaller brewerys, some to name, De Ryck, Boon, 3 fonteinen, etc ... just the every day good stuff !! doesnít always have to be extremly special !!
Anyway , the waiters were very friendly and very fast, food was also served fresh , hot very fast and it was surprisingly good ! itís not a haute cuisine restaurant , but more like a speciality brasserie/tavern restaurant, bit more class than some regular brasseries/taverns, allot of beer or beer related found in the ingrdients of the platters, i for example had Orval Cheese Croquette, and a Stew made with De Koninck beer , really delicious and a serious bite too ! you wont leave this restaurant with an empty stomach.
Restaurant itself is main flour and upper flour pretty big with lots of seatings and a nice patio right at the entrance/main gate. Prices are very cheap when you know you get allot , i myself had a Mariage parfait, starter, main course and dessert and payed little over 30Ä so thatís pretty damn good !
This is a place iím going to visit again for sure , and if anyone out there who comes visiting Antwerp wants to know a place for eating typical Belgian Special Cuisine / Beer Cuisine , then this is the place to be !

Lovely place in a beautiful old building with a fantastic courtyard. Certainly my favorite place to eat in Antwerp (the beef stew is probably the best Iíve had). The beer selection isnít extensive, but thereís certainly some nice options.

We enjoyed a nice Belgian meal here as we ducked in out of the cold winter wind. The warm food paired very well with our big, malty ales. The upstairs boasts a comfortable lounge while the main level is all business - food and beer. Our service was pretty good and we left with happy food and beer thoughts. This is a good meal spot when in town and is away from the tourist areas.

My first stop in Antwerp was here for some food and a couple of beers. While the list is not extensive youíd be hard pressed to come away without something that agrees with your palate. The prices for beer are very fair considering the location. Tucked away in a courtyard on a side street it also gives you a chance to get away from some of the hustle and bustle. If you still need a reason to come here I believe one of the beers on tap is an exclusive.

Nice atmospheric place just off the beaten path. Cozy courtyard and traditional woody interior. Decent enough beer list. Food is above average. Worth a visit.

Nice place, good selection of beers and very nice food. When the sun is out, the courtyard is just amazing with nice athmosphere and great (classical) music

Visited October 2009. Lovely restaurant with very good service from young staff. Interesting beer selection, although the two draught Arend beers I had, Blond and Kriek, were less than satisfying. I assume these are De Ryck beers but not absolutely sure as "Arend" is also part of the name of the restaurant and itís possible they are house brews from somewhere else. Also had bottled Lustem. I had eaten here about 4-5 years before and had one of the best dishes Iíd ever had, called Chef Scampi. This is no longer available so perhaps that chef has moved on. I had a shrimp dish as a starter that was quite good but the Rabbit in Westmalle Sauce tasted too much like chicken in gravy to me. Wish I had gone for the Meatballs in Gueuze with Liege Sauce.
