Have been there for a beer with friends. You visit Belgium with high expectations on beers and here I was served with a very bad one; they have few options and no craft beer at all! Worst thing was the service: while a kind guy bring us to the table a very rude one took the order. He waited a... More

Great cafe with amazing interior serving good food and a wide range of Belgian beers as well as a good range of other beverages. Nice central location right by the Cathedral. Efficient friendly staff. A must do when in Antwerp. Highly recommended.

This cafe/bar is worth going to for a drink just to check out the over-the-top religious artefacts stuffed all around the bar and cafe -- you must go inside for a peek. We had planned to stay for a meal, but were put off by the obnoxiously loud young couple at the table next to us. Instead we had a... More

As you enter this bar ,you notice all the eccentric religious items on view,and to be honest ,there was to much for me,but my twin brother thought it... More

We found this spot by walking by in ANtwerp in a very deserted Monday evening. The place was overwhelming, with hundreds of statues of saints and other figures as decoration. There was a single girl serving, very good attitude and very polite. They had trappist beer, which was all I was after, but we tasted a very decent tomato soup... More

The athmosphere was great. A pub full of statues of religious characters combined with some sexist art. Unfortunately the food was dissapointing. DO not order the eel; you get a couple of pieces of tasteless fish and a salad. The beer was also overpriced

Positives.....great location, interesting decor, ok food Negative - the service was hilariously bad. I thought that they were understaffed but realized that the waiter was lazy. He was sitting way from the restaurant smoking and on his phone while table after table waited for service. We waited for the menus, to place our order, for our drinks, for our food,... More
