A good place for our small meetings. Good food and friendly service. Located at the edge of a park, across the street from a large peripheral hotel, but not all that far from the Antwerp city center. Outside seating when the weather permits. A big plus is its own parking lot, but accessible by bus.

I had the worst experience so far.. the staff extremely racist with zero manners.. they treat the non Belgians like some kind of beggars or refugees.. just waiting to pounce on you with sly remarks. Even though our bills are more than the average Beligian, they take us for granted and behave like they are some kind of aristocracy. I... More

At the front of the 'Nachtegalen' Park, this restaurant offers 'honest' dishes with a Flemish twist. Very good service, nice environment and nice food!

Good food and friendly service. The Dikke Mee is also a good place for an informal meeting at the table. You will not be rushed. Ample free parking is a big plus.

This is a solid 4 star restaurant. It has a good menu, with a good selection. The staff give good service and that's the feeling you get about the whole establishment. It's not top class. It's not shishy. It's just a very solid dependable place that won't leave you hungry. Excellent dark bread with rye and other things in it.... More

A great place to meet friends or relax and unwind after visiting the attached musuem/park with free exhibitions. Great salads, lovely outdoor setting and good service. There is a lot of street noise from traffic at times but it quietens down after peak hour.

I remembered the Dikke Mee to be a great place for a nice lunch or dinner. After a long time I decided to try this place again, but it's absolutely not what it used to be. The food was lousy and the waiters tend to be nice at first, but they turn quite rude when you challenge them about your... More

Great restaurant and excellent Steak Tartar. Well presented with a variety of ingredients, fresh and tasty beef. Other dishes such as Rabbit is tasty too. Will certainly go back there on my next visit to Antwerp. Not well known to tourist since it is more a local restaurant at the entrance of Nachtegaal Park.

Nice restaurant on the Park. Good for a beer or coffee. Menu is good but not changed much over the years. However prices have gone up significantly. Decor in cool colours and preferred when walls were in a warmer red colour.

We had dinner here, the mussels were really good, had the thai inspired ones - nice atmosphere and they had a translated menu in English, we got a drink at the beginning - but there are loads of pillars and walls, so difficult to attract the attention of the staff.

Thank doodley
