Each time I am visiting Antwerp (and I do it quite often), I go for lunch at The Bistro. While I love its central location and welcoming ambience, it is the traditional Flemish cuisine that draws me there. I recommend to try the rabbit with...More

Good value for money!! I come here when I feel like eating something Flemish. We have also spent 3 New Years' Eve with friends. The food is very good, with interesting combinations of sweet and sour (eg meats with fruits) and various mushrooms in the...More
