Need a nice lunch place near Centraal station

Looking for a casual cafe/restaurant close to Centraal station or the Plaza hotel where we can go for a nice lunch with our 6 month baby. no fuss- no frills and baby friendly. local cuisine preferred. also looking for a good waffle later!

thanks

Central Station / Plaza Hotel is very near the Jewish quarter. There's a very good Jewish restaurant called Hoffy's at Lange Kievitstraat 52. It's absolutely nothing fancy but the food is good. You choose what you want to eat at the counter after which it will be freshly prepared for you. As you will understand, it's not Belgian/Flemish cuisine.

Another one that recently opened, local cuisine, is Brasserie Gustav on the corner of Van Ertbornstraat / Rooseveltplaats. Haven't been there myself yet but it gets good reviews.

There aren't a lot of good casual restaurants in the Central Station area. The only ones that I know are good are rather upmarket: Gran Duca at the Hyllit Hotel and Ellenbee which is mainly for business people.

Hi there...

Of course, you got a lot of good places to eat and dine, here in Antwerp.

It's also very difficult to say "that's a good place" because every person got a different taste...

However...

Waffles... that's not so difficult..;-))

Désiré de Lille, in the "Schrijnwerkersstraat", close to the "Grote Markt" and "Meir".

Enjoy!!!!

We went to Hoffys today. It was 47 euros for two. A little pricey for lunch but perhaps Antwerp is pricey everywhere. Food was very good. Wife had stuffed cabbage. I had fish.

47 euro is a pretty good price for a meal for two. Antwerp restaurant prices are indeed pretty expensive, e.g. compared to Brussels.
