“Awful service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

The staff (especially Michael) is very uninterested and doesn't even look you in the face. They act bothered when you want to order. They dump your drinks on your table and roll their eyes when you ask for the check. They'll try to convince you to pay cash and roll their eyes again when you ask to pay with a debit card.

We've also noticed that they're rude to all other guests/paying customers.

Would have had dinner if the staff was friendlier.

“Beer interval while shopping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

Are you shopping at Antwerp shops street? Need some rest? This is a good place to have a nice beer or white wine, resting a while with the sun warming you up. The food is good, although you could get better service. But it is ok if you not in a hurry.

“Enthousiast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

After a day of shopping and sightseeing, this is a very nice place to have diner (near Stadsschouwburg Parking).

The place was pretty crowded when we came in, but a 10 minute wait brought us to a comfortable table with lots of privacy.

Good service
A very good diner for an even better price we were all set at less then 80€ for 3.

A very nice closing of a familyday in Antwerp!

“Poor service! Food is alright but you could probably get better value elsewhere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014 via mobile

Service is slow. Food is alright but for 10 euros you could probably get something much better. Would probably not go out of the way for the Bistro and would probably not come back either.

“Very good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

I visit this restaurant every time I'm in Antwerp. Large portions, tasty and pretty quick. Try kabeljiew, lasagna and turkey with curry sauce. The only thing I don't like (which is in many restaurants in Antwerp) is a charge of 40c in WC. Our people are not used to it. Overall it was great and I strongly recommend it!
