“Do not eat here - ever - period”
Reviewed 12 April 2013 via mobile

This place is good to have a beer or two. They have a nice list of beers, and the surroundings and atmosphere is nice in the authentic cellar.

The food is a different story though. The quality is horrible and the service is below any standard. They don't serve vegetarians, and if you try to ask anything that is not in their plan, staff gets annoyed and just walks away.

Therefore: do not eat here, only if you want to go home with stomach ache or experience the worst service ever.

“A cute place in Antwerp but...”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

I know this place since 20 years... Pelgrom features charme and warmth in a fantastic location.
Pity that last time I went - two weeks ago - I asked for famous belgian "Quack" beer, which is served in its unique glass for a very special drinking experience. Waiter first warned me with a never heard before "You know that in case you break the glass you will have to refund 10 Euro, do you?", to which I responded ok - thinking "we'll see should we get that far". Then waiter came with Quack bottles and 2 common "Oktoberfest-like" glasses; I asked where the Quack glasses were and waiter responded "you need to pay a security of 10 Euro per glass if you want them". I then asked to talk to the owner who confirmed the "customer-friendly" policy. Obviously I did not accept the deal and left the place.
I want to eat and drink in full relax, not with stress to have a discussion about status of used tableware. As long as this owner is in charge and applying such practices, this lovely place is stay-away for me.

“Really cute place”
Reviewed 12 December 2012

I loved this place, the food was tasty and their beer delicious. It's not 'a la carte' but it's also not priced that way. Good value for money in a very cosy environment, will be visiting again.

“friendly staff, average food and good beer”
Reviewed 30 November 2012

i had dinner here with a group of colleagues. the restaurant is underground/basement level and has a lot of atmosphere / ambience, however, the food is not fantastic. if you come here for a drink or snack then it is fine but for a dinner I would not hurry back. that being said the staff was very friendly and it was not expensive to eat there.
