We were lucky enough to get a table for two, last minute by calling up on the evening we went. This place is popular and for good reason, so I would suggest you booked well in advance! My prawn main was a good sized portion and very flavoursome. They were cooked in lots of delicious butter, so if you don't... More

I've been to the Pottekijker several times and the food has always been honest and pretty good....service has been a little lack-lustre, but then if you have patience it's worth waiting for...if you're seated upstairs be ready for a fairly rickety climb up, as I recall....well worth a visit!

Good service. Polite staff. Great meet. But the salad that came with the meet was amazing. Something that I wouldn't have expected.

I was here with my fiancee and our two friends. We all really enjoyed our meals and and drinks. We'd asked for a nice table upstairs in the reservation and that's exactly what we got. It's a beautiful little place. Very nice atmosphere, lively and bustling despite there being room for only about 40 people. The service was great. It... More

My wife and I picked "De Pottekijker" for our dinner place tonight and it turned out to be an excellent choice. We had no reservations but arrived early and were able to get a nice table. The place filled up completely ( and this was a Monday night we're most other restaurants were quite empty). We ordered a nice Malbec... More

Recommended place if you're a meat lover. Went for the mixed grill, I can only say LOVE! I loved it. Have had mixed grills before, but this one beats them all. Large drinks for average price. Only the fries are meh, could be more crispy. Lovely place with great service. Only the wait for the receipt took forever, even though... More

While the place itself is a charming European bistro and the service friendly, helpful and efficient. The food I'm afraid is not. To be clear, it's not bad, just average. We went for a mixed grill (a bit of everything). The chicken was bland, but at least was moist, the beef short rib was tough, but tasty. The ribs were... More

As our last night in Antwerp we spent many hours researching which restaurant to visit to get the authentic Belgian Cuisine experience. In the end we picked this place because it was near to where we were stood and looked good! When we arrived we were seated (up in the rafters) even though it was VERY busy and we hadn't... More

Babies not welcome here. Despite having a booking and mentioning we have a small baby, we were refused entry and asked to leave. No room at the inn during the festive period! Happy new year.
