We were excited to have dinner here, due to raving reviews on this website. It was very busy on Friday, but they we're very accommodating in finding us a table. We had beef stew and chicken, but we both left disappointed. The stew was alright - the meat was tender, but had no flavour. My partner only got 4 tiny... More

It was too cold for the courtyard in November but it was a pleasure to be inside this bar for an evening meal. The menu was perhaps a little limited but featured some excellent authentic Flemish dishes. As ever there was a fine range of beers available. A definite place to visit for either a beer or a meal.

One of the reasons for spending a few days in Antwerp was to sample some Belgian beers and of the bars we tried this was the best. A good and varied selection of bottled beers and decent ones on draught, all supped in comfortable surroundings and a delightfully unpretentious space. The service was diligent and helpful and whilst we didn't... More

The beer selection was great, and we enjoyed everything we ate. I still dream of the cheese croquettes. We actually came back the second night in hopes of more cheese croquettes but the kitchen had closed. Both nights the service was good, and we really appreciated our waiter's dry sense of humor.

Central location, excellent service, charming atmosphere, really nice quiet room with very accommodating staff. Vanja had the traditional Antwerp Stoemp: a potato mash with vegetables and ham with a sour bite. It was tasty. Wouldn't have it again, but a good experience I had the tomato meatball soup. That was outstanding. I asked for a taste of the fillet d'anvers... More

De Groote Witte Arend is in the old centre of Antwerp. The inside of the restaurant is rather plain and functional, but you can eat on old wooden tables in a lovely atmospheric courtyard. There is a reasonable selection of beers and the menu, although limited has some very good Flemish dishes. Reasonably priced and good value

This is an old building situated quite close to the Groenplaats, the major public transport hub of the old city centre. I am lead to believe that the building was a former convent and still has the chapel that can be viewed. The restaurant surrounds a courtyard which if the Sun is shining is a Sun trap, where temperatures can... More
