Welcome in The Bistro

The Bistro is a timeless and pleasant brasserie-restaurant, situated on the Wapper, between the Meir and Schuttershofstraat. Our classic and inviting atmosphere offers a delightful escape from the city’s buzz. Have a seat in our leather banquette seating and admire our characterful interior with wooden panelling and antique brass details.

The menu features classic French-Belgian favourites such as Steak Tartare, Vol-au-Vent & Sole à la Meunière, along with English classics like Fish & Chips or the Full English Breakfast, as well as seasonal specialties including asparagus, mussels or satisfying game dishes. The Bistro is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or simply for a drink accompanied with pastries.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in our beloved fixture in the heart of Antwerp.
