Restaurants in Antwerp

Restaurants in Antwerp

The people of Antwerp have a long-standing reputation as connoisseurs. Thanks to the port, all kinds of foods, drinks, herbs and spices from all over the world have been introduced since as early as the 16th century, influencing the city’s gastronomy. Today, Antwerp offers a wide range of European, exotic and of course Belgian eateries. Many restaurants serve French cuisine, but with Belgian touches. Most restaurants are located around the historic centre, Het Zuid and Het Eilandje.

Vlaeykensgang

Vlaeykensgang

The secret Vlaeykensgang alley dates from 1591 and connects Hoogstraat, Oude Koornmarkt Pelgrimstraat with one another. Walk through the gate at Oude Koornmarkt 16 and you feel as if you have journeyed back in time. In the past this alley was where the shoemakers and the poorest people in the city lived. The shoemakers were also in charge of sounding the alarm bell of the cathedral. These days you can find antiques stores and art galleries here as well as the exclusive restaurant Sir Anthony Van Dyck. The atmosphere is very intimate which is why many people also like to come here to listen to the carillon concerts during the summertime.
