When Antwerp didn’t have its cathedral it had but one monument: De Rooden Hoed. The oldest restaurant of Antwerp is restored to its full glory: the vintage interior is classy, the menu refined. Cod with mousseline sauce, lobster Belle-Vue with a pint of Duvel... By beer pairing dining here is a unique experience. You’ll remember it with a smile: it’s been lauded as the third most hospitable restaurant in Belgium.
Croquet bar Smaeck is new in Antwerp and has conquered many hearts (and stomachs) in a short period of time. Mainly, you go there for croquettes: you can choose from a variety of tapas with serrano ham, chorizo or rendang. There's also croquettes with beef, shrimp and even lobster. Or, you can go for the Smaeck special with cheese, veal and shrimp. For veggies, there is an extensive menu with Thai green curry, truffle and goat's cheese, always served with a fresh salad and bread. Don't confuse this croquet bar with a snack bar because Smaeck is a quality bistro. The wine is excellent and the interior is invitingly warm with natural wooden tables.
Meat lovers are spoilt with specialties such as horse meat or dry-aged beef ripened in our own dry ageing cabinet in the intimate Parisian retro atmosphere of historic premises. If you are fond of fish, you can select a lobster from the homarium or choose a succulent portion of mussels. Or perhaps you are tempted by our democratic all-in menu of the month reflecting the best seasonal ingredients.
Belgium's most swinging beach scene at the River Scheldt allows you to enjoy a succulent cut of meat, fish, our famous mussels or lobster. For a quick bite there are take away snacks, pizzas, tapas or ice cream. Come and relax on our covered terrace or experience the special summer events at the outdoor bar.
