It sounds a bit odd, but the oldest restaurant in Antwerp just opened up. Obviously I’m talking about a renovation, about new owners that decided they wanted to give ‘De Rooden Hoed’ its charm and attraction back. The legendary restaurant in Antwerp’s city center was first opened in 1750 and got famous for its mussel and fish specials and local dishes. More than 250 years later the restaurant still wants to please fans of good food. And especially fans of crustaceans! The eyecatcher in the new and improved De Rooden Hoed undoubtedly is the brand new marble oyster bar.

So much more I could tell you about this brand new age old restaurant. But I’m getting hungry, which means I’ll just show you some pictures. Oh, and one more piece of information: the restaurant is closed on Monday’s and Tuesday’s.

Bon appétit!
