Seafood Restaurant
“The best Fish restaurant in town located in 10 minutes walk on a trendy and hype Marnixplaats with lots of small nice bars and really nice atmosthere in the evening. "Vers, duurzaam en pure smaken in een gezellige en ontspannen sfeer. Fiskebar werkt uitsluitend met Europese vis en schaaldieren; elegante bordjes, seizoensgebonden lokale biogroentjes en een uitgebreide wijnkaart."”

“Nice historic warehouse. You can walk from Waaslandtunnel through the building until Godefriduskaai. You can visit the 'stadsarchief' to have a closer look. You may also eat at the restaurant downstairs with a nice big terrace near the water.”

Restaurant
“We are super lucky to have this cozy restaurant just right next door! Mampoko serves very traditional flemish food with good price, good portion, and quality taste. They also have a lovely terrace where we always see people having a drink or a meal. It's really the spot where locals go. They also have quite nice brunch on weekends. Please make sure to make a reservation as this place can be packed especially on weekends. This is the number one restaurant I would suggest people to go as it's a very relaxing place with good quality and price. And it's just next door so it's a good choice, especially you feel a bit tired from the day and just want to eat something nice without much effort. ”

Restaurant
“This is a Turkish restaurant located in Zuid. I don't know what authentic Turkish food tastes like as I haven't been to Turkey. But from the amount of people sitting in the restaurant and my "addiction" to their food, I'd say you would come back for that! The great location also allows you to enjoy some late afternoon sunshine and the beautiful surroundings in Zuid. ”

Coffee Shop
“This place has really delicious brunch and you'll see locals on the bikes on a Sunday noon biking there. You can either sit outside on the square or inside of the shop. It's also super close to our apt - 2min's by bike and 5min's by walk. My favorite dish is pancake with bacon and banana! They also have very good coffee there. If you have a high standard towards your coffee, then this place won't disappoint you. One thing to note is that they don't take reservations. But they do have seats outside for people who are waiting.”
