If you are a big fan of fish and seafood, love trendy places for an affordable price you have to go to Fiskebar in Antwerp. I (Hunter Niels) tested this restaurant last week, and really enjoyed myself.
I went to Antwerp to party and shop, however a good dinner is always very important for me. Last time I was at Marnixplaats I went to Symforosa, which changed to my surprise from owners and now is called Soho. However back than, I promised myself to comeback very quickly to visit Fiskebar. The restaurant looks very cozy and chic and the display of fish proved the fish had to be very fresh. Regarding the crowd you can conclude it is a very popular place in Antwerp. Many well dressed people walked in, and lots of champagne bottles were popped. Besides this trendy atmosphere the prices are very reasonable. For €18,- you could have a main course. On the walls they have the menu’s. On the one hand they serve very basic fresh fish like lobster, tuna steak and all that kind of fish. But on the other hand they have daily specialties. These were absolutely splended. I had the swordfish with grilled vegatables and mash. My friend had seabass with a herbcrush on top, parmazan sauce and a mushroom risotto. Both were incredable delicious. With a bottle of white wine on the side, this was the perfect way to start our evening in Antwerp. Unfortunately we didn’t had time for a starter, nor dessert, but I can tell you the menu for those both looked great. Especially the king crab tartare sounded and looked promising. Definately a reason for me to come back very soon. Fiskebar, Marnixplaats 12, Antwerpen.
