    We found this bistro through a travel website and the reviews were very good. Turns out they were all right! The place is small but very cosy, the staff is very friendly and the food excellent. Would come again!

    No daily fresh ingredients are used, so it is expensive for what you get.This was a very good restaurant a few months ago. We will not return anymore.

    Just arrived to town, looking for a comfortable spot to have local fair. We hit the jackpot! The service was perfectly attentive, the menu was varied. We had the shrimp croquettes, osobucco and the pasta trio. Everything was AMAZING! Top it all off with a delicious bottle of wine and we had the perfect dinner on our first night in Antwerpen. Thank you!

    We really enjoyed the delicious food at Bistro Jacob - generous portions, great flavours. A warm welcome, a decent cocktail to start and friendly, relaxed service.

    The bistro is a short walk from Centraal station so a good alternative to the places close to the station. This was our first night in Antwerp so we didn't realise that most people eat quite early compared to other cities. We booked for 21:00 and were the only customers by 21:15. The food was good, my friend's tagliata was perfect and my fish stew was delicious but I think it had been waiting a little while as it was a bit dried up.

    Compared to other restaurants in the area the interior was poorly decorated. Besides the bar, which was actually quite impressive, nothing fancy at all. There were two people working in the front, which I suppose were the owners. Both of them barely spoke any English which made communication difficult. Service was not great, we had to ask for drinks ourselves after waiting for 15 minutes since we first seated at our table. Not Salt or Pepper mill on the table, butter out of a plastic package. My food was fine, but my mother had a risotto, which had no seasoning at all. No flavor, none. For 24€ that cannot happen. Unfortunately we weren’t able to criticize in person due to the language barrier. Don’t want to be a meanie, but for that kind of money you definitely want something else

    Dear Tom, we're sad to hear that you didn't have a great visit to our restaurant. Due to the measures to fight againt the spread of the Corona-virus, we can't decorate the restaurant the way we did in the past. As for service, you made a reservation for 4 people, but you didn't come with 4 people, but with 3, so we thought that the last person was going to join you a little bit later, thaht's why we waited to take your order. And although our English is not perfect, we do our best to communicate with our customers.
