Most of the dishes are prepared with one of the local brewed beers. They call it a beercuisine.
In the restaurant you find many historic beer stuff, old machines, old merchandising and so on.
The downside is, that the restaurant is getting too populair, and they can't really deal with that amount of custumers. When we visited here in 2006, with Dannie and Rudy, the restaurant was filled up to its limits. They forgot to cook our maincourse and we had to wait for a long time. That is not very difficult in good company and with the beers, but it was not good. And when we got the bill there were several drinks from other tables (5 in total) on it. We knew for sure, because we didn't order coke or other soda (this is a brewery......)
Ofcourse we didn't have to pay for it, but if we hadn't pay attention to the bill it would have cost us over 10 Euro.
Favorite Dish: Try a vispannetje, a dish with different kinds of fish prepared in a Gouden Carolus Triple sauce.

This restaurant might not look appealing when you passe by...I just want to say , give it a shot.
The place has been here for years and looks a bit old fashioned. So is the food and that is what I like. No fusion things , no modern foetsy tootsy...just honest plain good food.
This restaurant has two parts . Where you enter is an ordinary 'frituur' , a tipical belgian place where they sell fries , sauces and tipical belgian snacks.
In the back on the left is the door to the restaurant part... a large spacious room with wooden pannels on the wall.
The service is a bit shy and intimate , the audience not the best mannered , but the food is absolutely great...
Favorite Dish: They got a really cheap menu : often 4 courses for less then 17 euro , dessert included.
-Mechelse koekoek with glaceed succory
I chose the suggestion...back of a hare with applesauce , peppersauce , fries and cranberrysauce (15,50 euro)

It has over 400 Speciality Beers. The place is long and dark with pleasant, ethnic (Celtic, Folk) background music. It backs onto the river Dijle. Den Stillen Genieter is open from 8pm until "last customer" each day; food is available throughout this time.

The food in this restaurant was great but the fact that they don't have a non smoking area, and we had to sit outside to escape the other guests smoke, was not good.
Luckely it was not very cold when we were there.
So be sure it is good weather and then book a table outside, or sit inside and smoke away......

Favorite Dish: The restaurant is run by a young ambitous couple (age 24) It is situated near Mechelen's fast growing industrial zone north.
Noon: International clientele
Evenings: Steady local clientele
The restaurant used to be a café, so the facade may not seem appealing , but inside it is very nicely decorated and a very pleasant restaurant to be in! We felt like honored guests.
The chef follows the rythm of nature and uses only the best products. His creativity makes even the dullest products jump right out of your plate. The taster's menu (proeversmenu) is recommanded by several culinary magazine/guides.
His wife is a good looking young lady, she knows about hospitality and ...wines. She has made a very good selection of priceworthy wines (try their housewine, priced 15 euro)
Definitly a must see/eat/drink !!!!

Fondue is actually a dish that is one of the Bourgondian traditions. A hot pot with oil is standing in the middle of the table and everyone has a sharp long fork to stick meat on and bake it in the oil. Besides that there are various sauces and vegetables.
Favorite Dish: Well, for me that would be the Bourgondian meat fondue
