    Den Anker, Restaurant.

    This restaurant on the Grote Markt is located close to the Lakenhallen and Stadhuis with its nice floral decoration. It’s a house in the typical Flemish style with a large terrace where you can eat and drink. I found the inside decoration not so fine.
    I choose the restaurant because it serves "paling in het groen - anguilles au vert" (eel) which I like. It's difficult to find eel in the shops; they have to be sold alive and one has to cut their head and strip them of their skin just before cooking what is no fun with these slippery animals.
    My wife knowing about this cruelty preferred "harmonie de coquilles St Jacques et crevettes".
    Both dishes were very good. Prices 21 - 23 €. There were also mussels (jumbo quality) at 21 € for a "casserole" (= 1 Kg). Mussels are of very good quality this year!
    A fair selection of wines and beers as well as small dishes at reasonable prices.
