    De Rooden Hoed: De Rooden Hoed

    A nice restaurant, fairly big, spread over two levels.

    Some say that it's the oldest restaurant in Antwerp. I don't know if this is true ... I wasn't born yet in 1750. :)

    The Rooden Hoed used to be famous for mussels & fries. Nowadays it offers a more inventive and modern cuisine although fish remains one of the main elements.

    Favorite Dish: They offer a market menu that changes regularly. It's a 3-course menu and - maybe we had bad luck - our menu in April 2005 was really not worth the money. Sorry!
    We had a small bowl of asparagus soup that didn't taste like asparagus (asparagus were at little expensive at that time, maybe that's why ...), main course was grilled sea bass with a jacked potato and one single tuft of garden cress. Desert was the only dish that could really please us: puff pastry with mascarpone and fresh strawberries.
    The price for this market menu was 30 euro (excl. drinks).

    ** I marked "somewhat unsatisfied", because the price/quality ratio was not what it should be.

    Address: Oude Koornmarkt 25-27, 2000 Antwerpen

    Directions: There are twoo entrance doors: one on Handschoenmarkt, opposite the entrance of O.L.Vrouwe kathedraal, one on Oude Koornmarkt.

    Rooden Hoed: Great for Mussels

    by Lomma Written Apr 5, 2006

    Freshly modernised restaurant in one of the oldest buildings by the cathedral.

    Went there for Moulles Frittes - Exellent choise.

    Favorite Dish: Only tried the moulles, but they had great selection of other fish dishes and meat.

    Directions: Near Big Market
