I love Dock’s Café! It’s centrally located near the river ‘De Schelde’ in the heart of Antwerp. The interior is just as fine as the food they serve. The interior was designed by a Portuguese architect and is worth a visit on its own.
Dock’s Café is famous for it’s oyster bar. They have a wide selection of oysters, a delicacy which I’m very fond of. When we get a restaurant voucher from aunts or uncles, I like to pay a little bit extra and order 3 or 4 courses with selected wines. It’s really worthwhile but you can just as easily go for a fixed price lunch menu.
They have a set amount of dishes on the menu, which is a guarantee for fresh food. I like to start out with oysters or some other seafood. Then maybe a starter like marinated salmon. As a main course there are a couple of meat or fish dishes to choose from. Not so expensive and quite tasty are the dishes with Bresse chicken.
For dessert, I’ll have a ‘Dame blanche’ ice cream. Quite simple but Dock’s serves theirs with homemade ice cream, chantilly cream and top quality chocolate for the sauce. Heaven!
