Entering Grand Café Den Rooden Hoed (the red hat) through our seafood bar where you will see our fresh lobsters , oysters, sea urchins , opened for you on the spot. In addition to our seafood and fish specialties, you can also enjoy the classic Belgian meals that have been famous for decades here : choucroute d’ Alsace , steak tartare , escargot , rabbit and many more goodies.
Grand Café De Rooden Hoed (The Red Hat) catering is the oldest of Antwerp and has a very rich history . Even Quinten Matsys would have lived here . Recently this property was completely renovated and brought back to its former glory , both the outside and the inside , with a lot of respect for the past .
The French can be justly proud of their fine wines but we in “De Rooden Hoed” are also extremely proud in serving our fantastic Belgian beers . With each dish you can also find a matching beer , and an explanation why this beer is so perfect to go with your meal. For people who want to go for a nice glass of wine , we have a limited wine list , but the classics are present of course.
We have no posh and distant control service . No, on the contrary, our waiters and waitresses you are led by Cas Goossens, waiting with a smile and are really doing everything to ensure you have a pleasant , relaxed food and drink experience in “De Rooden Hoed”.
Hoppy greetings and hopefully soon in “De Rooden Hoed” ,
Cheers and see you soon
