“Nice historic warehouse. You can walk from Waaslandtunnel through the building until Godefriduskaai. You can visit the 'stadsarchief' to have a closer look. You may also eat at the restaurant downstairs with a nice big terrace near the water.”

“We are super lucky to have this cozy restaurant just right next door! Mampoko serves very traditional flemish food with good price, good portion, and quality taste. They also have a lovely terrace where we always see people having a drink or a meal. It's really the spot where locals go. They also have quite nice brunch on weekends. Please make sure to make a reservation as this place can be packed especially on weekends. This is the number one restaurant I would suggest people to go as it's a very relaxing place with good quality and price. And it's just next door so it's a good choice, especially you feel a bit tired from the day and just want to eat something nice without much effort. ”

“This is a Turkish restaurant located in Zuid. I don't know what authentic Turkish food tastes like as I haven't been to Turkey. But from the amount of people sitting in the restaurant and my "addiction" to their food, I'd say you would come back for that! The great location also allows you to enjoy some late afternoon sunshine and the beautiful surroundings in Zuid. ”
