Lewis Our Favorite Casual Restaurant in Antwerp

Our favorite casual meal on our Belgium trip was at Lewis. The king crab with espelette pepper and butter is probably the best crab we’ve ever had. The entrecôte and pork dishes were rich and delicious main courses. The spaghetti with buttermilk, dill oil, and puffed buckwheat was a light and refreshing take on a noodle dish. And you can’t leave without ordering the signature Tompussy, a wordplay on the Dutch “tompuce,” although Lewis’ version of the dessert uses salted caramel and banana instead of the traditional vanilla. Lots of fun wines here, too!
