Welcome in our restaurant

Restaurant Het Nieuwe Palinghuis in Antwerp has been a fixture and reference for fresh, quality fish since 1983. Chef Erik Haentjens and his partner Gonda Vanhulle together make sure that you always feel like a fish in the water (dutch expression - to make you feel at ease).

Het Nieuwe Palinghuis is charmingly and rustically furnished with a nod to the past of Antwerp and its harbor. The restaurant is also located in one of the oldest catering establishments in Antwerp. You can enjoy a delicious extensive dinner, a fresh lunch or a quick bite after shopping. A quick and efficient service and the generous smile of the patron complete the whole picture! Make sure you take a look at the wine list to discover the wide range of New World wines.
