Yes, unfortunately one of my favourite restaurants, a few steps from my home, shut down definitely last month (December 2014). The original owner, an iconic figure in Mechelen, died last year in a car accident and his son, who took over, just finished the job.

The Restaurant Martinique has a nice location at the Korenmarkt. First the service by one person was effective, friendly and correct. The card has a great selection of meals and has been served in time. But with our selection we missed out couscous with the African (Marocco) meal and only one sauces was served with the mussels. But the atmosphere... More

We were staying in the area for the weekend and tried but failed to get a table here the previous evening. The single member of staff that greeted us was courteous and welcoming, we were seated towards the back of the restaurant but would have preferred the front if space was available and were quickly recommended an aperratife of Cava...

On a Saterday night during my stay in Mechelen for business decided to go for dinner on my own in this restaurant. Was seated at 7:45pm. I ordered a starter and a main. The starter arrived after 20 mins. Knowing that I had a late conference call to attend with an overseas office at 9:30pm for work that night, I... More

The personnel was very friendly. Further I was disappointed throughout the diner. We got a mix of first dishes of which some were good from taste, but they didn't match together at all. Fish, meat, tomato soup,... really a mix. When the main dish arrived you could not tell this was prepared by a professional cook. The fish and scallops... More

The food was not that great. Portionwise probably ok but not that tasty. I wouldn't recommend. Luckily the staff was very friendly.

We chose to eat in this restaurant during a one night stay in Mechelen at the end of a touring holiday. We spent some time trying to find a good looking restaurant with reasonable prices, not easy in this town, where Moules et Frites sell for 22 or 23 Euros! Our first impression was that the restaurant looked good from... More

Wednesdays are bad days to eat in Mechelen, with many restaurants closed. In addition, the center of Mechelen has not many restaurants, especially compared to similarly-sized (and smaller) cities in Belgium (of which there are many). It is against this lack of local competition that I rate this restuarant as very good. The place is certainly very clean, and the... More
