Marble counters tops and gold-highlighted décor
The setting is an old post office building and the dining areas are former post office counters. There are marble counter tops, gold-highlighted décor and suspended lighting with plants to admire. You’ll eat at long communal tables, so if you’re looking to meet locals or other tourists, this is the place to be.
Mercado hosts several events and there’s live music regularly (weekends). Check Mercado’s website for more information.
Mercado is unique in its kind. It’s a must-see/must-do when you visit Antwerp.
