Right opposite Mechelen central station is the strikingly contemporary façade of brasserie Maroon, an excellent address for a full-scale meal or simply a chat over a drink with friends or family. Our talented young chef Sonja Elskens prides herself on her Franco-Belgian brasserie food. You will certainly find something to your taste on our extensive menu, from beautifully presented snacks to seasonal suggestions. Terrace & WIFI.


Mechelaars love their food and you only really get to know the people when you eat what they eat! In the heart of the vegetable-growing region there is always something to make you lick your lips! But if the Mechelaar might give you a tip, try the city’s most famous speciality: an absolutely delicious ‘Mechelse koekoek’, the native chicken, washed down with the local beer, the Gouden Carolus. Mechelen at its best.
