M-eatery Revisit (Mechelen, Belgium)


The Place

M-eatery is a restaurant focused on quality grill food located in Mechelen, just in front of the NMBS train station. The restaurant is owned and managed by Pascal Van Himste en Mehdi Mathlouthi and they selected a young and dynamic team to cook and serve the guests.

The owners wanted to create a modern, no-nonsense restaurant where guests can discover a cocktail or a good glass of wine, with tasty snacks and dishes, and, of course, taste a delicious piece of grilled meat or seafood.


M-eatery is quite a big restaurant with a nice open kitchen, a beautiful glass cabinet with a Berkel meat slicer, and several dining compartments. The place boasts a modern interior with predominantly dark shades like black tables and black chairs. The interior was designed by Anneke Crauwels and Ariane Van Craen (ANA Architects) and nice touches such as a wall cabinet with wood logs provide warmth.

We revisited M-eatery in April 2016 and enjoyed the following dishes:

We started the meal with some nice cocktails, which were served with a kind of blood pudding with apple compote

The “Belgian Taste Buds” Experience

M-eatery remains a pleasant restaurant – and a must for meat lovers – when visiting the city of Mechelen. The concept is contemporary, the interior is cozy, the prices are correct, and the food tasty. See you soon!

    ben er een keer geweest, en ga het daar mee houden. Bedriegen kan maar niet met mij, de italiaanse Chianina is iets wat ik uit de 1000 ken, de wit-blauw ook. Finesse was ook een vierkante nul, neen niet tevreden
