An excellent ambiance. The food was tasty and plentiful. The service was attentive without being overbearing. Great location in the heart of the old town.

We spotted this beautiful looking restaurant while wandering through the streets of Antwerp and booked a table for the next night. We arrived on time at 8pm to find the foyer (standing room only) packed with people waiting for a table. We knew we were in trouble when they planted a free pink drink in our hands. We waited for...

The place is just beside the main cathedral of Antwerp. e had a nice dinner there on a cold rainy day. That was just an ideal place at that moment. At the entrance ou get a welcome drink. Even though it was full and we did not have any reservation, only 15 minute and we've already had a nice table.... More

8 of us descended here tonight and despite not being able to look up reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. The interior is very cozy and warm with lots of exposed brick walls and small rooms. The service is not fast but the servers are very nice and helpful. The mussels with cream sauce were absolutely delicsious and the portions huge.... More

One has to book to be sure of a place at this restaurant and such was the demand on the evening we visited we had to wait for a tale even though we had booked. There were many others waiting in hope of a table. It is a beautiful old building at the back of the cathedral and it has... More

Firstly, this is a gorgeous building, stunning. Food is interesting and they have two tasting menus. The food is good, probably better than good. I also thought that it was pretty good value for money. Staff were pleasant. Wine range is quite limited and also mainly new world, but it was fine. Lovely way to enjoy a winters evening.

Old style restaurant. Excellent menu. Efficient friendly service. Slightly more expensive than some other local restaurants. Stairs can be difficult to climb so if mobility a problem, then this could be a disadvantage, although they do have ground floor tables. I didn't notice a ground floor toilet - but didn't look for one either.

I think that this restaurant deserves higher ratings than it it has received on TA. We dined in a beautiful outdoor courtyard with a great view of the cathedral. The service was first rate - friendly and efficient, the food was excellent and nicely presented. We enjoyed our first meal so much that we made another reservation for the next... More

I showed the very friendly waitress a small piece of aluminum in one of the mussels, which where mostly closed, broken or over cooked shrunken. This was by far the most horrible pan of mussels ever served to me and my tablegast. Health inspector worthy if you ask me. In the end I didn't have to pay for it, but... More
