The neighbourhood is not great but therefore the food is worth the detour. It is possible to have drinks, appetizers in the garden. We really enjoyed every single bite of our meal ! Not one minus !

I am reviewing Matty once again and this time after having had lunch and dinner here eigth times now. This restaurant is simply the best that I have been to. This includes several Michelin star restaurants. They don't even come close. Everything about this restaurant is fabulous. The ambiance, decor, service and of course the awsome food.

In a perfectly beautiful setting, anyone can enjoy the original cuisine of Matty. However nice the setting, the ambiance is totally relaxed. It's family friendly, nice to spend time with your friends and perfect for bussiness dinners and luncheons. I've been coming here for about 7 years and I'm always over the moon about the food, the wine and the... More

Not in the most fancy street , but worth to be discovered. Excellent cuisine , acceptable prices , and a very warm service by the lady of the house. The chef presents the menu himself and lets place to some changes , if desired. The wines are also of good choice.

Very fine food and good wines. The "marktmenu" is just perfect for lunch and their diner menu is even better, espescially with the matching wines.

Running this restaurant for 7 years now, owner Matty and his wife keep their standards high and their service casually professional. When presenting the menu, Matty proactively asks about special requests or wishes to be considered - much appreciated when your group of 6 counts a veggie and a preggie. The food is delicious, the wine perfectly paired and I... More

Very friendly welcome by the owners. Although the color white is dominant, there is a nice and cosy atmosphere. Asking for a table in the front room is advisable. Eating à la carte is not promoted here, the set menu is almost forced on you which is a pity. The menu was albeit tasteful and well balanced. Unfortunately the entrecôte... More

Not easy to find, it is not in a tourist area .... but the detour is worth it. Every time. The price/quality ratio is excellent, unlike many restaurants in Antwerp. Service is so friendly and welcoming. Don't miss if you are in to fine cuisine.
