I had rambled around talking about all the wonderful food in Antwerp and without planning we ended up in De Reddende Engel, which is located next to the awesome Cathedral of Antwerp. The interior was old fashioned or traditional Belgian, which was well suited in frame surrounding the cathedral and the premisses which date back to 1725. When we entered... More

We went here based on the guide book recommendation and were not disappointed. My boyfriend and I both had the set menu which consisted of four courses - every one delicious and very well presented. We had tuna, lobster, venison and sorbet. For €36.50 each it was very reasonably priced. The wine wasn't expensive either. The waitresses were very friendly... More

Had a wonderful meal with friends. Was expensive eating away from set menu but worth every penny, left feeling we had eaten a quality freshly cooked and delicious plate of food. My husband had lobster, best he had eaten in a long time. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed a very good meal in this old building near the cathedral. The food was well-presented and all delicious, the limited wine list not badly priced. Two sorts of foie gras on the starter menu, both excellent.

what a surprise! Real authentic cuisine and family service. Simple dishes, short menu, all signs of fresh food. Service is sometimes a bit messy. We will go back, for sure.

We were offered a table booked by our Hotel for a Saturday night. (extremely lucky) All I can say that the hosts at this delightful little place reminded me of being back in france 10 years ago. The menu is limited... but I prefer that... no reheated or bing bing meals here. I'll get straight to the point. My wife... More

The translation into English of this delightful restaurant's name is "The Saving Angel", which was quite appropriate. My friend and I were lucky enough to get a table on a recent Saturday night when it seemed like every place in downtown Antwerp was full. The affable host seated us and we were soon tucking into a terrific meal. I had... More
