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

Almost unadvertedly ended up in this little restaurant right next to the Antwerp cathedral in the old town while looking for a place to dine. The food was simply sublime as was the setting with the view and ringing bells from the cathedral during the whole meal. In the midst of a mediocre gastronomy offer from the touristic restaurants around... More

This restaurant serves really excellent french cuisine for a reasonable price. I have been here multiple times, food is just great! Simple, but so full of flavor! You go here for the food, because the interior is really outdated and full of weird decorations. But don't let that scare you, and try their special of the house, traditional french bouillabaisse...

This place has quite a confusing menu, the set menu's are really cheap at 29 euro of 36euro for 3 and a half courses. If you want something outside of the set menu, it becomes extremely expensive at more than 21 euro for a starter. The champagne was sickly and overpriced and the food really wasn't that great. The atmosphere... More

Basically, if you have food allergies, DONT GO! Because the waitress obviously couldnt be bothered enough to listen to me when I pointed out right away that I had several food allergies and which specifically they were, I ended up being served a soup with an ingredient I had told her beforehand I am allergic too. Only after I had... More

This was the high point of our recent trip to Antwerp. De Reddende Engel has a relaxed, almost downbeat atmosphere where diners can really enjoy themselves and feel at home. We had one of the set menus and each course surpassed the one before. Two charming women presided over our meal -we felt that we were enjoying their hospitality. They... More

My brother and I were directed to this charming place by our friends, the owners of Wijnbar Vigneto. We were cordially greeted upon arrival and began our evening with a glass of Champagne. The menu was classic French cuisine and making a selection was difficult but with the help of the server;s suggestions, I settled on tourchon of foie gras... More

We had dinner outside and were served by the wonderful chef. Most amazing French food, every detail was lovely, every flavor was exceptional. The atmosphere outside and inside is beyond charming, even the bathrooms had a lovely huge window with a view of the cathedral. We started and ended the evening at Vigneto down the street, and they sent us... More

There were 6 of us for dinner and a lot of "sampling" went on between us all. Everything was delicious, expertly prepared and beautifully presented. Located in the heart of old Antwerp, tucked away in the shadow of a beautiful cathedral, De Reddende Engel is a treat for all the senses.
