After several attempts finally found this restaurant on the list TripAd. For some unknown reasons he went down in the ranking much, but was on the top some times ago.

The restaurant has a nice ambiance, but feels rather cramped - trying to squeeze in too many tables I suspect. The choice of food is very good, as is the quality of the food. The wait for the food did seem slightly longer than one might expect. It is a very popular place. The prices are on the high side,... More

Good bread but all the rest was plain. Poor soup, Spare Ribs "Chef Way" too sweat and bad smell of BBQ sauce, one you buy in supermarket. Not worth the high price.

Although not the cheapest of places in a city filled with great food and drinks.. We would definitely go again. Beautiful food and great ambiance, both for fish and meat lovers

It comes to something when the best thing about your meal is the bread. This was a strange and unsettling experience for me in that all signs pointed to great expereince but the food itself was terrible. The service was fine and helpful in that I was given a good table at a busy time. However the first course being... More

Although this restaurant is well known for its horse meat, none of us four ordered it. The place was really crowded when we got in and it seems we were lucky (after having made a reservation at 18.00h) to get a nice round table in front of the window (on the groundfloor). Just in front of the revolving staircase. My... More

The service is great, the atmosphere is exceptional and the food is to die for. Very European, my date had the horse and I had some fabulous aged beef. Great value for a great meal!

We went to eat with a large group here, on business purposes. The food was fine, as were the wines, although this restaurant suffers from the usual symptoms that an expensive restaurant has: small portions, rushed and somewhat snobby staff.

If you want great entrecote go there. The meat was cooked to perfection, so bleu, like I asked. The side fries were also very good. The lobsters in the tank looked apetizing, and I will visit them the next time I m in Antwerp....

Located in a centrally located but quiet pedestrian street, De Peerdestal has comfortable seating and an agreeable atmosphere. The rear half of the horse suspended in the air--not at all as disgusting as this sounds--and the pictures of cows hanging on the walls add to the pleasant feeling. Oh yes, the food was good, thd waiters friendly and the prices... More
