excellent quality

We stopped ended up at this restaurant without any reservation for a lunch, at an ordinary work day. We had the "seizoens menu", which was great (including wine as much as you like). The choice of as well starters, mains, as deserts was good and varied. Also the service was smooth, friendly and... read more

Nice place and nice staff, but the food was not so good and furthermore expensive. We had some meat and some fish, the meat was just Ok, but if you pay 35 euro for a fillet you expect something special, the fish was really bad, bad cooking and bad taste.

We had two nice meals at this restaurant. I ate the smoked salmon, and my husband ate a steak. We had fantastic white asparagus. We came back a second time and I had some great scallops and my husband had excellent cod. De Peerdestal is located in the historic city center of Antwerp. It is walking distance from the market....

This restaurant is located in a busy and attractive part of the historic centre of Antwerp. We (3) received a good table at the front. The service was pleasant and relaxed. Warm welcome. The menu offers a lot of choice, both in set menus and à la carte. All 3 of us chose different starters and main course and were... More

Recommended by the concierge in our hotel; we had asked for local Belgian dining but this was slightly more fine dining/ expensive than we had expected. My judgement is made in that context. Smallish restaurant that is quite close to the centre of town. Quiet restaurant but reasonable atmosphere. Nice people serving and nice wine by the glass. Food was... More

De Peerdestal is an excellent restaurant in the city center of Antwerp, very close to the 'Grote Markt'. The menu is original and the courses are of an excellent quality. Don't expect nouvelle cuisine but traditional (and less traditional) French/Belgian cuisine of a very high quality.

Everything about this restaurant was ok, just not great. The food is ok. Interesting menu, good to have the option of horse steak. The scallop starter was good. Simple but done well. The horse steak I had was good quality meat but could have been cooked better. The doneness was right but there was no real sear on the meat.... More

We had a shocking experience here. I sent back the "Decadent burger" at 30 euros, because the bread was old hard and cheap, and I got a massive lump of gristle. It is the first time I have ever sent a meal back. I happily reordered a vegetarian option. By the time my partner had completely finished his meal, been... More

* Dry aged rib steak of my first choice unavailable, my second choice, a beef tenderloin was dessapointing, pan fried, under-cooked, the sauce was served on the plate and not in a saucer (though no extra charge), salad was poor (baby corns and beans) and the fries over-fried (brown) --> the price was fair --> 28.50 euros * The sole...
