superb wine and cocktail lists, mainly seafood-based menu. Staff friendly and attentive without being too 'in your face'. food was slightly tasteless and either over salted or totally under-seasoned. most people at the table had warm food however my dishes arrived cold.

The interior of these restaurant is really nice, French bistro-style with very high ceilings, located in an old, remodeled house. The multiple-course dishes were very tasty and the service personnel is kind and friendly. To be recommended as well for special occasions.

Hardly worth the visit. Half the food of our 5 course was cold and it took forever to serve. The food was uneventful and hardly worth the wait. The wine was decent although the white lacked body. The staff took forever to find so all in all it was an experience i wont be repeating any time soon.

A threecourse meal costs 35 euro. The optional white and red wine that comes with it costs 20 euros. Much too expensive: you get better value-for-money by choosing a bottle or a glass from the winelist. BTW 7 euros for a glass of good cava is way over the top. Service was friendly, food was average to good.

We were in Marcel restaurant together with friends who go there frequently. They offer 2 set menus on a Saturday evening, but are flexible if you want some of their classics. Scallops carparcio as a start was superb! The main dish was also fish for us - light and delicious on a hot summer evening. Instead of the normal menu... More

We made a reservation for surprise birthday dinner. During the day, whilst driving the car, we received a telephone call from the restaurant via the speaker to ask if we were still planning to come. Duh??? yes ofcourse, we were celebrating a special occasion! So gone was the surprise as the birthday person was also sitting the car. Once arriving... More

Marcel, Antwerp The decor's nice......but the staff are indifferent and the food, at any price, not just at this eye-watering expense, is absurd. It was the second evening of the not-very-bright boys' Antwerp road trip (see other review from a 'twerp resto) and our heroes, paying heavily for their previous night's excesses, were feeling delicate. Not too delicate however to... More
