Very good restaurant - Special (unique) location

This restaurant is located somewhere in the "old port" ... 10 to 15 min. by taxi from center of town. In front of the restaurant there is an old fire station in and on which The Port of Antwerp is building new offices (see site www.interbuild.be/projects/nieuw-havenhuis ...), within a few months... read more

'Het pomphuis' is a great restaurant in the old city of Antwerp. It's situated near the beautiful river 'The Scheldt'. The building is an architectural masterpiece. It was built in 1918 and is just breathtaking. The interior of the building is even better. The main entrance brings you to a big old pump. When you walk further you get into... More

Perfect ambiance, excellent waitering, very stylish. You can get a place without reservation but preferrably you do reserve. We had the lunch menu, which was very exquisite. It is a bit more expensive but the food is great so it is all worth it.

Het pomphuis is one of my usual lunch places for business. The chef and staff keep amazing me every time with new dishes of exceptional quality. As said in the title it is one of the best restaurants in Antwerp.

Beautiful setting, very charming, good service but the quality, price ratio lets it down a little. The old pump is beautiful, large restaurant, yet it feels intimate. The food is good but not great and for the price I would expect exceptional. It is a bit in the style over substance mould. It is worth going once for the experience... More

An old pumphouse alongside Schelde river, converted into a restaurant. A quintessential European indulgence in preserving the past. Visit for a charming experience

The restaurant has a great ambiance and the large pump-room is very striking. In the day the views must be interesting. Our food was extremely good, and nicely presented. It certainly is not cheap, and the service is somewhat slow.
