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

Fine good, very friendly staff in a very nice location. Service could be faster but worth waiting anyway. Invited my wife for a romantic dinner and with succes.

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.

It really is an unusual venue and must be lovely in the day time too due to its location on the river. The bar area is spacious and the tables nicely set apart. There is a lovely large table on the mezzanine level, where a party was celebrating. The food service was a little slow but when you have good... More

This restaurant has a lovely setting in the old pump-house. I've visited this restaurant several times and the menu does change, though they are some classic dishes that are always their though with slight variations.The staff are very friendly and attentive. I had the "Duo van Ganzenlever" which was good though the fried goose liver was a bit thick and... More

Impressive setting, service like it has to be and last bus not least an exquisite lunch. And if I may make any suggestion, their crème brûlée is one of the best I ever had.

We had a three course diner in Pomphuis, Antwerp. All courses are full of many additions (8?) to make a taste explosion. Ik member the dessert 'cooked pear in red wine'. The pear itself was not very tasty, but all the other ingredients (cram, nuts, etc ) made it edible. The same with the first coruses. Not my preferent style... More

I have been to the Pomphuis on many occasions - the food and the service is always excellent and the place has a great atmosphere for a special occasion. My main criticism is if it gives value as it has become expensive and therefore only for special occasions

This restaurant has a great history and a beautiful scenery. You look over almost 270 degrees of dockland, water, ships and locks. The restaurant is huge and in downtimes when there is few people it looks a litte desolate. Food is good but pricy. When visiting the port of Antwerp it's definitely worth a stop for a luxury drink in... More
