Great food, great service, great location

Great food, great service, great location. Just remember not to leave any valuables in your car - this place is frequented by a lot of business people who have their laptop in the car which attracts the wrong kind of people breaking into your car.

Although the place itself is very nice and the staff helpful and friendly. I think the food is so so. I have been here several times (most of these times for business) in the last 5 years and my conclusion is that sometimes it's good; sometimes OK; and every now and than not good. Last time I was here on... More

Great environment and really great food. The old pump house to service the locks in the harbour of antwerp is transformed around the original steam engines at the bottom of the building. It is a bit pricy but the food is excellent. It is also a bit out of the way from the centre of antwerp.

Apart from the fact that this is one of the high end restaurants in Antwerp, meaning excellent food in a splendid presentation and staff that knows how the make the customer feel good there is also the building itself. This is an old "pomphuis" which means it contained the pump installation to pump,the water in or out of the next... More

I have visited Het pomphuis quite a few times over the years. The food was, and is of excellent quality no changes there. Until recently dining here was an 'experience'. The building and location of course. A few amuses to start. Beautifully arranged plates, like paintings. Very able and friendly service. Last night we found that the food was still... More

About a 20 euro taxi ride from old Antwerp, you will find this unique, high end restaurant located near the docks. The building is beautiful, the deck is a must on a sunny day and the atmosphere is chic and elegant. The food is very good and not that pricey for the location. The service is a bit rushed, but...

Just went there for some drinks. The building is definitely 5 star - a historical building masterfully reshaped into a restaurant at a (weather permitting) beautiful vantage point of the port and ships. Service was 3 star - first waiter was friendly, but when it came to pay I waived to get a waiters attention for a long time till... More

Had lunch at the pomphuis serveral times with guests in favor of traditional cuisines and was never disappointed. Cuisine is Belgian-French and is traditional, as is the interior. Wine list is extensive with wines for every budget.

I'm going to Het Pomphuis every 3 months with old colleagues. The lunch menu is always refined, tasteful, original,... In more than three years, it never failed to please us. Very good value for money

A local took me here, and it is an original. Very nicely done, attracting the well-heeled and those looking to see and be seen. Its right along the water, near the famous docks. The food was good, the service was good, but you pay well for it. If you want to make an impression on someone, this would be a... More
