The Pumphouse is a multi floor restaurant that is located in an old pump house in Antwerp. The kitchen serves excellent food, the staff is friendly and attentive and the wine list nice and long. The food is a bit expensive but I believe it is worth it. Parking is free but can be an issue when it is busy.... More

This is a fantastic restaurant if you are near Antwerp. It is an historical dock house converted to an ultra chic restaurant but keeping the main features. Food is very good, well presented and if you ask for the daily menu, not outrageous (certainly not cheap). Good service and overall a great experience

Its eclectic atmosphere will make your special occasion meals even more special. It will be appropriate to dress up for this place. If you are interested in some interesting facts about the building and its history, you... More

Impressive beautifully renovated art deco industrial building on the outskirts of the city. Warm atmosphere, very friendly & attentive staff, elaborate wine list that takes more time pondering than the menu, tasty not-ordinary dishes, .. Expect a not so light bill. Try to come early and have a drink outside on the wooden terrace with view on the docks. If... More

This is the old pumping station for a very large dry dock, big enough to taker a liner. Renovated and restored as a superb restaurant some 15 of us went there for a business dinner. The pumps are still in situ blow the dining area, but people come here for the ambiance, the good food and the wine. None of... More

Sunday lunch enjoyed in the Pomphuis. Great place, very authentic, correct staff and well serviced! Be aware that it is a more than average chic restaurant, jeans is under dressed! They prepared a kids menu for our children and they enjoyed it! The carpacio and main tuna was very well prepared . Compliments!
