Took clients to dinner on their recommendation and was not disappointed. The food was good but the setting was the main plus inside a huge old pumping house. Plenty of fresh choice which tasted good. A great place for dinners, though not if you are on a budget

Located in an old water pumping station the decoration and settings of the tables are just great. The food is slightly better than the average brasserie but the location makes up for it. Located just outside Antwerpen . Finding a parking is a bit tricky

The outside look make you feel like an ordinary old building dating back to 1920'. Couple years ago, the interior was redesigned by skillful architect with respect to the old heritage of pump house (they still keep... More

Gorgeous upmarket restaurant in an amazing building - service was excellent. Lovely riverside terrace. It was so good I am still giving it 5 stars, despite the appalling crime of not supplying tapwater when requested. We were charged €5.50 for a half litre of fizzy water - the beer and wine were cheaper! plus the amusing explanation that in Holand... More

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

I would definately recommend to have a meal at "Het Pomphuis". It is a very unusual place, has its own charm and character. 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
