Simple and excellent quality food

Perfect service, food of superior quality and for once an uncomplicated vegetarian option. Just the way I like it. And the Dame Blanche... wow, absolutely delicious. The only small disappointment was the hot chocolate. In a place like that, I'd expect a home made gourmet one made from real... read more

The only small disappointment was the hot chocolate. In a place like that, I'd expect a home made gourmet one made from real chocolate but luckily I love Cécémel.

The best thing about this restaurant is its unique atmosphere being situated in the water inside an old boat house. It has a very large open space feel which was pleasantly unique. We had an excellent meal my favorite dish being the steak tartar. The wait staff was very good. Prices were high. All in all a really good place... More

Just getting into the restaurant is a great experience.The setting is beautiful. You can see the pumps which in past times regulated the river flow. Quite impressive. The service is really nice, very attentive waiters. The presentation of the food is fantastic. We are always very pleased with the excellent atmosphere of the restaurant and the choices of the menu.... More

A consistently wonderful restaurant which I have been visiting at least once a year for ten years. A destination place. Apart from the setting, which is stunning, the food is consistently brilliant and challenging. It is inventive, imaginative and in every way outstanding. The menus change regularly and focus on stunning taste experiences. The waiting staff know their stuff and... More

One can't deny that the setting is impressive, atmosphere is perfect Mostly people from the harbor area coming for business lunch and dinner Been here more times, and the food is of good quality but lacking taste. For the price they charge I expect more.

Went here to celebrate a birthday- staff couldn't have been nicer, they even brought out a birthday sparkler. Restaurant has a lovely and chic outdoor area and inside they have designed it superbly incorporating all the original pump house design. Food delicious although conservative portions.

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 an extra, free of charges, "eyecatcher" when going to...

'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
