My Wife and I had a wonderful lunch here in the garden behind the restaurant, where you are also afforded a view of the kitchen. The lunch menu is about 42 euro and well worth it.

It is quite expensive but... More

Looks can be deceiving. From the outside it looks like a normal shop (not even a restaurant), but once you ring the bell you enter a world of wonder. Strating with the apperitif in the small back courtyard until your choices are ready and you can then go to your table. I didn't like the decor that much, a bit... More

Excellent pairings, taste and texture contrasts. Agree with previous comments with the local neighborhood being less desirable and in need of paint job inside, but food was excellent.

De Godevaart has made it to the top of our list of gourmet restaurants in Antwerp. The food was a wonderfully creative, magical mix of textures, flavours and colours. The service was excellent. We will definitely be spreading the word and hope to visit again really soon!

I have dined at this restaurant a few times now on my visits to Antwerp. Again this time, the experience was absolutely fabulous. From the moment we came in to the restaurant to the moment we left, everything was perfect. The waitress asked if we had special dietary needs and some of our dishes were adapted because of this.
