Excellent meal and service

A friend had recommended this to us and we weren't disappointed. The menu is very interesting and all the dishes were of a very high quality. The staff are fun and lively and very efficient.

We have been here before. Service has been impeccable and the food wonderful. On this evening we started with some champagne and water. Looked at the menu and decided we wanted the halibut but on the 7 course menu. Therefore we ordered al carte. Coquilles (scallops) to start; the Halibut as the main and one dessert and one cheese plate... More

Entrance required ringing a bell on the street, but once inside the setting was beautiful, reminiscent of a palace restoration. The menu had quite a variety of foods in unusual combinations- I was not sure what to order, but took a chance- Wow! Wow! Wow! Everything we ordered was so delicious- it made you want to chew all the flavor... More

We were invited here by a colleague and his wife. The restaurant is located in the historic centre of the city in a less interesting street. You have to ring the bell to get access. The interior is nice and cosy, somewhat mansion style. It was hot that evening and what better temperature control (air conditioning) would have been nice.... More

An excellent meal, beautifully conceived, prepared and served in a very attractive room. The multi-lingual young staff were impressive. The idea of having a glass of wine chosen to accompany a dish worked well (especially as the wine list was full of inviting but very costly bottles). We still do not understand how the chef made the liqueur lollipops -... More

What a perfect night and setting. Superb food and service from start to finish. The rose dessert was sublime! Well done Hannah! Our favourite eating experience since Noma. Recommend any day.

For now, after close to 6 months in Antwerp, it is my best culinary experience. The restaurant propose 2 menu: a vegetarian one of a signature menu. Decision are simple: which menu and how many dishes between 4 to 7. After that, just be ready for a journey of surprises inside the creativity of the cook. The service was perfect... More

The food is absolutely delicious. I wasn't even hungry, and enjoyed every wonderful bite. I will say the service could have been better. They seemed a little aloof and annoyed to speak to us in English. I've been to restaurants of equal caliber that made me feel more welcome, so I do not feel like that kind of attitude is... More

Great team, really caring that you are enjoying your evening. Great food with multitude of tastes. Great champaign, and wines all for affordable prices. We took the 4/5 courses Signatuur menu with cheese / desert. Place you immediately want to book again and come back with friends the next day. Definitely going for their 1st star but they will need... More
