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

I cannot understand why this restaurant does not have a Michelin star as it is as good as others I have visited. We had an incredibly inventive and enjoyable meal.

Just a stone throw away from where we live but the first time we visited. Beautiful restaurant in an old maison de maitre. Service is "young", professional and very friendly. Dishes are beautiful, creative and full of taste. Bread is just to die for. Wine list small, could be a bit larger, but extremely fairly priced. This restaurant deserves its... More

From the moment we rang the bell and were escorted to the back garden by a handsome waiter, we knew we would be in for a treat. We enjoyed the complimentary apps outside and then made our way inside for the multi-course meal; we opted to do a wine pairing, which was wise. For each dish, someone came out to... More
