I had a business dinner last week with a colleague. I chose the place based on its TripAdvisor score. When we entered the restaurant, we were a bit set back by the poor lighting and tired decor. In fact, my colleague was questioning my choice! However, all of this was more than compensated by what we both agreed was exquisitely... More

Good food but for that price portions could be a little bit bigger. Unlike the chefs creations the manageress gave us the feeling as it was an honour we could eat at the Godevaart. Artificial smiles which disappeared even before they turned their back. Every question/remark of our group, such as a stupid second toast for the cheese platter was... More

De Godevaart is a fabulous restaurant. From the moment you walk in you realize that it exudes class and style. The ambiance is chic, the staff super pleasant and helpful, and the food is divine. We had a glass of champagne as an aperitif as we perused the menu, opting for a four-course tasting menu. See the photos for what... More

We visited this restaurant for a second time in three months. Maybe a little too soon as some of the menu items of the four/five course dinner were the same as on our previous visit - so the novelty value was not there. Service was excellent as before. Flexibility to fit in with the eating preferences of our party was... More

Delicate, excellent, ultimate balance of taste, structure, colours .. pure art on the plate and in your mouth. This is how dining in a fine restaurant should be. And with the right company it is even better (thank you R. ).

After hearing great comments, I recently tried this restaurant with my wife. It truly was a great experience: presentation of the appetizer and dishes were very nice and innovative, food full of taste, and the wines by the glass, paired well with the food. We went on a sunny day and sat outside, behind the restaurant, which was a nce... More

Center of old town. Old house, terras, not too much tables so cooks and waiters have enough time to give you the quality you deserve. Be ready for originality mixed with creativity and taste, toppled with quality. Let your sences be the judge of this amazing cuisine. A must do in Antwerp.

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. Each course was expertly prepared and interesting with varying textures and flavors. Several amuse bouche where served and the starter was a made of... More
