We went here for my husband's birthday and really enjoyed it. The restaurant is small and popular, so do reserve. We had the 4-course menu, which was 3 courses plus dessert and we took them up on their offer to provide wine with each course. The wines complemented the food perfectly and weren't too expensive. The pace of service was... More

This chef won his first Michelin star some years ago and to my opinion is today worth 3 stars! His compositions are simple but the way he brings up his ingredients is fabulous! His wife was our perfect host, with serenity and calm, which reflected on her team. Great place for tasting excellence.

It is sad that "de Godevaart" isn't open for business lunch anymore. I always liked the food and the small, but nice garden.

I was on business in Antwerp and was taken to De Godevaart by my colleagues who knew of my love of good food and wine. Their choice was excellent; despite us being a large party (11) the service was very good and the food was exceptional. When next in Antwerp I will be making a reservation to visit De Godevaart...

We had lunch at De Godevaart in December 2014 but arrived tragically late. We had booked a table for 13h, but by 13.30h we were still not there and called the restaurant to apologize for our tardiness. The maitre said we could still come but no longer take the big gourmet menu, which wasn't a problem as we were just... More

There was perfection in all aspects of our visit to De Godevaart, from the ambience to the service and staff and to the food. A highly enjoyable 5 course meal with every dish perfectly balanced in terms of tastes and ingredients. The wine suggestion was excellent, staff knowledgable and attentive, in all a very positive experience. Without a doubt one... More

We're both vegetarians and we like to push things to a higher level once and a while. For us this is the perfect spot to do so! 50% of the menu are strictly vegetarian dishes prepared with the same finesse as meat and fish courses. You don't find that easily nowadays. We were absolutely amazed by the taste, the structures,... More
