Wow. I think this place was rated in the top 2 or 3 on Tripadvisor and I can see why. Our only question after our visit, is why does it not have a michelin star ? Maybe the inspectors are looking at some minor non food related points, because certainly the food was second to none. Our service was very... More

My family and I visited this restaurant a couple of weeks ago for a birthday party. We were particularly stunned by the exquisite taste of the 5-course dinner that was served to us, with the tartar being my personal favorite. The champagne and choices of wine were excellent and paired well with the food. I wasn't a big fan of... More

We had dinner here the night before the annual closing for the X-mas vacation. Just one menu available. Just a fantastic dinner, very inventive and every course just right. The wine selection has improved substantially. This is the best new-school restaurant in Antwerp by far.

Went for a business dinner and the whole table was delighted. Food was perfectly paired and cooked with innovative techniques, presented in a beautiful & creative way. I appreciated the wine pairings too. Service was attentive and kind. The location is also very pleasant as the restaurant is set in what I believe was an old fish shop. Every little... More

Excellent food, great staff and well matched wines for every course. Even the four course menu is sufficient. Would definitely go back.

Simple yet perfectly balanced dishes. Chef Dave really knows how to satisfy his costumers. This is one of, if not the best, restaurants in Antwerp. No more words needed.

Back to Antwerp from UK - just to go here! 3 veggies, 3 carnivores. Great evening - 5 course option - most of us also went for wine selection to go with it. Food fantastic - exciting, surprising from amuse bouche at start to stunning deserts. Staff enthusiastic and friendly. Leisurely pace just right so whole evening of entertainment. Those... More

We opted for a surprise 5 course Menu including vegetarian and vegan variations. Dave De Belder seemed to enjoy the creative challenge. The service was great without the usual 'stuffiness' one is used to in upscale restaurants. Would recommend it anytime!
