Finally Made it Back

I wrote a review of this restaurant on Oct. 12, 2013 and ended by saying I hoped to get back for dinner. Guess what? I made it back and had a wonderful meal and experience. On my first visit we had a great lunch. On this visit we had an even better dinner. Chef David is a great cook and... read more

We came here for my boyfriends birthday and it was wonderful. It was such an experience and the staff were so lovely, we were taken on a journey with the food and wine. With the chefs coming out to explain the different dishes and the sommelier explaining the wine what else could you ask for. They were so wonderful and... More

When travelling we always try to book nice restaurants ahead of time, but this one won our hearts forever it seems. Situated on a quiet street with hardly any signs on the door it is easy to dismiss. inside its a lovely interior with around 10 tables. The staff were excellent!! we trusted our waitress and decided to go with... More

Food was really good - very tasty and presented with imagination. On the expensive side, but well worth the visit.

Kitchen is top quality, excellent food and nice creations. Service was informal which is fine. Menus were distributed leaving us with no further explanation in particular with regard to the fixed menu options available. Waiter immediately after seating us proposed to serve us a glass of champagne wine which we agreed to have. See remark at the end of the... More

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...
