This is great restaurant. The menu has a variety of dishes including several different salads to choose from. The food is always good, the portions are large and the service is friendly. This is a smaller restaurant that tends to fill up quickly, so reservations are recommended.

This is a lovely little place with good food and a nice atmosphere. The menu is a little limited but the portion size is tremendous. Nostradam has quite restricted opening hours so it's best to check when it's open before making a reservation. You'll need a reservation because it's very small and always packed. Not too difficult to find on... More

Quick bite to eat, this place is the place to be. It is mainly known for it's amazing salades (and this place proves that a salade can be amazing!) and fresh pasta. Tast is impecable, sizes are too big... when going on Thursday or in the weekend, you best make reservations, because it's usually a full house there!

My partner and I had another great meal at this little gem off the main drag. The food at Nostradam is consistently good. We have eaten there dozens of times and never ever had one complaint hence my surprise to find a negative comment on here. The owners are very friendly and so is their staff, the ambiance is very...

This is a small restaurant, but the food is great and you get a lot on your plate... To eat here you have to make a reservation, because almost everyday all the seats are taken...

This restaurant made me create a tripadvisor account. There are two issues: 1. the food was unacceptable (pasta with broccoli and smoked salmon, probably microwaved, overboiled, randomly prepared) 2. the tripadvisor reviews were great (among top restaurants in Mechelen) Bottom line: avoid this restaurant and don't always rely on tripadvisor reviews
