we were recommended here as a place to eat on a business trip, but too be honest it did nt start too well, it took 20 minutes to get a drink, and because you only get served small ones you cant keep waiting 20 minutes for another round. we also asked to see a wine list, but were told, sorry...

Below my positive points and my negative points + a lot of choice + good price/quantity + original interior + friendly people - Location the street is very narrow and missing sunshine on the terrace

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

Last time we went to Nostradam, my partner had a salad, I took the wokked scampi-chicken dish. Yummie!!! I read another diner did not get any salad dressing and the salad was difficult to get through. Well, that is very strange coz their salad dressing is like the salad dressing version of a signature dish; it is pink and very... More

We've had many meals at this restaurant and we have always been happy punters. Great food (the most amazing salads btw), great service, great interior and great atmosphere. It's a very cosy place where we've always enjoyed having a meal whether we had romance on our mind or a relaxed night out with our mates. The owners of the place... More
