I want to return!

I left the research to my friend but he failed to understand the language and all the restaurants that he had identified were closed on a Saturday lunchtime. I found this one and when we arrived the Market was in full swing at 12.30 and I thought we might be unlucky as we had not booked. However... read more

I went for the three course menu featuring ravioli, filet, and a desert made of lemon ice cream along with vanilla and nuts on a base of speculaas. Amuse consisted of soup with little pieces of bacon in it. An excellent way to warm up for the first course. The food was a fine treat. Well presented and the portions... More

Travelled to Belgium for a business trip and got treated to an unforgettable meal. Four course meal - pigeon soup, lobster starter, sea bass and the cheese board to finish. Excellent service and superb food, what more would you want from a meal.

Came here with a large group of business associates. Everyone was pleasantly surprised with the quality and sophistication of the menu. As usual with finer restaurants in Belgium, the portions are rather small compared to its American counterparts. Make sure to have a full course meal with appetizers, prime and second plates, and dessert and you will not be disappointed... More

The quality of the food.. Taste and looks was excellent.. The starter .. Tartar of salmon the fish, seabrass were perfect. Only the served bread was too dry. The only negative experience was an overall 2,5 h waiting time.. Too long.. The tables of the restaurant were nearly all used,, so the chef was obviously very busy

We have been going to Marche 17 for the past 4-5 years during twice annual visits to Turnhout. The staff and the kitchen never have disappointed and in many ways the establishment just keeps getting better and better. We particularly enjoy the wine selection (often from small high quality growers in France and Spain) and the fusion sauces that accompany... More

Marché 17 is a very nice restaurant in the center of Turnhout, on the market place. They have a private parking space. Food and service are great!
