“A league of his own”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

John (the owner) plays in a leagure of his own. His enthusiasm, his passion for food and his care about the customer will provide you with great food at a very affordable rate (bearing in mind it's a real restaurant, not a place to grab a quick bite).

“good food, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Although this restaurant is here for a long time already, we came for the first time.
All 6 of us took the menu, which was excellent. Good food for a decent price, fresh and inventive.
However, the service...from the owner to some of the waiters, what they called humor we call lack of respect and good manners. And the noise, it sounded like we were in a cafetaria at times.
Although we have no complains about the food, we don't feel like we want to go back. There are many places in and around Antwerp with the same quality of food and decent pricing and with professional and personable service.

“We ate at De Troubadour in the Handschoenmarkt...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

A nice place for lunch just across from the Cathedral. Good beer, nice bread and smoked salmon. And a better-priced option to the other (expensive) restaurants in that square.
