“This is why we love Belgium (and Antwerp) - great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Located near my office in the southern part of Antwerp, I take lunch with a special guest or when a friend comes by. The setting is typical 19th century living room, open kitchen in the back, no fancy tralala-service, and no nonsense excellent and really fine food. Last time, there was no vegetarian plate on the menu, but in no time the chef prepared us a very good salad and then one of the best risotto's I ever had. 60 euro per person, including dessert and without wine is not cheap, but hey, I know very few places where food is so good.

“Splendid experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

The setting is in an old 19th century rich family house, but the interior is adapted to a modern setting.

Part of the restaurant looks into the open kitchen were you can watch your food being prepared.

The food is excellent, the wine menu is short with an excellent balance between price and quality. Excellent wines around € 35.

The service is a bit slow, because they only service 1 shift in the evening. The purpose is not to rush things so everybode can dine at ease.
