“Creative kitchen in formal setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Loved all the inimini amuses. Lots of staff attending to watch every empty glass. This makes it a more formal and less 'personal' restaurant. Not exactly cheap but hey, the details of every little thingy they serve is creative and adventurous. Lots of details in their cooking. That's why my husband called it a women-restaurant. No big chuncks of meat but small sized, lovely portions.
When big groups are there it tends to by noisy in some parts of the restaurants. Pitty the weather didn't allow us to sit in their garden.

“Best restaurant in Antwerp. Not cheap, but perfect from a price-quality perspective.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Best restaurant in Antwerp. Not cheap, but perfect from a price-quality perspective. A most original cook in Antwerp, who is able to keep a balance between originality and taste.

“Nice interior, excellent food for a fair price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Not to miss in Antwerp. Excellent food; we were surprised by the mystery menu or how do they call it. You just teel what you don't like or eat and then the tasting starts. Good value for money.

“Does it get any better???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

What's not to like?
If I must say something I would say that the portions of the main course were a bit too much. This contrast to most restaurants in this class so that is a compliment.
It's always busy so make reservation on time.
