Fortunately having spent nine years living in Paris the menu was not a problem for us. I did ask if one was available but was informed that they had not had time to make a translation very tersely. It reminded me a little of Lipp in Paris for the decor but not the service. It never fails to amaze me... More

Between the Cathedral and the Grote Markt -- it would be difficult to find a place that is more centrally located in the tourist area. Amazingly, the majority of the customers are people from Antwerp. I do not know if this makes us the exception, but we do tend to like the atmosphere of what we call a "brown café".... More

such an amazing place! We spontaneously decided to visit "De Reddende Engel" due to its recommendation in the Michelin guide. The friendliness of the staff, the classic flamish design and the extraordinarily well prepared Belgian and French dishes blew us away! We ate a menue which was extremely well priced for what it was. Starting of with delicious Amuse Bouche,... More

De Reddende Engel has been run for ages by the same small group of people, gentlemen in the kitchen and the ladies and one men in the dining room. You will find here traditional French gourmet dining, no trendy fusion or nouvelle cuisine, but always prepared to perfection with excellent quality products. The two menus are excellent value, allowing you... More

The restaurant is located right next to the cathedral and offers typical southern French food. Our food was very nice. They even had a vegetarian dish, and it was excellent (rare in a French restaurant). We had one main dish and a drink, and the cost came out at 50 euro for two.

We had an excellent lunch for our group of 22. The food was delicious and well presented in a friendly and cosy atmosphere. We will definitely be making a return visit.

We visited the restaurant on a Friday evening with some trepidation as we were the only customers. It was our last night in Antwerp and we were hungry so we persevered. To our delight the food was superb. We had the Menu du jour despite my hesitation over White Asparagus soup, as I didn't like asparagus or soup. The soup... More

After a total washed out rainy day this restaurant really made the difference. It's a lovely individual place. We had fantastic food, service and ambiance and were really happy with the 'find'. Unlike many other average looking restaurants in town, food was also reasonably priced. Would highly recommend it and hope one day we can return to Antwerp and visit... More

Cosy, informal interior with excellent service by a multilingual staff. The food -French cuisine based on seasonal ingredients- is simply delicious. Advise: go absolutely for one of the menu's. And while having a decent wine selection, their house wine will be more than satisfactory.
