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.

De reddende Engel was a nice experience. we had so many different dishes, from sea food to meat, fish, vegetables and dessert. Everything was so nicely presented, portions were ok and quality of food was super and very fresh. I recommend the Bouillabaisse Marseillaise

A beautifully old fashioned restaurant cooking classic French provincial food. Originally from Marseille. Not flashy but so so good. Everything home made. It is so rare these days to find a restaurant where the chef can really cook well. This is such a find. Come.

Well positioned restaurant near the cathedral. Large portions of good solid food. One of us had game, I had fish. We also had foie gras as an appetizer. The meal was more than satisfactory. What made the difference for us was the husband of the owner who had quite a sense of humor. We spent a good amount of time... More
