A year ago I got a Bongo coupon for my birthday from my colleagues. I activated it after some other gastronomic experiences the last few weeks. We arrived in the arty-farty restaurant where the personal was really kind and rather professional. The first dishes were nicely served and I liked how tastes were build up. The according wines were (except... More

Great food and wines. The interior is also nice with a lot of art. Quite expensive but acceptable. This is what you expect from a Michelin star restaurant

I'll try to be concise – It's a place to return. Food and presentation is top notch, without pretence nor decoration for the decoration sake (like some *restaurants over-indulge in). Absolutely approachable, professional waiters. We were served by three of them, and especially the service the Dutch waiter presented us with, was truly warm and memorable. Particularly loved the contemporary... More

This is a 2 star Michelin restaurant. And the food and service are really like that. High end! In summer when the weather is nice , you can have lunch in the nice garden. There is also a small private room for private dinners in a small group. One of the best restaurants in the Antwerp area.

It is almost five years since we initially experienced dining at Pastorale. This time I returned with almost the same party of friends to celebrate an extremely large milestone birthday. Once again we lunched on the Expressions menu accompanied by their wine selection. Once again we sat at the same table in the garden on a glorious summer’s day. Very... More

This is my second time visiting this special place and it is really a unique experience. Prices are higher than regular restaurants but you also get totally different level of food. The very small suggestion to the staff and policy is about the cheese plate which is being offered just before desert.. when you ask a client "can we offer... More

The Past-oral-e-motions restaurant is definitely amongst the best in this country and deserves all credit. We took the 7 course menu with wines in this 2 stars Guide Michelin restaurant and were flabbergasted by the variety of tastes, explosion of senses and exquisite products . The lobster was the best I ever ate and the setting is special with art... More

Location is in the quiet village, but both the backyard and the restaurant itself is very stylish. Service was good, perhaps a little slow every now and then. Every dish was either good or excellent! White tomato juice prepared as an apetizer was superb. Beats 't Zilte (tested day before) 6-0.

We went on a Tuesday night and there were only six guests in total which was a bit disappointing. Very beautiful place with an impressive art work from Arne Quinze in the dining room. Selection of three champagnes to start, 6 to 7 beautifully presented flavor bombs to start the meal. Went a la carte with white asparagus and lobster... More

If you would like to have a dinner during the week end, book a table in advance. The restaurant is very good and well known among the locals. Try a menu (9,7 or 5 dishes) or a la carte. All of them are outstanding. The list of wines is generous and the sommelier would recommend very good wine by glass,... More
