We’ve stayed here for dinner as it was recommended by another restaurant which was fully booked. Backyard was easy to book via email with a swift confirmation. We were with a group of 9 people and arrived late in Antwerp. It was no problem to...More

Food was excellent! We had the club sandwich, BLT, and a sandwich we can't pronounce or remember how to spell it. Staff was really nice.

We were a group of 15 persons who had dinner and drinks. The food was good and so was the service. Recommend this place for groups of friends.

One of the few places in Antwerp where they have such range of gins! And good quality tonic. It’s a rare thing. Amazing garden hidden in the back of the bar. Service a bit low and not coordinated, but wasn’t a big problem.
