We visited Dock's Cafe on a Tuesday evening - without a reservation ... obviously not such a good idea! But we were lucky and got one of the last available tables.
Several large groups of business folks were dining there, but we got a table in the back, close to the kitchen - which I found very interesting because a kitchen and how work is done there says quite a bit about the restaurant. Even though the restaurant was obviously fully booked, they set for parties of two a table with 4 places ... that leaves enough space and privacy even in a full restaurant. The interior decoration is incredible, one feels like being transferred into a story from Jules Verne.
We started of with a platter of raw oysters and a platter of north sea shrimps and mollusks. Everything was fresh and very delicious! After that we continued with fish filets with leek and chantarelles mushrooms, again delicious. The recommended wine for the fish was a Grüner Veltliner from Austria which fits wonderfully into the - interesting - combination of fish, mushrooms and leek.
The service was a bit on the "reserved" side, maybe because of us speaking english, maybe because of a very busy evening. But we'll be back and don't forget to place a reservation!

I love Dock's, even though I have become a vegetarian and no longer enjoy their fabulous seafood. This place has a wonderful ambiance, whenever you go there.

Firstly, The Docks Cafe not a cafe but a very good restaurant with a stylish design. The food is not all fish as some might think, infact there are a lot of meat dishes. I have been here many times when I come to Antwerp on business and always look forward to returning. This last visit, the manager gave us helpful advice on some wines which were just perfect with the courses.
The only area for improvement is that I do find the waiters always seem too busy to interact with the customers
A visit to Antwerp without a visit to the Docks Cafe is missing a good dining experience and some of the character of the city.

We had lunch with friends at the Docks cafe. Ate from the well priced lunch menu, with oysters and guinea fowl. Well timed and pleasant service and excellent food. A great choice for dining in antwerp.

This restaurant are specialized in seafood, and they deliver to perfection. But they manage to deliver excellent food to the one in our party who don't eat seafood. An great experience and worth a visit.
