“Just Enjoy”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

The best words for this restaurant are:'sit down and enjoy'.
Once entering the door, you are overwhelmed by the kind service of all staff. Everybody walks around with a gentle smile on their face. First remarkable thing is the decoration of the restaurant. No bels, no bling-bling. Beautiful flowers on the table, light blue table covers and napkins. Just perfect.
Then hold your head to the sky because the ceiling is extra ordinary. This is what makes the decoration.
The lady of the house welcomed us with an exquisite gentle voice(perfectly balanced).
I was accompanied by french speaking guests, and all staff had no issues with speaking both dutch and french. Same for the menu cards, they offered french menu cards to the french speaking guests.
We all went for the Menu Carte Blanche, some took accompanied with whines, others didn't.
Our full table enjoyed every single dish, as well as every single wine.
We all know now how heaven looks like!
Dome is a fantastic restaurant with very skilled people. congrats.
I definitely will return there.

“Antwerp's finest”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Dôme has been going on a steady path for quite a while now and keeps evolving in its own, personal and extremely creative way. It is neither classic, nor avant-gardistic, this is modern and contemporary cuisine that is not obsessed with michelin stars or rankings. This makes Dôme very classy, but also laid back. The cuisine is often a rediscovery of the beauty of products, but always with a subtle twist that shows you that there is pure creativity happening behind the stove! But what makes Dôme really unique is their fantastic way to match wine and food. There are many restaurants around the globe that offer sophisticated (natural) wine pairings , but even at the greatest tables, they don't seem able to top Dôme's ability to find the right glass to match a plate. Much respect for one of my favorite places - and not just in Antwerp or Belgium.

“Without discutie the best restaurant in Antwerp.”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

Very beautiful restaurant with an excellent and pure kitchen. This is not a 'show'-restaurant, the quality is in details. Superb winelist and friendly service. At the other side of the square is the 'Dôme sur Mêr' from the same owners and is also very recommended!!
