“superb seafood in a garage shared with 32 people”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

Before booking this excellent restaurant be aware that 90% of the menu is about shellfish. But probably amongst the best in Antwerp. Complete seafood platters you usually can order at hotspots near the beach. Unfortunately this is nowhere near the beach : it is in a garage suitable for 2 cars max filled with 30 other seafoodlovers. The romantic tete-a-tete will have to wait I am afraid.

“Oysters & pallourdes to die for”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

After having enjoyed Phil's oyster bar at the weekly "Saturday Market" in Antwerp in the past, we decided to give his new restaurant a try. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere is very laid back but the food is of star quality. The two of us shared a plate of the most exquisite pallourdes as an appetizer. Our first dishes left us lost for words: warm oysters with champagne sauce, spinach& cream and a plate of 6 different oysters. Main dishes were great as well (lobster & sole meunière). The place was packed on a Sunday evening but the service was smooth, friendly and very professional. We were seated quite close to the next table of four but we didn't mind at all since the place is so full of buzz and energy that we did not feel we were lacking any privacy. A great, authentic place for a relaxed evening with friends. We'll be back! PS: Reservations can be made and changed very easily through their website, which we prefer to having to make phonecalls.

“Pearls on a plate”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

This cosy restaurant in a converted garage is a new business of the owner of a rocking marketplace oyster-bar. From Wednesday to Sunday evening the garage door swings open to accomodate 34 guests, surrounded by fishnets and big black and white fishtrade pictures, sitting at high tables with the lights set just right. Fresh is key here, and don't let the rough edges of the interiour misguide you, in the back of the restaurant is a state of the art kitchen that opened just a few months ago, specialised in shellfish and seafood. We had two bottles of excellent wine, yet very reasonably priced. Take anyone you would like to have a good time with or leave a lasting impression on of good taste.
