I would definately recommend to have a meal at "Het Pomphuis". It is a very unusual place, has its own charm and character. Its eclectic atmosphere will make your special occasion meals even more special. It will be appropriate to dress up for this place.

If you are interested in some interesting facts about the building and its history, you can always ask the staff to provide you with some materials which they have at reception. Management is obviously proud of the history of Pomphuis and try their best to keep the restaurant in harmony with the title of "a new pearl of Antwerpen". Good job!

I will not describe the food - 5 out of 5 for that, delicious! Wine list was great, too.

The only thing that we didn't like (and it's a shame!) was our waitress.. She was grumpy, haughty and miserable to serve us and comparing to other guys who were on the shift with her it was even more noticeable. Taking into account the price level I think it is unacceptable to worry about the face of your waitress. I would have asked to replace her, but because we had such a good time at the dinner that was just a little inconvinience for us. Still, have to reduce my points to 4 for that.

Professional service. Took the business lunch, got good explanation. The wine from the house is excellent. No worries here at the Pomphuis.

Impressive beautifully renovated art deco industrial building on the outskirts of the city. Warm atmosphere, very friendly & attentive staff, elaborate wine list that takes more time pondering than the menu, tasty not-ordinary dishes, .. Expect a not so light bill. Try to come early and have a drink outside on the wooden terrace with view on the docks. If one can choose from only a few restaurants to visit in Antwerp, this should be one of them.
