“A place where you don't feel welcome at all”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

We went there looking for a cup of coffee and some waffles. No waffles are served in there. Personeel is very rude. I will not recommend this place to anybody.

“Uptight place, not very welcoming”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2012

The food is ok but too expensive for what you're getting. The staff is not very friendly and has a bit of an uptight mentality. Too bad, it could be a nice place, but now it really isn't.

“too expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2012

Very nice place. The building is just magnificent. Food is ok, but portions were way to
small (left the place hungry) and prices are too high! Staff is professional but their attitude shows that this is an upscale place. Waiter made me feel uncomfortable.
Overall, decent food but not enough and overpriced, beautiful building and location, staff with an attitude. I won't be coming back.

“Always my First stop for dinner in Antwerp”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

Having been introduced to this restaurant by a local I find myself returning time and time again. A discreet entrance opens up into a beautiful split level room with a magnificent bar area at which to have a pre (or post) drink.

The food is exquisite the shrimp croquettes work every time and the gentle flavours that come with them are great.

If the tournados of beef are on the menu for mains then it is recommended. Everything you have read about Belgian fries is true and the side orders here are a classic example.

Wines are excellent and service helpful especially if they recognise that you are not a local - much time taken to explain the food

I keep returning which is the best complement that I can pay a restaurant
