Having just come back from dinning at Heston Blumenthals 'The Fat Duck' over in the UK (3 Michelin Stars) i felt duty bound to write about my experience here last month .
I was there with two friends, we ate some perfect food and drank some fine wines, the staff were very friendly and knew a great deal about the food, the whole event was fabulous, having just come back from The Fat Duck , i can honestly say that if consistance is maintained then within a year the De Godevaart will have its first Star.

This is the second time we have dined at this amazing restaurant! It amazes me that this restaurant is not Michelin rated but perhaps this is because the Chef has opted to live the excellence instead of staging it!! This is a taste experience and not just a night out. The extra chef taste servings added so much value to our 6 course surprise set menu with wine. The wine is very carefully paired and amazingly unique. We loved it last time and we loved it again! Advance booking advised but well worth it.

We had an absolutely wonderful dining experience here. Pricey, yes. But also a big yes for food (quality, presentation and creativity) and service.

If you want to be pampered for a few hours with the absolute best in macro cuisine out there, give this restaurant a try! Currently, one of the best restaurants in the city (the #1 TA rating proves that already) for that extra special experience!

I recommend this small chic restaurant to a very special occasion. it is situated in a very center of the city, but you can't find it if you don't know what you are looking for, so there is no "accidental" tourists there.


If you like surprises and appreciate haute cuisine, go for Chef’s special surprise menu and you will not regret it! We were absolutely enjoying every course we had: starting from eggs (which were not real eggs, but filled with something melting in your mouth) finishing by delicious ice-cream & gin-tonic sorbet! And I am not event commenting main fish course - second to none!
Service was great, ladies spoke English and Dutch explaining every dish and its character, so we know what it was.


Great choice of wine, and I liked so much their wine glasses!

My fiancee took me to Antwerp to propose and booked De Godevaart for dinner on Saturday evening. We had the four courses with wine and each course was just amazing. Every course was explained by the very helpful and attentive waitress. The service, food and wine were perfect! Each course was special and it was exciting to wait to find out what the next course would be! One of the best restaurants we have ever been to! It is a little more expensive than your average restaurant but 100% worth it! If you go to Antwerp...do not miss this wonderful experience!
