We booked for dinner on a Friday evening. We had the four courses (each a surprise!) with wine and each course was just brilliant. Each course was explained by our waitress with such passion and knowledge. The service, food and wine were amazing! One of the best restaurants we have ever been to! Do not miss this wonderful experience! It cant be too long before this superb restaurant is included in the Michelin guide! We have eaten at many Michelin Star restaurants and this puts them all to shame. A must of your in Antwerp!

All the trappings of a Michelin starred restaurant - little box to put Mrs Shredhead's handbag on, amuse bouches, excellent service, tasty, well presented food in the Heston Blumenthal style.

Some nice surprises were the Belgian sparkling wine and the rhubarb in white chocolate.

Good selection of meat and fish starters and mains. One token veggie choice.

Best to let them know in advance if you are a non meat eater as the amuse bouches were meaty and the fish dishes also had meat (why do restaurants do that?). If you book online there's a form to complete to help you. Make sure you confirm you are going as there's a €50 charge if you don't show up.

Good but not over attentive service.

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!
