The food is very good but portions are limited. I would not go there again because I think you pay too much for what you get. Staff is friendly but very much focussed on the sale of drinks and wines. Entrance only by elevator.

If this restaurant was located in a big European capital it would be full all the time. The space is great with a view over Antwerp and a cosy terasse. Slightly overpriced and small menu card.

We had lunch here on the rooftop terrace - which has a very nice view and is very cosy.

The personell is friendly.

The menu is rather limited - but the suggestions of the day are nice.

I had tagliatelle with lobster which was nice, however certainly not the best I have had yet.

If you are visiting Antwerp as a tourist I would recommend this restaurant just for the view.

However, if you want really good Italian food I would recommend I FAMOSI, which is absolutely fantastic!

Our business hosts took us here for dinner one night. We had a set menu since there were about 20 people and it included tuna served raw with fennel and herbs, manicotti with ricotta and spinach, veal with carrots and potatoes, and a fruit tart dessert. Every course was so excellent I ate every molecule of each one. The tuna was the freshest raw tuna I have ever had, the veal was the most tender, and the dessert was the prefect balance of sweetness and tart. They also served a fantastic white and red wine that complimented the various courses.

Oh I almost forgot to mention the view. You are looking out from the top floor of the hotel over the rest of the city. You can have a drink or dine on the patio or in their beautiful dining room.
