Several times per year we plan a family reunion in a restaurant. Last time we visited Condacum - although close to where I live, I never visited this restaurant before.
Although very crowded, the guests have plenty of room. Tables are nicely dressed, and a lot of attention is spent to the decoration of the different rooms. Apart from a varied menu, the waiter informed us of the days' specialties. We decided and passed on our wishes. The waiter also informed us about availability of wine per glass: a very extensive choice at reasonable prices.
Condacum may not be the cheapest restaurant in the neighborhood, yet it is more than worthwhile visiting: great food, a lot of attention paid to the presentation, royal portions, very good combination of the products leading to surprising good taste. I gladly recommend Condacum for a yummy experience.

After all the good reviews we decided to visit this restaurant., In a great location,Very smart and all looks very good. You can expect to pay about 60 euro per head (Including Wine) .

For the price of the mains we were expecting something special but what we received was very poor and below expectation. We complained about the "toughness" of the meat but was told that it was my OK by the waiter!!!. We ordered a 24 euro bottle of wine and were told by the waiter that this was not what he would recommend and pointed us towards a 80 euro bottle. We stuck with the lovely Italien wine at the 24 euro. We ordered Mussels but were told for two we would need three pots and so had to order three . I am sure two would have been fine. In conclusion if you are out for a good value meal there are better places in Antwerp.

Condacum is a restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Although it is a rather big restaurant, it doesn't feel this way. The food is really delicious, we ate a la carte. There is a generous choise on the menucard, with some typical belgian dishes, but also more special dishes. Everything is well presented, you get excellent service, the food is fresh. It is advised to make reservations, especially in the weekends.

After our visit to this terrific garden centre called Van Uytsel, with its massive choice of plants and gifts, we walked across the road to Condacum, a grand café restaurant, where we all enjoyed the best ever pancakes and ice-creams. The Normandy pancake with caramelized apple and hazelnut ice-cream is fantastic. Can't wait to go back again. Hopefully we'll try out the restaurant on our next trip.

Condacum offers both outdoor seating, indoor seating and is ideally situated. (rural area in kontich) but with quick access to all motorways. The food was delicious and well presented.
The wine offered smelled of cork and was immediately taken away and replaced as it should.
The service: very friendly and familiar. We had just ordered and the starters already came on our plate. The waiter was surprised but managed it and kept our second dish on hold for a while. So the service really is OK. Another plus is the possibility to have drinks in separate lounge chairs while waiting for your group to arrive.
The only minusses are that it is quite a big restaurant -although they managed to keep a very nice atmosphere- and the toiltes that were not really clean.
Tip: make a reservation for Friday and Saturday evening as the place really is fully booked.
