We had a lovely evening discovering Volef's. We went during Restaurant Week so we took the fixed menu. The food was good. The wines were very good as well, and our glasses were refilled very regularly. Service was friendly. Everything was well explained without being too pushy. Just the way I like it! In other reviews people are complaining that... More

Not the ordinary Asian restaurant. Food is very creative and combinations are nice. Service is ok, although sometimes a bit slow. Wouldn't really recommend their wines. All in all a good place to go.

We were invited to this place from our friends who live in Antwerpen. The restaurant is located closed to the new neighbourhood on the river Maas. Very hip and cool places are there. Volef's is two streets more in the inside respect to the river places, but still very nice and modern. The food is a combination of Asian and... More

No doubt this is a good place to have a good meal with creative fusion cuisine. The place is rather small but well decorated, you are welcomed by the chef who is cooking in his open kitchen, the menu is small but the choice of dishes is original. The only - was the service, which was very slow (about 3... More

A great way to round off a day trip to Antwerp, the food was carefully and lovingly prepared and introduced new and tasty combinations. Most of all, the service was excellent, friendly, informative and attentive, without being intrusive. Deserts are a must! Visitors from Scotland.

Volef’s is a great restaurant situated in the heart of Antwerp, near “Mas”: Oude Leeuwenrui 23. So it’s only a few minutes away from the riverside. It’s a little bit hidden between buildings, but when you enter the restaurant you immediately feel welcome and comfortable. The interior has been remodeled before they started their business. As a result the interior... More

The food has been prepared with love. Service was great but maybe because the place was not packed at the time. It's great for a date or just to enjoy the mouth watering food. Menu is not very big but it's a place that has to be visited.

The restaurant is a little hidden but as soon as you enter you are treated very good. Prices are very good for the quality of food and service you get. The owner and chef is very skilled and combines a lot of flavours on the plate. You can tell he traveled and worked in many places. I can recommend this... More

We spend New Years Eve in Antwerp and had our diner in Volef's. The service was very pleasant and professional, and the food was absolutely great. All the courses were creative and inspired, with interesting combinations of ingredients. We had a fantastic evening, and after Volef's it was only a few minutes walk to the riverside to watch the wonderful... More
