What a fiasco! Expensive, REALLY AVERAGE FOOD, BAD service , took them between 40-50 minutes to serve each dish. We were there for more than 3.5 hours and we did not even finished our 6 course menu! Rude service. For this price level you will do yourself a favor in finding a different place. My experience - these restaurants that... More

High quality ingredients, expert cooking, courteous and discreet service in elegant surroundings make this a very pleasant restaurant to eat at. There is an internal courtyard which would be very pleasant to dine in during the warmer months. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Overall, a very pleasant feeling of being pampered. Thoroughly recommended.

The location is right in the centre of Antwerp near the Meir shopping street. The restaurant does not offer private parking, so you need to use the city parkings in the area or public transportation to get there. We encoutered some difficulty with the on-line reservation, but the problem could be solved (luckily someone else cancelled). The restaurant was ful... More

Inspiring, surprising and excellent food. Really nice for couples. I could really appreciate the BOB formula where you were served half portions of accompanying wine. Original.

We arrived at the location and were offered to sit anywhere we liked. We chose outside but were then told that they did not serve food outside... After wrestling with the menu, I chose to have the pork with carrot and mustard. Note: It's important to be aware that this is a very low carb restaurant and they did not... More

I was invited for a dinner at De Godevaart for my birthday. We decided to take the 4-course dinner. From the start to the end this was one of the best dinners I have had. Not only the food was pure in taste, the wine was really nice but also the service was very good and punctional. Price-quality a 10... More

When we arrived, 5 minutes before the booked time of 20.00 a member of the serving staff had given our table (the last one outside) to another party of 4. This was explained to the other guests, who graciously agreed to move indoors, although there was an awkward shuffling around by the 8 of us. The graciousness was temporary as... More

This is an expensive high end restaurant and there is no point in going unless you enjoy fairly formal and intricate food, but served in a very friendly and knowledgeable way and with no pomposity. The menu is a set one and you choose the number of courses you want - we had four and it was plenty; eating the... More

We had a business dinner with 4 people and were very satisfied of the whole evening we had. We chose for a four course dinner with matching wines. For one of our drivers it was interesting that also a ‘responsible driving portion’ for the wines was possible. The amuse bouche offered at the start of our evening had a great... More
