We are having a weekend in Antwerp and asked the hotel to recommend a nice restaurant. They suggested this place and booked us in for lunch. We had a splendid, relaxed meal. The amuse bouche were creative - the stand out was a warm egg yolk with finely chopped, pickled vegetables - beautiful! The following courses were just as well... More

Some of the dishes were very good (tartare with caviar, foie gras and truffles; pigeon). Others disappointing (ravioli, steak). The black-painted walls must have colored the waiters' mood -- the most unsmiling bunch we have seen outside Paris. Overpriced.

I was seriously worried that most dinner options in Antwerp were tourists oriented or bad sushi, and was so very pleased with my dinner there! Aside from the bad spa music, everything was outstanding: the quality of the ingredients, the service both very courteous yet accommodating, the gustative palette, the wine selection...bravo et merci!

I have had the chance to visit De Godevaart several times in the last months on different occasions and each visit was a culinary orgasm. Located in the centre of the town, just a small walking distance from the cathedral, it is situated in an old merchant's house which has been wonderfully preserved. The atmosphere is nice, cosy and somehow... More

We visited this restaurant 5 times in 2016, last time we had the "Tomaat Garnaal" (belgian grey schrimps) which was pure Delight followed by the ""Iberico with artichok and lentels" so fresh & tastfull and wonderfull presentation. The winelist has some real gems and service is flawless. They deserve a Michelin star!

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
