Located right in between Groenplaats and Antwerp City Square. Great food (menu was Western - Asia fusion at time of writing) and excellent drinks. Lunch menu and bar tapas also possible. Stylistic design, but don't get too drunk on the wide range of cocktails cause...More

Food creative, good quality, but quite expensive. Avocado salad lacked of Avocado! Assistant manager on duty bored and unpassionate for working. Also not customer-oriented and badly trained for dealing with customer complaints.

The place is styled nicely. But the food is average. Not very special, neither very tasty. 0,5l bottles of water at 4,95 is expensive. And a gintonic at 17 euro insanely expensive. Prices don’t match the overall quality of the place.
