Very pleasant service and lovely food

We ate here on our first evening in Antwerp, stumbling on it when we went for a wander. The very pleasant waiters welcomed us and we sat in the "conservatory" area which was well heated on a cool evening. It overlooks the square in front of the cathedral and you get the lovely bells ringing at intervals. I ate cheese croquettes which were served with a fresh crispy salad, and then crab gratin, which came with just the right implements to crack the claws and extract the flesh from the nooks and crannies. The gratin was light, tasty and crispy on top. It came with mash but I couldn’t manage that. My partner really enjoyed his Flemish beef stew. We returned for lunch on Saturday before leaving. There is a weekend 3 course lunch deal, for €32, which my partner chose, it was tuna stuffed tomato, followed by cutlets with good vegetables, then profiteroles. He enjoyed it all. The portions for each course we’re generous. I only had one course of white asparagus (a Belgian speciality) with smoked salmon and hollandaise. It was really a really lovely dish and quite filling enough for me. The service on both occasions was efficient and very pleasant.

Excellent Restaurant, with great atmosphere, views and service

I come here when visitors are in town. I book so I can have a table next to the windows to have an amazing view of the square and cathedral. In the summer the outside is excellent. They have a great lunch special but I am usually there for dinner. The food is outstanding and well presented. They have traditional Belgian food along with other choices. Their mussels are amazing but I usually have to have the Flemish Stew. My friends usually leave saying it was one of their favorite Belgium food experiences. Service is always outstanding. I look forward to my next visit!

great restaurant in a great location, with a great name!

Food, service, ambience was all great. Our group consisted of two couples. The menu was fine with plenty of choice, and likewise for the wines. Reasonably priced dinner in what is quite a touristy area, so we were concerned it might be an overpriced, average fare tourist restaurant. The reality is completely different. Thank you, for a splendid evening. If we’re ever back in Antwerp (btw, it’s a great weekend destination) we’ll be back at this restaurant.

Excellent restaurant in excellent location

This restaurant, as the name suggests, is next to the Cathedral, it has good outside space and also an outside heated enclosed area, which is quite well furnished. I had the classic classic tomato and garnell dish which was very well presented, my partner had garlicky prawns, both were delicious. There is also a very good value lunch offer of two courses for €19.50, we would definitely return.
