Variable service but the food was very good. Enjoyed the Belgian stew and the onion soup. Seemingly good value so surprised by other negative reviews.

This restaurant is one of the worst I have been to. It is overpriced, the staff is unfriendly, and the food is not always fully cooked. It is quite disappointing since it looks great from the outside and the view from the restaurant on the cathedral is very nice. The only food that wasn't tasteless were the pancakes. Otherwise, it...

It's just the worse experience in Antwerp! I live here for a long time and I never had something like this. If you want mossels, go somewhere else. Staff is friendly but the food is just not good.

We were stupid enough to choose this restaurant! Please, do not repeat our mistake choosing to eat at this horrible place! We have ended up asking for the bill without eating the food which was very bad! The waiter was very aggressive!

We went here for lunch yesterday and sat in the conservatory. Once settled with outdoor clothing off, the waitress came to the table and said very rudely in Flemish . You can't sit there , it is a table for four. Yet the table for four next to us was only occupied by two. We were not offered another table.... More

As we enter the restaurant at 8.30 pm we are "greeted" by a lady who makes us feel that we are not welcome as it is late ... We order two soups and two dishes to be told 10 minutes after that there's no more soup and no more rice for one of the dishes . We decide to go... More

Bacino is located next to the Antwerp cathedral. The food was ok but nothing spectacular. We went for the mussels formula with starter and dessert for 25 EUR. The service is quite slow but friendly.

We came across what appeared to be a quirky looking place that had several other tables of diners already so thought we would give it a go (should have checked TA first!). Menu was a little unusual but we were happy to order 2 onion soups and a salad with stuffed tomato and shrimp. The soup was horrendous (definitely made... More

Went there with my parents. I have been in many restaurants all over Europe, but this was without a doubt the absolute worst "meal" i ever had. The people were very unfriendly, bread was hard as stone, salad was brown and covered with mayonaise to hide it, wine was sour and undrinkable, my father almost threw up when eating a... More
