Great dining experience with a careful selection of fresh ingredients and excellent wines. Very attentive and friendly service. The small selection of original dishes on the menu ensures a great quality in the proposed dishes

after reading some of the reviews,I had already an idea what to expect.I was not disappointed,excellent food,service,and lovely wines to compliment each dish.My wife wanted to go for the 5 course,me the 7,so we compromised with the 6.On reflection,probably the 5 is the way to go.It's up to you,whatever you decide,you won't be disappointed.Compliments to the chef.

I take my hat off for this chef. Using seemingly simple ingredients to create dishes I will not easily forget. A starter of old tomato varieties, Burrata, shrimps and tarragon as a new take on the classic dish was heavenly. Accompanying home baked bread was like the famous Maltese bread and the best I've tasted since long times. Strawberries and... More

This was our first visit to De Godevaart in Antwerp and it certainly won’t be our last! We had booked a table there because of the good reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. We loved it and had a fabulous evening. The food was simply fantastic and so was the service. Friendly, attentive and professional, but not... More

Lots of staff and the service was excellent with the chef explaining each course to us. The food was well presented as you would... More

We choose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. We good our aperitif when we came in and before we had time to order, we got our first amuse! We took the 7-course with accompanying wines. It was a great culinary experience: great food, fresh ingredients and a super mix of different tastes. After the desert, we got a selection of... More

The location and setting is not at all perfect. The place is in a rather declining neighbourhood, and the restaurant needs an urgent paint redesign. The service is perfect, nice atmosphere. We did order a 5 course menu with wine. The food was well prepared but we did not like the acid ingredients who were present in every course. The... More
