Senzelle

Small restaurant with typical Belgian cuisine. Since it is just husband (cook) and wife (service) : Reservation required.

Reviewed By Peyton L

A group of four of us were visiting Antwerp and were told this was a nice place for food. We walked to the restaurant and arrived at 11:55 noticing the place was dark and no one was inside. We weren't sure if for some reason it was closed (perhaps a private party?) but as it was so close to opening we waiting outside for the remaining five minutes. At noon a woman opened the door and immediately had a frown on her face. We smiled and asked if they were serving lunch. She immediately became agitated and asked if we had reservations (no), how many seats we needed (4 - no way!) and scolded us that we should of called for reservations. The issue isn't that they couldnt accommodate us - it was the response. Surely this business has had others attempt to walk in and get a seat, no? Not to mention that, as the restaurant was literally shut down, I'm not sure how we could of secured a reservation to begin with. If you don't have any availability that's fine... a simple not today would suffice vs. admonishing us on the street. The above doesn't really do justice to the interaction. The lady was just downright rude. Please look at my other reviews because you can see that I do not have a history of making negative reviews for trivial issues - this might be my first 1 or 2 star review. Maybe this lady was just having a rough day but no matter what I wouldn't return regardless of how good the food is.Hello,I'm sorry you feel like I was being rude. I just told you we didn't have a table for 4 since they were already booked. You looked really surprised and asked if you could do 2 tables of 2, on which I replied that wouldn't be possible because there is only 1 person in the kitchen and 1 doing service and we don't want people to have to wait too long and that can happen if everybody comes at noon together. It's just how we try to run our restaurant efficiently.We always start in the morning to do preparations but we turn on the light when we open because otherwise people could be confused if we are open or not.I really don't think I scolded at you or neither was I agitated. We are just a very small business and places are limited so making a reservation can assure you of a table. You can call or email for reservations. (link on tripadvisor)Regarding your friend writing a review on Google saying there was nobody inside, like you said, I just opened the door. I was expecting a table of 4 at 12, 4 at 12.15 and 3 tables of 2 at 12.30. Often this are business people who don't have a lot of time so we limit our tables during lunch. It is a shame you had to write a review about something that could have been avoided if you just made a reservation. Kind regard, Nathalie

't Fornuis

Reviewed By Simon M

This is a smallish restaurant in the centre of Antwerp. The chef comes and explains what dishes they have in a very friendly and passionate way. The food they serve is very classic style of cooking, good honest food excellently executed.It's clear to see why they have held a Michelin star for so long

Ernest Bistro

Reviewed By bbnewman44

excellent food - I had the mussels, my husband fish and chips, my son a steak, and my daughter a croquet Monsier. The homemade mayonnaise for dipping fries (chips) was delicious, too! They were so friendly, the server translated the menu and explained all dishes to us in English. Also, accommodating to our children's picky customization. Service was prompt. The chef came out later and you could tell they all very much take pride in preparing excellent food.

Le Steak '17

The specialty of this restaurant is meat which is prepared on ' the Big Green Egg ', a 3000 year old clay oven.

Reviewed By Tim T

We went there with reservation for a Friday evening. This is a casual midrange steakhouse but costs more like fine dining. It was not busy when we arrived at 8 PM but gradually the restaurant filled with only a few empty places. The meat options arrive with one of the partners of the restaurant and he explains them to us. The price is per person and varies depending on steak. We opted for the Australian ribeye at his recommendation despite me eyeing the more expensive Irish Tomahawk steak. We ordered a bottle of 'Enemigo mio' which was a delicious pairing. We also had an order of bitterballen which is a crispy fried crumb exterior surrounding a very hot beef filling. The steak arrives sliced with a small portion of fried vegetables and a bearnaise sauce and peppercorn sauce. This is accompanied by two bowls: one of frites (of course!) and the other of a mixed green salad. Overall we enjoyed the meal and service and would recommend.

Billie's Bier Kafetaria

Friday the thirteenth in December 2013 Billie's Beer Kafetaria opened the doors. The original name was still just "the Kafetaria. " Billie's Beer Kafetaria is part of a dying breed of genuine, old-fashioned brown cafes. Billie's Kafetaria Beer is not just

Billie's Bier Kafetaria is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best beer bars in this most beautiful of cities. The bar looks super, an authentic traditional interior set over two floors with great decor and furnishings including a cool looking serving bar and innumerable beer posters and enamels adorning the walls and there's plenty of seating options spread throughout this bar, it's a great bar perfect to unwind in. My twin brother Stephen and I were here on a Monday night, greeted warmly by a very pleasant member of staff who took our order of a beer each,we opted to have an ipa from Founders Brewery, these were served in excellent condition being iced cold and sparkling and we just chilled out and soaked up the great vibe in this busy and popular pub. Ive been to this bar on many occasions over the years, the range of beers is always interesting and the quality of the way the beers is served is always exceptional, this probably explains why this bar is always busy.My ipa was outstanding, a rich,hoppy and well balanced beer bursting with taste and very easy on the tongue, an ipa with character. We both really enjoyed our beers and although we only stayed for the one beer and our visit was only fleeting as on every other visit to Billie's Bier Kafetaria we had a great time. Billie's Bier Kafetaria is really easy to locate on a street called Kammenstraat. A great bar,if your in the area well worth a visit.

Het Gerecht

Gastronomy Lunch menu 2 or 3 cours Only Menu 4 or 5 cours

Reviewed By WimLeuven

If your restaurant is nr 1 on trip advisor you can expect some critical guests and on our visit we were certainly not convinced it deserved this titel. We were here on a saturday night with some friends. We were invited in friendly and the service itself was very good except for the timing (see later). There is only a choice in 4 or 5 course menu with optional cheese. We opted for 4 and cheese added (cheese to replace desert is also possible) so in total we still had a 5 course meal. When we refused the wine pairing (this time mainly because we had to drive home after) we had a first sign that they did not like it. We chose a bottle of our own and than experienced this : the first two courses came fluent and then we had to wait an hour before the main arrived and only after i asked why it took so long ? Meanwhile they emptied our bottle very quickly into our glasses hoping that we were to order a new one. But we had decided it in advance to keep alcohol very low that evening. SInce it was a white wine and we were waiting to finish it with our main course and the hour waiting time our wine was warm when it finaly arrived. The cheese and dessert arrived then straight after meaning we had to eat the three last courses in half an hour time. It all felt a bit strange this timing and attitude altough i never had the feeling they disliked us, it was just that feeling of not doing what they expected that sent us home with a bad taste. Concerning the food it was good but to us experienced michelin stars eaters nothing came exciting some parts on the plates were even lacking of flavour, so on that part you can have a good plate of food but nothing worth to drive 100 km like we did for it.This is one i will not return to.

Het Gebaar

Reviewed By francien2015

Het gebaar (the gesture) serve wonderfull dishes. We especially enjoyed the starter and the main course. The desert are more a work of art. We food they were a bit to sweat but you will surely enjoy it... The starter tuna and mushrooms just were out of this world and tasted like the beach (tuna) and the fall (mushrooms). This was explosive!!

This restaurant is in a small street close by the big market and the Meir. The servant was very friendly and we were served in no time. I had a giant meat brochette. The look was rather strange, but the taste was very good. The plate was served with fries and some salade, both not the best, but the brochette covered it all. The restaurant also offers mix brochette (meat, chicken, sausage) and one with salmon...all very big, so make sure you have a good apatite. My wife took a Greek salade with goat cheese, although it came with some pasta too, which was a kind of mismatch. Could also be better presented, but taste was good.Hello Kriss, Thank you for your review and your comment, we Try to match different styles and taste. Not always sure what people want. You gave us new things to think about, work iT out and create improvent.Thx for your visite and hopefully we can welcome you again.Regards, Danny & Ludwig

Reviewed By K5697PTrobinf

Waiters were very attentive to us (they suggested us to take off our jacket, asked if everything was fine, etc.). The food was tasty but not enough potatoes with the burgers (could be enough for non starving people). We didn't waited the time for a long time.Well located (in the grote markt), and very cosy restaurant (not to big like canteens). Toilets were cleaned.I really recommend it.Bedankt voor de toffe recensie! We doen ons uiterste best om iedereen zo goed mogelijk te bedienen en zijn blij te horen dat u alles goed vond!
