FRESH FRESH FRESH that's the credo of Restaurant Meat Factory in Antwerp, located on the Grand place, right in the Centre of this beautiful city. MEAT the name says it all, at Meat Factory, there are several meat dishes on the menu. A true paradise for al
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! Tot de volgende keer! Julien Meat Factory

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

Livelli, ofwel Italiaans voor "laagjes", maakt voor u de lekkerste lasagna! We vertrekken van graan, malen dit ter plaatse tot bloem en persen dan onze lasagnevellen. Tevens kan u bij ons terecht voor een bordje verse charcuterie of huisgemaakte desserts.
We enjoyed a delicious meal at Livelli yesterday evening and I can't say enough in its favour. The food is hand-made from scratch and the menu specialises in Lasagne. There were four of us. Two had the vegetarian version, one the special duck lasagne and one the salmon version. Each one was served with a salad which complemented the lasagne. The wines are carefully selected and complemented the meal. Each one of us enjoyed the meal. One of our group arrived really late (having been to a funeral) and due to the kind and helpful arrangements in the kitchen/diningroom was served his meal on arrival. The restaurant is beautiful, with a hexagonal design on the walls and floor and air space above. Another important point is that the seating is not crowded and no one was disturbed by loud music or other guests. I can't wait for the next opportunity to go back there.

we went to morso for a nice dinner and were welcomed really friendly by the attentive staff. Throughout the evening, there was a serene atmosphere even though the street nearby was relatively busy. We were able to watch the sunset from our seats outside and the waiters were all very likable :)

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

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

very good restaurant, maybe the choice on the menu isn't that big when you don't like to eat fish, but still, better not a large menu and bad food than a smaller card en really good food ! They also have a menu every day, really cheap and really good !

Well I went there with a friend, we had cheese and shrimp croquettes; Though these were OK the presentation is a bit akward.. Salad with that is served in a bowl which takes most of the dish.. so it's fighting.. I ordered the chicken citron, which looks like a chicken soup with black onions.. while my friend ordered the tagliata di manzo, which apparently was good.. however I thought I had many chicken looked like leftover over a old chicken and what was very watery and cooked in something which tasted like a lemon sauce.. there were more ingredients which I could not identity.. Not to be recommended by me.. Service was impeccable thoughDear Enrique, First of all thank you for your review which always helps us to look at our business from a customers perspective. We had your reservation booked on a larger table inside but you opted for a smaller table outside which are not made for dining but we always try to find a way to accommodate our guests on the smaller space hence the fact that the server did not lift of the salad bowl of your plate.The salad bowl accompanying the croquettes is brought to you on the plate, but is meant to sit beside your plate with croquettes..so you could just lift it off and put it next to the plate to have more space on your plate for the croquettes. The server could have done this for you but its not rocket science.. But the remark is well noted and we will instruct the servers to always do this from now on, or at least ask the guest to do it for them....I am sorry to hear that you did not liked the Poulet Citron. As the description on the menu states traditionally made of chicken thighs with all the ingredients mentioned on the menu...Poulet Citron: Zacht gegaarde en ontbeende kippendijen met gekonfijte citroen, venkel, kurkuma en olijven. Geserveerd met gebakken aardappeltjes (Poulet Citron: Softly cooked and boned chicken thighs with candied lemon, fennel, turmeric and olives. Served with baked potatoes)We are more than happy to explain more about "fennel, kurkuma, olives , confit lemon, and the difference between onion and olives...." at your next visit.The chicken thighs are slowly cooked, and the sauce for a Poulet citron... yes tastes like.....lemon ( fyi..citron is the french word for lemon).I am pleased to read that your friend enjoyed the other dish and the service was impeccable and I hope I can invite you to give us a next try with a dish you are more familiar with.Kind regards,Ernst AbenOwner
