Despite the huge competition of trendy places , the Minerva maintains quality, hospitality and class. Most of the people are real antwerp upperclass, well dressed. Service, closely surveyed by the owner is a pleasure. I have been in this place at least 25 times and still I feel like entering a world apart. Pls. Keep it like this.

Enjoyable traditional cuisine with exquisite ingredients, prepared and served with pride. A bit pricy to our taste, nevertheless.
