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

Place looks cozy from the outside and is reasonably priced, but it is really dissapointing! There was one waiter who was not friendly at all, after being seated he asked for drinks first. I orded a beer and gf ordered spring water, both were delivered to our table without a bottle; might have been the water from the tap! He... More

This place was very disappointing. The mix grill plate was terrible and the price is a robbery considering the quality of the food.

Don't be deceived, this place looks quite nice from the outside but it's different story inside. The hodgepodge of a food menu and mediocre drinks selection. No wine list other then the watered down house wine. That bad enough but the worst about this place is the terrible service by people that clearly are in the wrong industry as the... More

Had the €18 lunch meat special of the day deal and it was very good! Succulent chops, tasty soup and the perfect amount dessert!
